Christian Pulisic

Pulisic gets 0 minutes in Chelsea's 4-0 aggregate defeat to Real Madrid

For the 11th time in 13 seasons (mercy me), Real Madrid are through to the Champions League semifinals after Rodrygo's second-half brace at Stamford Bridge put the finishing touches on a commanding 4-0 aggregate victory over Chelsea.

Chelsea want to get rid of eight players this summer, Pulisic among those on the chopping block

Chelsea spent some serious cash in the latest transfer windows and it seems they will continue this summer. But in order to comply with financial fair-play rules, the team needs to cut a few players from their current squad. 

Reports from England say the club already has a list of eight men ready to be offered in some sort of "summer fire sale."

Is Chelsea selling Christian Pulisic?

Officially, the club hasn't mentioned the players' names, but insiders have some guesses as to who is on the chopping block. And USMNT star Christian Pulisic is among them. 

Here’s everything Christian Pulisic did at the Bernabéu in the Champions League on Wednesday

He didn’t play, but that doesn't mean that we don't have a recap.

Christian Pulisic vs. Real Madrid 

Christian Pulisic's first action was to ignore the artwork on the wall inside the Bernabéu. 

That’s the mindset of a champion right there. Why would he focus on the final in Istanbul when he has a big quarterfinal ahead of him? He takes things one step at a time like all winners do.

Next up was getting dressed and killing it in warmups.

A Frank Lampard managerial return to Chelsea could be great news for Christian Pulisic

In a shocking twist to Chelsea’s managerial merry-go-round, the London club is talking to former player and manager Frank Lampard for a potential reunion. Lampard would be a caretaker manager until the end of the season as the club figures out a long-term manager.

Lampard oversaw Chelsea from July 2019 through January 2021 when he was replaced by Thomas Tuchel. Lampard then spent a year managing Everton from January 2022 until January 2023. He was sacked after Everton sat 19th in the league.

Pulisic and Reyna will miss next games after an illness spread through the USMNT camp

With club soccer returning this weekend American fans might be asking questions like: Why is Pulisic not playing? Where’s Gio Reyna? 

Christian Pulisic will likely miss Chelsea’s Premier League game vs. Aston Villa on Saturday while Gio Reyna is set to sit out Borussia Dortmund’s massive Der Klassiker clash with Bayern Munich. Both American players are dealing with “severe colds.”

USMNT mobbing Matt Turner after revealing his baby will be a girl is all the wholesomeness you need

There were plenty of warranted critiques of the United States men’s national team after their less than impressive 1-0 victory vs. El Salvador on Monday. While certain areas of the game were lacking for the USMNT, they certainly had no shortage of comradery during the Matt Turner gender reveal celebration after the game.

Turner and his wife, Ashley Herron, are expecting their second child. They already have a son, Easton, who was born in June 2022. 

USMNT player ratings vs. El Salvador: All aboard the Pepi train!

The USMNT got the job done Monday night by beating El Salvador 1-0 at Exploria Stadium to advance to this summer's CONCACAF Nations League Finals in Las Vegas. 

The Americans needed only a draw to make it happen, and everyone at home probably would've agreed to that after a scoreless opening 45 that was painful to watch. USMNT wordsmith Anthony Hudson called it "a little bit too transitiony." The highlight was La Selecta fans starting an "olé!" chant after stringing together a couple passes, only for a guy to pass it straight to Daryl Dike. 

Christian Pulisic scores one and sets up four of USMNT’s seven goals vs. Grenada

Christian Pulisic was unstoppable on Friday night during the USMNT’s 7-1 Concacaf Nations League victory vs. Grenada as he scored one and helped set up four others.

The U.S. expectedly dominated Grenada (ranked 173rd in the world) at Kirani James Athletic Stadium in the Caribbean island’s capital. While the victory was routine and nothing to brag about, it’s good to see U.S. players playing with confidence.

Here’s the strongest USMNT starting XI for upcoming Concacaf Nations League games

Interim United States men’s national team head coach Anthony Hudson excited fans with an interesting roster selection for the March international window. A mix of usual starters and fringe players has fans eager to see how the team will lineup.

The USMNT have two Concacaf Nations League games to play with a trip to Grenada on March 24 and a home game in Orlando, Florida, vs. El Salvador on March 27.

Here’s a reminder of the 24 U.S. players selected for the pair of games.

‘He’s not good enough to be in Chelsea’s first team’ Ray Hudson blasts Christian Pulisic

Top soccer commentator Ray Hudson went on a fiery rant about Chelsea and USMNT forward Christian Pulisic on Tuesday. Hudson spent about 100 seconds spilling all his ill-feelings about the American star on SiriusXMFC.

Let’s take a listen and break down some of his points.
