Fwiw, Ellen Smith is miles better than I ever was

Whilst at Uni, many moons ago obviously ... y'know, when getting in was a challenge ... we were sponsored by Adidas who asked us to play a touring USA Wimminz team and an England team.

We were dubious. Win & it'd be "so you should", lose and well, it doesn't bear thinking of. But we agreed.

It was 5 or 6 nil to us at half-time v the Yanks. There were wobbly chins and complaints we were being over physical.  I heard "not fair" quite a lot too. Our coach asked us to turn it down a bit ... f'cough was the reply. He used about 8 subs too. I don't recall the final score ... it was a lot. 

The England team remembered they had to be somewhere else, so that was cancelled.

 

Now, I stress it was ages ago & standards HAVE improved but still ...

Its only a matter of time before MOTD is renamed Mens MOTD or MOTD (Men).

Or they will just have men's and women's games on alternately so that they can tick that box and keep the same name.

I had a read of the Forest message board earlier, mainly to find out what type of manager they are after and their views on how the club is run, Clough managed Forest longer than their last 26 managers!! 

Fucking mental that lot, it's gonna take them to the depths of were we have been to realise how shit they are, they think they can tempt the fella Cooper from Swansea, I'd be surprised if any progressive manager wants to join that basket place of a club, I would love to be playing these tomorrow...

...and thank fuck Shazza made the right call in appointing Ian Evatt.

You know every time there is a sacking then Evatt's name is going to be in the frame.

I have been long of the opinion that modern managers should be included in the transfer window

Just seems to me that one club men are becoming a rarity, Benitez being a case in point and our own dear Sam,

Maybe they should have their own transfer window between the players' window.

How would it work you can only sack in the window and sign a new manger in the window?

Just another way for clubs higher up the pyramid to destabilise lower league clubs and fleece their best talent.  The system is imbalanced enough so thanks but no thanks.
