Steveo, I actually believe that was the ground-breaking moment in trying to bring it out into the open. Unlike the awareness raised today and the level of tolerance and acceptance gained, this was more taboo in the 90s.
Sean, haha or the Weekdays mate – I’d keep it on ITV just after the Footie results 🙂4th July 2019 at 10:08 am #42993
Unpopular opinion thread?
Hahahahaha and a shit fight ensues
Come on guys, no football for a month and you’re being fannies 😂4th July 2019 at 10:52 am #42996
June after all the Euphoria of the CL triumph just left me feeling full of boredom. Glad that month is gone. Plus, most tournaments for me regardless of the Sport naturally grow more interesting in the latter parts.
Good to see the Tennis now in action.4th July 2019 at 11:43 am #43001

Cant stand Holly oaks….but they used to have some fine looking ladies on there, i have not watched in since the harrowing late night male rape episode!4th July 2019 at 11:52 am #43004
So everyone loves Brookside, thought this was supposed to be the unpopular opinion thread?!
I have one, reading Nil’s comment about the tennis reminded me and with the ongoing women’s World Cup it kinda topical.
Men and women should compete together in sport.
For tennis, this would immediately remove the “why do women get paid less?” question (because they have to play less!).
In football, if you’re good enough it shouldn’t matter what sex you are, let see you on the pitch. And if you’re not good enough, drop down to the right level like everyone else.
Sure there’d be outcry about mixed-sex boxing and MMA mind!4th July 2019 at 12:07 pm #43006
I cant stand any of those soaps, there’s enough drama on here. Threeps, Agree and disagree. I mean you’re dead right, women wouldn’t be able to compete. As for this really really silly question of “why do women get paid less”? The market dictates price. Why don’t they ask why some women get paid more than other women? Oh because they can’t label that sexist.
The disagree part is because if women played football, they’d not only be unable to compete, they’d get destroyed. The second a man went in for a tackle, during match 1 of whatever league there was a chick, there would be uproar. It will never happen for this and other reasons. As for MMA hahaha ya… The “Ronda Rousey could beat up men” line that was perpetuated around a few years ago was just incredibly misguided. I’d “love” to have seen it, all 4 seconds of it.
Nil, it has been boring alright man, in sporting terms. I see that the Americans are loving the ladies WC. There are so many of them on reddit saying that the womens is better than the mens… hilarious.. but they say this because their men aren’t able to compete and well, womens football is a lot easier to get good at as it’s from a really small pool of the population, is in the early stages also and ya… well who cares what they think TBH.4th July 2019 at 12:12 pm #43008
Buffy-I dont watch any soaps since 2003,not got time for em any more.But all the ladies on Hollyoaks were stunners.4th July 2019 at 12:42 pm #43011
Threeps I often pose the question to the feminazis why is there no women playing in the elite rugby league competition in Oz (NRL). Now I’m not sexist at all, I have a daughter & a wife that I expect to be treated fairly in life but in the real world there’s just some things women can’t do as well as men. I say put 7 females & 6 males in every 1st grade team in the NRL, as well as local club competitions, & see how it ends up. I guarantee there wouldn’t be many females wanting to play after 1 game. I’ll get put on the sexist for saying it but I’m just being realistic.4th July 2019 at 12:49 pm #43013
Oz, my point isn’t to stick them in a top level team and see what happens, it’s to stick them in the correct level team and see what happens. If that’s Football Conference, then so be it, they will probably get paid more and play in front of more fans. Serena Williams at her best would probably beat a heck of a lot of top male tennis players and so would a few others.
Just play/watch sport according to the level of the sportsperson, not their sex. If they good enough, then they’re good enough.
I did say I had an unpopular opinion 😀4th July 2019 at 1:46 pm #43019
the reason the USA are streets ahead of the european teams in fitness and skill is…money
i was surprised myself thinking with all the top EU teams having a ladies side and playing top level (for them) including a champions league that they would be not only superior but years ahead, much like the mens game….
the difference comes in the schools and colleges, they have a huge budget throughout the school years across the board so ladies football has done well with amazing facilities and training from a very early age4th July 2019 at 2:17 pm #43022
Money, investment, development, faith and trust, plus allowance to actually flourish.
I think we’ve been there thereabouts with this tournament to be used ad a springboard.
I don’t think in America though there’s the goldfish bowl effect like our British media and Twitter.
No wonder one of the reasons why we’re behind because we’re too bothered about what other people think.4th July 2019 at 2:21 pm #43023
Mak, it’s been a struggle mate from a social pov. Can’t really book anywhere as I’m saving my holidays for when Liverpool are live on tv.
I’m working more this Summer. Hope get this fortnight out of he way and we’ll be seeing pre-season.
Just trying to enjoy it mate the best I can like watching Glastonbury last weekend.
Cheers ⚽️5th July 2019 at 10:26 pm #43077
Attitudes, UK change/changing.
One would rightly argue BBC TV License.
