I hear Phil Neville and some of the ''lionesses'' were in the Royal box on centre court at Wimbledon yesterday. They only got to the semi final ffs! :banghead:

And what happened to Neville's big talk about how anything less than winning would be failure? Now he's swanning about like he's a fucking national treasure. Fuck off you long faced fucker!

Unfortunately for anyone thinking this is the end of the women's sport and the Neville's for a few weeks at least ... brace yourself for the Netball world cup starting on BBC next week where England will be led by Tracy Neville (who I actually think is Gary in a wig and a dress).

I still chuckle every time I think of the England defender Millie Bright lumbering around during the WWC.
I was never quite sure if she was playing or grazing ,like a diplodocus ,I think we should be told !
Phill Neville was pure comedy Gold ,I've never seen him so animated ,it was almost like he had to oversell it or he would start laughing .
He was also a tad too touchy feely ,creepily putting his arms round the sweaty beasts at any given moment !

Apparently some bird made a tea drinking celebration or whatever to mock England. I look forward to the septics finding someone doing a high school shooting celebration against them equally as funny.
To be fair, it was the day before 4th July Independence Day, and as celebrations go, quite tame.

These women don’t like it up em do they ( well according to the survey 25 % to 50 % don’t ) :wink:
Don't worry it wasn't lost on me,on July I wore a white t shirt with great Britain on it when I lived in the USA on July 4th in a Bar on Long Island (sag harbor) when the septics saw me laughing and joking they asked me why and I responded "We celebrate this day as much if not more than you do " ………………...whoooosh right over their heads !
Problem with American History is that a lot of it simply isn't true including the crap written bout the tea party and the cause of the American civil war which had fuck all to do with Lincoln wanting to free the slaves and everything to do with federal taxation !

to be honest the forwards and midfielders of the top 5 or 6 teams in the chicks game are better technically than the MLS or the Championship, in terms of their first touch, ball control and weighted/ curled passes etc.

defensively all the teams were a bit pants, and the game is a bit slower but i thought it was a good watch mostly.
That's a pretty fair summing up imo. I too have enjoyed women's football for a few years now and am pleased they got more media coverage in this tournament.
I think the highlight for me was Lucy Bronze's goal against Norway.

Took my daughters to watch the netball world cup in Liverpool a couple of weeks ago. I was really surprised at the pace of the game. Watche Jamaica vs Malawi and the Jamaicans movement and pattern of play reminded me of the Invincible team, pass and move, diagonal one touch passing. I didn't get bored once. Also saw probably the tallest woman I;ve ever seen walking [ast us in the concourse. At least 6ft 7in, i'm talking Peter Crouch gangly tall. Just thought of that scene in Deuce Bigalow, where he's on a date with a very tall woman.

How about American Women demanding equal pay to men's?! The USA men's is shite, and Women are strong but simple fact still remains that the men's team drive more revenue.... Am I being a rude ass*ole?!

Nope you are not. :wink: When the wider women's game can generate the same revenue as the men's game then fine they deserve equal pay but right now? No way do they deserve equal pay.
