Absolutely amazing! I’m also stunned and delighted to hear about the Team and Coach awards for the Lionesses and Sarina Wiegman.
Congratulations, Beth. I hope it makes your recovery a little easier.

Congratulations Beth. Another well deserved accolade to add to her 2022 haul. Great year for her, Arsenal and the Lionesses.


Huge congratulations to our Meado! Well deserved ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ‘


Seriously, who is the utter Twat downvoting these posts?

You sad sad individual. ๐Ÿ˜ž


Probably the same twat who has dozens of identities on BBC sport harping on about “woke” and “political correctness”.

Horse breath

Itโ€™s full of them. Theyโ€™re scared of successful female sport people, but too cowardly to use their real name.


Probably some trolling jerk from that title-averse lot across town. How do I know? Once in a while (especially when they’ve just lost) I pop into one of their sites to take the mickey.


Big well done to Beth Mead, only just got into women’s football but based on what I’ve seen this is very well deserved!

Horse breath

Deserves it legend.
