We went to Manchester for the City Liverpool game.
Not a good night all in all - had to go to the ticket office to collect tickets left for us by a player - upon getting there - all the printers had broke so no one could get tickets! Had a 20 minute or so wait there, then when we actually got to the ground you couldn't really see much for the low sun! Not a fan of the seating area being set back from the pitch either - felt like we needed binoculars! And then the less said about the result and match itself the better I think!

Reading 2 Arsenal 0

Reading parked the bus and played on the counter with Kirby.
Arsenal never found the key, Smith did not get out of the bench.
Kerr rotated a few players and position putting Hoogendjik Stoney v Kirby...
Suffice to say Kirby made many runs and 2 goals before HT and Williamson switch to midfield to patrol in front of the center backs.

Wasnt good how the Stewards cleared the ground out immediately after the final whistle either. Theyll have to learn that there is interaction between players and support. Its not the mens game.

Tonight, Belles went 2 down to sunderland and were worthy winners. If they play like that for the rest of the season, then promotion is guaranteed. A pleasure to watch an organised and committed team. Belles did not turn up for most of the 90 mins.

A tale of two halves to use an old cliche :)

We easily had the better of the first half and pretty much battered them. They had the second half hitting the woodwork twice, having a chance cleared off the line and forcing a great double save from Rachael Laws.

The difference was when we had our period we were more clinical. The move for our first goal was superb, finished even more superbly by Beth Mead. If that had been scored by a mens team it would be shown on the highlights all week!

Here's the highlights anyway, i'll let you all decide  :-X

Did they? We hung back for about 5 mins after the final whistle - and i think the rest of the travelling Liverpool girls hung around and spoke to the players afterwards.

Or "parked the train" as Jayne described it!

Then again, when you have someone who can outpace Alex Scott, let alone every CB in the WSL, then I suspect there's going to be an easy way of scoring: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDOrKPN01w4&list=UUnQpt1UxLq00NFULxTDHMww&feature=share&index=1

So group 1 table looks like this at the moment :

1. Chelsea 9 pts pl 4 GD +6
2. Reading 7 pts pl 4 GD +8
3. Arsenal 6 pts pl 3 GD +4
4. Millwall 5 pts pl 4 GD -3
5. Watford 3 pts pl 4 GD -6
6. London Bees 1 pt pl 4 GD -9

Extract from the competition rules :

Only players registered for a Club shall be eligible to play for that Club in any one Season. A player shall not play for more than one Club in the League Cup Competition during any one Season. A Club playing an ineligible player shall be removed from the Competition, and be subject to a fine as decided by the Management Committee.

So it looks like Reading could be deducted points and fined for playing an ineligable player then, I believe Harwood has turned out also for Watford in the conti cup!

I think they will be kicked out as per the rules, so what happens to the points ?  
Their results were

Reading 1 Chelsea 2
Millwall 1 Reading 1
Reading 2 Arsenal 0
London Bees 1 Reading 8

so if all the opponents are all awarded a win we would be on :

1. Chelsea 9 pts pl 4
2. Arsenal 9 pts pl 3
3. Millwall 7 pts pl 4
4. Watford 6 pts pl 5
5.  London Bees 4 pts pl 4
6. Reading 0 pt pl 5

Am i just being blonde - but how can you fail to realise one of your players is cup tied?
Surely the player herself would have known.

Aliens? The government? It's all a conspiracy i tells tha  ;)

P.S. Can our game v Everton be cancelled this week so we don't risk losing any players through injury for the second half of our promotion push  :D

Reading Women FC have been removed from The FA WSL Continental Cup for fielding an ineligible player.

The club admitted a charged by the League (FA WSL) for fielding an ineligible player in their FA WSL Continental Cup match on Sunday 6 July 2014 against London Bees.

It was alleged that Bonnie Horwood, who started in the match, had previously appeared in the Cup on three occasions for Watford LFC, contrary to the competition rules.

The League Management Committee, in accordance with League rules, has therefore determined that:-

- Reading WFC be removed from The FA WSL Continental Cup with immediate effect.
- Reading WFC do not play their scheduled final fixture on 12 July against Watford LFC and instead Watford LFC be awarded three points.
- The three points gained in the Cup fixture against London Bees on 6 July 2014 be deducted from Reading WFC's total group points.
- Reading WFC be fined £50.

Reading WFC have 14 days to appeal the decision upon receipt of the decision reasons.

£50 fine lol
3 points removed = Bees penalised as well same as Arsenal v Liverpool last year. The team that acted legally is still a looser and that's unfair.

I hope they do, we have plenty of choice and girls who could come in. I wouldn't be risking possibly losing important players in an essentially nothing game. Rachel Furness, Rachael Laws, Beth Mead to name 2 i would deffo rest. Possibly even Keira Ramshaw and the Captain Steph Bannon. They're all going to be crucial in the 2nd half of the season.

The awarding of 3 points to Watford is an interesting one. Would they have had the balls to do that if those 3 points were going to a team who were then guaranteed a semi-final place? I'm sure some of the other teams might have had something to say about that.
