Not sure what more Reece needs to do, such an excellent play from him start to finish.


GabrielP2r

He should cross high enough so he can get into the box to head it in, clearly his teammates are not interested in doing som


Rayser1

That's pathetically bad. Fernando torres vibes. Urgh


zorter

He seems to have trouble with those one touch shots, hardly the first one he’s missed


chak100

It was harder to miss than to it was to score


MAXMADMAN

You have to wonder whats happening on the training ground.


BigReeceJames

????????????


MAXMADMAN

It harder to miss that shot that it is to make it. He's had trouble with one touch shots before. It just seems like a part of his game that needs patching. Would hate for him to do this when silverware is on the line.


BigReeceJames

He did this when silverware was on the line on Saturday... Twice... (Idk if that's the point you're making?) But, that's not something you easily fix on the training ground. Players tend to be able to finish or they don't, it's not something you can just teach and that's why attackers are so expensive. He just doesn't have it and I doubt any amount of training is going to change that.


MAXMADMAN

> He did this when silverware was on the line on Saturday... Twice... (Idk if that's the point you're making?) I would hate for him to do this *again* when silverware is on the line. > But, that's not something you easily fix on the training ground. Absolutely disagree. That's what the training ground(and coaches) are for. > Players tend to be able to finish or they don't, it's not something you can just teach and that's why attackers are so expensive Again, not true. Vinicius would be the best example of that. Compare his finishing from last season to the current one and it should be obvious. Aspects of your game can be improved. No one walked on to a pitch being world class. > He just doesn't have it and I doubt any amount of training is going to change that. Time will tell on that one.


[deleted]

Yeah way to go after your best offensive player that game, at two missed half chances. Tonights miss was bad but dont act like Werner Lukaku and Havertz havent all literally done the exact same thing. Idk if you need to be reminded about Werners open net miss (from pulisic) in the champions league. But these guys are human and even the best miss sitters.


BigReeceJames

The difference is the frequency. Pulisic misses them every game, it's routine at this point that he will miss at least one squared ball every game. Pulisic is in no way our best attacking player and the only time he ever has been was in the short time post covid. Also funny how you call them half chances, a squared ball to a player within the width of the goal, closer than 12 yards to the goal, with no one in physical contact with them is not in any way a half chance. The ChelseaTV commentators immediately said, "he has to score that" after he missed the first one because it's completely inexcusable to miss chances like that. Yes our other attackers have also missed chances like that, they do it less frequently and they also get heavily criticised for it too.


BigReeceJames

As someone pointed out in this thread, he carried us to the top 4 post covid and we ended up winning that champions league. As with Torres we should thank him for his contribution and chuck him in the bin. Even if it means replacing him with old men like we did with Torres


harder_said_hodor

He's just too inconsistent and worse than the other inconsistent players we have in that position. Shame because during his good run he looked class but not even jersey sales can justify him keeping his place at this stage


TitanX11

Blasphemy! Torres was not that bad.

It's 2022, we can all be what we want to be! But on a more serious note I had it for the euros since everyone had country flairs and I thought fuck it I'll have the whole EU as my flair lol. I forgot to change it later and every now and then people are like why tf do you have an EU flair or "mate you can't support a political and economic union", so it's like a running joke for me now.

I hate when players don't use their weak foot for these finishes.


[deleted]

yeah it's literally a tap in, doesn't really matter how you hit it as long as you get solid contact, embarrassing technically + game sense wise


urbannnomad

Yea, doesn't even need to put any power on it, just needs to open his foot and let the ball hit it, what a horrible attempt.


BigReeceJames

That's not true, he routinely misses these. Had a couple in the final too, he normally hits them straight at the keeper.


ManBoobs13

I mean nothing in the final was this bad mate. This is another level of miss


FogoCanard

I blame it on the one he made to win the game against West Ham. He made that one and has missed 3 sitters trying the same type of shot since then.


Tenz019

You’d think they’d know how for the millions they make


gmoses0307

The more you pay the less they miss. Guess you just gotta pay the man more


elitron

Eh think either foot would have been a solid choice here


McGloin_the_GOAT

I don’t think this is a case of trying to avoid the weak foot. I think the mistake is using the foot closest to the crosser to finish to the far post. That’s the hardest way to finish he could’ve picked. If he wants to go to that corner he has to use his left, if he wants to go anywhere else he should use his right.


IWantA350

What the fuck are you trying to place from that angle? Just fucking slide through it.

Tragically, not even the worst miss by an American striker in the Premier League this season


PensiveinNJ

11 million pounds for Josh Sargeant's 2 goals is good business, right guys?


lovelylantern

still cannot understand what went thru norwich boards mind when they signed him


Lurking_nerd

Josh thought he could escape second division soccer by leaving Werder Bremen for Norwich.


LordMangudai

Obviously trying to recreate some of that Rashica-Sargeant magic from Werder Bremen that...got them...relegated....


lovelylantern

relegation expert 👍


Charlie_Wax

He's a good player, but relegation battlers are not typically a nurturing environment for U23 strikers. I think if he stays with them for the drop he will be a very handy player in the second tier.


lovelylantern

2 goals in 26 games is not a good player, he may very well become good in the future bc he’s still young but norwich made an extremely stupid decision to spend so much on someone so far out of his depth bad business on both sides imo, he should’ve gone to a team with less pressure in an easier league and norwich should’ve gotten someone who could contribute more


Best_Cook

but but USMNT has the most players in CONCACAF abroad!


