Anonymous asked:harris sucks. now do you see?
you know, i thought about not answering this, but here’s the thing
a) if you know she’s my favorite player, you’re a douchebag for coming into my ask to do this just because she had a game that wasn’t her best
b) you’re discrediting the flash, two of those goals were very very nice goals, it’s not like they walked into our net unchallenged or scored on soft chances
c) just because not everyone in the world is born with the talents of hope solo doesn’t make them suck. is she hope solo level? no. is she barnie level? nope. but she’s a good keeper. and a good person. and a good teammate. and i really don’t care what you think about her, so keep it out of my face. thanks.
Anonymous asked:ashlyn harris sucksssss asssss and she showed today why she doesn't get any call ups to the national team! shes just a whiny cocky and arrogant average player and she thinks shes as good as hope. pathetic
you know, i could find some articles that could show you just how wrong you are, where players and coaches from overseas praise ashlyn’s work rate, ethics, passion and love for the game. there is even a quote from lauren holiday (do you even know who she is?) where she even says ashlyn is one of the top 10 goalkeepers out there, so no, she’s not an average player like you said.
nobody is as good as hope solo, nobody is as good as nadine angerer and nobody is as good as ashlyn harris, and you know why? because they are fantastic players and they are unique and they have their own style and strengths and weaknesses and they don’t aspire to be as good as another player, they aspire to be as good as they can to be the best version of the player they are.
and if you are judging her for the mistakes she made during this game, then that just proves how *you* are the pathetic whiny average fan that knows nothing about the game and feels entitled to criticize a professional player, a professional and successful athlete, while sitting on their couch scratching their head.
