Podcast — Missed us? Of course you did! The Pro Foul Podcast team is back this week with another episode dedicated to the women’s game. RJ, Rachael and André discuss U.S. Soccer this week and their stronghold on Rose Lavelle.
Also, the team tackles other players wanting to leave the NWSL and go to Europe. With no official decision on what will happen for the rest of 2020, players want to get their boots on and go overseas.
Finally, the trio discuss their wishlists for players they want to see enter the NWSL. Of course, the non-Costa Rican has a bunch of Costa Ricans on her list. And, Rachael had to list at least one Russian player.
Below are the show notes. Please rate, review and subscribe to the Pro Foul Podcast today! And, of course, we want to shout out our sister website, Backline Soccer, on turning four last week!

André Carlisle writes some, tweets a lot and tires not to let soccer ruin his life — and he often fails at all three. Still, the sport is his favorite thing in the world and it is an honor to have it step on his emotions. If you want to read things that André writes, or laugh at his angst, you can find him on Twitter @not_carlisle, covering the Washington Spirit at Black and Red United or writing about Chelsea at We Ain’t Got Not History.
Also, like any dejected wannabe columnist in this era of digital media, he also has a newsletter called No Love in Fear — though he’s no quite sure what he’s doing with it yet. You have been warned!
