Apparently Christian Pulisic is injured. Which I find interesting, because how can you injure someone whose flesh and blood are not of this world? To injure Christian Pulisic you'd have to touch him, and I've seen what happens when defenders try to touch Christian Pulisic. Generally the ball goes through their legs or they fall down or, in the rare cases when they do lay a by comparison leprous arm on him, they concede some kind of free kick in a dangerous era. So I don't know about this supposed shin injury. And if he is injured, I doubt it happened on the pitch. I bet Isak was playing a prank on him or something like that. Maybe Aubameyang. But I'd bet dollars to proverbial donuts he's not actually injured.
His presence was of course missed on the field against Wolfsburg yesterday, though his replacement, Jadon Sancho, killed it. I didn't know Jadon Sancho was that good. I'd seen him his first time on the field, but that was only a few minutes. I sincerely hope Jadon Sancho gets more playing time. I hope Pulisic starts in Yarmolenko's place on the right side, and Sancho and Toljan/Schmelzer combine for beautiful runs on the left, and Pulisic and Piszczek combine for beautiful runs on the right. How wonderful was it having Piszczek back in the lineup. He made most of the other players on the field look like children. He was a beast. One of his throw-ins must've been at least 60 yards (give or take).
The last thing I want to comment on in this post is the above video. The most interesting thing about this video is not the subject matter. Debate? What debate? There is no debate. Messi is worlds better than Ronaldo, and that is not opinion, that is not subjective, that's fact, like that fact that rocks are hard and Hannah Ferguson makes me almost go into cardiac arrest when I see her in a bikini. No, the debate is a tired subject. What's interesting about the video is that, despite being asked that question countless times, and despite being asked if Pulisic thinks he could be the next Messi, he takes it in stride. He acts like that's the first time he's ever heard that question. He handles the situation gracefully, tactfully.
And that's why CP is so damn good.
