    Social media is a great because it means that we can hear from all the epidemiologists and public health experts who really know what they are talking about, like the ones on this thread. Who else would proclaim so confidently?

    I would say 6 or 7 out of 10.

    20 EPL/CL games, 6 goals and 4 assists; those are above average stats. He did well for his fist year in a new/bigger league.

    For a $70M man, I expected a little more; but he was injured half of the time so can't put out bigger numbers if you're not on the field more.

    I think staying healthy might be his biggest challenge going forward.

    I say season and a half.

    The season prior, I think we all agreed he exhausted himself between club and NAT duties. He played like what, 4500-5000 minutes in during the '17-'18 season?

    His current long lay off is quite concerning. If anything, he's a guy that could really benefit from this long break.

    Im happy with Pulisic season I think he came in and showed that he can handle the EPL level. You expect Pulisic to be able to build off of that.

    The one thing we all want to see is him play more. If he can stay healthy he has the skill to do that.

    Very disappointing overall, but most of that is due directly to injuries.

    Production and play weren't bad, all things considered, in the minutes he did get. The G/A numbers are inflated a bit, since what he really did was generally do a good job overall, and then have a match in which he had a hat trick. That skews things, when just looking at those big numbers.

    But yeah... would/could have had a damn good year if not for injuries IMO. The blueprint was there starting in the Supercup final against Liverpool, and delivered on in the hat trick match. Just not enough time to fully express his skills this season.

    Maybe they do resume the postponed matches and he puts a little run together?
