    Depends on if he's going to get starting time or not. That's what he needs at this point of his career. Not a place to sit on the bench like what happened with Yedlin before he was loaned to Sunderland last year

    Johnson came on as a sub for M'gladbach and played well inn their2-1 win over Leverkusen.
    Wood scored in his Hamburg debut in their 1-1 draw.

    He should stay put. Dortmund knows that will get 2-3 times more next year or even this winter. Plus, they are in three competitions and it's a chance to play Champions League.

    He's a regular in the 18 for one of the top six clubs in the world as a 17 year old. He's a shiny object and basically is what Martin Odegard wishes he could be. This is just a start with the offers.

    With all the Sunderland talk, just a plug for Lyndon Gooch starting the first 3 games. Knew his name but made the first team out of no where.

    Wait -- did you actually just tell us that Marseilles wasn't part of the English league?

    Amazing that Everton was bought for less than 300 Million.

    Pulisic is on the U.S. U-19 team roster coming to play in Serbia this week, along with Danny Barbir, Matt Olosunde, Josh Perez, and Haji Wright. They all play in Europe and I may head up to Subotica to see them on Thursday. Any of these guys special besides Pulisic?

    Haji Wright was with the Cosmos (Mainly to escape the clutches of MLS) last season but signed with European club.

    Where did you see the full roster?

    From the roster posted below, that's the wrong Pulisic. It's a brother or cousin that was going to Duke and then Dortmund brought him in. He's a keeper, not a field player. Christian Pulisic is in camp with the senior team and presumably getting on a plane for the Caribbean Thursday.

    Good catch ... but seeing as Klinsmann was more worried about cap tying Pulisic vs helping the U23's qualify for the olympics, I'll wait until I see him board the plane ... :cool:

    He was also the keeper in the U-17 WC. That's a decent list of clubs in there. I'd love to know why the Cosmos Academy is so appealing.

    I am not a Klinsman fan at all, but accusing him of not letting Pulisic play for the under 23s as only wanting to cap tie him, as opposed to the first priority being to qualify for the World Cup is more than a little bit conspiratorial, don't you think?

    I find it funny that people actually care about Olympic Soccer, at least on the men's side.

    BL - Pulisic himself admitted they had discussions about the U23's ... but Klinsmann decided it was time to integrate him into the senior squad. Based on the playing time Pulisic received in the Copa America ... it's pretty obvious what Klinsmann was doing. But you can debate Klinsmann's fear ... especially since Pulisic needed a Croatian passport to join BVB and the Croatian technical director started to lobby for him.

    Zoo - I care about the development of US soccer players ... I'm not a fan of that specific tournament. If the Olympic tournament presents an opportunity to fulfill that goal, use it.

    There was like zero chance that Pulisic would have chosen Croatia. This isn't a Neven Subotic or even a Guiseppe Rossi situation. And I would have no problem if he never played another minute for one of the junior national teams. He'll be the best player at his position on the MNT depth chart before long.

    There was no reason to bring Pulisic on as a sub for most of the Copa matches. In most of those matches we were leading and we just needed to finish the match. I think he only really appeared in the matches we lost when we needed goals late.

    Miazga loaned out to Chelsea's usual dumping ground, Vitesse. Chelsea now has 38 players out on loan. Nice move Matt.

    No word on Gedion Zelalem. I think he is in Julian Green situation and he needs his body to develop before he breaks through.

    Emerson Hyndman is in Bournemouth. But they just signed Jack Wilshere on loan. I have no idea which part of the midfield that they want Hyndman in, but that can't be good for him. For now, he just needs to get healthy.

    Chelsea would sign every player in the world if they could...

    There was talk that Zelalem was going to be loaned by Arsenal to Bolton, not sure if that happened.

    Wilshere is not going back to Arsenal, just no room for him. Best guess is that will be a permanent move or if Bournemouth is relegated after the season, he will latch on to another team.

    Don't think Zelalem went anywhere.

    I think Wilshere will depend on what he does at Bournemouth and what Cazorla does at Arsenal.

    Pulisic was named to Dortmund's Champions League Roster.

    Christian Pulisic 'trusted' at Dortmund, but must wait for his chance - Tuchel

    Tuchel is keeping Pulisic pretty well grounded.
