Women’s World Cup

Post by bristleposh » 15 Jun 2019, 08:14

Having watched last nights game in its entirety, I have to say how much I enjoyed watching the Argies get beaten, they were just as cynical as their male counterparts. I did however feel sorry for their keeper who apart from saving a penalty made a string of important saves. I was watching it a Spanish bar with music playing, so no idea of any commentary, I’d be interested to hear from somebody who listened on English, do they have a man of the match, woman of the match or girl of the match, for me it had to be the Argentina goalkeeper

Scott the very tall ponytailed girl in midfield was imo by far the most influential England player.
She actually looked like a footballer as opposed to a girl who played football.

The overall standard of the football being played is pretty woeful but various individuals show a lot of talent.

It's football and so I'll give some of it a go but it's really best to observe it as a totally different sport to the proper game, a bit like golf and the two versions which are totally different.

I assume you are talking ladies golf and men’s golf as opposed to something like the open and crazy golf.

It's the Women's World Cup and the standard of football is definitely NOT woeful.
And it's nothing like golf.

Agreed Tony. The standard of women's football has risen quite dramatically in recent years. If only the men's game could have shown the same level of improvement instead of going down the cheating, wingeing, route that seems to pervade the male game. Give it time, a load more money and the women will be treading the same boards as the men - money, the route of all evil! :twisted:

Watching the Argentinians yesterday I think they all ready have the cynicism judging by some of time wasting and deliberate fouls to break up play

It has indeed risen. At best it is on the whole well below the national league standard though. btw ashman, if you watch enough there is plenty of 'gamesmanship' to be seen with play acting galore but I totally agree it's not as prevalent as in the men's game.

Don't you start! I have enough trouble with Wycliffe on this subject. :)
I support England in football and cricket and tiddlywinks except when they are playing Australia.

Womens' football is a sexist construct. There should not be separate competitions for men and women if , as women say, they should be treated equally.

I agree, it would be the same as allowing Celtic or Rangers play in the English leagues an uneven playing field

I suppose you would have them share dressing rooms as well.

With the millions of pounds available in football nowadays the cost of an additional 2 changing rooms wouldn't be out of this world. At lower levels the home and away teams could share. At present men of both sexual persuasions have to share. (In my day there weren't any homosexuals or if there were they kept it to themselves!)
