The FA WSL / Re: Whys is Australia producing top level coaches ?

[ 1 ]  Aside from her Australian playing/coaching experiences, Tanya Oxtoby (Bristol City )  seems to have built an English  playing/coaching CV :  player for Doncaster Rover Belles ( 2012 );  manager for  Nottingham Forest (w) (2012-2014);  director of development for Notts County Ladies ( 2016 ) ; assistant Birmingham City Ladies ( 2016 - 2018 )  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanya_Oxtoby

[ 2 ] I think Joe Montemurro ( Arsenal Women ) might have got a recommendation from Kim Little: she  was a player ( on loan ) for and he was the manager of Melbourne City women who won the Australian W-League double in 2015-2016.

[ 3 ] Australia ( the Matildas ) are currently ranked 8th in the world and were ranked as high as 4rth in 2017. The Australian W-League (the top flight domestic women's league )  is eleven years old and went full professional last year with an average player salary of A$ 15 500 - A$ 17 400.  The Australian W-League is a short 12-round competition plus playoffs  but because of the good climate, the  Australian women can play football all year round. After W-League season ends,  top Australian players go abroad and play in other top women's leagues -- primarily the USA and Norway. While rank-and-file W-League players who do not go abroad play in tier two amateur/semi-pro state leagues.

[ 4  ] Seen a rumour that  Sam Kerr ( the world-class  Australian striker ) might not be going back to Australia after the NWSL ( USA ) season is over.( She is currently the NWSL leading goal scorer. )   PSG feminines is the stronger  rumour but an England side may have expressed some interest in her.

Belgium 2 England 1
Belgium 0 England 1

Heard for the u14s upwards each team will play 3 games before the season to determine what tier they’ll go into (3 tiers)

Anybody else hear the same?

Minor observation
So is the touch of Daly so poor that her second touch is a tackle , or is it that Bright just smashes the ball when passing with no consideration of weight or the receiver.
The latter is a symptom of the play it fast and worry about accuracy taught  by some coaches in the underage setups.
