    Women presenters and pundits.

    I've nothing against women presenters but it's getting to the stage now where they are outnumbering the men. With the greatest respect, I don't feel that they are have the knowledge or the experience of many of the ex-players. They haven't experienced playing at the highest level and the prestigious games that many of the ex-players have been involved in. Don't get me wrong, some of them are good presenters but it should be left at that, presenting and not punditry. This may sound chauvenistic but it isn't meant to be, to my mind it's just common sense.

    Just wait until the first prominent player to come out as a “shirt lifter” appears and the punditry will be taken over by the “LBGT” lot.

    Personally I prefer a “BEST” ( bacon,egg,sausage and tomato)

    It’s becoming unfashionable to be “straight”.

    I’m feeling marginalised.......I think I need to start a movement and have a day in celebration.

    It's a sign of the times that you make good point in a reasonable manner yet still feel it necessary to apologize for possibly sounding
    chauvinistic. Sad indication of where we have got to.

    Your right there Mick! Even the Virgin Atlantic aircraft now have shirt lifters on it in addition to pretty girls, as the Virgin Board feel that they are representing all walks of life!

    Pink balls soon and separate changing rooms. Can you imagine that w anker Jenkins investing in an additional changing room for a gay ref

    Have you considered being gender neutral, you could pick and choose at will.

    I wear a T shirt that states There Are Only Two Genders. Nobody over the age forty even bothers to look but I have had some interesting comments and looks from the under 30 snowflake brigade. I will probably get arrested for hate speech or some jumped up bullsh*t offence.

    To be fair mate I ay but I know more than Paul Ince.
    That female commentator the Beeb have. It just doesn't work does it?
    As for women's football. What a piss poor standard that is. Nothing at all to do with the fact women are playing it. It is just atrocious.

    Women goalies are about the same standard as male keepers were in the 1920’s......diving over and around the ball!

    Everything about the female game is too slow.....even the shirt swopping.

    No, surely the longer the shirt swapping takes the better. Although looking at some of the tattooed monstrosities that play the game I'm not so sure!

    Sooner have a woman goalie than that useless excuse for a keeper Johnstone!! At least women are natural when keeping their legs wide open 😂

    Most of them are “rug munchers” Woodlands.

    Same with the hockey players,two of the Olympic gold medalists are “married”.

    I get civil partnerships but I don’t get the marrying bit.

    How can you both be the “husband” or both be the “wife”?

    We all know that in each partnership one is male dominant and the “giver” and one is feminine and the “receiver”.

    It’s always pretty obvious which male is the one doing the receiving so why is he not referred to as the “wife”...?



    Not that I’m that interested.



    Just asking for a friend!

    On a good day, say a final of sorts , the average attendance at a womens football game is about 2000, apparently. But take away close friends, family members, staff, the professionally coerced (sports reporters etc) who are all there on free tickets then the natural attendance at these games is about that of a car boot sale on a wet Sunday morning. Says it all really. I watched one once and the quality was below that of middle aged, beer bellied pub team.

    What makes me laugh is one has always got short back and sides, dresses like a bloke and looks like a bloke. Which kind of contradicts why a lesbian would find them attractive in the first place.

    Wow, you really do know how to call a spade a spade dont you uncle Mick lol.
    And hey thats not an offensive comment in anyway btw, it simply means a poster is being very honest and likes to tell it as it is etc!.

    We're opening up a can of fishy worms here arent we Mick & co, and it really pees me off these days to see and hear so many wimmin presenters and pundits and reporters and interviewers etc. Some of them are fine and I like them, and no of course I wouldnt say no to a night out with Gabby Yorath etc, or even that younger posh bird on sky Bianca Westwood.

    Its that Vickie Sparks commentator bird on the Beeb though who really pees me off, she tries to screech and shout and sound like a bloke, but its awful and she just comes across as annoying!.

    Added to the fact they use a false 12 inch black c o c k!

    Why not just go out and find one with some actual blood and thick semolina flowing through it!?

    I remember when womens cricketers wore little skirts as opposed to trousers etc. I was always one of the first to offer my umpiring services, it was interesting standing at square leg when they shaped up to face the bowler.
