    Fuck yeah, Portland beat NC in the first game of the knockout round. This tournament just got instantly more interesting. Britt Eckerstrom played out of her mind in goal today.

    Looks like there is a good chance they announce an LA NWSL team tomorrow. Julie Foudy and Alexis Ohanian also posted this.



    Edit: Grant Wahl confirms it

    Awesome. I likely won’t become a fan but I’ll support them in viewership and possibly a trip to a game or two.

    I am so fucking excited.

    My wife and I already decided that we’re getting season tickets to this new LA team as soon as they’re available.

    The name is not set in stone because they plan to officially debut branding, kits, etc. next year. But the team will join the league in 2022, which is probably the best decision.

    Any real reason they are called Racing or is it just another one of those "let's name ourselves after some European team we have absolutely no connection with"?

    The Kentucky Derby, the most famous horse race in the world, is in Louisville. So that's my guess.

    Alex Greenwood signing for Man City is an interesting one. Always though she was lucky to be picked for England ahead of a more defensively solid Stokes. Will be curious to see who gets the nod there. Great to see Bronze back at City.

    The quality of the league seems to be massively improving this season.

    She's class. Shame we couldn't entice her back. She's played for Everton, Liverpool, United and City now lol

    I feel so left out that Arsenal hasn't signed any American players since they seem to be pouring into the WSL.

    I know that the Arsenal Women started off the season by thrashing Reading, but based on the WCL performance against PSG a few weeks ago I think the team could use someone like Dunn, Williams, or Pugh to deliver that extra firepower from wide areas.

    They didn't sign any Americans because they signed all of the Aussies lol. Caitlin Foord, Steph Catley, and Lydia Williams are joined in the last few months

    This is a good point. They're all in on Australia this season.

    Aussie goal machine Kerr ended up at Chelsea too. Chelsea have insane options up top with Kerr, Harder, England, Kirby and Cuthbert to choose from.

    Lol sorry for your loss. From what I’ve seen she originally had no plans to go abroad but there are two other Orlando Pride players that signed with Spurs for the rest of this year and convinced her to go.

    Another great result for United. 2 down at half time coming back to grab the draw.
