After 15 weeks of regular season play, only North Carolina (8) have won at least half of their matches.

Over the past 6 regular season matches, only North Carolina and Louisville actually have more wins than losses.

Somehow we go into the international break tied for 2nd and only -1 on the table.

Week 15... the week of the NWSL Power Outage Rankings

Only Houston looks worse than us right now.

Sigh, going to be a long, hot summer, and all of the PDX teams are a hot mess, and they all need new owners. Time to get more reading and writing done, methinks...

...https://twitter.com/RyanTClarke/status/1678187959525277696 what did you anticipate my guy? That players who didn't score in two consecutive games were going to turn it on? That players who you've not used all season (because they are Not Good) were going to become good?

This is admittedly the hill I'll die on, but I really don't think this iteration of Moultrie is an 8- She neither works hard enough defensively or has the pace to shuttle, and certainly not the way Crystal Dunn can. I'd like to see a 4-2-3-1 with Liv at the 10 in the SD game

NC can go 4 points clear with a result tonight.

In this iteration there's no focal talent on this team. Weaver's a supporting player, Moultrie is not ready for prime time, maybe they could start Betfort over D'Aquila who's been awful, Kuikka, Hubly, Kling and Menges, in other word our veteran leadership, are all in bad form, Coffey remains solid of course, and everybody else out there is a try hard but not really up to snuff. I just don't know about Bixby. Predictable results.

Simply unacceptable that Gotham could bring on an ex Spanish international and three ten year NWSL veterans to see out the game and we brought on a 2022 4th round pick who has literally not played all season, Taylor Porter, and Hannah Betfort.

New FO, new coaches, new defenders, new attacking depth please...not a long list.

Garbage.

Expand full comment

it's actually funny how bad the last two passages of play were

Expand full comment

Gotham has done very well to take the sting out of this. Helped by some fairly blatant timewasting but

Expand full comment

Moultrie's been borderline unwatchable this half

Expand full comment

I'm starting to be over Hubley. She's a turnover machine.

Expand full comment

Kuikka missing passes, Hubly clearing every ball out over touch (regardless of actual need), Bixby passing to the opponent...this is just SO damn hard to watch.

Kuikka...come on

TAYLOR PORTER WORLD CLASS MIDFIELDER HERE TO SAVE US!

Water break? Are the officials trying to run out the weather clock now?

Expand full comment

sure, why not

Expand full comment

lol it's amazing how much better Betfort looks at #9 than D'Aquila

GD Bella open up your body and show some damn composure there

Gotham's players do go down rather easily

Nice dive Allie.

They just said Portland's xG was .2 lol

Thought that could've been a pen :/

Surprised to see Weaver sky that one over the bar...said no one, ever.

Expand full comment

The plan should be to isolate Weaver on Freeman whenever possible. Hunt her like a NBA mismatch.

Expand full comment

omg i thought Kling had done it

Expand full comment

if the difference in the game is because Bixby fell asleep with her positioning i'm going to be really annoyed

Expand full comment

Unbelievable touch from Betfort.

Morgan WHY are you not shooting there

Alright time to bench Bella again

Expand full comment

what on earth is Bella's positioning there

Expand full comment

Chipping the keeper. What a concept.

WELP

3 L's in a row. What say you, KK?

Expand full comment

I'd stick Natu on the right wing and take Izzy off. Play Betfort centrally.

Hate myself for typing that
