USA Women's Football / Re: Philadelphia Independence

The finishing was awful but to be fair they have been finishing well earlier in the season thanks to A-Rod :)
Also they made a lot more chances, Freedom didnt seem to know how to link up with Abby & hardly ever got through on goal.
Philly well deserved to go through & to enjoy being beaten by the Breakers this thursday :D

Agreed it was a foul because the goal keeper got there 1st but, it should then just be a free kick not a yellow card as Jill didn't intend to hurt the keeper, from what I re-call she did try to pull out once she realised she wasn't going to get the ball, also the keeper didn't complain either, surely that says it all.

In my opininion it was a 'normal challenge' and therefore didnt merit a yellow card. I dont think Jill intended to hurt the goalie, I thought she had a right to slide in for the ball. Unfortunately the goalie beat her to it & they clattered into each other just like any other 50 50 tackle on the pitch.

She definitely would have been expected to go for that ball, I thought there was nothing wrong with it & definitely not a yellow card

Id like Vic but yeah its not going to happen.
Not so keen on Mo after seeing a few of her international games recently, not attacking enough in my opinion.
Boanas possibility
Maybe we have to wait for womens football popularity to grow in our country before we get to pick a greater manager.

Also this is what Lianne wrote after the England Spain game in July
'sometimes in life you make decisions and live with regret and the consequences,but when you no your right its intirally justified,sometimes you got to no when enough is enough and i did!yes its never going to be easy,but people cant think its ok to treat people so bad and get away with it!'

I shouldnt think Asante is being dropped, surely its more to do with her not having much game time since her injury.
Or does this guy know inside information as Asante is good friends with Lianne, maybe she holds something against Hope for playing her injured as this guy is implying - another relationship break down with the manager?

Drama in the england camp!
I wonder if we're going to get more of this as women's football gets bigger in our country.
Poor Lianne, it sounds like she's had a hard time but then again maybe shes been hard to manage? But she seemed to be managed ok at arsenal, chelsea & philly

You've got to be gutted if you were a Lincoln winger seeing the new signings

So sad  :( we had just made contact through facebook and I was looking forward to meeting him one day

Also isn't the idea of a summer league to try and give the football fans a game to go to whilst the men are on a break?!
Understandably if you want to go to a football game in England you're going to go to a men's game as the support, fans and atmosphere are already there, the women's game doesn't have a chance competing against the men. By playing in the summer it gives a chance for more potential viewers of the game and hopefully an increase in popularity.
Thats my positive outlook on it anyway  ;D

And I guess the FA had to have a rigorous process for choosing the final 8 because of past history in women's teams falling apart from a lack of financial backing, there's no point in them backing something unless they're sure the teams are definitely going to be in it for the duration of the league.

Everton : hobbs, easton, whelan, johnson, unitt, williams, scott, hinnigan, handley, dowie, duggan subs harries westwood chaplen
Chelsea : chamberlain, champ, hills, davies, perry, susi, spence, stoney, rafferty, jane, heatherson subs buet kempson

Hope Powell was at the game, I wonder what she thought about Dowie excellent performance in her all round play and clinical finishing. Probably the same as when Sanderson was scoring more than 120 goals in 3 season, not good enough lol.

Where was Hope Powell?! I didnt see her.
Dowie did look good, hopefully she'll get given some more chances in some friendlies soon, we need a good striker.

A big thank you to those who have kindly passed Lincoln their congratulations! Your kind words are much appreciated!  :)

We will be looking to bring players into the squad, there's no doubt about that. We have players who are good enough to compete in this elite league, however, for those who are interested, if I were you I would watch this space very carefully for some big surprises  ;)

With the televising of this league, and with it being in summer, I anticipate this to be a great success - we'll give it our best shot anyway  :)

When can transfers of players start taking place?

Ahhh! I've just had a look and there's a + sign in the corner by the time, I've pressed it and the links have appeared again - hooray!!  :D

Now I've just got to work out how to get it make on my mobile internet.

Thanks everyone, I just assumed it had vanished as a strange web page update, now I can go back to easy forum viewing   ;D

Hi, where has that magic button gone that used to be at the top of the forum main page that let you know what new posts had appeared since your last visit?!!
I loved that button, it made forum life so easy!  ;D

Can't wait to see the games on tv  :) there may be a lot of negativity about the summer league but at least the women's game is getting noticed & it has to be a step forward even if it seems to be such a shambles.

Now we have the excitement of finding what teams are involved out of the way, when do the clubs start nicking players from the likes of Leeds and Sunderland?!  ;D

There will be disquiet as well as delight when the Football Association reveals the identities of the new Super League's eight founder members tomorrow. The Northern Division club OOH Lincoln will be the surprise name as one of two regional division teams while there is no place for the top-flight teams Nottingham Forest, Sunderland and Millwall.

"When you are launching a new product," said Forest's chief executive, Mark Arthur, "you should surely include the biggest brands." Forest are certainly a bigger brand than their neighbours Lincoln but it will be the lower league team that steps up to the elite level next March alongside their Northern Division rivals Liverpool and the Premier League sides Arsenal, Birmingham City, Bristol Academy, Chelsea, Doncaster Belles and Everton.

"We may be a small name but we're a big club," claimed the Lincoln chairman, Geoff Adams, having met Super League membership criteria that stretched beyond playing strengths and facilities. To meet the FA's demands on sustainability and growth, the 16 bidding clubs also had to prove their business and management capabilities plus commercial and marketing expertise.

"Financially and structurally," added Adams, "we're stronger than most, if not all of the other clubs involved. And we're not going into the league to make up the numbers. We are in it to win it."

A disgruntled Arthur, whose club's City Ground will in May host the FA Cup final for the third time in four years, said: "The application and decision-making processes were not satisfactory. We've done so much for the women's game in recent years, yet we weren't even granted an interview to explain our submission."

In the Premier League yesterday Everton climbed to third place with a 5-2 win against Chelsea. Leeds beat Millwall 4-0 and Blackburn won 1-0 at Bristol.

Pheeww - made it! Now lets play some football  ;D

Congratulations! ;D
