she's a big girl and am sure she would settle down south, like all the other Arsenal girls have..... ;D Would love to have her team up with Ellen White and Nobbs....

She's very family orientated so i reckon she would stay local rather than head down south.
Would love to see her pulling on a red shirt alongside Dowie.

long term, I believe she would be better off at Arsenal but can understand why she would be reluctant to leave 'home'.....

why would she be better there long term?  Might be difficult to realise but other clubs are moving on now and announcing training up to 5 times a week whilst arsenal still havent. could well be that as the Belles had their era which ended it may well be arsenals time to see their time at the top finished.

Arsenal wouldnt be the place Id advise an aspiring player to move to anymore.

yes i know, it was the crawl word, made me think of someone on their belly sneaking off.
i imagine she will be well paid from now and will get a central contract for england.

She will be in demand certainly.  Apart from the money, Arsenal don't have cl next year. If man city chase the best players it possibly will create another threat to arsenal so it may have had its time.

Arsenal haven't moved with the rest of the league as far as contracts go but in the long term maybe that's the best way to go. Remember the short term dominance of Fulham when it went pro then mr harrods pulled his money out.

 The league hasn't pulled in masses of crowd interest so far. Surely it has to pay its way to a certain extent to survive. I hope it will grow stronger and girls deserve living wage, they work hard enough. Dugan Maya's we'll go for the cash while it's there. ;D

its ashame that liverpool are accused of "buying the title" , of course bristol may win but sometimes money can win, arsenal for 10 years paid their staff more than other clubs.
its lovely to  see investment in womens football, if duggan moves its to earn a living doing something that few women can.
boot on the other foot?.
i guessed that birmingham would be overtaken this season, and did you know they had a tiny budget?, but they have one shot with the champions league.

Good luck to any of the players they should take advantage of financial rewards while they can.

Birmingham nice club. Good luck to them.

Absolutely if you get paid peanuts for a job and somebody offers you a lot more and better working conditions ? That is an easy answer.

I don't think Liverpool bought the title, they just invested properly in their women's section. Bristol did recruit very cleverly and have a very special team spirit to be around and fighting for the title. Credit to both side.

Should Duggan decide to leave, there is 2 logical option unless Arsenal go for full time like Liverpool and Notts County.

Liverpool have six foreign players that start and five British... And those that are home grown came from other clubs so it's a fair assumption to say they've brought the title. Bristol on the other hand only have three foreign players so they have done much better, IMHO

What should Liverpool have done though? If they hadn't tried to turn the ship around it was on course for WSL 2. It's silly to think they wouldn't have made an attempt to avoid that, and it's unfair to dismiss their recruitment when the time constraints didn't actually allow them to sit and wait for the COE to start churning out stars anyway.

You have to remember that the title was not actually their aim this season, top four was. So they've done far better than they (and everybody else for that matter) expected. Maybe in some ways signing a load of players in one go as opposed to producing their own was indeed a shortcut to achieving that top four aim - but you can't buy overachievement; that is always earnt.

Exactly.  They had to rebuild and get players.  Probably exactly what man city are doing.
