Formiga, Our NWSL Footy Awards, and Vlatko's 541
Manage episode 308395037 series 2860630
Courtney & André had a LOT to talk about so get comfy and ride with us. NWSL trade chaos has already started so we run through recent trades, including one that dropped mid-recording. We then talk Ballon d'Or, PRO's refusal to properly recognize, categorize or train NWSL referees (and what they're doing about it), plus spotlight some recent international fixtures. #DiacreOut
After the break we do a deep dive into the USWNT's two matches in Australia. We get into Lynn and Midge ballin out, Emily Fox and Sofia Huerta locking down left and right back, Alana Cook puttin people in her pocket, the problem with Lindsey Horan, and we beg Vlatko to chill with this 541 thing he's obsessed with.
Whew, think we'd be done right? NOPE! Then we roll into our inaugural Diaspora United 2021 NWSL Awards in which we crown our most stylish player, most disrespectful player, comeback player, goal of the year, rookie, defender and attacker of the year, and of course the real MVP.
After all that we move to Heated & Hyped where we're both still fuming about Brazil's weak ass farewell to Formiga, who deserved so much more and much much better.
We tried to told y'all, ISSA LOT – please share, subscribe, rate and review!
