Sam Kerr Thread

Shes heading to Europe for next season with the frontrunners for her signature being Chelsea and Lyon though sounding more like Chelsea. Theyve not playing champions league this season but on top of the domestic ladder after 5 games.

Chelsea do have some stars in attack such as Fran Kirby, Erin Cuthbert and Ramona Bachmann.

Given that Optus is showing the UK women’s league this season, it is a great chance to watch her week to week.

That’s brilliant, even though it’s been fun seeing her play here it’s about time she tore the rest of the world up.

She always looked like she was playing with cheat codes when she was in the W-League, especially when you saw her play live.

Hadn’t seen that, cheers.

Awesome for her. Hope she does well there

What a star, stoked for her.

Lots of mainstream press for this signing as well.

In related good news, Optus announced in the last week or two that they are showing WSL, so just in time it turns out we can watch her play in her new surroundings.

Also noteworthy that the signing was covered by most of the podcasts I listen to such as Guardian Football Weekly, Totally Football Show etc. And she got a message of support on Insta from Ronaldo('s media team). That’s just the Nike connection obviously, but there are lots of Nike athletes, and this indicates that she is one of a properly elite tier.

The Guardian’s list of the world’s top 100 women’s footballers has been won by Kerr. Fantastic effort and not undeserved. None of the world cup winners tore it up at domestic level, and a lot of the successful European based players didn’t have an amazing World cup.
