Seattle Reign vs. Washington Spirit
NWSL Semifinal

Initially I took a very defensive stance, but then after seeing the quotes and thinking about it, I think that she’s entitled to be able to say those sort of things. I think we became friends when we were in Portland, and I think there is maybe a mental block that the Germans have against us, because they have not beaten us in many years.
So maybe that is her way of trying to help out her teammates and ease them into the next game against us. I’m not sure, but I think it was more of a media move than what she really feels. I felt like we got along really well in Portland, so I obviously respect her very much, and I’m looking forward to playing them just to see how much that mental block has gone away.

Yeah. she’s pretty much unchallenged when it comes to a leader on that team. Even tho Rampone has been Captain America forever, you can see it on the field that Abby leads them, gets them pumped up when needed, calms them down in other times, basically holding the team together. I know that it’s clear I think Cheney can walk on water (she probably can, bet $5), but she has a leader in her, I think. I mean i still haven’t forgotten how she got Abby to chill after Abby was seeing red v. Colombia in the 2012 Olympics.

do you think Abby is going to get a lot of minutes in the wwc? what do you think should be her role now?

I think/hope she’ll be experience to bring off the bench during a tight game, similar to Germany with Klose just a couple months ago. Even tho those happened under different circumstances: Germany basically only had Klose at the striker position/Löw went with the false 9 tactic, while USWNT has no shortage of forwards, but it does seem certain right now that Abby will be in the 2015 squad. 

It’s cliche and all, but sometimes those veteran players just know how to show up in clutch moments. Abby already did it v. Brazil in 2011 & in the final she did her part as well, & we saw Klose come on while they’re losing to Ghana & like a minute later score against them. So if she is gonna be part of the 2015 team, of course I’m gonna hope she does good and finally wins the damn thing.

So after reading rightside11’s good points about the current state of the USWNT, I decided to jump in because you all know I can’t shut up when it comes to discussions like this. I’m only a little bit sorry. I’m more sorry for mobile users
