Anyone been watching any of this or have any interest at all?
any views on a team beating another 13-0?!12th June 2019 at 9:59 am #42381
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 #42393OzParticipant46 pts
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).12th June 2019 at 8:08 pm #42432newbalanceSpectator190 pts
Something was mentioned about not having any Male Parties involved as far as the Punditry scene goes. And they go on about feminism and equality.
I love Football as a Sport and always will do, but because of all this political stuff, it puts me off from entering and engaging into the actual game itself.22nd June 2019 at 5:09 pm #42751AnonymousInactive65 pts
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 #42755AnonymousInactive65 pts
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 #42759AnonymousInactive65 pts
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 #42762AnonymousInactive65 pts
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 …………2nd July 2019 at 8:18 am #42901
semi finals against the USA tonight…should be a good one2nd July 2019 at 8:20 am #42902
tho if the teams fail to swap shirts after the game…yet again….i shall be dissapointed2nd July 2019 at 3:08 pm #42907
I’ll be watching it, Steveo. I really enjoyed the Norway game at the weekend and it would be good to put one over the USA, though my opinion of the USA team did go up when their captain told reporters she wouldn’t visit the f***** White House. Obvious dig at Trump which always scores highly in my book!!2nd July 2019 at 3:12 pm #42908
I think some of the football has been pretty good, and the ball is in play a lot more than in the men’s game. They play it around and are not afraid to take risks. Hate to give Phil Neville too much credit, but he is doing a Southgate and getting people behind the team.
