Lotta Schelin nominated for Best Women’s Player in Europe Award
Olympique Lyonnais’ Lotta Schelin is one of eleven players on the shortlist for the Best Women’s Player in Europe Award. The shortlist was voted for by the coaches of the eight teams that took part in last season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-finals. The ten other nominated players are Verónica Boquete, Nilla Fischer, Lena Goessling, Nadine Kessler, Lena Lotzen, Marta, Martina Müller, Alexandra Popp, Christen Press and Caroline Seger. 
In the second round, the voting jury for the women’s award will be composed of twelve journalists. The three final nominees are scheduled to be named on Thursday 14 August 2014. The same jury will then cast their votes live in Monaco during a special ceremony on the occasion of the UEFA Champions League group stage draw, with the journalists using an electronic system to determine the winner.
In addition to Lotta Schelin, Louisa Necib and Wendie Renard received votes in the initial poll which consisted of a total of 20 players. Necib tied for 12th place with Ramona Bachmann, Melanie Behringer and Karen Carney, while Renard tied for 16th place with Kim Little, Anja Mittag and Julia Simic. In 20th place was Patrizia Panico.

So according to Alex Morgan, every team in NWSL want Thorns to host a playoff game, because of great atmosphere their fans provide!
I guess she expects other teams to deliberately drop points to Portland or what?

Notice the tone in her voice and face expression - arrogance overload…


^^^at 3:23 mark^^^

arrogant isn’t the word I would use, but I also don’t know what word I would use.  Definitely not a tone that I enjoy hearing from her to say the least. 

I’m not saying she’s wrong though, other teams have been pretty vocal about how much they love the atmosphere in Portland, but I think it’s a tad bit critical to say “I guess she expects other teams to deliberately drop points to Portland or what?”…you’re reaching there friend.
