    Full Quote:

    >”I would say that the expectations some Americans put on me is too much,” he said. “But I don’t take it that way. I know no one means harm to me or wants to put too much pressure on me. It’s kind of what they’ve done or do in the past. A lot of countries do.”

    On USSF Reforms:

    >”It’s not about completely restarting. It’s not like we have everything wrong or we panic,” he said. “It’s about developing what we already have into even better. I think if we continue to do that then of course players will come up and there will be new talents. I think if we do that and build on what we already have, we can really create something.”

    On Youth Systems:

    >”I would say the youth systems in Germany have impressed me the most and how they grow their youth players into full professionals,” he said, adding that the U.S. “pay for play” system that relies on considerable financial contributions from parents “could be one of our problems” that stop the country from reaching its potential.

    >”I’ve been right there, I see it every day; I literally went through the [German] system. I think what I learned and how I learned from going through when you’re 17 until you’re 19 and fighting everyday with other players — you’re fighting for a pro contract, really — is something we definitely can learn from. It’s a system that I’d never really experienced in the U.S. I would have never got something like this, and I think this is the biggest reason why I’ve grown so much as a player.”

    The Argentinian Pulisic wouldn’t have said that.

    We definitely have too big of expectations of someone who is the same age as a freshman in college.

    Fortunately most Americans won’t remember soccer exists again until 2022 (hopefully) so he is clear for a while

    I think they expected USA to at least make the World Cup. Is that too much?

    What are you talking about? It’s no pressure, just the ENTIRE FUTURE OF AMERICAN SOCCER riding on you.

    We clearly have no expectations. None. Whatsoever.

    He just had to choose to play for Croatia. So the pressure would be way less

    The way he’s talked about on this sub, as well as US sports networks/social medias, is outrageous. He’s nothing more than a well above average player at the moment. ‘Wonder kids’ come about all the time and most fizzle out by their early twenties. People comparing him to Messi already is damaging as fuck.

    Name one player from a country in similar size to the United States that relies solely on a 19 year old.

    There are other players to follow for the USMNT too, but they are 18 or 19 also. One of which, we just lost to Mexico (Gonzalez).

    People need to be patient not only with Pulisic, but with USMNT in general. The USSF and coaching is fucked up pretty badly, but needs to be proactively fixed to help a promising generation succeed.

    He is the biggest talent the US has ever had in probably its worst era of talent in 20 years comparatively.

    In the past generation you had a core of Donovan, Beasley, Howard, Friedel and Dempsey.

    For right now, its just Pulisic, old MLS players, and players that aren’t ready to make the jump yet.

    Fuck Lalas for calling him “golden boy” and accusing him of not pulling his weight.

    A 19 year old.

    Lol, good he’s not Mexican. We destroy our heroes from the inside. Telling them their shit and just waiting to pounce on them at their first mistake.

    Welcome to El Tri, Jona.

    It’s difficult to tell when people are ironically calling him the second coming of Messi or are legitimately being serious

    I can appreciate that the Captain of our future 4 WC title teams would feel that way, but I just don’t see it. I’m sure he will feel differently after his 7th Ballon D’or

    it’s cause americans are desperate to have a world beater, madness that they haven’t really had one considering the size of their country

    At least no one will care about him until 2022, the next time USA can make a World Cup, so he can develop without too much national pressure.
