B'ham have changed their fixture for 1st Feb. to their county cup game (that should have taken place yesterday) so no worries about Hall and Bird been away, shouldn't need them for that match. So the Arsenal game goes into the fixtures to be arranged.

when do the under 23s go to la manga?  If anyone's going can we have some feedback.  The FA dont seem to put anything on their website.

I have just noticed Steph Houghton was called up for La Manga and Cyprus with the seniors.
So Brent Hills must have called up another defender because as far I see there are 2 goalies
3 defenders 4 midfielders 7 wingers and 1 center forward.

Remember that some girls can play in more than one position.  Dunia Susi can be winger, defender, midfielder.  Sophie Perry has played as a striker.

 Postponed game are on the way again then.
Forecast is rain and between 7 to 14 degrees   :(

Remember that some girls can play in more than one position.  Dunia Susi can be winger, defender, midfielder.  Sophie Perry has played as a striker.
At least, this will be an attacking team. This squad is exactly the opposite kind of the one that went to Chile that had only like three attacking options on the bench.

Looks like Hall Bird Dowie Susi (and any other chelsea players) played today so they must be joining the U23s after their games.  Hope the matches are played in la manga maybe the weather will dry up.

Just as well you're not hurrying back for Arsenal v Cardiff at Emirates, as it's off.

Here's what you're missing:

The match was a 2-0 win to England, both goals by Jess Clark in the first half.  Identical set-pieces five minutes apart.  More from the Norwegian FA on:

A win for the U23s.  It looks as though clarke has made her mark now and will gain a place in the senior training squad.  I presume she played on one of the wings.  So this will leave bird, davison and susi out of the selection for seniors now.  Possibly this year being their lst appearances for international side.  Im not sure how old they are.  Can they all play right and left wing, I know susi can play defence and midfield as well as wing.  Anyone know if it was a defensive or attacking side, potentially attacking, but England emphasise defensive play/

I missed the game as they delayed it to 2100 and my flight was at 2120.
Actually it ended up cancelled. :o
Your flight was cancelled?  :o
You do get bad luck with your travels mate - I'd stay put if I were you ;)

Hope you weren't rushing back to watch Arsenal v Cardiff  :D

Try and get back for game at Spurs (if you've got a ticket) - you might get to see Arshavin ;)
