Sister Emma is finally here (w/ Butter, from Shea Butter FC)

Sister Emma is finally here (w/ Butter, from Shea Butter FC)

Fresh off hoisting her fifth consecutive WSL title and 16th Chelsea trophy overall, the Sister Emma USWNT era has now officially begun with a roster drop ahead of two June friendlies versus South Korea.

Courtney & André hop on the mics with 1/2 of Shea Butter FC, Skye, to discuss the drop. We get into each position group, why we're hype or have questions, and also look at who may have been left out. After a break, we also get into what we expect to be different about the USWNT under Emma Hayes.

Orlando Thee Pride, Brazil’s WWC bid, and Courtney tells a joke

Orlando Thee Pride, Brazil’s WWC bid, and Courtney tells a joke

It's been a minute so Courtney & André power through loads of woso news. We start with a sad addition to the sick & shut-in list, then talk about the Women's Club World Cup, Brazil's 2027 World Cup bid, and FIFA threatening to suspend Zambia.

Then we move to the NWSL to spotlight Orlando de Janeiro, and discuss how there's a lot more happening down there than Barbra Banda (though she is outrageous). We also discuss Kansas City, Gotham and Portland, plus André goes on a rant about Jaedyn Shaw and Casey Stoney.

After we hop the pond to...

Uncle Drogba warned us about this (plus NWSL updates)

Uncle Drogba warned us about this (plus NWSL updates)

Courtney & André review the shambolic shenanigans at Stamford Bridge. Courtney was in London to see the heist in person, and gives her eyewitness account. We talk about how frustrating it was that a ref ruined the most intriguing 150 minutes of football all season.

Then we update the NWSL weekend that was, including Barbra Banda reintroducing herself, Jaedyn Shaw doing a madness, and Reilyn Turner being the truth.

20 goals for 4/20, Banda make her dance, & the DU Derby

20 goals for 4/20, Banda make her dance, & the DU Derby

The woso was woso'ing, the league was league'ing, and the UWCL was UWCLing, and Courtney & André review it all. We start with a quick Euro trip to discuss a historic day in the UWCL, then we talk about Bunny Shaw's foot injury and what might be next for Gareth Taylor, and Bunneh (😈). Then we hop to the NWSL to discuss week 5, including the Diaspora United Derby, Barbra Banda's debut, María Sánchez's old and new teams, plus whether Portland and Rahsing actually figured something out or whether they were just playing bad teams. In Heated & Hyped we're big mad about...

WE heard something y'all [NWSL, WSL and Brazil]

Courtney & André get straight into the news of María Sánchez requesting a trade, why she may want out of Houston, and a few places we think she'd cook. Then we look at the mess in Portland, Mike Norris' reassignment, and their reported global search for a coach.

Then we get into the IG fallout from the FA Cup semifinal where Millie Turner decided to post a still photo without considering, or caring, about the racism and hate it'd bring to Lauren James. We also get into bias in refereeing and the danger it puts Mayra Ram...

Mal Back, Comeback, Cat Back, & SheDoesntBelieve in Consequences

Mal Back, Comeback, Cat Back, & SheDoesntBelieve in Consequences

Courtney & André break down the USWNT's 2-1 comeback win over Japan. We discuss the opening goal, what led to it, and the funny reaction in the stadium. Then we talk about how important the USWNT rediscovering their high press was to neutralizing a very dangerous opponent.

We also spotlight Mallory Swanson, Sam Coffey and Jaedyn Shaw. Plus we review the triple sub that put Korbin Albert on the pitch somewhat unexpectedly, which was at the very least bad optics, and how it also stole a moment that Catarina Macário deserved.

Alarmed at what SheBelieves

Alarmed at what SheBelieves

Courtney & André discuss the hateful and harmful posts shared by Korbin Albert, the legacy of the USWNT, Megan Rapinoe's response, and what was missing from her apology.

Then we shift to talk about our expectations from each team at SheBelieves. We look at some interesting roster decisions across the four teams, and what to look for from each on the pitch.

After, we do a quick roundup of European football, then drop some of our observations from the first three weeks of the 2024 NWSL season.

USWNT SERIOUS FOOTBALLING BUSINESS (+ NWSL Vibe Check)

The USWNT squad for the upcoming SheBelieves tournament dropped and it is some serious footballing business. Courtney & André talk about the return of Cat and Mal, and what it means that 16-year-old Lily Yohannes accepted her first USWNT senior callup.

Then we do an NWSL Vibe Check to discuss every team, what they've looked like so far, what they might be building, and/or what they're missing. We get into whatever the hell Houston is doing, give out incomplete grades for Orlando and Washington, and shoutout players who are already putting in top performances.
