Hey everyone, sorry for being away from the comments for a bit. Will be a lot more active this week.

I'll be live tweeting from the STF Twitter on Friday for the game.

Working on features right now, should start coming out.

What are your score predictions for the game?

Looks like Leon is a short-term loan until June 30th. It's a blatant favor from KK to get her Canadian compatriot minutes before WC, but I'm actually ok with having her as depth at RW for a few months if it means her over Vasconcelos. It's a bit more sensible of KK. Happier it's a short-term loan ending before WC. Just hoping it's depth minutes she'll be getting (sub minutes + CC starts.) She's a better overall F than Beckie imo, but honestly that's on seeing her a limited amount of times. She's fast and strong and has the potential to score some good goals.

Also seems that KK is still planning for WC depth because that roster spot will free up end of June. Overall, ok with it as long as Sugita isn't displaced.

Was wondering if this might be a loan until the WC to give her some game time given she's under contract. Hopefully something else in the pipeline for the WC period.

Phoucerman, I’ll give you &100 if you ask LeBlanc in a presser why she signed someone that the team doesn’t need now but who won’t be around when the team does need her during the WC break.

Ordonez should strike fear in the Thorns- she’s really good at exactly the thing the Thorns backline and GK are poor at defending . Last time we saw her on PP she brought NCC back from 2-0 down almost all by herself.

A loan? This extremely doesn't make sense now

Sounding like it’s Adriana Leon! Please discuss, I don’t know much about her. 🍁

I wouldn't mind seeing Rodriguez and Moultre starting over Sinclair and Dunn based on the workload this past week. It is important to keep players fresh and sharp. Dunn has been amazing but if she played 150+ minutes over the weekend getting some time off would be good for her. Can't argue with the others. Smith also might need some time to recover from the international break.

As for a score, I'm pretty bad at this. Feeling a 2-0 win, but I do have some concerns about Houston scoring (based on the KC game flow).