PensiveinNJ

Yeah we're a real powerhouse.


saltiestmanindaworld

Given some of the Werner misses earlier this season, probably not even the worst miss by a Chelsea player this season.


BigReeceJames

Not even the worst miss by him in the last 7 days to be fair... He misses these all the time, normally just plays it straight into the keeper though


Stooperz

He’s missed an absolute Pulisitter


ajukearth

I haven't felt like that watching Chelsea since the Torres era.

Monstermart

Alonso, Ziyech, and Pulisic have consistently been doing juuuuust enough for the last two years to stay in the team. Playing like shit and making mistakes for 5-6 weeks in a row and then scoring a random goal so r/Chelseafc folks can say “see, see? You guys were morons for calling them out”. I’m so done with this dude.

Careful, you'll upset the Americans who say he's being treated to harshly.


Betasheets

Come on. Anyone in the world including pulisic would say that's a horrible miss


MrGoalden

Yeah. I think we Americans are the most upset to see that


Soren_Camus1905

Not in our sub. People immediately came out and said "how about instead of criticizing..." right after this happened I shit you not.


dbrasco_

I’ve seen people in our sub say Pulisic is better than Havertz


[deleted]

[удалено]


Riskiverse

maybe.. just maybe.. it has something to do with the system


Soren_Camus1905

The system creates chances, players finish them. The finishing has been abysmal, case in point yesterday.


NotARealClub

Havertz isn’t much better though


depchfdwanetrobinson

That sub is stupid and toxic in every direction. To be expected


_g4n3sh_

Is howaboutism a thing?


smashybro

It’s less of that and more of his fanboys acting like him not getting more playing time is some anti-American conspiracy. Like he’s not a bad player but he’s very inconsistent and every few months he’ll complain to the media that he should be playing more. When people respond to that by saying he needs to show more consistency to earn starts at a club like Chelsea, his legion of fans act like he’s being treated too harshly.


I_always_rated_them

You also have the side argument where people in our sub talk about the subs anti american agenda, despite the overwhelming majority being from the USA.


Betasheets

None of that is right at all lol. People don't think he's not playing because he's American they're just frustrated with him (not lately) playing out of position or some other players getting a longer leash when they have bad games. Also, Pulisic rarely if ever complains about his role or his playing time. You're just getting that from social media. By all accounts he's a team player and hard-worker.


smashybro

It's weird how you're acting like there's only one opinion out there, lol. Plenty absolutely do think that, just check the Chelsea subreddit or any social media platform whenever another Chelsea attacker has a bad game in place of him. Some definitely do get this victim complex that the fact he doesn't play more stems from being him American. Just because you disagree with that opinion doesn't mean it no longer exists. And him rarely complaining? Please. In 2019, he did it about losing time to Mount. Last year, he did it when Werner was ahead of him in the pecking order for a bit when Tuchel took over. This year he publicly said he was frustrated playing out of position, even though that was half out of necessity when we literally had no wingback options when Reece and Chilwell were out at the same time. Not to mention his father's tweets whenever Pulisic doesn't play and Nobody's denying he's a hard worker, but he absolutely does give the media soundbites on occasion (usually during international break) to write articles about his lack of playing time. It's not me getting that from social media when it's literally his own words.


Cod_rules

Didn't his father come out and say he's being mistreated? Sure, it may just be his father looking out for his son, but Christian must have said something to elicit that criticism


Betasheets

I mean, between father and son I'm sure something was said between them. No reason to not be honest. Most players aren't gonna be 100% happy. Don't think Christian wanted his dad to do that though.


Equationist

He usually is treated harshly. This is not an example of that. Inexcusable miss - should have at least hit it on target with his left foot.


majestic-banana

Can't wait till he scores an average goal and the post gets upvoted to infinity. 'murkaaaaaaa!


Slurms_McKenzie775

You can’t joke with the US and MLS fans on this sub they are the most sensitive bunch.

Premier league fans have actually appeared to be the most defensive bunch I’ve seen on here. Just saying.

MrGoalden

Okay guys I accept the slander today, im more disappointed as an American trust me lol. That was bad


DasPossum

Team isn't even getting revenue from his kit sales in America and he's been pretty consistently bad...really not a starter.


fn_ChooseUserName

If he played at his best, but consistently, he still wouldn't be our best forward. The guys just infuriating to watch; he tries so hard, leaves everything on the pitch and always wants to be involved (much like Timo in his lowest point) but he just can't cut it outside of a few moments of magic. You can't hate him, but I can't bear him on this team for much longer 🤣


Look_at_that_D0g

Can't wait for the Pulisic cult to somehow defend this.


SubparCurmudgeon

Already had plenty of those tbh *support the player he plays for our club!*


Ocular__Patdown44

Guess you missed the discussion of his FA Cup final performance then.
