    Sheffield United are in as well. My attitude towards women teams in Sheffield is the exact opposite of my attitude towards the men’s so it’s great news.

    Will create some good local rivalry with both Sheffield FC and Doncaster Belles having teams in the same league.

    She’s finally healthy but they kept her out because they said she felt a little tight (I’m assuming they meant her ankle? Idk) but anyway I hope she’s good to go on Tuesday.

    Also Mal Pugh’s going to be out for 2 months with a strained PCL so no Tournament of Nations for her.

    Morgan Brian is returning to the NWSL with the Chicago Red Stars after barely seeing the field in Lyon.

    Christen Press is also likely returning to the league with the Utah Royals after spending the last couple months in Sweden with Göteburg. Her contract expires after the transfer window closes (which is tomorrow) but I believe the team is going to let her leave early.

    Unfortunately Sheffield FC have had to withdraw due to lack of finance.

    I was having a look at Scottish women's football and I came across this from a team called Central Girls FA

    That looks similar to the Sporting KC logo.

    Manchester United are announcing their squad on Friday. Can't wait. Apparently a few ex Liverpool players who came through the United centre of excellence are joining.

    Can see Man Utd pissing the league with players of Chamberlain and Greenwood’s quality.

    I’m glad to see Leah Galton’s back. She had played in the NWSL for a bit and had gotten some looks with the England NT, but a back issue set her back and she’s had a rough couple of years, she even stopped playing for a little bit. I hope things go well for her with Man Utd .

    Can't believe the US called up Jaelene Hinkle after she refused to play over having to wear the Pride month jersey. Way to keep being trash, Ellis.

    Yeah I don’t care how good of a player she is (which btw I don’t think she’s that great), I never want to see her in a US kit again. I was honestly surprised Ellis called her up. I’d really like to know what Rapinoe and Harris think about it; there are other gay players on the team but they’re the only ones who are actually open about it and outspoken. It’s probably not going to happen though because they’re not going to jeopardize their roster spots a year before the World Cup, and I don’t blame them to be honest.

    The best thing that could come out of this is that Hinkle makes the final roster and then get embarrassed on the field.

    Hinkle got cut from final roster thankfully.

    Regardless of that, I'm surprised this was already announced because they've literally only had like 2 days of practice since the camp started. Part of me had wondered if Ellis called up Hinkle just on the basis of protecting themselves from her ever taking legal action against them on the grounds of religious discrimination. I have no idea if this is true but it definitely lends support to that theory, and other people have offered this up as a possible explanation as well.

    I was just coming here to leave a laughing comment after reading the news. It's still ridiculous she was even invited, what a mess.

    THE GREAT HORAN

    Overall, I thought the US played well tonight but they had horrid defense on the counter that Australia was able to convert on.

    I’m so looking forward to next summer. We’re going to be the favorite to win again but Australia is my other pick to win if we can’t get it done in 2019.

    What a fucking hit by Rose Lavelle on this half volley goal
