The thing about Tilman that gets my interest is pretty simply that he produces. We have many guys who get a lot of minutes, play hard, cover ground and all that. But we have a much smaller group of players who put numbers on the board. Of course, I hope that he can keep improving and do the same thing at a higher level over time. But a guy who shows up on the scoreboard regularly is not someone you should ignore. I feel like we get an awful lot of talk about individual players abilities to do this or that, guys who hang in there, players we talk up because they look good and get solid minutes, but at some point we need to value what shows up on the scoreboard at least a bit and of our young guys right now, we've go Gio and Tillman actually putting up some numbers and a lot of other guys who look good and have nice moments but aren't showing up on the scorecard much if at all. We saw it last cycle where we had plenty of midfielders called up based on MLS performances while a guy like Mihailovic who was consistently putting numbers on the board in the same league had to wait his turn and Pefok got fewer chances than others who failed to score, some of whom were also dropped. Eventually, we need to start focusing on guys who actually produce in tangible ways with a bit less emphasis on guys who are good role players. Luca getting something on the board in La Liga with his recent assists (the last of which was very impressive) is a really big deal to me and something that puts him more firmly in the conversation for a bigger role. We can always find guys who can run hard and make basic plays to fit into the group and play a role. We need to focus on those who can bring more to the table first. Role players are by definition secondary types. When I start thinking about who was either out of the team or only a bit part player over the last cycle who could step up, the guys who actually produce goals and assists need to be first in line for chances, Tillman included.
