    Perhaps, but to my mind, the correct way is to have a blazing attack that scores lots of goals supported by a defense that doesn't allow any. Dortmund lacks the latter, obviously.

    Also relevant is that Dembele is on the bench too.

    hugely biased, but the dortmund attack only seemingly came to life when pulisic came on?

    Agreed. But to be fair, that was without Reus.

    Well, Reus is back and he has more experience in these type of games. If they're still down late they can pull off defensive players and add Dembele and Pulisic and go wild.

    Must be going defensive here. On a brighter note, think about what CP and Dembele can do with fresh legs at the 75th minute.

    Kagawa, Reus, and Sahin have alot of experience, and have all been in great form recently. Even Reus coming off an injury is a better option on the wings than anybody else. Kagawa was immense in the first leg, and Sahin brings control to the midfield. The youngsters will get their time.

    Dembele makes a lot of mistakes, really bad ones. I can see him staying on bench unless needed badly.

    Yeah - almost like they are playing for one goal first and then to bring in one or more of the youngsters to burn the jets late. It's an odd idea - playing to win late rather than playing to win early and then try to hold on. We'll see!

    I see the Kagawa inclusion for sure with his form of late. Nuri Sahin is a very experienced player, but I don't know if he is more effective at this point than either CP or Dembele.

    I'm now open to Pulisic considering a new club this summer.

    There are good reasons for a mod to know your name, and there are bad reasons.

    Tuchel embarrassed himself in this tie, both games. And he's 4th in the Bundesliga. I don't think he warrants serious consideration for dismissal given his overall commitment to youth, which should ultimately pay dividends, but the talks about him getting poached by an even bigger club should be a probably will be put to a stop now. And eventually he will get canned if he doesn't cease the tactical and player selection mistakes he makes in big games.
