@JohnnyShoulder I get that but 3 weeks without a competitive game. Seems a bit odd to me. If they brought it back a week everyones a winner.

@themcnoisy When would it be played though? It was the final of the Prem last weekend and the FA Cup this weekend, the next free weekend is when it is being played. And that is just in England. I don't see what the problem is really. What's the rush bro?

@JohnnyShoulder they should put that game back a Week. Then the season will be wrapped up by the end of May.


So it's getting exciting round here. Next Saturday is going to be huge for Football. Absolutely massive game and a chance to make history.

So who's your money on England Women or New Zealand Women?

@themcnoisy Spanish league games were still being played the previous week as were Italian league games and the FA cuo. That is just off the top off my slightly drunken head, I don't if other euro leagues were still being played.

@JohnnyShoulder I know Johnny. What I am saying is its wrong from a European wide perspective. The Spanish always finish later and that shouldn't be the case - more symmetry is needed.

@themcnoisy It's only a another week's wait though and it is not just the Spanish league, other countries are still playing? Like I said before I don't really see what the issue is. This will always happen with so many different leagues across Europe to think of. Some countries finished weeks ago some are still playing. Some countries have a winter break, some do not. It is just the way it is. And don't forget some leagues were fudged cos of the world cup last year.

With Firmino and Keita trying to get fit I'd expect Liverpool supporters to be fine with the wait. To be fair, Tottenham have injury woes too.

JohnnyShoulder

@Frigate Yeah Spurs have Kane, Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen coming back from injury, and a couple more either ruled out completely or just been passed fit.

Anyone with a genuine interest in the women's world cup this summer?

The French League only finished yesterday and both the Scottish (although when was the last time a Scottish team competed in the final - it must be 40yrs or more now) Cup, the Copa Del Rey take place today and of course the Italian League finishes this weekend (tomorrow).

It just so happens that English Clubs have made it through to the finals of both competitions. However if Barcelona and Juventus (for example) had made it through, they would only have a week before the Champion's League Final and if teams like Valencia or AC Milan had reached the Europa Final, they would have had 4days before the final.

Its partly because the English League has no winter breaks despite also having two domestic Cup competitions (although one finishes in February) that gives English clubs a bit of a longer wait to play the European finals. The date and venue of these was set before a ball was kicked in the competition and had to account for teams all over Europe irrespective of when their league and cup competitions finish. Therefore they are only 4days to a week after the French and Italian league finishing and the Scottish & Spanish cup finals too. That is why its so late and also generally why the Summer Transfer window opens in June for the rest of Europe too.

@Frigate I might watch it when Sweden play because they're pretty fit...I mean decent...at playing football and stuff. Yeah.

It does seem like we've been waiting for frickin' yonks for this CL final.

@Frigate Yeah I'll be watching it. The women's game is criminally underrated and England have a more-than-decent shot of winning it this year.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 Criminally underrated is right. Not as much here in the United States but I know how it's seen in other parts of the world. I don't watch an awful lot of the club game but the level of the international game is very high, particularly the attacking play. I'm pretty excited about it.

For the first time the italian state tv will broadcast the female world cup so it will have a bigger audience and a chance to gain more followers.

Certainly, Womens football is growing and having more televised matches will help bring it to more peoples attention. Its not surprising that the US has a bigger following as the US ladies team have been successful on the big stage.

Winning the World Cup - at least having a decent run in the competition will help too. The fact its televised will increase the awareness and ultimately raise stadium attendances in the future - at least hopefully. I don't know if its helped the youth game - England at various Age groups had a very successful year but I don't know if that has helped raise awareness, increased attendances etc for the youth sides.

Personally, I have seen more of the Womens game this season/year than ever before and not 'just' UK teams either as I watched some of the Ladies Champions League matches inc the final (Lyon vs Barca). A few years ago, it was 'rare' to see any news, rare to see any matches on TV (not just Terrestrial/free view channels but even Premium TV services like Sky). BT Sport has shown quite a few matches and the BBC have had a regular (weekly) show dedicated too Womens Football.

It does annoy me that some think the Womens game doesn't have the quality of football that you may see in the Championship, or even League 1 but I think its different. You are not likely to see a 6'4" Goalkeeper with big Defenders - not saying its impossible, just unlikely. With time, money, TV coverage to inspire more girls to play from a young age, we should see big improvements. Its the same in the men's game too but they often have an advantage because they start much younger and encouraged more with more opportunity too - such as at school or after-school with friends (if they aren't home playing video games...)

It would be great to see interest grow, see the game grow and see the quality improve. I will be watching the World Cup too...

Any Chelsea fans on the forums?

Well played absolutely smashed Arsenal. Poor game for Ozil and both Lacazette and Aubamayang. Some awful misses too.
