Do you think Naho & Bev will come back to seattle?
Between the two I’d say Bev is a good shot. She’d get a lot of playing time with Reign with how the WC messes up the NWSL rosters and she has family in the Seattle area.
Naho has said she wants to come back, but her NT is in control of her placement and the WC is priority. Reign might be better off targeting an international who isn’t projected to make the WC anyhow. They need impact players to hold the fort down while the WC NT players are in camp.
The NWSL season maybe over but the if you’re a Reign fan the soccer just keeps on coming. With Reign players playing in four different leagues during the off season soccer starts up again this very week.
Agh. Painful. Seattle didn’t convert their early chances and didn’t shut down KC’s predictable offense. I thought we played a lot better after the subs, but we ran out of time. If only the subs were made ten minutes prior.
Starfire’s narrow dimensions seemed to effect our spacing and wing play. KC has the ability to run straight up the middle with or without traffic so it didn’t bother them as much. I’d love it if we never played in Starfire again. Besides it being cursed it also is just the wrong dimensions for how we play.
I really don’t know how Domka was awarded the final. Because she worked the u20s? She hasn’t ref’d a good game in two seasons of NWSL and Seattle has lost everything she’s ref’d for them I believe. Calling it loose in the first half to the point players were getting chippy and then tight on Seattle specifically in the second was very poorly done on her part. But being bad at handling a game is her MO. IMO refs shouldn’t be noticed enough that they acquire name rec. Usually they get name rec for bad reasons. AKA Joey Crawford.
Finally… I want to feel happy for KC but I don’t have any favorite player on their team. They are like Team Beige to me. So… I’m left not really feeling anything about the results. Then Arod’s tweet after the game was… meh. In poor taste. Who celebrates a win with a tweet like that? Arod I guess. Unfollow.
