It's absolute nonsense comparing scoring records in the men's and women's game. You don't see people in tennis comparing the number of grand slams Serena Williams won to Nadal for example. Even the BBC were at it a while ago, saying a women's player had broken Jimmy Greaves' scoring record for England. Completely ignoring the fact that the England Women's team have scored 80 goals with none conceded in their World Cup qualifying group, including beating Latvia by a combined 30-0 home and away.

I agree, but then I also think it's nonsense comparing scoring records for countries like Australia or Japan to those in Europe or South America. Teams in Europe and SA rarely play agianst sides where scoring double figures is expected.

Its great the ladies team are helping build the fanbase, revenues, and appeal of the club - not sure if this is right but was told Lehmann's shirt is the 5th best selling at the club.

Well done to the ladies and all concerned.

That will be the worn shirt I take it?

Just hoping no club comes in with a late bid for Rachel Daly.

At last some common sense. I really like watching the top level womens game as it has improved in quality immeasurably over recent years, but it is not comparable with the mens game and to think other wise is lunacy and is insulting to the womans game. They should be judged on their own merit

I agree, despite my earlier post pointing out how close the women came to equalling the club records of the men, but then records themselves are nonsense really when comparing across different eras because the game is incomparable in so many ways now to how it was years ago.
When I was growing up the media would talk in terms of post-war records, which you don’t hear anymore but was a fairer comparison during the 60s & 70s. It wouldn’t be now though.

I really want to get to both senior games on Saturday. They don't make it easy with 1230 & 3 kickoffs. And when I factor in the aftermath of Friday's train strike it might prove undoable. I'll be putting a lot of reliance on the existence of the one train scheduled to run from Bescot to Witton between the women finishing and the men starting.

Begrudging cos of the Blose thing? Understandable. Her home record still needs a big improvement.

Not a good look for Villa and particularly the FA. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-11706813/Aston-Villa-coach-accused-sending-inappropriate-messages-young-female-players.html

I disagree, the club have done everything right over this. As soon as they were informed he was suspended, the FA were informed and his previous club were alerted. What else can they do?

Agree Paul, think the Club did everything that would be expected of them.

Today's game is live on the FA Player (web or app), if anybody fancies watching the old Manager Of The Month curse being lifted.
