We lost an entertaining game 2-1. City had some swagger about them and knocked it around well and were good value for the 2- 0 half time lead.
2nd half we upped the tempo and the game became more end to end. Archer went off and the replacement caused them a lot of problems. We hit the post after a good move and then scored a fine individual goal but it came a tad too late.

For £3 It was a decent game and in a stadium that would put a few league 1 & 2 grounds to shame.

Incredible how the entire area has been developed.

Chelsea looked very well drilled and their new signing Kerr has a good touch . Our ladies can hold their heads high having battled hard. It was mighty cold tonight and my face has only just thawed out

Perhaps they didn't, as they had three good chances to score in the FH -and failed with all of them.

They also hit the bar in the SH and missed yet another 1-on-1 near the end.

Eniola Aluko appointed sporting director of the women’s team. As a seasoned connoisseur of black women, all I can really contribute to the debate is that she’s got a really bad weave for someone who appears on telly and who I would imagine is quite well off.

Seems like the women are really going for it, on and off the pitch. Hope they can finish the job and get promoted.

Who gives a fig about her appearance ? Surely her competence for the job doesn't hinge on her bad hair days.

Agreed. Like I said, not knowing if she’s any good or not it’s all I can add. It is surprising though. Black female hair is notoriously expensive to look after well and all the ones I know who can afford it pay a fortune to do so. It’s a bit like Dr Tony’s shoes, but I spend my life almost exclusively around black women rather than white men and they talk about hair a lot. Sorry.

Good for you cd. My wife’s direct debit for her hairdresser is the third biggest bill after childcare then the mortgage, and in hard times every economy has been considered and discussed except that one. I’m just saying that’s obviously not the case in the Aluko household.
