    If you watched USA slam Thailand tonight you may change your mind Idle
    Although Thai weren't up to much I would put money on the Americans beating our team from last season they were technically better and had the will to win sadly lacking in our team

    Someone's got out the wrong side of the bed !!!!
    My point was that USA are a well organized side with skill attacking flair and a winning mentality they would be a match for most L2 sides and one in particular side that finished bottom of L1 last season
    If that's an abysmal standard how would you describe our performances last season

    Doubt I would change my mind Steve. Not many neutrals would enjoy such a mismatch. As for the Americans beating us, no, not having that, no matter how poor we were last season, no women's team would be able to physically compete with a men's professional team

    Not all games are won with physicality watch the style of play it was quite refreshing after last seasons dross well organized and always looking for more goals I grant you the opposition were poor but the attitude shown put us to shame

    To be fair, from what I read and hear from others who have watched so far, the attitude of the women is first class. I;ve seen some technically good goals on sports news highlights, but the defending and goalkeeping looks woeful

    Can't disagree with that
    If you get the chance just watch the second half and tell me how happy you would be if we put in a comparable performance next season

    Not having that.

    They were playing a team who were part time and made to look a lot better than they were. At best it’s conference north standard all around.

    It’s ok though. It deserves to be on tv as it’s a World Cup but that doesn’t take away from the fact the standard is shocking.

    And on another note I’d be checking with betting companies because that Thailand goalie last night? Part time and was diving past the ball as it went in for most of them.

    When there is such a physical mismatch then yes they are. This US team lost to Dallas F.C's U15 team a couple of years ago. There is a reason why boys and girls split from mixed teams to single gender teams at u12 level and that's because physically that's around when boys start to become much stronger and hence quicker than girls

    That's being unfair on the conference north. As I mentioned above a couple of years ago the US team which wasn't that different to the team that played yesterday lost 5-2 to the u15's team of Dallas FC. Now the senior MLS teams are hardly the highest quality (There are bit-part players in League1/2 teams that have gone over there and become key players) let alone the u15's. The level is at best schoolboy level

    I enjoyed the England v Scotland game and expect to watch a few more matches in this world cup.

    As others have pointed out, because of the physical differences, it is somewhat unfair to compare the men's and women's games, better to just treat them as separate sports in their own right, to be enjoyed or not as everyone feels fit.

    There is one significant change I would make, however, and that is to convert the 'men's' game to an 'open' one, thus allowing women access to what is currently the men's game. I am not expecting to see women make the Premier League or Football League, certainly not in my lifetime, but they should have the right, should they be good enough.

    Let lack of technical ability or physical strength stop them (from playing at Premier League or Football League level), but not gender.

    Just caught a glimpse of Phil Neville being interviewed ahead of England’s game against Argentina.

    ‘It’ll be tough and physical, they’ll have man to man marking’.

    Erm......

    It’s hard to compare but I don’t think a single one of them would last 2 mins in league 2. I’d back most u15 academy sides to beat the women’s national side.
