    This is why I don't play chess much anymore - I can't look a few moves ahead and see these things. Brilliant observation. Wonder if all the GMs (that's General Managers, not Grandmasters) thought this through...

    I hope the Freedom did. We're in a unique position because we have players like Lori Lindsey and Rebecca Moros who have been with the team for years and who have settled in the area. And these W-League veterans are exactly the sort of players who are going to be right on the bubble behind the national teamers and the internationals. I think they would choose to stay with the Freedom if they had the choice, but if someone wasn't prescient, they may not have the choice.

    totally! her younger bro, amaechi is doing good for a young player and her older bro, kelechi, isnt playing anymore, but could still make the MLS if he wanted to! and not to mention her father - tony - even at his age he is still on the soccer field showing the young people how to play futbol.

    I understand that and I actually like her and the other 2 Santa Clara kids in Dalmy and Klein. However, she didn't exactly lite it up when she went in. In fact there are times when she played poorly. I do think however that she has room for improvement and may be a much better player next year.

    I just remember watching games at TP and me and a few other fans were completely and utterly disgusted by Igwe's poor play. I don't really care so much about her family as I do with her holding on to the ball too long in the offensive third. She is definitely not a player I would go out of my way to sign and protect, not with the amount of talent we already have in the midfield.

    I also did not think Igwe was top 10 on the depth chart for Chicago. She is not fast and at times did not look fit enough for pro ball. I was surprised at that last part given her professional soccer playing relatives.
