Talksport is my radio station of choice. I'd love to know how many switched to a music channel when the burds fitba came on.

Gags like this and the iron one are a bit cringe imo, it’s for the Carry On film enthusiasts. No offence. I watched The England Scotland game and thought they’d be better off on a 3/4 pitch. They were pretty good technically but something was missing from making it a spectacle I’d want to watch without a vested interest. Like a less competitive Dunfermline v Dundee

Watched a few of the games and enjoyed them. It is not overly physical like a guys game and not as fast paced but it's better than watching Scotland mens team play. :) And that Brazilian lass scored a peach of a header that Derek Johnstone would have been proud of.

I love The Carry On Films , I have every one on DVD , however that's got nothing to do with my opinion that women's football is shite :p

13-0 is the kind of score you see at U10s kids football. Have to say it was annoying that the main headline on the BBC was that game. It shouldn’t even be on the same page as men’s football.
Should keep them separate. If you want to read about women’s football it should all be there, but you shouldn’t have to constantly read about it if you don’t give a %^*&

The men's and women's world cup both had 11 goals in a game as their record up until today. (Germany 11-0 Argentina and Hungary 10-1 El Salvador)

Rather than declare it historic, you'd rather immediately be negative about it. I'll assume Germany beating Brazil was pish anaw then because there were too many goals

Youth football barely gets a mention on the BBC website but is infinitely more important than women’s football.

So far...Mince but will Will watch the remaining Scotland group games and then the later stages. If it gets girls interested in the game and exercising then great but it makes a nonsense to think the Chelsea Women's coach would be considered for the men's team from what I've seen.
Would Being a female youth boys coach and excelling be a better pathway to management surely?

Quite incredible the difference in international caps between the men and women
Mens record- Ahmed Hassan Egypt 184 caps
Womens record- Kristine Lilly USA 354

Do they play every month,nearly double that of the men's record,most men don't even reach that amount for their clubs.

Have watch parts of but not all of the games so far. What stick out is the top teams are miles ahead of the rest. Despite the scoreline, England were much better than the Scots girls. Too much just booting the ball out of play or upfield for it to come straight back at you. Japan surprisingly much better than Argentina. Skill levels are good, but heading and tackling seem to be a weakness throughout.
Japan who have been in the final the last 2 world cups:))

some of the comments on here are tim worthy! have to say i find the usa just disrespectful! certain great Rangers managers would have cuffed them if they were their players.

Haven't watched a minute of it, apart from unavoidable goal clips on the news.

Seen bigger crowds at a Mearns Amateurs v Giffnock North game.

The ugly looking lemons that have started appearing on Sportscene is more than enough for me.

2nd rate pish.

Seen clips of it in passing, doesn’t interest me in the slightest. The standard hasn’t been great but I didn’t expect anything less having had a spell involved in the woman’s game.

The standard has improved greatly but not enough to get me to sit down and watch it.

Welcome to the new agenda Mearns. This is what they’ll be pushing from now on.
