Lia is a huge loss. Heath can’t play a full 90, and we have no idea how healthy Foord is. Will we even see 3 subs tonight? Advantage WOB.

So are we not allowing a valid point to be expressed here?

I questioned how fit Heath was for a starting spot. I doubt she’ll last the 90. And does that mean Jonas has no trust in Parris?

Is there a reason to not start Foord? Heath will never last the game and is injury prone. Could be a huge mistake Jonas makes.

Why the vagueness? Is Walti injured?

It’s interesting that Iwabuchi–considered such a good signing, and certainly a good/very good player–has played so little for Arsenel this season. Played a lot early, but not much in the last couple of months–owing to various knocks, I guess.
