    Would like to see him finish better..haha jk unlucky twice tonight. Great turn and finish from jozy.


    Concerned about his playing time at Dortmund. Definitely awesome getting to practice against that team but going to be tough to get too much time. Hope they make good decisions about when he gets loaned and where he goes. Going to need more consistent playing time soon.
    Yeah, I was surprised he didn't end up on a loan especially after all the moves Dortmund made in the transfer window.

    Ha dude, I was gonna say. Hit two posts today, has multiple goals for a top 15 club in the world and 3 international goals at 17.
    He's for real..speed, skill, decision making...strength will come.
    It's amazing how strong he plays for his size. Tracked back on that one today and then there was this...

    Good point. I've tried, but just can't get into MLS. I guess I'm a soccer elitist....EPL, La Liga, Bundesliga is pretty much all that I watch.

    I only really catch the really big games. The timing is terrible with work, then on the weekends I always find myself doing something else. I'll go out of my way for some of the bigger games, but tough for me to watch too much. I try every year...

    I work at home a majority of the time so it's nice and easy for me to catch any European games that are on during the week. And it's great waking up on a Sat/Sun morning and there's soccer on starting at 630am. I'm usually not awake until the 9am games but with a kid on the way, I have a feeling I'll be catching a lot of these 630am games real soon...

    Saw highlights and his assist. This kid is about to get hype like no player in this country's history. He play well besides that?

    Yea he was creating all kinds of scoring chances the whole game..the team from Poland was not good but he's still proving he can play on europes biggest stage.

    I guess the concern about Pulisic not getting enough playing time isn't much of a concern just yet. Starting in his 3rd straight game for Dortmund today...

    Yeah man, it was a nice cross to set up the 2nd goal. It's amazing how calm he is with the ball....even when playing Real fucking Madrid! Still can't believe this is an 18 year old American. Crazy.

    How's Chicago treating ya?

    Yeah, I mean, we have never had a player play at this level, let alone a kid. Pretty crazy

    Good time. Was there for a conference but got out a bit. Hit up Wrigley Sunday then was out and about a bit in the evenings. Good time. Nice city. Not sure how I haven't been in so long...

    Crazy that MLS limits teams to 4 charter flights per season. That league is such a joke. Really hard to take it seriously with crap like this in addition to their "designated player" nonsense and the league existing as a single entity.

    Pretty cool they are playing in Cuba. I didn't know about this game until it started popping up on Twitter over the past day or so. I think I saw Green is starting. I like it. But yeah, beat it, Wondo.

    Gonna be talking to myself tonight it seems.

    This 3 back formation isn't gonna work, especially if Mexico dominates possession early

    Very very cool to see the players get a combined team pic before the game.

    Yep

    Bradley needs to be tougher...heard that before? And I have no clue why we're trying to play a wide open game with these guys. They have numbers every time
