our goalkeeper

Sky Blue FC’s coach and captain left them in the middle of the season, and they only managed to get #6 in the NWSL standings, but did that stop them from having fun? NO

They got us many dramatic comebacks, Sam Kerr scored a gazillion goals, Kelley O’Hara always did The Most in every match, our rookie goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan had an amazing season despite the problems in her backline.

Also, they fostered Brooklyn, the best dog ever, and found her a great forever home. 

They’re out there celebrating by getting drunk, eating hot dogs and jumping into puddles.

I love them.

#6 in soccer, #1 in FUN

Goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher is making up for lost time with U.S. women's soccer team
Alyssa Naeher may be the best women’s goalkeeper you’ve never heard of.
By Kevin Baxter

Hope Solo is undisputedly the best goalie in women’s soccer history. In 15 years she won 153 games and posted 102 shutouts in 195 starts. No other keeper — male or female — has come close to matching any of those numbers.

So for eight years Naeher mainly sat and watched and waited her turn. This year, with Solo out of the picture, she’s finally getting that chance.

“I’m just happy to have the opportunity now,” she said. “Any time you get to step on the field, wear the crest, it’s a privilege and it’s an honor.”

Obviously Alyssa’s our No. 1 goalkeeper,” said U.S. coach Jill Ellis, who has started Naeher in five straight national team games, making her the first U.S. keeper other than Solo to do that since 2011.

“The way players get in form is many minutes, many games, and hard games as well. That’s what I think the winning combination is: minutes, challenging games and being able to go through that cycle without interruption.”

“She’s really stepped into that role,” said defender Casey Short, a teammate with both the Red Stars and the national team. “She’s worked her butt off for this moment. I don’t think she’s timid at all.

“She’s very passionate and our leader.”

And at 29, she’s arguably just entering the prime of her career — which is why Naeher won’t allow herself to look back at the time she’s missed for fear of missing what’s to come.

It’s important to stay present in the moment,” Naeher said. “This is what’s in front of me right now. I have the opportunity to play — and play a few games back to back. It’s all forward thinking.

“It’s ‘what can I do to be better tomorrow. What can I do to keep improving my game?’ ”

DEAR GOD, BLESS AND PROTECT OUR PLAYERS FROM EVERY HARM, AND GUIDE THEIR WAY TO VICTORY🙏🙏🙏🙏

May our goalkeeper have the reflexes of a cat and speed of a cheetah.🐆

May our defenders have the focus speed and strength of a tiger on the prowl.🐯🐯🐯

May our strikers have the definition and finishing that would make the best snipers jealous.⚽🎯⚽🎯⚽🎯

May our midfielders have the precision and accuracy that would make Xavi proud. 💯💯💯

In your name we pray, 🙏 Amen

2012 London Olympics. U.S. v.s. North Korea.

“The game was on Hope’s birthday, so we thought she needed some fun. Abby proposed that Hope would do the worm if anyone on our team scored. With the possibility of a worm-dancing goalkeeper in our future, the mood was light when we hit the field at Old Trafford. Abby scored in the 25th minute. Sure enough, Hope dropped to the ground and did the worm! Christie Rampone joined in, and we all grabbed hands and did a little worm wave with our arms. It was hilarious, and it brought us all together in the same way making those snow angels had done years before.” – Alex Morgan, “Breakaway - Beyond the Goal”.

“6 MONTHS?”

“I’m sorry Y/N. My friend who works at the pathological institute said they’ll try to do the test faster but the police showers them with DNA tests. He told me 6 months is a short time. Others have to wait more than a year until they’ll get their results.” Sam tried to defend his friend, sipping on his kale smoothie. It was already 7 am and you had to prepare breakfast before the little grasshoppers were awake.

“But we can’t wait 6 months for the paternity test results. What should we do until then? What if she’s not his daughter? What if this is just a big mistake? She doesn’t even look like him.” You thought about her dark black hair, her tanned skin and her blue eyes.

Sam just rolled his eyes. “You know how genetics work Y/N. Don’t be irrational now.” You knew you were defeated, but you couldn’t help yourself, but think about the consequences of this situation

STOP COMPARING SVEN ULREICH & MANUEL NEUER OR TALKING ABOUT HOW NEUER “WOULD HAVE SAVED THAT BALL”.
