The Weekly

More after the jump:

First off, Pia Sundhage has named her 21 player roster that will represent the United States in the summer’s Women’s World Cup.  Check that out here.

Yael Averbuch failed to make the roster despite foregoing the beginning of the WPS season.  Read her insightful blog post here.

More on this subject throughout the week.  There were a lot of interesting things said on Monday’s conference call and those points will be developed throughout the week.  And yes, I realize it is now May 10, not May9, but we’ll stick with the production date.

The weekend’s WPS results:

Western New York Flash 3-1 Sky Blue FC

magicJack 2-0 Atlanta Beat

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Mike Lyons is no longer the coach of magicJack but just a consultant. Things just keep getting crazier in Florida.

Philadelphia Independence 2-0 Boston Breakers

Attendance update: 1,704 in Rochester, 952 in Florida and 1,879 in Philadelphia (home opener).  Ouch.  That brings the league average to 2,437.  Another ouch.

Sorry for the brevity of this post, folks.  We’ll let the video serve as the main analysis component this week.  Once again, a big thank you goes out to the North American Soccer Network for producing the show.  Look for more great production going forward and check out
