Look. I promise this thread is going to be a little more diverse in the future, but I’m a sports fan at heart, which means I’m superstitious. Christian Pulisic and Borussia Dortmund started the season last weekend on TV, we highlighted it, he played like a champ. They make their home debut today on TV, so we’re highlighting. It would be un-American to risk breaking the cycle. That and, well, people love Pulisic and click on the articles. I guarantee you that we won’t have a Match of the Weekend thread centered around Dortmund next weekend.
It’s officially official. Ousmane Dembele is a Barcelona player. Make sure to read Adam Snavely’s awesome piece on what that mean’s for Pulisic here. The dumbed down version is this: It’s Pulisic’s show to run now. Alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the pressure of creating and finishing scoring chances is going to fall squarely on his young shoulders this season. Pressure hasn’t fazed the 18-year-old yet in his career, so this season should be really fun. The way it’s started off has us dreaming of possible Best XI’s and Balon d’Or consideration. However, we’ll have to settle for a “world-class” tag if this keeps up.
