and he's not the fastest, totally agree, but he's crafty, he's like a Ribery.

come to think of it, Thompson is pretty crafty too, shoot i forgot about that guy

Ribery in his prime was very fast.

Ribery even a couple years ago not in his prime was very fast. Scarface as I called him.

Man, after watching his game yesterday, his runs remind me of Landon's runs. Pulisic was all over the field.
This is exciting.

Pulisic was blowing by defenders yesterday. I think he is much quicker than people think.

Got chills as I watched. Not because of his play, though it was exciting, no the commentators mentioning he is eligible to play for Croatia (very highly doubtful ever crossed his mind but ...) and on the field with him .... Subotic! if our WCQ is during and international date, bring him in to cap him with full team JUST TO MAKE SURE!! LOL!

With the site being down almost a week lots to catch up on. Two big things this weekend that I think are related. Pulisic gets the start for Dortmund vs a top 4 team, and Juergen comes out and specifically says he doesn't know what position he's going to play Fabian at. Anyone think that Juergen is debating pulisic at lw with fab at lb? Could strength two spots at once.

I see him easing in pulisic, substitute appearances and the olympics over the Copa.

Dont think he is a starter. Maybe it's Nguyen who he deployed at the left in the friendlies but had him cut inside. Still prefer Johnson at LM. We need to try out or LB options like Shea, Villafana.... or ream.

As Fabian is the most talented LM, LB and RB in the pool it'll be interesting to see what we do going into Copa America but for the games against Guatemala I don't know how we can roll out anything other than Fabian at LM and Bedoya at RM given the form that they're both in right now.

Pulisic has to be in the squad and starting for US in March if he is not allowed with the young guns. Mid season and playing with Borrusia. Probably just Fab would be able to crack the 18 for Borrusia from our pool. Why prolong the inevitable? Give him the 10 and start. He is already light years ahead mentally over most of our players.

Hang tight on Bedoya though...he's producing goals from the CAM spot. Maybe JK doesn't see it that way, but he should consider playing him there.

Pump your brakes. He has made 1 start. Why don't we see how the situation unfolds as opposed to trying to rush him into USMNT.

If you read some of Jurgen's quote's it looks like he chose his words very carefully. He mentioned one of the challenges was keeping him grounded and not getting over confident. I personally hate this thought process (its the MLB style veterans always get the benefit of the doubt).

Yes but even the training environment he gets is probably a higher level than what some of the mls league games have. If not the whole league in general. Mls will just be starting. I understand the no rushing deal. I do. But I say he should start him. Two years before cup. Imagine the experience he'd have
