    Beth has had 4 caps, but just spare change playing time. She's allready 25 years old, yet only 3rd string(next to White & Taylor) in Neville's lone striker scheme,.

    Neville has announced his roster picks for Germany & no Fran Kirby! Yet he's brought back Nobbs & Stanway, despite both of them not looking at all good in their return games from injury

    Neville's also getting heat for not picking Galton & Amy Turner(who've gotten quite excellent reviews so far this season) & then as well on loosing out the dual citizen, Alana Cook, to the US(though if new coach, Vlatko, don't play/cap her, she still can be available) Havn't seen Alana play ---perhaps , Shjl can provide some scouting report on her?

    Amy Turner's been mostly good/fine, but she was fairly iffy against Reading in my opinion. I believe you've typed out the wrong Turner who's been getting very good reviews so far this season. People have been quite high on Millie Turner, and I agree with them. Bar a couple of notable defensive errors, she's been very solid for Man Utd Women.

    Yeah, he got heat for not picking Galton, but that should die down with Stoney stating that she keeps in regular contact with Neville regarding Galton and that Galton's just not ready yet mentally for international football.

    Liverpool lost to Championship side Villa 2-0 yesterday in the Conti Cup, while Chelsea won 2-1 at Lewes. Sinking ship at Liverpool. Very worrying for them.

    another promising prospect is the 21 year old, Chloe Kelly, who's currently the leading scorer in the league right now(but that'z cuz their so busy with cup games instead). She got just 1 cap under her belt & that was a friednly last year with just 12 min. to her credit. Not sure where she would play(in Neville's just 1 lone striker scheme), she probably reminds most of Toni Duggan with her long shots/ Here's a bit of her in action; that 2nd goal is a 'cracker'

    "Pauw lays no blame at the feet of either player as she added that both Payne and Scott tried their best to get released.
    'They are very disappointed, they have tried everything to get here. We cannot blame the players
    '[The colleges] promise golden mountains, and that you will be released for international duty, but that is the coach, and then the professor says no, or they will stop the scholarship, so the players have no choice.'"

    Huh? The quote you shared doesn't explain this sentence.

    Doesn't it? I thought cashless meant "we've run out of money". :D (Just like their ex-chairman Alan Sugar always said they would.) Disregard these rumours

    [​IMG] Other WSL games on Sunday, earlier in the day:

    Sam Kerr is signing for Chelsea, but she won't play for them until January due to the transfer window. Rumour has it, after her big-money signing, Chelsea are now cashless.

    If you're talking about a person or organization, maybe. But what that quote is talking about - "Is the stadium cashless?" - is a fan FAQ about how to pay for things within the stadium. That is, whether you're buying food or merchandise, you can't use cash, everything is supposed to be done digitally. That's the meaning of cashless in that instance.

    another record set; 38K came to support the Arsenal/Spurs derby(highlights below). Arsenal dominates but still finds itself in 3rd place to Man City on goal difference
    Summary - Women's Super League - England - Results, fixtures, tables and news - Women Soccerway
    Man City still got to play Chelsea though(hopefully for their sake, before Sam Kerr arrives, lol).

    another story out of England, Phil Neville clains he made a big coup by hiring away from the USWNT, it's conditioning trainer, Dawn Scott. I don't get this at all; I mean maybe this Scott is an excellent trainer, but you would of think by now any squad playing at this high of a level would of had a top trainer as well. Got the feeling it's Neville just making excuses why he's so under performing

    You just need to read the articles on Dawn Scott to know how good she is and why she is rated so highly among her peers.

    Why did she left USWNT, in your opinion? Andonovski wanted a different kind of conditioning or anyway had a different name in mind as a head of fitness? Or it was her who didn't have the same feeling with Andonovski that she had with Ellis? Or maybe she just wanted to try something different by starting anew with another team? Or, finally, the offer FA made was so good that it couldn't be refused?

    Could be all those reasons. New challenge, money and helping her home country.

    I notice a lot of scoring chances that are squandered because players don't think to chip the ball. There is always the instinct to whelp it--and then it's a miss. Tottenham could have scored twice against Arsenal with chips: On the first Graham broke behind the Arsenal defense and was in in the keeper, who came out at least 12 yards to challenge, I estimate: Graham could have fairly easily chipped the ball over Zinsberger and scored but instead fired a shot straight at the keeper and didn't score. Not long after, Dean was 1v1 with the Arsenel keep on the left side of the six-yard box, give or take; it was a somewhat challenging angle, but she had plenty of time and an easy (clever) dink over the keeper would have been a goal; instead, she too tried to scorch the ball into the far corner but hit it too hard, which negated any chance of curling the shot, and she missed wide.

    For its part, Arsenal was not at its attacking best. I noticed, watching the highlights, that the team's wingers on a few occasions did not get the ball to open mids inside the 18-yard-box, or were slow to make the centering pass, and chances were lost. Still, a solid-enough performance by the Gunners.

    in the meantime......Phil Neville might be shuttering, spotted at the Arsenal/Spurs game is none other thatn Dawn Scotts old boss, Jill Ellis. Coincidence, or part of a package?
    got the feeling it will be Dawn of an new era for England

    Not a Lloyd fan, but off the top of my head, her second against Sweden recently.

    here's highlights the Chelsea/Man U matchup, from reading on an English fan message board. Man U is the one team their most excited about, Guess it's cuz unlike Chelsea & Arsenal, they got actual Eng;ish players on it, lol(the two former only start about 2-3 ENG)


    here was the FA game of the week(though no sound), another stunning crowd(24K) even though hometown Liverpool is currently in last place


    as more of a fan of the Bundesliga(where I still feel they play better soccer), I'm definitely envious of these big crowds, the big game between Wolfsburg & Bayern Munich only drew 1.4K!

    Wonder why. Just not as popular? Or the men’s season just overlaps women’s on the same days and times?

    don't know why that sleeping giant of German broso fans don't wake up to woso especially now that their men's NT has fallen down to #16 in FIFA rankings(just 5 ahead of the US). Their women's NT as well plays to small crowds(3-7K average)

    Think Arsenal and Chelsea will go to the top. Even without Sam Kerr, Chelsea has been very good.

    going back to this game's winning pk, there's a lot of controversy if this was actually a foul/penalty. Millie Truner first hits ball, but the resulting tumble seemed to make it a very dangerous tackle.

    Her Football Hub on Twitter: "There’s been a lot of mixed opinions on the penalty that was given against Millie Turner, resulting in Chelsea’s ultimate win. What do you think? Pen or no pen? https://t.co/IPf1hZTPca"

    good call or not? any thoughts
