Chelsea landed in Japan this morning, bringing 24 players from London. As expected, those 24 have now become 25. Christian Pulisic has landed as well, presumably coming from America, and has now even completed his first Chelsea training session.
It’s one small step for man, one giant leap for soccer-kind. Incidentally, Apollo 11 launched on July 16, 1969, putting a man on the Moon for the first time in human history eight days, three hours, eighteen minutes, and thirty-five seconds later.
(No, we don’t know what his shirt number is yet...)
Pulisic’s signing is obviously not as momentous in terms of human history and achievement, but it could prove an era-defining signing just like Eden Hazard in 2012. That would be great. Or he could prove a massive flop. That would be less great. We should be charging for this sort of cutting edge analysis.
In any case, The Pulisic has landed and the hype
train rocket has pulled into the station. ALL ABOARD!
