The only woman's sport that I think it's played at a semi decent level compared to the men is tennis to be honest... maybe hockey also but no one really gives a Donald duck about hockey do they ?

Wu - respectfully disagree with that. They essentially had a 50 year ban so are playing catch-up with the men. Agree about the physical / fast part though

yes because the men of playing age had either just been killed or came back with shell shock . It was wrong to ban it but to ignore the small matter of World War One......

Women's football would be the same as it is now, and pretty much the same as every other female sport. That's not to say that women's football isn't skilful or decent to watch, but I would always rather watch the men's game which is faster and more physical. That's generally the case for most female sports which is why they suffer in comparison.

Don't think it's ridiculous to suggest that had the women's game not been fucked over, and crowds continued to grow, that'd it be that far off the men's game

Either way I don't give a fuck but was completely unaware of its original popularity until recently
Wd, When did I say used to?

I was always quite rubbish at football. I played a few games for my school (at right back) and was man of the match once but ultimately i was rubbish. I also broke someone's ankle once trying to tackle them.

Oo er missus!
Women's football was pretty big in the early 20th century. Attracted good crowds, record was 53,000. Then the FA told them to do one

I think I know the answer , you watched a Claire Balding documentary, but to come to that conclusion based on a ban nearly 100 years ago is frankly bonkers

I got a roasting once for daring to suggest I've played football at a decent level . .. what did I do? Laughed it off because the people roasting me have most likely not kicked it in their life and are also likely to be the dribblers who make no sense whatsoever at home games... why YW can't just laugh it off I have no idea... that said, I enjoy the petulant strops so long may it continue

I wonder how big women's football would be now had the FA not banned it in the 1920s. I'd assume it'd be up there with the men's game in terms of popularity

Yorkshire is a interesting phenomenon seemingly benign, but can animate some posters, and gets doing a war dance, strange curious one. If you played semi professional football, or scouted, don't mention it, or you'll get the wrath of wuppers.

you stay classy, Geoffers
Especially when they are purposefully disingenuous and say 'up next with have an exclusive interview with a Chelsea international midfielder ' and then wheel out some PE teacher from Basingstoke

What I can't stand is the way it's got a presence in every BBC football related programme under the flimsy pretence anyone who likes the game will have an interest . I don't

I don't watch but it is the FA and they do seem to be digging themselves another deep hole. Are being incompetent and insensitive requirements for a senior job in sports administration?

Controversial but does anyone really give a fuck about womans football? I know you have to be seen to pretend you do to be 'PC' and all that

I had to google Mark Sampson which goes some way to show my strength of feeling on the matter

In defence of Yorkshire Womble, some of the criticism is personal and derogatory to his skills and part time profession. I can understand why it puts his back up. That said, I absolutely agree with OI that perhaps he should take a break from the references to his scouting, as that clearly puts the backs of others up. Combine that with ignoring Dan and he's on to a winner. Personally I enjoy his posts and it all adds to the rich tapestry of WUP.

Sack Sampson and bring in Steve Evans as the new caring face of women's football...
