  1. GK Erin McNulty is off to Norway for her first pro contract. http://www.sounderswomen.com/scripts/runisa.dll?M2.65936:gp::73694+L3/Display+E+NDX+NDX+746539
  2. Midfielder Amy Harrison heads to Scotland and joins the Rangers: http://www.rangers.co.uk/news/ladies-and-girls/item/4616-ladies-add-canadian-midfielder
  3. I agree with you. It's also frustrating because when playing, Robinson's been a very effective player and has pretty decent chemistry with Wambach. Robinson came on as a late sub one game and scored a beautiful game winner/game tying goal (I can't remember which).
  4. There have definitely been ups and downs. Good showing from her last night. She scored on a PK and was named player of the game. It must be fascinating being on the backline infront of a GK like Hope Solo. It's interesting to note that Kyle basically took Zurrer's starting job..in a position that's not natural to her. Zurrer has seen little to no playing time this season. Some decisions will have to be made after the season is done in terms of allocation. Tancredi will return to fulltime soccer, while Filigno will likely be looking for a post-college pro job and it sounds like Quon will be FIFA-approved to play as a Canadian this fall. She'll likely get an allocated spot because she's been a rock on Chicago's back line.
  5. Now that Heath is with Portland, I think Sinclair's scoring opportunities will increase. She seemed to be doing too much while Parlow Cone had her in the midfield. A number of Canadian players have really excelled in the NWSL. In particular LeBlanc has looked very good for Portland and her stop of Wambach's penalty kick two weeks ago was something else. Scott is turning a lot of heads too. There's a great article on her (http://espn.go.com/espnw/news-commentary/article/9499177/espnw-fc-kansas-city-midfielder-desiree-scott-scored-big-staying-canada) that discusses her progression as a player and why CIS ball was the right choice for her versus going south of the border for college. It's a good read if you have a moment. Matheson is one of the few bright spots of a rather very poor Washington team. Chapman wasn't selected as an allocated player by Herdman, but she's done an impressive job on the backline for that squad while she's been healthy. A couple of players have seen very little playing time: Moscato (especially now since she's been traded to Boston), Booth and McCarthy. Wilkinson is now playing midfield rather than fullback due to the depth on Boston.
  6. Thanks for all of your reports Rocket Robin. I love reading them!
  7. Sawicki hasn't been invited to a senior camp since 2011. She also hasn't attended any of the Excel camps either. Right now, she's playing for Highlanders FC: http://www.victoriahighlandersfc.com/teampage.php?squad=3 I'm not sure if she's on Herdman's radar.
  8. http://www.canadasoccer.com/canada-wnt-announces-roster-for-friendly-in-germany--p154160-preview-1 CANADA GK- Stephanie Labbé | SWE / KIF Örebro DFF GK- Erin McLeod | USA / Chicago Red Stars D- Kadeisha Buchanan | CAN / Toronto Lady Lynx D- Robyn Gayle | USA / Washington Spirit D- Rachel Melhado | USA / University of Louisville D- Carmelina Moscato | USA / Chicago Red Stars D- Desiree Scott | USA / FC Kansas City D- Lauren Sesselmann | USA / FC Kansas City D- Chelsea Stewart | USA / UCLA D- Rhian Wilkinson | USA / Boston Breakers D- Emily Zurrer | USA / Seattle Reign FC M- Kaylyn Kyle | USA / Seattle Reign FC M- Diana Matheson | USA / Washington Spirit M- Sophie Schmidt | USA / Sky Blue FC M- Danica Wu | CAN / Comètes de Laval F- Mélissa Busque | USA / Seattle University F- Adriana Leon | USA / Boston Breakers F- Christine Sinclair | USA / Portland Thorns FC Two new senior call ups: Busque and Melhado.
  9. As per the CSA Twitter: Midfielder Danica Wu (Ohio St. / USA) and defender Kylla Sjoman (Herford SV / GER) have been added to the #canWNT camp roster. There are a few tweets going out south of the border than Erin McLeod isn't healthy due to a hand injury. We'll see how that storyline progresses over the next week. I thought Herdman may have called up Stephanie Labbe for backup, but he hasn't done so yet.
  10. Here's the 18 player roster: GK- Karina LeBlanc | USA / Portland Thorns FC GK- Erin McLeod | USA / Chicago Red Stars D- Kadeisha Buchanan | USA / West Virginia University* D- Robyn Gayle | USA / Washington Spirit D- Carmelina Moscato | USA / Chicago Red Stars D- Rachel Quon | USA / Chicago Red Stars D- Lauren Sesselmann | USA / FC Kansas City D- Rhian Wilkinson | USA / Boston Breakers D- Emily Zurrer | USA / Seattle Reign FC M- Kaylyn Kyle | USA / Seattle Reign FC M- Ashley Lawrence | USA / West Virginia University* M- Diana Matheson | USA / Washington Spirit M- Sophie Schmidt | USA / Sky Blue FC M- Desiree Scott | USA / FC Kansas City F- Tiffany Cameron | USA / Seattle Reign FC F- Christina Julien | RUS / WFC Rossiyanka F- Christine Sinclair | USA / Portland Thorns FC F- Melissa Tancredi | unattached http://www.canadasoccer.com/canada-wnt-announces-squad-for-friendly-against-usa--p154028 Herdman said he may add another player as Jonelle Filigno had to pull out for personal reasons.
  11. The Canadian roster will be announced tomorrow, late morning on the west coast/early afternoon in the east.
  12. Good to know, squizz. Thanks! One thing I think the team is currently missing is the physicality Tancredi brings. She's tenacious, relentless and skilled. My hope is that Oduro can play a bit of that role with the team. As I recall, she got injured during the Cyprus Cup. I'm not sure of her status though because she didn't play in the friendlies versus France or England.
  13. Tancredi is a bit of a wild card. Will she be on the roster for this game? Herdman has half-jokingly alluded to it earlier this year. Someone had mentioned she was training with a men's squad in St. Louis? Some food for thought. My guesses on the starting 11: McLeod Wilkinson - Buchanan - Moscato - Sesselmann Matheson - Schmidt - Scott - Kyle Sinclair - Foligno (high striker)
  14. Melissa Busque has also joined the Seattle Sounders. Good article on her: http://www.sounderswomen.com/home/712837.html
