All touches of pulisic of today's game Pulisic vs Ingolstadt
https://vimeo.com/153619992


I didn't realize how quick he really is in that 5 to 10 yard range.

This kid is special. European Scouts have said that he is one of the best talents they have seen anywhere in the world the past 5 years, and he is American. Hell yeah.

Morris , Pulisic, and Nagbe are going to really vault the US attack into the next level.

WOW. just watched his touches. Calm on the ball, quick turn of pace in tight areas, good crossing, good runs, good stuff. I've always liked this kid. I am excited to see where he slots into our senior lineup if he breaks into the BVB rotation.

Won't be surprised if he starts in the next couple weeks. I predict 3 goals and 3 assists by seasons end for Pulisic. Which would be phenomenal.

I couldn't be happier....such a great combination of mental toughness, maturity and talent. It's happening even faster than I expected...crazy. The heir apparent for you know who...can't wait to see how it plays out.

I'm loving the talent coming in or soon to be coming into the nats...I'm freaking giddy.

The hard work Jürgen has done behind the scenes to help players like Pulisic (who has done 98% of the action himself) find the correct programs and places to play is very important. I could put this on the inane thread about firing JK- but seeing as how Pulisic is our new golden boy this is as good a spot as any. The integration of the youth programs etc is making it easier for these highly talented young players to get a forum for their development. And even though he is the best, Pulisic is not the only one. There are Akales etc all over the place. And with all due respect 2tone, (though I get your overall point about dynamic soccer) Morris and Nagbe are beneath this kid. I mean Morris can't even kick with his left, a la Zelalem. We still need others to push themselves the way Chris Pulisic is doing. Last but not least, he's still only 17 years old. Let's temper how much responsibility we want to give him too early. At this point he is just icing on the cake that is Bradley, Nagbe and Fabian.

Actually Morris can kick with his left foot. You guys have rarely seen him play. He has scored multiple goals with his left foot. Has received the ball and passed with his left foot and has a good first touch with his left foot. Is it as strong as his right? Nope, but that's usually the case with most players. And quite frankly Pulisic is quite a right footed player as well. With all due respect. But I could care less about saying one player is better than another player. I am quite happy to have high caliber players for the USMNT. Morris, Nagbe, and Pulisic are all highly talented players. And I feel Brooks Lennon will be joining that group of highly talented attacking players in the next couple of years as well.

All of the sudden, players are starting to emerge that will make us a dangerous team in 2018. Amazing how bleak it felt only last year.

Will be interesting to see how we come together for play-in vs Columbia with mixing young and old (although, I wonder if BVB would release Pulisic. They need to get healthy or it would seem doubtful.) If they wouldn't be open to releasing for Olympic qualifying, I assume that makes a senior usmnt call-up more likely.

Not sure if it's been mentioned....8th youngest debut in Bundisliga history. Wonder how many of those were playing on a Champions league team with a league title chase in the balance. Great stuff. Well done, Christian.

I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade, but taylor twellman, a dude i really respect

for his insight and for his performance for the nats

he said that the biggest news for our youths were morris signing and miazga signing

nothing about pulisic

listen I understand Morris and MIazga are HUGE talents. I'ts INCREDIBLE news that MIazga was valued as such by Chelsea

Miazga hasn't been given his first prep exam yet, he hasn't even spent time with the first team

Pulisic has done this and has played in a bundesliga match and to be quite honest has played VERY well.

I know he's young and we don't want to get psyched, but Morris hasn't played professionally and Miazga hasn't played pro for the team he's signed with in England

Pulisic is on the first team at age 17.

Twellman loves to hype the MLS guys. Nothin wrong with that. Twellman is a MLS dude through and through, he tends to get more excited about MLS transactions.

Twellman is a homer and not the brightest bulb in the box.

I think we should just all ignore Pulisic. I've had my heart broken too many times, I'm not going to get excited about him. Either he's going to get injured or he'll go to the EPL and never develop well or he'll pull a Bradley and go to the MLS for the big bucks and never reach his potential. I'm just going to be pessimistic and if things work out, I'll be filled with joy and surprise.

Yeah, sure, Morris has shown an incredible amount of potential, but the odds are stacked against him. He'll stay in the MLS until at least 2018, probably until January of 2019, and how many attacking players have stayed in a second-tier league until they were 24 and then turned out to be really good players?

Not ripping on Morris, just that Pulisic is already playing in a league that has an amazing track record at developing players and he's just 17. It's possible that he'll become a bust and be playing in the NASL in a couple of years, but it is actually possible that he become a world class player, like an Ozil, Goetze, or Reus. That is an actual possibility because it has happened. I don't know if we can say it's a possibility for some of these MLS guys like Morris.

Or you can look at it like the odds are in our favor that one of them FINALLY works out!

By the way I will admit I was wrong on the kids pace. He is a lot faster than I thought. He's definitely not world class pace, but he is plenty fast enough.

USAGunner, respect for circling back to this and noting that Pulisic's faster than you originally thought. No he's not Bale or Douglas Costa but he's got enough pace to play out wide. Still, remains to be seen if that's his best position for USMNT.
