I take that on board but surely if Anderson was a truly world class player like Smith- the world would have been aware of her..... I can't comment really as no ever seen her play so not dismissing her but is there a parallel in the men's game ?

I think this is the point. I think things are changing, but I guess its down to opportunity, perhaps even being in the right place. 

Do I think Katie is better than Kelly? Nah that would be daft but, and this is a big but, I will honestly say that she is possibly the single most gifted female player that Ive ever seen. The whole point, I was trying to make, is that its about being given that opportunity, being at arsenal helped Kelly, immensley. Thats a positive.  Possibly being based in the North meant the opportinities werent quite as forthcoming.

I remember reading here, Arsenal tried to sign her but she was not interested.

so England missed the opportunity to have 2 World Class players in their team due to one reason or another - wonder how many others slipped through the net......any takers?

loads, and they still do, most are injured for years, the lucky ones only get 2 acl injuries in their career.

well the wsl are high profile so everyone should know them, also, if you are attached to a club you should know of cases where people have "bad knees" http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/11/12/us-acl-injuries-most-common-idUSBRE9AB16E20131112        http://www.livestrong.com/article/548782-statistics-on-acl-injuries-in-athletes/     

studies show that women atheletes including footballers are a a much higher risk.

we are not just talking injuries here but about world class players who because of their location in the country didn't quite make it. Beginning to think there are no such players.
