Good to see such a strong starting 11 given how many are unavailable – a key change from a couple of seasons ago. Also good to see more than one defender on the becnh – a key change from a couple of weeks ago.


The previous problems of the men’s team now seems to have manifested itself in the ladies team.
Lots of possession but no cutting edge.
I cannot see them making a realistic challenge to Chelsea if this is not addressed quickly.


He said as Russo scored.
Glad to be proven wrong…
