Non WSL UK Women’s Football / Re: 2011/12 National Division Previews

Thanks! I realised about the WSL errors once I had read through it! I did the same format for WSL so just copied and pasted those and obv didn't change it.  :-[

Next one is Charlton with Kim Dixson:

Will be following Charlton this season but, unfortunately, I will not be at the Forest game as West Ham (men's) are playing at the same time so I shall be there instead. Looking forward to seeing how they do as they certainly have the talent, hopefully they have added the belief to go with it this season.

Am currently trying to preview as many of the 10 teams in the National Div as possible. Have interviews either done or in process for half the teams, first one is below, of Watford thanks to Sahara Osborne-Ricketts.

Bit of info to pass on... Just been to watch Gillingham-Charlton friendly. Gills apparently signing Sarah Quantrill on loan from Chelsea, although it remains to be seen whether Carly Telford's injury will scupper that move or delay it a little. Becky Spencer, who was at Gills last season, wants to get some experience in the National Div this year and have heard Coventry touted as a possible destination.

Charlton confirm signing of five Millwall Lionesses: Harley Bennett, Emma Beckett, Sinead Boyer, Jordan Butler and Ellie Stenning. Have all fitted in really well so far and are looking quite promising from what I have seen

Weather was absolutely appalling and I thought it impacted on the quality of the game. Having said that it was a thoroughly enjoyable match; thought Rachel Daly was excellent both going forward and defensively and she deserved her two goals. Jodie Taylor was a threat all game as well. Not sure about Grace McCatty being named player of the match although she was certainly in the thick of the action.

Great start to Jodie Taylor's Lincoln spell, thought she looked a real threat up front. Also, I am told that Bristol approached Lucy Staniforth during the transfer window but she turned them down...

Preview for the game tonight...

Plus my Casey Stoney interview in full (starts at 19 mins 45 secs into the podcast):

Looking forward to the game tonight as it's the first I've been to since Chelsea-Arsenal so hoping it will be decent. Have to agree on the draw prediction tho

Have heard the Millwall exodus has started with Kate Longhurst and Naomi Cole joining Chelsea.

Charlton had a lot of trialists playing today against Tottenham - around four of whom played for Millwall last season (+one that didn't play but seems pretty keen to join)... not too sure what stage of their transfer they are at atm so won't divulge names just yet!

Preview to the FA Cup final from my interview with Ann-Marie Heatherson. Should be good if the previous two games are anything to go by and will certainly see better football than we have in the WSL due to the Ricoh Arena having, one would imagine, an immaculate pitch.

Haven't seen a thread about this anywhere:

Congrats to Fliss Gibbons as well. Had a great season with Charlton and has great potential... thoroughly deserved. Looking forward to seeing how she does in the National next year.

Congratulations to Cardiff who join Charlton in winning promotion to the National Division after beating Keynsham 3-0. The result also means Charlton are crowned champions so well done to both teams!!

Sunday's results:

Cardiff 3-0 Colchester
Brighton 1-1 West Ham

Charlton promoted and will be crowned champions unless Cardiff beat Keynsham by 13 goals this Sunday. Cardiff just need a point to gain promotion while Keynsham need to win by six goals to overhaul them. A win by Keynsham that is by less than six goals mean West Ham will go up.

By my maths if Charlton draw with Cardiff and Pompey win then Pompey can only catch Charlton on goal difference. Charlton's GD is 18, Pompey's is 4 and Charlton's last game of the season is against QPR (not being disrespectful to Rangers of course but Charlton will be disappointed if they don't beat them!).

They did the same last year, had an indifferent start and then didn't lose a game in the second half of the season. Essentially what has happened is that they have started scoring. If you look at the results at the start of the season they were losing by the odd goal but now they have been finding the net regularly and they know they have a superb defence behind them so they won't concede many (10 goals in 16 games so far).

I think their 0-0 draw woth QPR was the wake up call as they had about 20 shots on goal in that game and didn't score

Unbelievable result for Brighton :o don't think anyone could quite believe it!! Just back from watching Charlton comeback from a goal down to beat Gillingham 3-1. By my calculations a point will be enough to all but win the title for the Addicks, who are now five points clear at the top with the best goal diff by a mile.

At the bottom, QPR are right back in it... Gills management were desperately working out the table at the end of the game! Need a win against West Ham now which I wouldn't put past them at all

Following on from the National Div relegation battle thread, the Southern Div promotion battle is hotting up as well - top five separated by just four points. Charlton went two points clear at the top of the table. West Ham and Keynsham, who have been the top two all season, have fallen back a bit.

                   PL     PTS     GD
Charlton        15      30      16
Portsmouth    15      28       8
Keynsham      16      27       4
Cardiff           15      27       1
West Ham      15      26       9

Games Remaining

April 20 - Gillingham v Charlton, Brighton v Portsmouth
April 24 - Brighton v Keynsham, Charlton v Cardiff, QPR v Portsmouth, Yeovil v West Ham
April 26 - Charlton v QPR
April 27 - Gillingham v West Ham
May 01 - Brighton v West Ham, Cardiff v Colchester, Portsmouth v Yeovil
TBC??  - Keynsham v Cardiff - can't find whether this has been re-arranged yet

I think Charlton and Pompey will both get promoted. Pompey's run in is the easiest on paper and Charlton are on a run of six consecutive wins. In my opinion who will win the league depends on the result of the Charlton-Cardiff game - Charlton avoid defeat they are Champions, Cardiff win and Pompey may sneak it. This is all on paper though and, as we all know, anything can happen in football!

Just got back from the game, thoroughly enjoyable but a shame Arsenal couldn't do it! Thought Lyon were brilliant, could have been more than three at half time, and they were able to step off the gas in the second half a little. Tasty finish by Le Sommer for the second goal as well. For Arsenal I thought Steph Houghton looked assured at the back and Rachel Yankey did well to get a couple of assists.
