The last time Solo won a title with anyone other than her national team was in high school, when she led the Richland Bombers to a Washington state title in her senior year to culminate a 109-goal-scoring career as a forward. She transitioned to goalkeeper with the Washington Huskies and became the best keeper in the program’s history and one of the best in the college game. She was the first keeper to ever win Pac-10 Player of the Year and in her senior year was the only keeper on the Hermann Trophy watchlist.

can we talk about this woman for a second? this woman who was a fantastic forward in her youth career and later transitioned to being a goalkeeper, basically the biggest change in position a player can make? this woman who has since made the position her own and has almost indisputably become the greatest goalkeeper to ever play the women’s game? this woman who has overcome so much in her personal and professional life to get where she is today? if you’re not amazed by Hope Amelia Solo, even just as a goalkeeper and not a person, idk what to tell you honestly.

I bet Jill Ellis would call up this duck over Kelley O’Hara.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • NWSL will play a 20-game schedule in 2015 which will run from April to September
  • They will take a break for the Women’s World Cup group stages
  • All three federations are allocating players
  • Allocated players will miss between 7 and 8 games for the World Cup
  • The schedule will feature more weekend dates; an average of 1.3 mid-week games as opposed to the 7.8 average mid-week games in the 2014 season
  • There will be an average of 5.9 rest days between games
  • The NWSL semifinal dates will be on September 12 and 13, and the final will fall on September 26 or 27. This allows for two weeks in between the semifinal and final matches. It also avoids any conflict with FIFA dates.

Overall, this schedule seems to take into account many of the complaints from players, coaches, and fans about the 2014 scheduling. What are your thoughts on the announcement?
