Thread: Women's World Cup

  1. #1

    Default Women's World Cup

    Have found myself watching a few games and appreciating the significant improvement in skill and fitness levels in the female game.

    I once watched a few minutes of a local women's game a few years back and the standard was less than youth level

    I played at a decent level in my youth and I wonder how the current top level of the women's game would compare with our performances.

    I think it would compare pretty favourably in many aspects although the standard of goalkeeping and heading may possibly be areas for discussion in view of the increased size and ability of men in these positions, even at amateur level.

    @Batman - Alex Scott looking delicious again. Like that red n black dress she's wearing.

    Gabby : "Phil's tinkered with his goalkeeper this week" ooh I say

    Pretty sure the original poster asked what level womenís football is compared to menís.

    Recently a study was undertaken, and a full international womenís side lost heavily to a u19 menís side.

    So yes, my contribution is very useful.

    Iíd imagine there is only one reason you watch womenís football, because you are a pervert.

    Was this an actual game as I understood the FA did not countenance mixed games

    Where did the U19 mens squad come from?

    That said I would expect a decent professional or semi professional mens team to beat an International womens team.

    I was really comparing a local mens amateur team in the comparison

    I like womenís gymnastics. Different sport to the menís gymnastics.

    Other than that, womenís elite sport is typically at the level of a good male amateur or semi-pro and, in my opinion, not particularly interesting as a spectacle. Obviously there are exceptions in less mainstream sports like ultra-marathons, free-diving etc.

    I genuinely enjoy women's hockey far more than mens at the Olympics.

    But who am I kidding.

    I’ve tried to watch it several times but It’s not for me. Games can be incredibly boring at times.

    I hope wearing huge false eyelashes doesn’t come into the mens game.

    A great example. Like women’s tennis, one watches solely for a glimpse of gusset.

    I played hockey to a reasonable level and I can assure you that a good boys u18 team would win Olympic women’s gold if they were competing.
