I don't follow football but I did watch this game. I think the men have a lot to learn from the women. Well done.

Fantastic result for the girls and English football in general. Pity we didn't score a few more goals though as I quite enjoyed the removal of Chloe Kelly's shirt when she scored  :D

I've really enjoyed watching the celebrations. Women's football attracts a family audience, so we don't see the same alcohol fuelled near-hooliganism* that follows the men's game.

It'll no doubt creep into the women's game. Cava tents will spring up outside grounds, Man.City Women sponsored by Aldi Sauvignon Blanc, Chelsea by Chablis and then it'll all kick off (and I'm talking stilettos here not trainers)  :D - just joking!

Seriously, well done to them  :thumbsup:

Cheers, weave  :beers:

for me the highlight of the series was that back heeled goal in the semi-final.

I don't know if that was luck or pure skillful awareness, but it was brilliantly done.

disgusted though, to hear on the news the disparity between what the Italians got from their win compared to what England will get.

I'd guess some of the so called male 'stars' earn that in a week.


I was only half listening to some news this morning and, if I heard correctly, the England women's team get something like £25,000 per year!, which is what some of the male players get per week!. Definitely something wrong there.

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

The revenue brought in by the men's game is over 100 times the women so they are over paid at 25k a year!.. Joking aside as more sponsorship etc..and higher standards of play come into the game hopefully some of the top woman can make a living from the game but it will need a massive increase in physical attendance at games for this to happen. Good luck to them.
