I'm going to hazard a guess that I've seen a lot more womens football than you.

Going off your post i cant answer.

I dont exactly watch a lot. If theres some on tv I'll watch it. Also watched a bit a few years ago when the Euros (i think) were in England and a few games were at Bloomfield road.

I follow the English league, the European Cup and the international tournaments. From what I've seen of those over the last 10 years, pub football can't hold a candle to it.

Either that or your pub league is filled with former pros.

So England v Russia. Line ups:

England: Bardsley, Alex Scott, Bassett, Stoney, Houghton, Asante, Jill Scott, Aluko, Williams, Yankey, White. Subs: Brown, Bradley, Clarke, Carney, Nobbs, Duggan, Susi, Bonner, Moore, Bronze, Smith, Chamberlain.

Russia: Todua, Petrova, Sidorovskaya, Tsybutovich, Medved, Kostyukova, Savchenkova, Terekhova, Korovkina, Sochneva, Morozova. Subs: Grichenko, Gordeeva, Stepanenko, Dyachkova, Bessolova, Kurochkina, Pozdeeva, Skotnikova, Pertseva, Shlyapina, Makarenko, Shirokova.

Jill Scott just had a cracking shot, pushed onto the post for a corner.

So, half time, England down 1-0, having lost Rachel Yankey.

Yet to play anything like as well as they can. We'll get battered by France if we play like this.

Kelly Smith comes on. Desperate times for England. They've been rubbish, and hopes rest now on a player who's been injured for forever.

Duggan equalises!

We're still probably going out barring an unlikely winner.

So thoughts. Toni Duggan HAS to start against France. Whoever starts though, if we play like that, France will stroll to victory.

A 34 year old one legged Kelly Smith is still head and shoulders above everyone else.

The team seem to be suffering from the same malaise the mens do. A distinct lack of effort from hugely established players. The only players who had any urgency were those with something to prove - the kids and the injured.

I don't watch much of women's football but saw some of the Spain-France game earlier. From what I saw it was a good game and had players that Ste your pub team only wish they had!

I watch womens football but its hardly ever on tv. Have a friend who plays professionally here so I go to games and watch the world cup every time. Sadly these euros aren't on tv here so I cant contribute to this tournament

don't believe this at all. i saw the highlights from the england/spain 3-2. the england keeper headed it into her own net. piss poor.

marta, 5 time consecutive wpoty so probably the goat female player. average at best. she has some skill but is very slow, weak shots etc.

women are just too physically inferior to compete against the men.

also most men have played football all their lives, i did, most of my mates did too, i've played against semi-professional men and players who've been in the villa academy and held my own against them. there is a much smaller pool of women to draw from which means the quality is even worse.

if you got an average men's sunday league team they'd beat the england women. they'd just use their strength to shield the ball and out sprint them, take powerful potshots from anywhere and they'd go in. look how poor the keepers are.

No. You might have an argument if we were talking Conference teams and above, but a sunday league team? No chance.

i used to train with these, the players were all very good and pretty good athletes considering we weren't professional. there were a couple in the villa academy at the time but don't think they went on to anything special. the team enters the fa cup qualifying rounds.

Right, so a semi-professional team that has played in the Conference twice and currently plays in the Conference South is your example of a Sunday league team?

This is a Sunday League.

Ah right. That makes more sense then. Well I've never seen them so I can't speak for their quality, but I can for the Lancashire Sunday league. Your guys might be shit hot - these lads aren't.

For me comparing a women's sport, be it football, basketball ice hockey or whatever, to their male counter part just doesn't stand up. The game become a totally different when played by women, usually they are not as strong or as fast and that changes the tactics and strategies. The game must be looked at for its own merits and either accepted or rejected, comparing it to the mens game is asking 7 year old schoolboys to play against teenagers.

basically.

should just merge the male and female leagues. that would put an end to all of this. and nobody can complain either because it's completely egalitarian.
