A few of my mates were in thailand and got chatting toba few swedish girls. The conversation got around to football and the girls said they played back home, so my mates challenged them to a 5 a side game in the beach. Unfortunately my mates got thrashed!! Three of the girls played for the Swedish U21s. My mates blamed it on too many beers the night before!! But in all fairness they said the girls were really good players and I think womens football is quite big in sweden.
My god that sounds like heaven, on the lash in Thailand playing football with Swedish birds on the beach.

Sorry I'm a misogynist when it comes to sport....

Can't be asked to watch women's cricket or football.... I also hate women presenters who haven't at least played the game (at women's level) their commentating about...

I ref Sunday League level and to be honest I get a buzz from it especially when a match gets a bit feisty, I was contemplating doing a few women's matches this coming season but after catching the back end of the England v Scotland match on TV, I'm looking to get some kids matches instead...
I think your watch has stopped mate...

Esox my old china..

Jacqui Oatley (the first female football presenter) wasn't born until 1975..... I think my watch stopped in the millenium rather than the early 70's actually....

I don't tend to count pretty looking bints on Sky Sports, Sky Sports News etc...

We have a couple of female refs in my (MALE) Sunday League and fair play to them in my book as they get called a "see you next tuesday" by the players as much as the men...

I've never seen so many fit body's with ugly boats.

Watching the women's euros on the box, long shot of a player im like yeah she's hot they pan in on the boat and she looks like a geezer.

Im all for anyone taking part in sport but my God watching these women trying to play football & acting like they are Pro's & that anyone gives a fu*k is going a step to far, the crowds are made up of purely kids & lesbians it's a joke it really is.

I guess that's why they hold these women's tournaments cricket football etc in June July Aug when the men's game isn't active.
You could tell that just from watching on TV ? Impressive. The kids are the ones without the crew-cuts and dungarees, right ?
Are headphones getting bigger, or are idiots getting smaller ?

Think most of us have done that.

I dont think anyone is denying girls the right to play any sport but saying you dont appreciate from a skill perspective shouldnt result people taking the moral high ground.

Ive watched loads of womens football and on the whole its rubbish. But there again so is watching Qpr lately. Womens football should not be beyond criticism. We dobhave free speech in this country, or we used to.

I've had my say on women's football & can hand on heart say I will never ever watch a game again.

I'm all for anyone taking part in Sport whatever level but to televise it is a different matter.

It's like puting a version of eastenders or a film on prime time tv only the actors are from your local pub & they basicly make the industry look a laughing stock, there would be an uproar in the press the next day.

Hmmm, I stand corrected, maybe as anachronistic as this...

Nah, it's been replaced by the noisy / offended / indignant (delete as applicable) politically correct minority asserting their 'authority' by the attempted silencing of others with a differing viewpoint. :roll:

...oh and yes, women's football is crap.
Question everything.

Thank goodness some of the throwbacks on here haven't asked whether shirts were swapped. Disgraceful behaviour.

Condoms were used that evening if it helps Don. Apparently two girls took advantage of two of the guys who were left feeling used and abused in bed as well as during the beach game. Some girls can be so cruel....

Big uproar as the RFU have stopped paying England women ( World Champions ) full time contracts .... I wonder why?

Last women's match I attended was 2003 womens FA Cup final between Fayeds Fulham Ladies team and Charlton Ladies as my nephew was a mascot and I didn't pay to watch it...

It was one sided as Fulham were professional and Charlton weren't.... Fayed packed the team in not long after as there was no gelt in the game and nobody's watching....

Things don't change as it seems the only clubs thriving are the ones with rich benefactors...
