Most keepers have that craziness. Definitely not partner material, although she'd get a gig.

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.

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.

    • That's very nice but given my exceptionally humble nature, I would accept to merely be part of a Ligue 1 transfer targets committee, although I would expect my expert opinion to be given much credence. 
    • The looming shadow of Everton has actually finished a couple of our greatest managers, their obsession with Everton eventually taking its toll on them. Klopp's going the same way..........    Saint Domingo Player Valuation: £70m Today at 1:34 PM   Add bookmark #29,904 He intimidates the media and the referees alike and does it expertly. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He denigrates other clubs and creates sound bites for the commercial success of his own. Referees and pundits know that if they make a call against his team, or come out against him in the press, he is at the head of probably the most powerful propaganda system in football at the moment and could probably end the career of anyone he wanted. 

      That’s why prior to the CL win he had never been questioned at any point about trophyless seasons, his complete disregard for the FA Cup, his hypocrisy on not spending money, his tapping up of players. Meanwhile Mourinho Conte and Sarri have effectively been hounded out of jobs by the media despite having far more success than him. 

      He’s a sinister man who knows exactly what he’s doing in how he portrays this zany hipster uncle image yet let’s the mask slip whenever remotely threatened. The amount of times he’s come out against Everton alone when we’re a complete non entity in terms of competition at the top of the league is bizarre. Calling our football wild just because we haven’t rolled over for him every single time we’ve played them, trying to insinuate we’ve spent loads when his own club was outspending everyone in Europe. Even having a pop at us when he won the CL, in what should have been the height of his career he had Everton on his mind. Mind you Dalglish got so consumed with us that he blew up from the job twice, and Benitez was also unhealthily obsessed with us so he is at least following in a proud tradition of unhinged Liverpool managers.    Like Quote Reply Report    Reactions:cronullasharks, Naisy'sCharitableLeanings, Jonte and 4 others
    • I wouldn't imagine BGJ would expect the same pay level , as I'm sure he is aware that the original amount was skewed by him being on a free.
    • Still have no idea why goalies always commit at penalties , the one above is a perfect example.   After the clown starts approaching like he is having a fit there is no way he can have full control over his shot, so just fucking wait to see where it is going.
