    Paco Alcacer looks like a shadow of himself today.

    Same for Sancho, who gets replaced.

    Uh, why is their race significant?

    Nice ball from Puli to Hakimi that sends it to Paco who somehow got the ball to bounce from crossbar to ground.

    Puli made that pass from the ground. Difficult one.

    Nice. I didn't say it's unheard of, just unusual. The rules allow three subs, and I can see saving one until very late, but if I'm down 1-0 at 80 minutes with three subs to burn, I've got some explaining to do.

    Admittedly I'm not watching this particular game, just following along ...

    OMG Paco so f**cking SLOW

    Got ball by himself against tired legs and they caught up to him.

    No wonder why Barca let him go.

    First defeat at home for the Energy Drink guys this season. It's quite the accomplishment. I still think this Dortmund is better than the current Chelski.

    Saw the good and bad from Pulisic today. Had some key moves that helped create a couple good scoring chances. But he also dribbled into trouble and lost the ball naively a few times.

    Pulisic really unlucky. He has some nice passes that forwards can't finish for whatever reason.

    That has been his story at Dortmund.

    Sancho should have done much better with that nice pass from CP. At least get a shot off.

    If he's fit to play, he should be able to outrun 90 min legs. Especially since he's already a few steps ahead of them.

    Paco is just slow......dude got no pace. I am now convinced he's an excellent poacher, nothing more.

    There is a reason why he doesn't start


    Edit
    It was good to see Weigl back. He had a great game

    At 1:31 below Pulisic is being triple teamed and slips a ball through to Hakimi who passes to Alcacer for a shot off the crossbar. Pulisic also played a cross field pass to Sancho for a pass, though that is not in the highlight video.

    Pulisic had a couple of nice defensive interventions in his time on the pitch. Some of RB Leipzig's best chances late though did seem to come when he was pressing up the field, but the player he was marking managed to play a line splitting pass. Its not that he was necessarily doing anything wrong, just something I noticed. He was also dispossessed on the dribble a couple of times.

    The dude gets mugged and you'd rather he stay politically correct on an online messaging board? That's what's important to you?

    He decided to bring race into it. I am asking why.
    I'm sorry he got mugged, but that doesn't give him the right to smear an an entire ethnicity with this stereotype of violent Arabs overrunning Germany. That's not political correctness. That's simple humanity.

    But did he smear an entire ethnicity or did he describe the two guys that mugged him

    It's the 21st century. Race is everywhere. Whenever someone shoots a bunch of people, guess what is the question everybody is asking in the comments?

    Someone was shot now? That escalated quickly.
