    depends on the season
    I'm going to post the little section about Abbs (and other big/powerful type players)

    "7. Can all the doubts about Abby Wambach cease now? She wasn't selected for the U.S. Gold Cup squad because of doubts about certain parts of her game. She was considered a risky pick in the WUSA draft because of her work ethic and lack of skills. In all counts, she continues to prove her critics wrong. Rookie of the Year in the WUSA, and a dominating performance in the Gold Cup win over Panama (getting called up to fill in for the injured Heather O'Reilly) should prove she needs to be in serious consideration for the starting 11. Those of you who closely follow women's soccer know how the game is changing from finesse to power and athleticism. Germany and Norway's success is proof of that, and how some teams, like China, will begin to struggle if they don't adapt. While Tiffany Milbrett, Mia Hamm, and Kristine Lilly continue to dominate the game, the U.S. needs to make sure Wambach, Cindy Parlow, and Danielle Fotopolous remain involved in the game plan"
