Yes. John Malković, Stipe Miočić(this one is so Croatian with the name Stipe which is also familiar to the mentioned regions where the name Mate is given), Mark Begić(US senator from Alaska), Dennis Kučinić(former Cleveland mayor and a congressman from Ohio), Rudy Tomjanović(NBA coach), etc.

Yes, just as Perišić. That "Č" and "Ć" is what bothers you(even some native speakers here have big problems through their whole life with Č and Ć :) ). You don't have that in your alphabet just as we don't have X, Y and W in ours, but we know how to pronounce it in English and in other languages(after we learn it). You just leave "C", but "C" is a letter/phone for itself in our language. Your "Ć" is actually "CH", just like in Spanish(Argentinian Croat Darío Cvitanich/Cvitanić). Slovenians have their family names all pronounced with "Č" at the end. :)

If they gave him a middle name Mate, it means that they know how to pronounce it. But in our language it's not always about correct pronunciation but also how it sounds in our ears. :)
At least he's got some great genes for football and that's something you inherit from your parents in those 49%. :mrgreen:



Now regarding his football qualities, he is a very interesting player and he can become a great star one day. He chose an excellent place to develop his career into something great. Borussia have been taking a great talents across the Europe and in the next 2-3 years they may repeat the same thing from 2011/2012 if they manage to keep their current players in one place.

Don't love buying from BvB as it feeds a silly narrative that's annoying, but Pulisic is top class. He's not just good "for a young player" or good "for an American". He's legitimately a good player who could be truly great. However he needs more time to develop before coming here I think

Him and Dembele are also very inconsistent. They are still about two seasons away from being ready to play week in week out for a top club. Even at Dortmund they are not sure starters if Reus is healthy.

Dembele is a future Ballon D'Or contender. Absolutely fantastic prospect. Amazing dribbling, can shoot, can cross, is fast, perfectly two-footed. He ticks absolutely all the talent boxes. He only needs to mature and that's it. We should go for him no expenses spared.

Not nearly as good as Dembele but I don't mind him. Best American player of all time.

I don't think that he speaks Croatian that well... so I wouldn't be sure about that. Maybe he got the talent from Croatia(his parents)...

I actually think the differences between the two are not as large as most think. Dembele seems to be a better prospect because he can pull off highlight plays more often, but he also makes a lot more mistakes attempting them. He also has a very inconsistent first touch which sometimes makes the ball bounce off him. Pulisic is more conservative and has been slowly expanding his game to show more skills but being able to pull them off more consistently.

Now it's true that Dembele can improve on all of this but it's also not a guarantee. Especially the mental part of the game is not always a given. There are plenty of highly talented technical players who never flourish because they make wrong decisions on the pitch. Those decision-making instincts do not always come naturally. A good example is Emre Mor, who also seems to be able to dribble past any player yet always runs into defenders because he seems to be unable to decide when to pass and when to shoot. Dembele has a lot to improve in that regard whereas Pulisic makes good, if rather unspectacular decisions, more often.

True. What I meant to say is Dembele has a higher ceiling. If he improves his decision making, he can be up there in BdO contention. Pulisic is fantastic, don't get me wrong, but I don't think his sailing is THAT high.
