    That's a big-name signing right there.

    [​IMG] Northern Ireland: The first NI trophy of the year was the league cup final, held during the World Cup. Demi Vance got two goals in a minute to win it:

    [​IMG]


    In the league it's still Linfield on top, but Glentoran are effectively level after they beat the leaders 1-0. Eight more matchdays to go.


    Still undefeated, Peamount have 12 wins from 12 in the league. The only blemish was a semi-final defeat 2-1 to Dublin's Shelbourne, who went on to win the league cup this week:

    Here's a sneak preview:

    Speaking of errors,

    Blissett, if you're going to be a true Scotland fan and expert, you can't be mistaking Gaelic for English on TV. And it's essential to memorize all the Gaelic victory phrases. Here's your homework.

    [​IMG] Scotland: The SWPL season is back underway – Glasgow City got another important win over Hibs as they each chase the 2019 title.

    It'll be a sad day when City are overtaken by Celtic or Rangers, and not just for football reasons. Celtic won the Old Firm game 3-1 on Sunday – two days later headlines had Rangers accuse Celtic fans of sectarian and misogynistic abuse at the game. The two Rangers post-match interviews don't mention anything like that, and nothing else has come of it. The Celtic fan group denied it (in a childish statement), and the club apparently offered the game tape as evidence.

    In SWPL 2, a very competitive division this year: the top 6 are separated by 7pts. Hearts lost 1st place as they slipped up at home at the spaceship :eek: and Hamilton, relegated last year, beat Dundee United 2-0 to lead the league on goal difference.

    [​IMG] New manager for the Ireland team:

    Bell's been drawn by the bright lights of Huddersfield, but his replacement has also had experience in Germany as a manager and player – really a glittering career. "Maren Meinert – who led Germany to the UEFA U-19 Finals last month and has won 3 U-19 European titles and 2 U-20 Women's World Cups in her time coaching the German youth side" - (TribalFootball.com)

    I am surprised that Meinert in the past supposedly declined the position of manager of Germany Senior Women's NT (or at least, these were the voices at the time) and accepted instead to start her career in senior football with a somehow "minor" team.

    Or, on second thought, it could feel no surprising at all: maybe, despite her successes at youth level, she didn't want to "burn" herself right away by taking one of the most high-profile women's NTs in the world, and she chose to begin her senior career step by step. She could eventually end sitting on the bench of Germany NT, later in her career, but with much more experience at this level under her belt... :coffee:

    Meinert was not kept by the DFB and it did not look like a friendly split from what I read on German websites.
    So it's a great opportunity for her.

    One promotion from the Championship to the FA WSL. Rumours going round is at least four teams have gone full time this year.
