Is Pulisic going to play Champions League next year? Right now it sure doesn't look like it.


I would say right now the most likely scenario for that to happen is for Chelsea to win the Europa league.

Well, he's at least starting today and has been pretty bright so far. Really does show that him being left out of the team has everything to do with the transfer.

That was an encouraging first 45 for him and Dortmund.

And much of it undone in the first seven minutes of the second. Not understanding how the commentators aren't crushing the right back for that egregious turnover before the goal.

He played decently. But he really needs to start becoming more out there. He has the ability to score goals and get assists. Chelsea fans will not be impressed if he doesn't provide Duce numbers for them next year. He is no longer a young up and coming player in the eyes of the EPL.

Unfortunately it seems Pulisic is not durable. Hopefully this isn't a trend throughout his career.

Pulisic had a good 20 minute cameo today. Game winning assist and a late goal to take the result for Dortmund. Hope this helps him get back to his best. Still don't think Dortmund will play much more than as a super sub for the rest of the season.

*sigh* Unfortunately, you are right. They don't want to mess up their money maker, so they will not play him that much.

This type of goal and his ability with both feet has me wanting him to play more centrally for the USA. He can still find teammates etc but he could use his ability to drift into more goal dangerous areas. Plus if Berhalter continues with a similar defensive setup that he has always used (a 4-4-2 out of possession with the "10" playing up top next to the striker), Pulisic is more goal dangerous if there is a turnover. I also think it saves him having to track all the way back to help. He's an attacking player let's see him attack not waste time defending which he has shown he isn't the best help defender in his own box anyway. I vote central until we have better players in the middle that force him to play out wide.
