I will tell you the two teams laughing all the way to the bank off just 3 players

Dortmund and Lille

over a quarter of billion pounds

for Pepe, Puli, and Dembele

all three who have been busts so far

I think that Dembele can easily become world class though. He has all the talent in the world. He only needs discipline and play for a team that does not have Messi in it. He as a right winger is always dangerous, even when he does not score goals , he will be dangerous with his dribblings. Right now, he is very wasteful when he shoots on target and he may lack in confidence, he may lack in quality training but he will get it eventually right. Puli does not have that kind of talent like Dembele has.

What a lovely little ball for the 4th that was.

Read an article today that shows at present his productivity with and without the ball is overall pretty poor compared to the other players in his position. He averages fewer tackles per 90 mins

I see he wears No. 22. Hopefully he will keep it at the Bridge.  You know what I mean.

again, my opinion, but it is madness to not even dress him for the Lille game and to carry THREE strikers on the match day squad (when we only play one at a time in the formations Lamps seems to have settled upon)

 

I think that Lamps has the problem that he needs to make Giroud and Batsman happy. Both are big names and Pulisic is just a talent. Giroud is a starter for france and he is a world cup winner. Batsman had some successful loans here and there and seems like a confident guy. Pulisic was not a starter last season at Dortmund, he seems not that confident to me at least and he is not that established in world footbal either. It will get worse for Pulisic in the next couple of months because RLC is coming back and he is a monster.

people are probably going to lose their minds over this, but maybe we should loan Pulisic out to another EPL club (one where he is starting every or most games) for the 2nd half of the season

then take a season-end reconnoitre and perhaps loan him out again or maybe even sell him with a buy-back clause (would much prefer a loan)

Crystal Palace would be perfect

London, not a threat, and they have SHIT for wingers other than Zaha, plus Roy is a good teacher and a grandfatherly type who can help Puli with his confidence

Actually, it is a decent plan. Wouldn´t mind if Chelsea actually pushed for a loan for Pulisic.

There’s really no reason why Pulisic isn’t playing or didn’t even make the bench in midweek, he is a very good player when healthy and can really help us. He has over 100 matches for Dortmund, 30 in the Champions league. He’s torn Marcelo a new one in two matches. Tore Athletico apart last year, always was Dortmund’s best player vs Bayern. He was one of our better players in preseason. Its also a myth that Sancho took his spot at Dortmund last year, he played very well at the beginning of the season got hurt, was reintegrated back in the team, worked his way back from injury. Then him and Sancho were the starters, Pulisic was actually outshowing him the last few games of the season. The only thing I can think of is he is slight and has an injury history, maybe they are building up his body to handle the premier league. Something is not adding up. This would be a Salah type mistake loaning him out.

Dembele maybe one of the most overrated players out there. For every game he has w a goal or a mazy run there’s two or three more where he looks like he forgot how to play football. Talented player, lost mentally.

The ESPN agenda on this is ridiculous. They ran another video discussion on this TODAY...making it like 3-4 videos this past week!

 

Is it really more of an agenda other than every other press on earth?

 

An American media outlet thinks that the best american player, who isnt good enough currently to play at the club hes at, should go to a place where he will get more consistent gametime. That is fair:)

As they stated, they can't remember someone being talk about so much that isn't starting. This isn't Messi we're talking about, but someone that was fazed out at a lesser club.

In addition, they should be encouraging him to put his head down & fight rather than jumping ship ASAP (USA aren't in the Euros).

Oh come on, show some balls, lend him to a team that IS a threat and has shit wingers: I'm lookin' at you Man U.  Of course, I'm not sure even Lampard is cruel enough to sentence the poor boy to a term in that shit-show.

In truth, as a Dortumnd fan: If your not going to use him, can we have him back. Dormund's attack  has been much less dynamic this year. when compared to the last few games of the season last year when Pulisic was healthy and the team was running both Sancho and Pulisic at the same time.

By agenda, I mean how many times are they going to keep on talking about Pulisic in a week? Last Thursday, they had a debate about whether he should seek a move in January. Then on Monday, they had Steve Nicol saying there's no need to panic just yet. And of course yesterday, they wondered if he should go on loan. Like okay, he didn't even make the bench at Lille but it's not like his situation has drastically changed to discuss him like 3 times in a week, is it? It's not like Lampard has directly said he's not in his plans or something. Furthermore, it's only early October. If his situation is still the same come December, then sure, by all means discuss a potential loan move or whatever. But if he's starting/playing games by then, all this 'press the panic button' talk will look foolish.

He's captain America though. You'll hear stories about him constantly in ESPN because hes the face of the game here nationally.  It would be like if Sterling or Kane were abroad not starting every game. It gets them clicks.

If they're going to talk about him, at least put up quality content aka talk about what can he do to improve, to get into the team etc. All their discussions have been like practically asking him to jump ship. That's a really pathetic mindset to have.

Shaka Hislop seems allright, he should look at jumping ship, I would say to a quality broadcast but less shit would be more appropriate.

Meh. ESPN's regular pundits are horrible. Only their guest pundits - e.g. Gab Marcotti, Sid Lowe - are okay to listen to.

I can't say I watch the channel reguarly for obvious reasons so maybe I'm wrong but he's always seems quite decent for me (especially by the standards set by his colleagues) and I remember an interview he did with Cech around the time we won the CL which I thought was very good although probably helped both being keepers.

He only seemed decent because he doesn't scream or talk loudly like some of his colleagues do.
