Oh, magicjack...they were Washington Freedom but were bought by Dan Borislow, inventor of the magicjack usb device. And then he bought about half the USWNT. In a world cup year when they'd all be gone a lot.
Their coach left/was fired/idek and then Borislow himself was banned from matches (and fined). I hear that at the game on Wednesday no one knew what the line-up was going to be before the game, and Abby was the only one communicating with the players from the bench.
I also hear that Christie Rampone is likely to help Abby out - she became player-coach of Sky Blue FC at the end of the 2009 WPS season and led them through the playoffs to a championship! So I feel bad for all the players cos it seems like a stressful club to play for, but I'm excited because I adore Abby and Christie. And I think player-coaches are sexy.
England lost to France in the quarterfinals, so naturally they rose four spots to overcome them in the rankings...well, at least FIFA is totally equal-opportunity in one arena: shit that makes no sense.
Bojan is already taking fashion tips from Borriello. (Horrible photoshoping, I know, but I did this really quickly. :p)
FC Barcelona and AS Roma have reached an agreement for the sale of Bojan Krkic for 12 million euros. The player will be giving a press conference at 13.30 in the Ricard Maxenchs pressroom at the Camp Nou. ( Collapse )
