My partner’s birthday is the 5th of December and I’ve bought her first ever Arsenal shirt as one present. What better way to celebrate than an F.A cup win over that lot!

My God! These fixtures are too tight! No real space for a breather. Thank God we don’t have to travel far for most of them.

Yeah scheduling is ridiculous 5 matches in 15 days including Chelsea in a cup final and Barcelona! No club has squad depth to deal with that intensity! That is just club games so don’t even get me started on the raft of international fixtures plonked right in the middle of the season! I know no one saw the pandemic coming and we need to squeeze in last season’s FA Cup before starting this season’s offering, but do we really need all of these European games as well? What was wrong with the previous CL format? Again it is just about… Read more »

I personally think that CL group games are the best thing that has happened to womens football in club level. So many new people to the game, so many good level games. We would have played ContiC games against London City Lionesses or smth without these. For the the development of the game, this is the absolute best what could have happened. We just have to have bigger squads in the future and invest even more in sports science.

I’m all for mainstream attention for our girls. But it does mean I won’t be able to come over for these games. I decided to get it over with and do all the tests required in the UK and coming back to The Netherlands because I didn’t want to let another membership go to waste. I’ll be at the FA cup, but Sunday evening won’t work because I’ll have to work on Monday…

I know fans from overseas are the least of their concern, just wanted to vent 😉

A lot of UK based fans can’t really make these games either, trains from a place like BorehamWood on a Sunday evening not the best and if you’ve got kids at school, it’s difficult to do. I understand why the slot exists (because no men’s football is played and it is a good time for TV audiences) but it’s a shame we’re getting it so often.

Marieke

Yeah exactly. I had tickets for the Holland game since it was in my home town. (Corona banned audiences for us now so refunded…) But I know a few people with kids who would’ve loved to go and I invited, but she couldn’t make it because it was in the evening and her kid had to go to school. Now this was an international break game, but imagine if that’s every week when you actually planned to go. Lucikly I’m a teacher so I’ve got plenty of holidays so I’ll definitely come over a few more times during those times… Read more »

Being that the match going fanbase at Meadow Park is dominated by families and children this ridiculous Sunday evening scheduling will turn back to games being played to a nearly empty stadium. Come the end of the year, out of 5 Sunday WSL games (v Everton on 10/10) to be played at MP plus 1 FA Cup semi final only ONE of the matches will have kicked off at 3pm as originally scheduled. If I was a family guy and had bought memberships for the Mrs and a couple of kids I’d be furious. What a waste of money. A… Read more »

Unfortunately TV money is worth more than your money! It is the corporate world we live in where what used to be considered spectator sports are just businesses. When I was a regular spectator at the ground, football was played Saturday afternoons and Tuesday evenings. That was it. Now it is 24/7 and the players bodyclocks are simply ignored along with the logistics of getting crowds to the matches. Stupid thing is the FA have announced they want to see crowds at women’s games multiply three-fold and then they allow this ridiculous situation to arise where fans are going to… Read more »

Thanks Tim. Really looking forward to the Barca game.
