I watched the england-Scotland game on Sunday, Steveo, and if you accept that it is a very different game from men’s football, it was pretty good to watch. It was competitive, and there were some moments of good skill. The problem comes when you compare it to men’s football which is obviously much faster and more physical, but yeah, I will probably try and watch the england games.
As for the 13-0 last night, it was unfortunate and obviously does the women’s game no favours a result like that, but what can you do? You don’t want to have a World Cup just for the elite teams, but the physicality, speed and skill of the Americans just swamped the Thais unfortunately.12th June 2019 at 10:13 am #42383
I see the Yanks are getting a bit of grief for what many considered somewhat over the top celebrations during their 13-0 win…
But other than that, have absolutely no interest at all…12th June 2019 at 10:32 am #42387
there have been some good games and some very poor games, the gulf in quality for top teams to the rest is far more vast than even the mens game with the likes of San Marino!
i catch the odd game here and there, some of the football is good and other times ilaugh out loud as i see errors or poor ball control you expect to see in sunday league with players thropwing up on the side of the pitch 🙂12th June 2019 at 11:34 am #42393
One positive is there is nowhere near the amount of diving as in the men’s game.12th June 2019 at 12:17 pm #42394
That’s even worse, women who don’t go down easy?? Who wants that??? 🙂

Go down easy, I’ve no idea what your talking about chuckster ( yes I’ve been married for a long time).22nd June 2019 at 5:09 pm #42751
Anyone watching the Germany vs Nigeria game ?? If that’s what’s coming in the EPL next season god help us all, 2 insane VAR decisions…………22nd June 2019 at 5:15 pm #42752
Sorry, buddy, women’s footy with Finnish commentary?!?! Not with “Forged In Fire” on the other channel… 🙂22nd June 2019 at 5:28 pm #42755
Hi Chucky, I saw that once and was mighty impressed by the skills the Bladesmiths have.22nd June 2019 at 5:31 pm #42758
Tonight’s episode (adverts are on!) is a Champions of Champions thing… the best of the best…22nd June 2019 at 5:32 pm #42759
Going back to the Womans World Cup after watching for 2 or 3 minutes, it’s just good football, you don’t think about who’s playing ,but I do get the Finnish commentary .22nd June 2019 at 5:34 pm #42760
Getting far too hooked on this show, even the Misses (who’s been after a bigger gaff for years now) is trying the “well, if we get something in the country” and “look, this one has a shed that could be a forge” e-mail links… I think I’m moving house soon… 🙂
(It used to be “well, if we get something in the country” and “look, your own office/library!”)22nd June 2019 at 5:35 pm #42761
Maybe I’ll catch a bit later…
So, what was “wrong” about the VAR?22nd June 2019 at 6:31 pm #42762
Chucks check the first German goal ridiculous, then the Nigerian miskicked but made slight contact on the ball and carried through and kicked the German, penalty …………
