    1. Lyon 2:0 Hoffenheim
    2: Yellow-Red Card for Hoffenheim
    3. Exchange from Nelson
    4. 2:2 at the end.

    He wasn't involved directly in a goal, but really had a positive impact for Hoffenheim.
    His sub in was like a life of sign for them, they were completely out of the game after the red card.

    His teammates trusted him, my feeling was that they passed him more often than in the last games.

    Agreed - he had a lot of touches, more than in his previous matches and this was only 40 mins of action. Definitely gave them a bit more pep in their step. He's becoming a lot more comfortable playing first team football - there was an assurance to his touches on the ball in this match.

    I think it's necessary that he finishes his loan there. No early call backs like some have suggested here.

    That's certainly not going to happen. Is it? Plus with 5 goals in 6 apps for Hoff, who needs a Sancho when they've got a Reiss;)

    I agree, give him the playtime and build his confidence. Let him play preseason next year and ease into the squad of he's good enough

    Yeah I think he should stay. He's playing regularly and gaining confidence, and being managed very well too. Not starting every game but starting games where appropriate in the Bundesliga.
    say yes, Toby Andrl, Trilly and 3 others like this.

    Don't think he has to stay in Germany, especially if Ramsey and/or Welbeck leaves in January, he would get plenty of game time here. Nagelsmann is no doubt a fantastic coach to learn from but I'm sure Emery and his staff are just as good, if not better. Reiss hinted in his first interview after he left that returning early could be an option.

    He is clearly 'good enough'. If he doesn't assert himself as a starter next season I will be unpleasantly surprised.

    7 games is a bit little to judge him on

    Normally I'd be inclined to agree with you on that point, but it was apparent from his games in youth football that Reiss is a special footballer.

    The only argument I could think of against the notion was from his games under Wenger playing out of position.

    Not sure youth level is the best place to judge a player either. But you can only beat whats in front of you. I'm very happy he was loaned out instead of sitting on the bench here as he probably would not get that much playing time here. And since I think he wouldn't get that much playtime here I think he's not 'clearly good enough' as of right now to play in our squad. From what i've heard his overall play is lacking. Even though he has scored goals in germany. Not really comfortable with dribbling there yet etc.

    If those things doesn't develop I'm not sure he's making it here. Luckily he seems to get the playtime and looks to be developing by the game!

    Poacher. Scores less than a minute after coming on at 1-1

    How was the goal?
    Couldn't watch Hoffenheim.

    Tap-in. Keeper saved a shot and it went straight to Nelson.

    People who said Nelson wasn't that good when he was playing wing-back...:rofl:

    Could've just had two assists.

    samshere Why so serieuse?

    Is there a recall option in January, we need players especially now since Welbeck has gone down.

    Pretty tempting to bring him back but think it'd be best for his development to finish the season there.
