    Pulisic is going to have double digits goals and assist the rest of the season, and earn a big $ move to the top 2 leagues in the summer.

    Here are some bare statistics that sum up Pulisic’s magnificent rise throughout the year: the attacking midfielder scored six goals and assisted four in nine matches for his country. Further, he was involved in 13 of the 17 goals scored in the matches he featured this year, a staggering 76% involvement. The Pennsylvanian born is also the youngest non-German to make 50 appearances in the Bundesliga and has already hit the back of the net 10 times and assisted a further 9 for his club across 75 appearances. In September this year, Pulisic also scored Die Schwarzgelben’s historic 3000th goal. Still short of turning 19 then, the teenage sensation had already amassed 60 senior appearances for the club he joined in 2015. This was more than both Messi and Ronaldo had managed when they were 18! Further, he was scoring once every 359 minutes in all competitions, the 4th-best of any American since 1999. Capable of operating as a no.10 and as a winger on both the flanks, Pulisic has attempted 291 dribbles in Germany’s top division along with a pass success rate of 76.2%.
     
  5. Why do people (you're not the first one) post this useless comparison? What does it mean or reflect?

    Arsenal v Chelsea streaming on ESPN3, also on ESPN Deportes I believe, today at 8pm GMT, I guess Noon EDT. League Cup.

    See for yourselves if you think Pulisic would suit.

    Please god no on Schurrle to Spurs. He's terrible. I wouldn't even wish him on Yedlin and Newcastle.

    Looks like he’s starting.

    Can’t believe this got pushed to the 2nd page.

    If only it was on TV instead of the lame FA matches

    Watching Dortmund play has become a chore. Can't wait for him to move.

    Dortmund has played beautiful football for as long as I have been watching them. This is not pretty it is ugly and stodgy. I hate it.

    His only move, at this point, would be to a lower club. He has regressed this season and is simply an avg bundesliga attacker that can dribble.
