Women's World Cup

Recommended Posts

I won't be watching but hope it all goes well. Great for young female players and the increase in money if great but expectations to get paid the same as men is a joke. For the money the game brings in it well funded already at world level. 

 

We are only a couple of years beyond one of the best teams in woman's football losing 7-0 to a Australian boys u15 team in a warm up to the Olympics

Don’t get this from the BBC. It seems a bit sexist. It’s headed Women’s World Cup, so why would you need to put ‘women’ after the team names? They don’t put ‘men’ after the name of the men’s team.

Chinese making the Germans look ordinary here, still 0-0 coming up to H/T but the Chinese should really be ahead.

Isn't that what the teams are actually called then?

To be fair to the BBC, I think this is response to a lot of complaints about mixing in links to women's football with men's. A similar thing happened with the Guardian, where they'd often have a headline like 'Arsenal 2- Chelsea 3', accompanied by a tiny pic- people were clicking on it not realising it was a women's match and getting annoyed, thinking they were being tricked by click bait. They seem to have stopped that now, and mark games and reports a lot more clearly.

I haven’t watched women’s football for a while, so I’ve just watched the first twenty minutes or so of England v Scotland. The standard of football is still fucking rubbish. Laughably bad. Switching it off.

The standard really isn’t that bad, just a bit inconsistent at this level. A large proportion of the players are not even professional but there’s still plenty of quality and it’s a far more interesting game than that nations league bollocks earlier

The goalkeeper seems to be kicking the ball to their own defender while they are in the penalty area. Presumably the goalkick rules are different in the women's game compared to men's? 

Nope. New rule change in. Applies across the board. Although may be from next season in the men’s game.

Spot on. 

Good on the lasses, but let's not kid ourselves, the "quality" is fucking laughable.
