Dual signings are possible as well as loans. Some players get actually loaned to higher divisions teams.

I am not sure minors get offered pro contracts : recently Lauren Hemp and Esme Morgan signed for City but they had to wait until they were 18.

Went to England v France today. Game not advertised at all, despite being open to the public. Still 120 spectators, not bad at all.

Typical France v England game, two teams with opposite style makes it very entertaining.

Moving onto national Camp passing.
The Coaches explain they  don't worry about accuracy just playing fast.
No doubt the shooting is just about kicking all the air out of the ball.
Who is this coach ?  >:(

Well done on this season achievements.
No wonder emma hayes doesn't want to be seen as a role model with the football they displayed at Bristol.
The game standard wasn't any different to a county cup game between a wpl team and county team i watched recently.
to further the game , the difference between the international/pros and amateurs needs to be greater.
Your local teams are really good, the county tams I Watch are nowhere near WSL level, the best FA WPL Southern teams are closer of course.

So how many national players can play in the tight?
As many as you like really... it does not mean they are selected by Phil Neville

The other  type of player that is selected is the one that plays like a 9 year old, i.e. runs to opposition goal with the ball every time even from their own pen area.
When they get to senior football there isn't the space and so all that time "developing " is wasted, hence why england couldn't break down wales.
Skill and game sense are not the attributes talent scouts at the FA look for and want develop despite all the DNA malarky .
I don't see many English players with those characteristics at international level ??

As it gets to the older age groups 16's onwards etc I have heard that it is a lot more click and harder to get into due to the fa refusing to acknowledge that some players may develop post 16 !
A good number go through, but they actually open more at u19/u23 and senior level...

players get looked at at u13 for u14 camps,
if you play for rtc that is a bit week and you are used to shore up defence and slightly taller then you will be always be talent identified as a defender regardless of your technical qualities for the next few years they look at you just for that position rather than getting the best players , FA COAching talent id not much better than soccer mums despite the a/b licence certificate
Disagree, soccer mums don't know what a defensive block is in general  ;)

It is not compulsory at all. Hayley Ladd at Arsenal was not part of the academy, as she was going to her local school and was playing for the Arsenal reserves at the time.
It is up to the clubs to advise the players though.

Chris Henderson, an American podcaster,  provides some inSTAT data w/ comments about England players  via a series of tweets:

- Newly recalled England CB Anita Asante's stats in 2-2 draw vs Man City on Saturday:
88% actions successful
88% passes completed
2 key passes
76% challenges won
5/5 aerial challenges won
4/4 tackles won
15 ball recoveries

-England have been hit by the absence of Steph Houghton, Jordan Nobbs, and Karen Carney, forcing some late call-ups/replacements.
-In goal, Siobhan Chamberlain has featured most recently over Karen Bardsley, but the pair's form according to inStat has been pretty even.

-On the backline, England face major questions at center-back. Millie Bright, in strong form over the past year looks to fill one spot, but Neville likely chooses between recent recall Anita Asante and the relatively unproven Gabrielle George & Abbie McManus for the other slot.

-There are fewer worries out wide, where right-back Lucy Bronze is one of the world's best, while Neville can choose between Alex Greenwood and Demi Stokes to fill the other spot, both strong options.

-In midfield, Jill Scott looks a sure option on form, with Isobel Christiansen and Keira Walsh also having impressed over the last calendar year. Young marvel Georgia Stanway is one to watch, but there are concerns over Fara Williams' declining form.

-Up top, England are spoilt for choice, with Toni Duggan, Fran Kirby, and Nikita Parris having impressed the past year. NWSL'ers Rachel Daly and Jodie Taylor are fine options in depth.

-Summing it up for England? With major hits in depth and a new manager, they look the least of a strong SBC field.
They look likeliest for the bottom of the table but have enough quality up top to pull a surprise.

-Here's some key inStat numbers for England:

Top Rated Overall for 2017-18:
1. Lucy Bronze
2. Alex Greenwood
3. Toni Duggan
4. Fran Kirby
5. Nikita Parris

-Most successful total actions:

88% - Anita Asante

Highest Pass Completion:

89% - Asante

Most Key Passes Per Game:

1.50 - Alex Greenwood

Highest Cross % by a Wide Player:

37% - Nikita Parris

Highest Challenge %

77% - Millie Bright

-And finally, Highest Aerial Challenge %

79% - Millie Bright


Number of Parris dive per game ?

England International Football / Re: SheBelieves Cup 2018

[ 1 ]  Reading a lot of angst and anger directed at Diacre ( the manager for Les Bleues ) for her She Believes roster selection -- a lot of unhappiness about specific player omissions.  And lots of  doom and gloom about France's prospects in the 2018 She Believes Cup and the 2019 WWC France.  It's worth noting that France  has six results and only one  loss in their last seven  fixtures! Additionally,  when one removes the bad loss to Germany (Nov 2017)  , France have only conceded 3 goals out of  6 fixtures.  It's not all bad news here, France are defending well and generally keeping the ball out of the net.

[ 2 ] Given that the French women's national team have an unfortunate  reputation for folding under pressure, it's a little bit interesting that  France are  hosting next year's WWC  where the pressure of playing at home in front of friends and family could be higher than anything that they have ever experienced before!

[ 3 ]  If French central defender Laura Georges starts for France in the She Believes opener, then England shoud have a go at her ( over her, around her, through  her, behind her-- whatever ). Laura Georges is old , slow and vunerable.
The French fans always moan when their favourite players are not selected, it is club team driven...
