I liked when the announcer commented that the Chelsea players are trying to prove something and the other guy said (in effect), "Yeah, trying to prove Mourinho was the problem."

One is Dave Johnson (regular DC announcer) and the sideline is Lindsay something or other.

I like Johnson on the short morning bits he would do on WTOP. Never listen to the Wizards on the radio enough to get an idea.  Have probably heard some of him doing soccer before.

Aren't you watching the Steelers?

Waitin' for the start but I'll multi-task.     I'm not a Dave Johnson fan.

Bad optics  ...   almost too bright.    The other channels are good.    Must be a production issue.

It was a cheap shot. But he was viewed in many parts as the next Pele.

Contrast is pretty bad.    Guess I'll have to watch the Steelers.    :couch:

Reminds me of the old Dallas stadium (daylight).    Could never get a "pure" picture.

I'm just happy we have an internationally recognized talent again. Even if he's only Dempsey-esque, that's a success over Jozy/Lando/Jones/other crap coming around lately. Julian Green is the disappointment, a la Adu, and that's our fault for expecting more than he's ever shown to be. That was projections only, whereas Pulisic has performed.

Pulisic gets better every game and Dortmund are starting to rely on him more and more.  It's not just potential,  he's done more than any current usmnt player abroad.  Maybe any usmnt player ever.  He's a key player on maybe a top five team in the world.

Dortmund is going with younger players like they do from time to time. The gap between them and Bayern is huge. Thats why Julian Green cant get on the field. Bayern has one of their strongest sides since the Lothar Matthues days.
