Welcome to a brand new episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, the number one podcast about Arsenal Women.
For this month’s episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast Tim is joined by The Athletic’s Women’s Football Correspondent Katie Whyatt. They chat a little about Katie’s path to becoming one of the only full-time women’s football correspondents in the country, then they get into some big ticket topics around inequality between teams in the WSL- is it avoidable? Does it matter? Is the WSL now on an untroubled path to becoming a mirror image of the Premier League? And what about some of the revered women’s football clubs that haven’t been able to keep pace with the WSL’s march to professionalism? Could we even have a European Super League or transatlantic tournament in women’s football one day? Tim and Katie discuss.
Katie wrote a piece on inequality in the WSL which you can read here – if you are a subscriber to The Athletic.

If you are a regular listener via iTunes, if you would be so kind as to leave a review/rating that would be greatly appreciated.
Brilliant stuff, as usual!
Thanks Tim & Katie. A great insight. My football interest was on the wane before being refreshed when I started following AWFC 5 years ago. So not looking forward to seeing the WSL follow the path of the Premiership which seems increasingly likely.
V interesting, Tim and Katie.
The lopsidedness isn’t helped by the absence of transfer fees – they bring their own problems of course, but it is one way of redistributing wealth.
It’s so sad that so many clubs which invested in women’s football over the years before it was fashionable are going to fall by the wayside.
