Lol. Stop it.
Sancho is just at a higher level player than CP. he’s world class.
Yes, Sancho is pretty damn good right now.
But if I am going to spend 100M+, I want to see if he can do the same thing one more season.
I don't think he's leaving this summer.
He may not be... but if you’re United or City, you can “gamble” and spend ~100M now or risk it being ~150M in a year from now.
But there’s no gamble here. He’s more of a sure thing than Raheem was, just an issue if he WANTS to move. If he does, might as well move this summer because the interest will be there.
CP is a very good player,
Sancho is exceptional at the moment. He is not perfect. He is not some factor better than CP, he plays different position, different style, but he is really freaking good, and perhaps as important to his footie future, he's exciting to watch.
It takes nothing away from CP to point out how good Sancho is.
That said, Larsen looked like a donkey v. Mainz. Really bad passes, poor decision making and, despite a great work-rate, he killed more attacks than he created. He was the Ritchie Williams of BVB this weekend. Him and the D are not Bund winning quality. If BVB can pull it off it is down to Burki, Witsel, Sancho, Goetz, Reus and a few others. Hopefully CP gets another chance to contribute before season's end.
and no brain.
And, sadly, little courage...
What a world, what a world...
Larsen was so poor he made a few Schwatzgelb fans miss Pulisic.
musta been horrific
Larsen was well off even his usual stride. There were two (at least) wide open out-manned breaks that JBL ruined with passes that didn't lead enough in once case and was simply played at the wrong time in another. Those were the two most egregious but he really needed to recalibrate his passing boots.
Pulisic is back training with team and should be available for this weekend.
Let's hope he get some minutes.
I just wanna see him score or assist the goal that wins Dortmund the long awaited title.
What title are they winning?
The one to save any credibility for the Bundesliga
That would have been nice, but I am afraid that boat had sailed.
BM is running away with the title again.
This Chelsea team could look very different next season.
They have lots of young talents out on loan and doing pretty well that they can recall.
There's a guy in Germany, for instance...
I'm the biggest Pulisic fan around but Sancho is miles ahead of him now. They are similar athletically but Sancho has a much stronger IQ. He uses his skills intelligently, knowing when to slow down and when to accelerate, and how to exploit the slivers of space he creates with his dribbling.
Puslic is more like a greyhound on the dogtrack. He can't help but chase the mechanical rabbit.
Dortmund winning the leave wouldn't bring credibilty. Players and coaches going off to England and doing well bring credibilty to the league. German teams actually competing late into the CL and Europa leage bring credibilty.
Just like Dembele, he doesnt have to be better than them. He just has to do well.
Sure, I agree. Let's hope to puts it all together next season. Hopefully with Hazard as teammate.
Dortmund beating Munich shows Germany isn't a 1 horse race. German teams doing masterfully well in the CL/EL also helps this image.
Pep and Klopp under performed their first season in the EPL and they then showed their chops. I think Chelsea can do the same with Sari.
The player Chelsea should hope to keep is CHO. It might be good to risk losing him on a free. Start him and Pulisic and try and convince CHO to stay. Bayern will sign wingers and may all of a sudden not have room for him in 2020. Things can change quickly
I still can't believe his Dortmund days are almost over. Went by fast.
Agreed. Puli has the technique, the discipline, the desire, but on the field he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Unfortunately, I think intelligence is something you are born with. You either have it, or you don't. You can't learn to be smarter.
It doesnt change outsiders opinion much. The league had more respect when Klopp and Pep were in it and Klopp was getting 2nd but still advancing in CL.
This is an incredible week Bundesliga. Stars like Klopp, Pep, KDB, Sane Son, Gundogan Firmino, Keita, etc have all moved over in the last several seasons. Dortmund winning a week league while everyone is reloading talent and no one is competitng in Europe doesnt change much.
Anyone watching how Chelski is destroying the repeat Champions of the Czechs?
Someone who thinks third-tier Euro leagues are equal-or-better than MLS should have a watch.
4-1, and the Chelsea guys are not even sweating. And that's the first half.
