Keep, ancient Eurotrash, your storied pomp! Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses of Real News Items about the world of women's football yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of Eurotrash's teeming shore of linguistic speculations, gender-theory rants, and horse cakes. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost Real News Items to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door! —cf. original, in case a refresher is needed In other words, here's a thread for news and near-news of leagues and national teams that not are discussed down here quite often enough to merit their own threads; this group is subject of course to change. It's easier to list who this list does not include; as of right now, this thread should not include stuff about the national teams of Sweden and Germany, or the highest leagues of Sweden, Germany, and England, each of which has its own thread in this forum. We'll see how this goes. May the Force be with us, and may the Great Cladist forgive the implied approval of paraphyletic groupings.
