    Yeah, womens football has developed a lot over the recent years. Our best player, and probably the best player in the World, Ada Hegerberg, has said a big no thanks to the international team. Very sad that, she’s a fantastic player.

    When you say good, am never quite sure you mean the women, or the actual game of football ?

    Why start a discussion about something you aren't watching?

    Maybe it's just me, but it seems like theres been a jump in quality since the Euros two years ago, and that's a very good thing. It's never going to be as good, or even close, to men's football, but it improving as it is is a great thing as its starting to become quite watchable.

    It was the cheap, unoriginal, unfunny gag, more than the sexism.

    sweet - thanks, will watch a few.

    We always do a 'ladies of the world cup' thread - someone should do one for this world cup too!

    I've watched womens football for years. I get hooked in and then disappointed, every time. It's just extremely frustrating to watch.

    It was on at a bar I was at yesterday, and I have to say the quality was surprisingly good. It's not for me though. I can barely watch any non-Liverpool football anyway though, unless it's just highlights.

    No, it won't be up to the standard as the men's. Well, the physical aspect won't be, I don't see any reason why the skill levels won't be the same. Which could then arguably mean that it'll be better to watch...

    Anyway, even if it doesn't get to the same level, the average pro female player will still be better than 99.99% of the general male population but it still won't stop them from saying that it's shite.

    That's an idea for a thread we can all get behind.

    I don't mind watching really.  But the complainining about the difference in prize money cracks me up.

    It doesn't bring in the TV revenues, or sponsorship to match, yet it's claimed this is a sign of gender based pay inequity.

    One of the English women's footballers came out and said they shouldn't be paid the same. It was refreshing and honest.

    I watched bits, intrigued to see if many others are.. The women's game cleary has developed in recent years, but the standard is very poor...  

    I always find the goal keeping is worse than Sunday League..

    This means that either a] you've never had one and never going to or b] you're constantly having one

    Either way, sort out your act!
