Frankfurt vs. Borussia Dortmund: A clash of (sort of) titans

Getting ready for the Frankfurt match tomorrow by looking at the various Twitter accounts of various BVB players. Who are my favorite players, you might ask? Well #1 would probably be this kid from Pennsylvania who's, like, kinda good and, like, kinda dribbles past people.  Number two would probably be Julian Weigle because he's handsome and smooth and usually makes passes with the precision of a hand surgeon (though maybe not the hand surgeon who operated on my wrist since he actually broke the bone more). I like Bürki mostly because he's passionate and seems like a cool guy and reminds me of my friend Ross Mckinstry from high school. I kind of like Sahin because, again, he seems cool. Not because he's that great, but because he seems cool. And I would like Toprak if he was a better defender, i.e. faster, because he's also a cool guy. In fact the only one I'm not sure of is Götze, because he seems a liiiiiiiiiitle full of himself.

But anyway. The game tomorrow. Or rather the game last night. Last night I went to the UW Stanford game and it was raining and I got there in the 60th minute which was great because the last half hour was insane. The keeper got a red card. UW was pressing hard and had various chances to tie it up. The UW coach got a yellow card, which made me so happy because the coach should be passionate enough to get yellow cards. Bruce Arena should've gotten red cards fuming about all the shit that happened in CONCACAF. But no, he just stood there being fat.

Ok Jesus sorry back to Pulisic and BVB and the Frankfurt game tomorrow. BVB NEEDS TO WIN. THEY NEED TO PLAY WELL. PULISIC NEEDS TO SCORE. God they played shitty against Apoel. It was such a disgrace.

I've seen two websites now that predict Pulisic to start on the right wing. But I'm sceptical of this since Yarmolenko always starts on the right wing even though he's the slowest player in the Bundesliga. I love Yarmolenko! But he's old and slow. He makes some dreamy passes but he does not get to balls well and and is overall much less effective that Pulisic. I mean real talk: would your rather have someone that can make passes and score goals? Or would you rather have someone who can make passes and score goals and who's fast as fuck and can track back and beat six defenders? I mean, come on. Yes, Pulisic does not speak Russian and that's a point against him, but Yarmolenko doesn't speak German and that's 50 points against him.

Can we all must learn Polish?

Well, less than 24 hours to the game. Get pumped. Eat some soup. Have a Larabar. And get some touches in.

Christian Pulisic and Gordon Lightfoot and Revierderby Woes

Hey Pulisic fans,

Man, what a rough stretch it's been. First this happened:
New post (Christian Pulisic scratched from Dortmund squad with muscle injury) has been published on Fifa World Cup - https://t.co/ClVnwexzE9pic.twitter.com/pA8n70KV3S — FIFA Events (@FIFA_Events) November 25, 2017 Then, Pulisic missed the next game against Tottenham, a game that didn't really matter as far as standings went but was huge for team morale. And guess what, CHA BOI (me) WAS AT THAT GAME!

Yes, Pulisic fans, I actually went to a game. In Dortmund. I actually went to the city of Dortmund, and I actually had a ticket to the Borussia Dortmund vs. Tottenham game, and I actually went to the stadium, and I actually sat in a seat, and my eyes actually took in the game and the Yellow Wall and the fanfare and all of it.

But, of course, Dortmund lost. And Pulisic didn't play.



Luckily Pulisic was back for the Revierderby against Schalke, as evidenced here:

Leverkusen vs. Dortmund Preview: Pulisic is Due

Tomorrow is the day Dortmund are finally going to turn it all around. Why? Because Peter Bosz is basically going to get sacked no matter what, because nobody expects anything from Dortmund anymore, because people expect the world out of Bayer Leverkusen given their record at home, and for a number of other reasons. And I might as well give you those reasons: Gotze is out injured, Aubameyang is going to miss the game with a red card, Marc Bartra apparently doesn't know how to play defense, and Dortmund has played horrible second halves lately while Bayer have played incredible second halves. I think that's about it.

All of this has coincided with what one article called a "curse" for Pulisic that's existed since the US failed to qualify for the World Cup. I have just one thing to say about that: Fuck the World Cup. For now. The US was such a bad team, with so many underperforming players, that it was awful to watch them and they didn't deserve to go to the Wo…

Dortmund vs. Hannover preview, Should Pulisic replace Angela Merkel as chancellor of Germany?

Hello Pulisic Fans,

And welcome to the Straight Outta Hershey official preview for the Bundesliga Matchday 10 game between Hannover 96 and Borussia Dortmund. Today's preview will focus heavily on three things: 1) What will happen in the game, 2) What will happen with Christian Pulisic, and 3) Am I moving to Germany?

But first, let's start with a GIF: It's been a quiet half for Christian Pulisic so far, but here is a gif of him faking out 2 #SGE players. #BVB#SGEBVBpic.twitter.com/uMuvGpL5I5 — GolazoJuice (@GolazoJuice) October 21, 2017 I'll give you a moment to collect your jaws off the floor or get the urine out of your boxers or whatever it is you need to do, and then we'll move forward.

....

Good. What's so special about this GIF? The fact that it's really not that special. Pulisic does this kind of stuff all the time. And I love to use italics because they make things so much more dramatic.

But let's get away from Pulisic for just a moment and talk…
