    Women's World Cup

    England have so far got better in each game in my opinion, which is what you want to see at a tournament. Those goals were well created. That fucking brass band tho...

    Can't really say how he's doing tactically, but his (wo)man management has seemes to me to be really good, so fair play to him.

    Women's World Cup

    Currently in the world cup, they are averaging 3 goals a game. Would expect this to fall as the competition progresses and the weaker teams drop out. The Premier League averaged 2.8 goals per game, for the world cup in Russia it was 2.6. I don't see the issue with the goal sizes if they are scoring roughly the same amount of goals as in the men's game? Also, wouldn't this possibly cause issues at the grass roots level, where pitches are increasingly becoming harder to come by? They'd have to play on pitches for U13/14, and my guess is there is less of them than full size pitches.

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    I'm sure its similar for some of the other teams, but this England team could have had Trent, Gomez, Sancho, Rashford, Hudson-Odoi, Chilwell and even Dele Alli. For a look at the potential future stars, probably better off watching the U17 & U19s Thought England looked quite good up until the sending off

  9. Watching viRdjil stress was probably more entertaining than the game! I basically knew after Mo scored the penalty, so treated the match as a celebration

    Happy Fathers Day

    Had breakfast brought to me in bed and then sang Liverpool songs. That usually pissed the wife off, but she couldn't say anything this time! Had a couple of hours in the park kicking a ball about with the kids in the afternoon

    Women's World Cup

    And the top 400-500 professional men's tennis players would beat Serena Williams And that Caster Semanya's, who apparently has too much testosterone, fastest 800m is about 1.55. The men's world record in 1912 was about 1.52. Once puberty hits, all bets are off, that's just the way it is, so there isn't really any point in comparing the women to the men. The matches should be taken at there own merit. I had the misfortune of seeing Southend play live a couple of months ago, and it was worst football I have seen for years, the women's matches I've seen have been far more entertaining.

    I'm just watching it now for first time, and this may well be hindsight bias, but he did not look right at all in the ring walk or in the ring prefight.

    Women's World Cup

    I've only really seen the US women's team doing that, and to be fair, the US women's team earned more money (or profit, can't remember) than the US Men's team for their federation due to their relative success compared to the men. At least they did after they won the last world cup 4 years ago.

    Women's World Cup

    That Rachel Yankey was in the year below me at secondary school. I didn't realise she was a girl until about the 3rd or 4th year as she had short back and sides and everyone called her "Ray", but found out that was so she could play for a boys footy team. Thankfully things have changed since then, girls can now play in mixed teams until 18!

    I've noticed over the past few months that The Telegraph have been putting a lot more resources into reporting on women's football, so this might be the best place for written coverage https://www.telegraph.co.uk/world-cup/ And I did not know that Steph Houghton was married to Stephen Darby!

    Women's World Cup

    Exactly, I watch plenty of our U23s and U18s, and sometimes it is rubbish! Not sure I agree on the goals, bigger goals means more goals, and unless they are all going in at one end, it should mean more exciting games which can help its development. I think the keeper issues should improve as the playing pool gets bigger. For a while it was possibly a case of if wanted to play in goal, you was good enough to play in goal!
