The Scotland women's team is much like the men's: workmanlike, dull and basically a bit shit.

England teams never seem to go for the jugular and finish teams off do they?  We always seem to end up hanging on.

I had England to beat Scotland 3-1. I can now add losing at betting on women's football to my CV.

Is it just me or has the standard of football generally been piss poor so far? I thought the woman’s game had progressed but it seems to be much worse than the last World Cup.

I really want to like it, and have tickets to the England game on Friday, so that my daughter might get into football more easily and also so I don't feel like a terrible misogynist when forced to confront the obvious truth that the standard is absolute pish.

The matches so far have reminded me of schoolboy internationals, half-empty stadiums, mostly filled by schoolkids / family, and with only maybe 2-3 players on the park capable of anything of interest, just much more slowly than you are used to seeing. I desperately hope the game on Friday is different, but don't expect so. Though I think it will be a lot better at the QF / SF stages.

Yep USA are so good. Struggling to think of a bigger mismatch than this game in recent memory.
