I would encourage all right thinking football fans to boycott this pc bullshit of a tournament. This fucking horseshit needs to be nipped in the bud now. :roll:

You can see what's next can't you? The birds' FA Cup final in Wemberlee on cup final day. Their snoozathon display of childlike football "skilks" will kick off at 3pm while the proper game stays in its fucking arsehole TV friendly slot of 5pm. :censored:
Yep! That's exactly what will happen mate.

And then they will count the overall attendance for the day and triumphantly claim that 80,000 tickets were sold for the women's and men's cup finals :roll:
Football is being destroyed, its being turned into a fucking circus and when the masses get bored with it and move on to the next big craze, there will be no real fans left.
Rather than boycott this fucking unnecessary piece of pc shite, l’d prefer thousands of lads to turn up pished and sing “get your tits out for the lads” throughout the entire game!!
:lol: :lol: :lol:

Agree Sid .. on all points you made :D
I seen a headline yesterday with some fucker blaming her fucking period for something or other :roll:
I can just see the team news “Aga Hergerberg misses out today due to a heavy period”
Or a wreckless tackle being put down to a “ severe bout of pmt”
Its all so fucking wrong and has no place in football!
If that’s sexist then I dont give a flying fucking jamrag! :cussing:
:D

Where I work the amount of sick days some of the women take off is shocking. Of course they're never questioned about it the same way as the men are. All they really have to give as a reason is ''woman's trouble'' and no more questions are asked.

Same at my place. Then when a bloke has the audacity to take a day or two off for a sickness bug or flu they're all shit stirring about "soft sicknote men" "imagine if they had to go through what we do every month, and give birth" :roll: Do my Fucking nut in

It seems pretty ridiculous that tickets for this cost more than Europa League and League Cup games did last season.

After booking fees, it's over £30 to sit in the very back row in the upper tier. Had it been £10 stadium-wide I may have gone (to the second game only, obviously), but those prices are insane. No wonder hardly any tickets have sold so far.

Women who complain about the pain of giving birth have clearly never stood on a 3 pin plug in the middle of the night.

I'd love to be able to say I won't go but it will all depend on how my annual football cold turkey is going. If it's a sunny afternoon then I may be weak and tempted to don my nice new Adidas top and head to the bowl for a quick footy fix :oops:

I'm hoping Sid goes to help start the "get your tits out for the lads" chants.....I'd pay good money to see anybody kick that off :lol: They would bring back hanging in a heartbeat :lol: :lol:

And if you cant chant it ... you can always wear one of these t-shirts:

Or just mock this whole PC equality nonsense and do the what that (Paddy Power?) advert does and keep shouting ''man on! ...woman on! ... person on! .... PERSON ON!!''

But I prefer Sid's idea :barscarf:

its for the money. they want to build the wimmins game up to make the $$$$$

which as long as they plough that back into the mens team and reserves i have no issue with.

it always used to make me laugh that during the Highbury Years (RIP) when tickets for non STH's were like gold dust, that people would whine about not ever getting to see The Arsenal play, but our very successful (Double Winners in '98 i think ?) Ladies team and Reserves would be playing in front of one bloke and his dog.

I pointed this out to some woman who used to take her two kids and sit outside Highbury during games so they could be 'part of matchday'.

Did she take the kids to the reserves or ladies games ? nope. she wanted the first team or nothing. and that's the type that got us moved from Highbury to the bowl.

and yes i am still bitter. very.

I actually thought about attending the day with my two daughters when they mentioned a team from Lyon and Bayern Munich will be playing. Unfortunately, like that Tommy Cooper joke about finding a Stradivarius and Picasso up in his loft, Lyon's men can't play and Bayern Munich women make a crap football team.

Guarantee it will be on tv mate. The beeb will be all over the women's match. No danger of them showing the first team though :roll:
