The Only Blog Devoted to Christian Pulisic

Guys, I have to admit something, and I don't think you're going to like it: I don't Google Pulisic that much anymore. I used to Google him at least 5-10 times a day. But now every time I Google him the same shit comes up: transfer rumors. And I don't want to hear about Pulisic transfer rumors. I just want to read about what Christian Pulisic does when he actually touches the ball. Because that's the purest thing about being a Pulisic fan, watching him straight beat someone one on one, or one on two, or one on four.

Apparently it hasn't been happening a lot lately. I haven't gotten to watch the games in their entirety since I've been working. And I could go back and watch them in their entirety on same ghetto-ass Russian site, but it's tough when you already know what the score is and who scored the goals and at exactly what time. So I've missed Dortmund games lately. Which is messed up. I feel like I'm cheating on the team or something. Everything's happening so fast, with Marco Reus back and Andre Schurrle somehow playing well and new players, it's like when you're dating someone and they go away on a study abroad and they come back and you barely recognize them. But who's changed? Have I changed? Did they change? Aren't we all changing, all of the time?

Dortmund play Atalanta Bergamo on Thursday at 2:05pm Guadalajara time, and I have to watch that game because I'm scheduled to write about it for Fear the Wall. Obviously I also want to watch it, but I have to watch that game closely, take notes, be attentive. Hopefully pulisic plays. There has been some talk lately about his "poor form," but, um, what about this:

I'm confused. Is this poor form? Does that ball have eyes? Was that ball just guided by someone at the fucking Pentagon between a menagerie of defenders right onto Michy Batshuayi's foot?

Also, what to make of this stat:

Again, I'm confused. Usually being at the top of a list of things like dribbles completed is a good thing. But maybe I'm missing something here. Maybe Christian Pulisic is actually terrible, or maybe people are just completely bat shit crazy.

Granted, I know there are more aspects to the game. He has to score goals. And also it's important to note how many dribbles are attempted, not just completed.

But still.

Can't we just make Pulisic king of the US already? I know we don't have a king, but can we change that, too? I think it's time we had a bit of monarchy, and I think the 19-year-old marksman would be just the guy.

But that's all for now. Time to lay low until the Europa League on Thursday. Time to ruminate. Marinate. Salivate. Percolate.

It's good to be back writing for SOOH. Still the best (and only) blog devoted entirely to CP.

Match Preview: Dortmund vs FC Nurnberg

Hello Pulisic Fans,

And welcome to the Straight Outta Hershey Preview for today's blockbuster match between Borussia Dortmund and newly-promoted FC Nurnberg. A few fun facts about Nurnberg: It's the second largest city in Bavaria after Munich; its golden age came in the 1400s; it held special significance during the German Nazi Era. So obviously the first thing isn't great, since Bayern Munich is the scourge of the Bundesliga with players like Robben and Ribery; and the third thing isn't great either, for obvious reasons. 
But let's talk about soccer. Let's talk about football. Let's talk about cricket. Let's talk about Brazilian Ju-Jitsu. And, maybe, let's talk about Christian Pulisic?  🤔 So könnten sie spielen. — Borussia Dortmund (@BVB) September 25, 2018 Here's how  BVB's twitter account thinks BVB could line up today against Nurnberg. I find this interesting. No Mo Dahoud? Lucien Favre LOVES Mo Dahoud…

Pulisic needs to score, I need to get a job

Hi, friends. I'm tired. I flew back from Germany the other day and am still adjusting. I saw Pulisic in person at the Dortmund Mainz game, in Mainz. It was incredible. He was about 40 feet away from me. And then Dortmund won.

And tomorrow, of course, Dortmund play Hoffenheim at home. I wrote a preview for this game on Fear the Wall and I'm a little ashamed of it. Feel like I was trying too hard. But that's natural when you just start writing for a publication. You want to impress. And in my case, you want people to laugh. The key is to not try TOO hard.

I will also be tweeting the game for Fear the Wall tomorrow if any of you would like to follow along.

But wow, Christian Pulisic. US male soccer player of the year! Not that there was anyone else remotely in the runnings. I would be curious to know who the o…

Hopefully Pulisic: A Review of Dortmund vs. Nurnberg

Hey Pulisic fans,

Did Pulisic play soccer yesterday? I don't quite remember. I got up in the morning, went for a long jog, got the kids off to school, and then I just spent the whole rest of the day playing hearts and solitaire on the computer. At around 11:30am ODT time my leg started twitching, and I started breathing heavily, and I think I might've even started speaking in German, or maybe even Danish, but I wrote it off as some of the effects of the two months of sobriety I'm experiencing.

Actually, at approximately that time (more like 11:39am PDT), this was happening:
Jacob Bruun Larsen scores his first goal for Dortmund, but what about that set-up from Christian Pulisic? 👀

What an assist from the American! — FOX Soccer (@FOXSoccer) September 26, 2018 And of course I was watching it. In fact, I even got a trial subscription to YouTube TV just so I could get Fox Sports 2 and watch the showdown yesterday between Borussia Dortmund and FC Nu…
