Discussion in 'Western New York Flash' started by Eleanor, Dec 1, 2010.
Possibly because of the signing of Lewandowski?
she's going to a coach who believes in her. she was one of tony's stalwarts in their wc win.
but the pro level is a different kettle of fish. hoefully she makes it.
somebody in boston is nervous right now tho.
So who made the final roster for WNY and who got cut?
Final roster won't be out until tomorrow unless WNY steps up and releases info early like Boston and Philly have. All I know so far is that Elli Reed (who's been picked up by Boston) and Ashleigh Bowers have both been cut, so that leaves the Flash in need of a third keeper.

Now there are only 22 players. No mention of Ashlyn Harris or Rose Augustine. I don't understand why Harris isn't mentioned though? I assume Augustine was cut in favor of Maurine eventually joining.
That is very interesting. I was under the impression that she was a key acquisition to play in net this season. Very strange indeed.
I'm hoping it was a mistake. After all, according to the press release Ali Riley is now Ana Riley
Damn. I was hoping Rose Augustine would make the cut. She was a key part of the Notre Dame National Championship team.
Glad Brittany Bock made it.
In fact in retrospect, Emma Hayes would have been better off picking Bock as her #1 pick in the first year of the WPS over Rapinoe with the Red Stars.
You know what you get out of Brit Bock day in and day out = hard work, ready to play 100% every day, and no drama or whining.
MRAD: In retrospect there are *many* things that Hayes could have done differently. But that is an entirely different conversation for another day and another board.
I can only assume that the omission of Harris was an error since she was their first flagship signing...
But this is WPS and weirder things have happened, so who knows.
I see team President Alexandra Sahlen made the cut.
Yep the omission of Harris was an error. I contacted them on their Facebook and they didn't realize the mistake until then. Harris is still on the team.
That is PRICELESS. I'll give them a pass on every mistake this season cuz they are a new team and all...but that is simply unbelievable. That's like accidently leaving rajon rondo or ray allen off the celtics roster. That's not an oversight...that's like an entire missing paragraph lol.
This probably explains E Reed sudden trip to Boston.
Yeah them being a new team definitely is evident. Apparently this is Ali Riley everyone..
anyone know when Marta and Maurine arrive in the U.S.?
[LINEUP-4-3-3]Marta, Sinclair, Morgan, Edwards, Seger, Maurine, Riley, Engen, Chapman, Wilson,Harris[/LINEUP-4-3-3]
what's your favorite lineup if you could choose one?
Barring injury, I doubt there is any question about the starting front and back lines
If the wide backs are attacking we need some security to be provided by two holding backs. If indeed Maurine is going to show up, she had better be committed to cover Wilson/Riley. There are current and former members of the National squad on your bench who will compete for the mid-field positions. Maybe Maurine belongs at the front of the triangle and will have to share time up there with Seger.
I think Dan spoke of MagicJack in a 3-4-3 which they can pull off with Hope in net. Abby, Ella and Press up top. WNY looks crazy, and as with GP, they will probably push Riley and Wilson forward on the wings, as someone just noted. The only team with a back line to contain WNY or Jack is Boston. The WC is messing up the early part of the season but this season will be crazy when squads are complete jocking for playoff spots.
I watched a lot of matches of Maurine and she is a player more dangerous than Riley and Wilson... she is very fast and have a great shot.

Awesome offense I agree.
But if she does turn up maybe Seger will have to play more of a holding mid-field role.
If the team really Flashes on all cylinders maybe we make defense secondary and focus on scoring 5 goals a game!
That would get everyone's attention.
It is really bugging me that no one will tell us why Marta and Maurine are not in camp. I understand that the US and Canada National team players will report back tomorrow.
news... Maurine wrote in her twitter (@MaurineDorneles):
"A que bom vou viver uma vida nova daiki 6 dias to indo pro estados unidos nova york me aguarde estou chegando"
she will travel to USA in the next few days.... 6 days exactly
is the head coach still denying he knows nothing about maurine coming to wny? if maurine and joe sahlen say she is on her way....what's the pt of the coach playing i dont know? wps is in no shape to play games with fans. if she is coming then say so and get it over with.
Is anyone willing to bet that Marta (and possibly Maurine) will be in Boston for game 1? No sign of them yet and game day is getting very close. If not it is going to be a real downer for the fans at Soldier's Field and on TV.
I agree. Let the fans know what is going on.
Hey Sahlens, where is Marta?
I'd be fine with it!
