Miley Clegg at Racing Louisville.
Interesting to see Racing Louisville second women's team played in the USL comp this week. But Miley Clegg didn't feature.
So she is obviously seen more as a first team player.
Just wonder though where she is going to get game time leading into the Olympics in a few months after not playing for 5 or so months now.

Yeah but Louisville's trainings will be high quality, and she will be being pushed every day by top players. Plus the Ferns have 2 games against Japan in Spain coming up, and presumably some other pre Olympic friendlies.

And if she isn't playing for their 2nd team, then they must seriously be considering her for first team mins. They are struggling a bit in 11th (14 teams).

Macey Fraser's Utah Royals are last, hence their keeness to get Fraser stateside ASAP.

Yes but even the best training is never the same as game time. If she is not match fit then at best she will be a sub for the Ferns. That's what I expect we will see in the games against Japan. Still two months to the Olympics though, so who knows. And got to remember how young she still is. Her time will no doubt come.

Today's announced Ferns squad.

Barry, Foster, Jale, Stott, Taylor & Wilkinson, are all now out of season, and have been for weeks if not months. All of them will now be out of season up to the Olympics. Just the gym, running and pre season club training.

Clegg is in season, and in a daily training environment a good few levels above the weak ALW. Everything Clegg does at training surrounded by top drawer internationals, will be quicker paced than an ALW game. Like Singh would have had to be on point at each Bayern senior team training, as much as any game with the Nix prior.

Lets see how Clegg looks for the Ferns against Japan.

Interesting that Sheaff was picked as the 3rd keeper, in yesterday's Ferns squad. 

Edwards unavailable? She actually hasn't been involved with the Ferms since December last year in Colombia.

Leat & Esson are locked in for the Olympics, but there is still a 3rd GK travelling reserve spot up for grabs. Worse things in life than going to a Paris Olympics, even if have almost zero chance of actually playing.

At the U20 womens world cup Sheaff was the #1 keeper under Gemma Lewis. Edwards was on the bench. So Sheaff is obviously rated. Interesting though. Didn't Edwards pull out of the last Ferns squad.....Might be more going on here. Maybe Edwards is just sick of sitting on the bench. after this A leafgue season and is enjoying playing at NPL level.

She'll be eligible for U20 world cup later this year then. maybe even the next one in 2026. 
Current team is stacked with good midfielders though. Still nothing wrong with building depth.

Is Fraser fit? She hadn't made the bench yet,but Utah are losing every game. Seems strange.

Also Clegg and other striker subs not used when Racing are losing.  Peculiar.

Fraser only arrived about 2 weeks ago with a Spanish youth international. Had to wait on her work visa.

NWSL is a very big step up from the weak ALW. A few Aussie girls have apparently gone there and struggled to get meaningful mins. Fraser will need time to get up to speed even if her Utah team are struggling.

0-1 loss to the 2nd placed Kansas City Current, who have a number of Canadian, Brazilian & USA senior/age group internationals. A few have actually played a bit in the ALW when younger.

But yeah I'm sure the Utah coaching staff have no idea at all. Head gaffer Amy 
Rodriguez 13 years in the USWL as a player & 13 years also in the USWNT. 

Utah are a resurrected club, that disappeared from the league for awhile. First season back in the USWL.

Hopefully after the Ferns verus Japan friendlies she can come back to earn a starters role with Utah.

But yeah she's basically been there 3-4 weeks, and it's one of the world's toughest leagues. She'll need some time.

ERIN NAYLER – BAYERN MUNICH (GERMAN BUNDESLIGA)
The farewells have been spoken. Erin Nayler’s stint at Bayern Munich is confirmed to be at an end after one season. She showed up. They won the Bundesliga. She left. Can’t fault the influence.

Nayler did spent the overwhelming bulk of the season as the third-choice keeper. Extended benches meant she was able to hang about in the matchday squad for a few Champions League games but she was usually on the outside looking in for domestic games. Fair enough, that was her role. She was signed to provide experienced depth and to aid the development of their 22-year-old starter Maria-Luisa Grohs (for a comparison, think of Jack Duncan at the Wellington Phoenix last season). Everyone seemed to know what the arrangement was going in so no dramas whatsoever.

But she did make one appearance. With the league title already sorted, Nayler was included on the bench for the final home game of the Bundesliga season. It was a 4-0 win over Nürnberg. Same game as they made the departing player presentations in beforehand (hence why she’s got the bib on in the pic)... and with ten minutes to go she was subbed on in place of Grohs. Didn’t need to make a save. Did get a couple of touches with her feet. A winning debut for Nayler and now it’s off to the next stop.

Not watching the game, but she should have some good team mates around her.

Fellow midfielders -
34 yr old Amandine Henry has over 100 caps for France, and 21 yr old Dana Foederer a Dutch age group international.

22 yr old CB Ana Tejada who joined Utah at the same time as Fraser, is a Spanish age group international with one senior cap. Maybe it's the team's Americans who are the weak link(s)
