Ryan, Lilly and Wambach

We have learned that allegedly Greg Ryan's decision to drop Solo and replace her with Scurry may have been more than just agreed to by Lilly and Wambach, and the change may actually have been instigated by Lilly and Wambach.
If true, that of course would shed some light on Solo's banishment and Lilly and Wambach's support of Ryan in the aftermath.

We understand that there is a split among squad members between 12 younger players who continue in their support of Solo and 6 senior players who sided with Lilly, Wambach and Ryan.
During a team meeting it was agreed to put the differences aside and to focus on becoming "the third greatest team you have never heard of."

It appears that Ryan maybe influenced if not outright led by the senior players and thus his bizarre player changes and behavior.

Ultimately, in our opinion, his coaching credibility has been destroyed and his ability to lead greatly compromised.
