    Right, I'm saying that those facts alone imply that he sucks.

    But not as much as that Alcacer penalty did.

    Sargent sighting! Right next to the coach on the bench. Good placement.

    Pizarro shooting on Oelschlagel, attempting to break the experience differential record in a shootout.

    Paco really lost all his luster once he got signed for good.

    Well, they might not blame Pulisic for losing the shootout. Two saves by Pavlenka, pretty bad placement by Philipp.

    Not exactly making the keeper stretch on those first two PKs.

    Does Dortmund practice shooting all their penalties in the exact same spot?

    Bremen go 4 for 4. Nice shootout for them with two saves and an almost-save.

    Silver lining - more fixtures could help Sargent get minutes? But this is bad for CP's minutes.

    Yea, gonna have to put that mostly on the BVB keeper. I know everyone hates Burki... but that backup they gave the cup start to cost them big time.

    They didn't "give him the cup start" in the traditional sense - Burki and Hitz are apparently sick. It was an emergency.

    I'm not sure Burki would have saved any of those PKs. He may have saved the third goal though, although Burki is known to have bad days.

    Paging MLS " anyone got a keeper to be no.2 at Dortmund?"

    Played well in all three games, two goals, an assist, most important goal up to that point (until the next one was even bigger and then they blew the lead again). Obviously it's debatable, but there is at least evidence.
