i will not now be going to the villa liverpool match on sunday, i expect villa to remain in their own half ( though they have some cracking players) .
.
this will be (to me)  the main indicator of the wsl 2013 results.

ps, guys i still have the paper hat, if i am wrong i will eat it.

edited as plans changed dam*
i will be going edited again.

So Oxford Everton should be 0-5 but I can see a 1-0 goal from Stanley from a dropped ball by Dracula, with Cox and Osbourne-Ricketts both player of the  match  ;D

liverpool were very strong in midfield, and at keeping the ball.
decostas short passing in midfield was a joy to watch and the speed of attack nearly ovewhelmed villa.
the liverpool defence didnt get tested as much as i thought it would, so only a few liverpool weaknesses spotted.
villa put an immense effort into fighting off wave after wave of liverpool attacks and at times dowie was beaten to the ball by a very determined defense.
credit to both teams who finished very tired indeed.
oh, it was worth the two quid.

Results as expected except for Lincoln who beat Chelsea. Not a surprise though as The Imps have a good record against Chelsea.
Liverpool by 5, I was not for away with my 6-0 prediction.

I wouldn't say our result was expected, i certainly didn't expect us to win that easy and by as many goals after seeing how good City were in the (called off) League game at the Hetton Centre.

But the score wasn't flattering to us in the end, we were very good today, when Sophie Williams is hot she's HOT! Was a thorn in their side down the left, i don't think she put in a bad cross all game, and put in the cross for Beth Mead's diving header as well as scoring a great goal from the left edge of the box into the near top corner.

Home draw tomorrow please then a semi-final played at the Stadium of Light maybe?  :D

I certainly expected you to win by 2 or 3  ;)

The defeat is gonna put some pressure on Emma Hayes to deliver results with such a big investment in the team. You do wonder how they ended up with Blundell and Muya on the bench when they have such a big squad. I thought they would have had more senior players available.

You have more faith in my team than i do ;)

I thought we may win, but probably not as well as we did in the end. We had 3 or 4 players missing as well but we've got some great young players and fringe players that come in and do a good job.

As for City, not sure where it leaves them, but they definitely should be doing better with the players they have.

The City team has not changed much since they nearly beat you in January and narrowly lost 3-2 to you at home nor since the previous season where they lost again 4-0. Reading the match report seems like they failed trying to find the final ball.

As ever with most teams it's about consistency, they're mid table so obviously not that consistent? Not sure what you mean about the players they've got? Still are only playing in their first season in the National division, should imagine a Liverpool style overhaul of players if in WSL 1 and or a bit part shake up if in WSL 2.

Tbh i don't have much knowledge of the MCLFC team, and my answer was speculation to Sylvain implying they had a big squad, and if that's true then maybe they should be doing better than they currently are.

We don't have a big squad, but Mick Mulhern seems to be able to bring players from the reserves into the first team and get the best out of them. We had 3 or 4 first team regulars out today as well, but still won comfortably in the end.

When did he imply they had a big squad?

Sunderland are the top side in the division, have had a stable COE prior to recent events and pretty much have the pick of the players in the North East so they should bea very good side. You only have to look at recent results of the league and also games I have watched to know that the National is allo about consistancy and as a lot of these teams aren't full time some find it difficult.

I watch Cov v City in the FA Cup and saw Cov lay down and die in front of City, no effort, passion committment. However this same team went up and nearly took points off Sunderland.

Seeing the stats they City produce in fact this recent game against Sunderland yeilded more opportunities than they created agaisnt them in January.

Hard not to see Liverpool making the Final for me, Sunderland are physical and dont play a great deal through midfield and while they are effective when they come up against quality such as Liverpool can see them coming unstuck.

FA hoping for an Arsenal / Liverpool showdown?

No you're right, he didn't imply it, he said it. He said they had a big squad.

As for the rest of your post, i'm not sure whether you're praising Sunderland or slating them... it's hard to tell  :P
