I remember when I was working somewhere in the mid 90’s and women used to regularly tell me and the others to shut up when we spoke about football, sorry I can’t and won’t accept women playing football it’s bizarre

Of those chances one went over and the other two were well dealt with by Mary Earpes, one being a very good diving save.

One thing that is certainly more entertaining than some of the more recent England mens games is that they play to win not to draw and keep up consistant press

ure on the oppositions defence

Although as I said above not one of their best performances but it was still an exciting game to watch.


About as exciting as your posts

Wtf are you smoking

It’s boring,embarrassing, painful… which part of that don’t you understand

Tennis all day long

It's England and it's better than the bloody Tennis (actually, anything is better than Tennis!)
Good luck to them

Good time to repost Richard’s initial thoughts:

Now a plea to some on here for while the Euros are on:
Everyone is very aware that Women's football is not seen favourably by a few people on here but please if you’re one of those that can't stand it, don't care about it or any other negative emotion can you just ignore it and any thread that might be on here about it without feeling the need to actually post against it.

We wanted this to be a positive thread for those of us interested in the tournament to discuss the matches/England’s chances. Unfortunately it’s being derailed - despite Richard’s kindly worded plea - by so much negativity.

The way l look at it is that it's football, a game we all love.
It's our national team so I want to see them do well. I realise that the speed and power of it all is not comparable to the mens game but the skill level is catching up.
I'd rather watch a game of football (at any level) than most other sports.

It’s not the standard that gets me it’s the fact that 99% of girls/ women detested the game once upon a time and now it seems like a 50/50 split which is extremely odd!

Why is it odd, though? What's so weird about women liking the game more now than they did in the past?

In fairness, you could say the same thing whenever England do well in a competition.
The amount of 'Football fans' who turned up down my local was ridiculous. One bloke even asking me 'which team are England '
Same thing for the Shots. How many turned up for the Man U game?

Maybe they never detested it. Maybe it was something to do with women being banned from playing the game until 1971 (hard to believe now) or the fact that if a woman walked around the edge of the pitch 30 odd years ago they would've been greeted by chants of "get your t*ts out for the lads". Just a couple of good reasons why women may not have wanted to get involved.

Thanks goodness the world (on the surface anyway) is a better place and 50% of the population are now allowed and feel comfortable to take part in our national game.

And the problem with that is?
