WoSo Zone NWSL Preview Episode on Portland Thorns


Kieran Theivam and JJ Duke's quick analyses of each NWSL team and their upcoming season is really great. The Portland Thorns episode includes a really great interview with Portland's favorite defender, Emily Menges, as well as some great discussion of Portland's potential in the season! Theivam's point about Parsons's consistency (he's three for three on bringing teams to the semi-finals in the NWSL) is really an excellent point, and should make every Thorns fan excited about the coming season!
