What They're Saying: Jessica Fishlock

"Alex came over here and made sure that the women's team changed their training fields because where they were training was unacceptable and now they're training on the men's training grounds. It takes those kind of people to create change. We know that. And at some point over here we're sure that will happen. But I feel like we are in that little pot where we should be thankful and really grateful right now that we have this. That's how it's portrayed: 'You should be grateful now.' No, we shouldn't be grateful for the basic standards being met."

-- Jessica Fishlock on Alex Morgan's impact at Tottenham's women's team during her short stay. Fishlock, who plays for Reading on loan from OL Reign, said the levels and standards U.S. stars expect are a lot higher than what is available in the Women's Super League and they will have an "everlasting" influence on the English women's game off the field.
