i thought it was harvard stadium.
or is that one and the same?
Our matches are inside Harvard Stadium...
Soldiers Field is located behind the stadium, it was built by Harvard for their soccer programs...we played our playoff match there last year only because Harvard Football had taken over the stadium...
It's a great field (nice turf, no lines) but it holds less than magicJack's place! Basically all GA...
Anyway, any sign of Marta yet??
Maurine twitted that she will travel for USA on friday. I think probably Marta will go together.
Thanks. I read where Maurine would be in by the end of the week. Marta ready for the Sunday match in 2nd half?
Any sighting of Gemma Davison as well? My guess is she still hasn't received her visa
According to the roster report, Marta is not available for Sunday's match. According to a WNY press release, Marta arrives at the airport in Buffalo on Monday.
Now admittedly, I don't have a dog in this fight, my team went poof last season so I'm pretty neutral regarding teams and such, but I'm having a problem figuring this out with regards to her contract. She is under contract in WPS, goes down to play for a Brazilian club team for a few months without permission (which supposedly concluded some time ago), but then can't make it back in time to start the season for the team that now owns her rights. Is this a real contract she has with WPS (WNY), a pretend contract, or a sometimes when it suits me contract? No criticism implied, just asking...
I think the delayed was due to problems getting a work visa. The WNY owner mentioned this and Marta also mentioned this to some of the sports media in Brazil.
Hahaha...a Brasilian athletic star having problems getting a work VISA with money in his or her pocket. More like Marta and her agent didn't want to pay out an extra couple of reais to get the process going or she wanted an extended break at the expense of wny who pays out 3 times as much for her than santos in which i think it's the second. granted, she has played back-back-back-back seasons with about a 1 mth break between the wps and santos seasons. now, add the world cup. nice story to skip the 5 week pre-season, given he legs are in much need of a rest. maurine is probably the one having problems getting the VISA.
Ha! I'm inclined to agree with your assumption.
There is a rumor that Marta was delayed for personal reasons. Presumably Maurine is not confident speaking English and wanted to come with Marta. All will be together on Monday. Gemma has arrived and is making an impact.
Looking forward to watching in Harvard Stadium (next to Soldier field.)
the stories are all good but we all know marta saved 5 weeks of un-necessary pre-season wear on her.
as far as the boston game, i just don't see sinclair and morgan without marta getting thru the boston defense, not enough for a win. today people will see how much hot dog fc (i like that) need marta in the lineup.
for boston fans, faby popped up at santos, will be there for 2011. hope she returns to the wps in 2012.
I read a few weeks ago that Marta would undergo surgery to remove some nasal polyps and would be ready to play in 20 days. If that's the case, she probably wasn't able to take part in the preseason anyway.
Strictly speaking, the whole complex is Soldiers Field ( http://recreation.gocrimson.com/directions/index ), based on a donation of 31 acres of land by the founder of the Boston Symphony, who requested that the area be called Soldiers Field (he was a Civil War veteran) and used for athletics.

Marta is very professional. Why she should go early to USA if she couldn't play yet?
any know why averbuch was rostered today for the game vs boston? Her twitter says leaving tomorrow for camp but the game was today and others played in it. Just curious if she wasn't one of the 16 rostered? strange but WNY does have a good midfield so maybe she was left off...
She was listed as unavailable on the WPS roster site.
There's a word for what the Flash did to the Breakers...it's roughshod. The Flash went through that defense like olestra goes through the ailamentary canal.
sorry, i must have seen something different, saw a stingy boston back 4 keep that game within striking range up to the 65th min (2/3) of the game without any help from its' midfield, with a blunder by tony not playing kelly in the midfield for some ball control and STILL DIDNT PUT HER THERE AFTER HALF-TIME AS AN ADJUSTMENT and a goal keeper who forgot to show up. the constant pressing broke them down on the gamma goal (2). that's where you could see their legs were gone. they defended every run by morgan. sinclair in the box with a ball at her feet and not even loaded magicjack with Hope in net would have stopped it from being 1-0. i dont think bostons wins anything this yr but there defense (back 4) is for REAL.
if tony had put kelly in attacking MF after the half, they score on Harris. Boston up 1-0 and we might be saying WNY isn't that great with out marta.
Queen Marta has arrived in Buffalo!
Ok, maybe I went a little too "Chamber of Commerce" in my fandom, but take a look at the number of shots. 16 to 8. Also keep in mind that Alex Morgan missed a gaping open net when she be beat the two backs and the keeper. Oh, and let's not forget Gemma Davison's cracker that just knuckled wide at the last second. There were also two goal line clearances that were terrifyingly close for the Boston fans.
Some guys have all the luck.
This team is freaking stacked.
They dominated Boston at their beloved home stadium in front of the Riptide crowd, and they did it without Marta and Maurine.
Now they add these two to the mix, plus Averbuch didn't even play in that match.
There is no way this team is not winning a WPS championship this year, if they stay healthy. This team is more LETHAL than the FC Gold Pride were last year.
