Dortmund first team

This is good news. Means he is progressing well. If he is training with the First team now, and continues to progress at this rate, we could definitely see him as a first team regular (sub if not starter) by the 2017-18 season. Which would be huge. Having a regular out-field player playing at one of the better teams in the world right before the World Cup.

Being that he plays the kind of football that Jurgen wants IN Germany. I think we very easily could see him in Russia 2018.

You also had this, which I think went unnoticed on these boards in October.

top 50

He'll be 19 in Summer of 2018.

Big deal, he is training with the first team. GZ trained with the first team for a while at Arsenal, Kyle Scott has done the same at Chelsea at that age.

If i understand correctly, Pulisic's situation is different than Kyle Scott's. Scott moonlights with Chelsea's senior team for the occasional practice. Pulisic will be training with the BVB senior team on a permanent basis.

Great to hear he continues to impress and move through the ranks. I've always been optimistic that he would be in the mix for 2018....LD's doppelganger.

I really want to see how Pelosi, Polster, Payne and Yedlin develop over the next two years.

We could have a very nice team by 2018. The spine looks good...we need a couple guys to step up at left and right back to really feel good about the starting 11.

Still, it is just training...I won't get excited until he makes the bench.

Pelosi is going nowhere... He was a top prospect at Liverpool before the broken leg but he is not the player he used to be. The others still have a chance.

thats an oversimplification. He's still got a shot. Can't take away a player's soccer brain, and a few years out he's getting it back. Give him time, he's not permanently injured. He has been playing pro soccer.

I watched him play every game last season with the Quakes. His game to game growth was very impressive. i think there is more there than you think, but there is a ton of quality competition in the nats midfield.

JK I'm sure will float the idea of trialing at LB as a potential nats option. I think Pelosi has a real solid upside.

Everybody in Quake land is curious to see where Kinnear intends to play him this season. Kinnear sees him as an 8. I think we're going to see a noticeable improvement in his attacking skills this season...just saw a glimpse of it towards the end of last season.

Liverpool used Pelosi as a LM & LB during his time there. He was also used as a LB during the Olympic Qualification tournament. So it wouldn't be too far out of bounds for JK to try him there for the Sr. National team....especially if he continues to improve w/ the Quakes.

Yep, i thought he looked very solid at LB with the U23s...I was impressed with his tenacity and 1 v 1 defending...also real solid distribution and combo play. I thought he was one of our top U23 players when he was at LB.
