Good draw and a guarantee that we don’t have to face Spud’s best player. Our Mitch!

We haven’t been brilliant in our last three games; to the point that the league is now out of our hands. Beating Spurs on the way to winning the cup will be some sort of redemption.

It’s all subjective but I thought we played well against Citeh in the cup semi, made a couple of basic defensive errors & missed a host of chances in the league game & showed a lot of grit last Thursday to edge passed a resilient Liverpool. Despite the injuries I feel this group will come out with a couple of trophies.

Disagree entirely. The results look disappointing but we played City off their park and should have won that game but for a couple of mistakes.

You can see “this lot” at a “big ground” on the 29th February v Chelski in the WSL Continental League Cup final kicks off 5.30pm at Nottingham Forest’s City Ground 30,000 capacity. Big enough?
Otherwise, if the girls make it through, there is always Wembley 9th May for the Womens FA Cup final. Should be a few seats available!

Well if you can get 60,000 mates together for each match I’m sure the girls would play their home games at the Emirates. Until then the Boreham Wood ground has a great pitch, look what Liverpool are expected to play on, and with the stands right at pitch side is ideal when the gate is only a couple of thousand.
Otherwise, take up Chris H’s suggestion and we’ll see you in Nottingham and Wembley!
