The kid can play. He's going to get real minutes this season.

He just scored. He's just 16 years old. He has been so on point with his through balls, dribbling, creativity, and composure.

Awesome. I like everything about it, except for that it comes from Rob Usry's twitter feed.

A lot of people think Carleton is better than Pulisic.

Carleton isnt old enough, and to my knowledge doesnt have a euro passport so those arent options to him. I know he was being looked at heavily by euro teams but too many obstacles were in the way. Barring injury Id be shocked if he wasnt in europe in 3 years.

I said it previously: Carleton is getting the right coach at the right time in Martino. Along with the fact that Atlanta has starters in his position coming in on DP money. Similar to the depth at dortmund, Carleton like Pulisic has to beat out more established players for time on the field with Atlanta. He will fit right in with Almiron and Villalba etc.

Using that as a first impression I would tend to agree.

Further to that, after watching the U-17's IMO he seems to be a me first all flash kind of player who if he gets shut down early by an opponent will drift out of the match entirely.

Of course he is still young and can change his ways, but that will take a lot of work and who knows if he is willing to put forth the effort. A training stint overseas may do him some good...if he pays attention he will see how much more he needs to grow to be an elite talent instead of some kid with a bit of skill.

So because he likes hip-hop, he can't be an elite player.
Lol Neymar and Pogba wear jewelry, dance, and rap all day and are 2 of the top 5 players in the world.

Fair enough....but I would be surprised from what I have seen so far if he goes on to prove me wrong. Here's hoping he does.

The picture is actually tremendous and I applaud it. Great to see athletes showing personality, and not to mention he got to incorporate a reference from a brand new Migos song because of the snow. Idk, the gold, diamonds, and brand name apparel would give me the impression that my man is oozing confidence, which is necessary to be the best. To quote the best boxer we've seen, "rumble young man, rumble."

I suppose it is more of a generational thing. I don't mind flash if you can back it up.

True, you need confidence...but to me that picture screams "look at me, I have made it!" If he continues to work hard and improve great...otherwise he will be passed by quickly and will be joining Freddy Adu in the Overhyped Overconfident Lounge for happy hour.

You referenced a famous boxer and someone else referenced Neymar and Pogba...well they made it and can flaunt it.
