    Women’s World Cup

    I cannot believe that the women are complaining about the fact that there is a huge difference between the prize money for the men winning the World Cup and that for the women.

    Solo Hope, USA World Cup winner, says the disparity shows that ‘male chauvinism is entrenched in Fifa’. What a load of tosh. The amount of money they are getting is huge compared to many other sports. They are getting a massive coverage on tv and in my opinion the standard is at best pretty poor.

    Am I just being a male chauvinist or do others think they are being hard done by?

    When they can generate the finances and the interest that the male game can, then fair enough, but not until.
    To be honest I have little or no interest myself.

    If you want to start bringing equality into football...you should certainly start with reducing the amount male players get for the weekly dross they produce...It has to be one of the most over rated up their own asses industry ever.....
    It is totally obscene and can not be justified. Most sports are nowadays.........

    Sorry BBC despite what you are regularly telling me I just do not have the slightest interest in the Women's World Cup. This is no reflection on me as a person. It is just a fact.

    Why don’t the women’s national team play the men’s national team and see how equal they are, that should sort it!

    Or you could have the men and women teams playing in a World Cup.

    Draw men and women together and then we will see how long before a women’s national side wins the World Cup.

    It could be a very long wait.

    Id be very worried though just in case the England birds did beat the England blokes, we'd never hear the last of it.

    Don't think there would be much in it! The men play like girls anyway, especially Dele Ali who is a horrible t wat!

    I am afraid I find women's football embarrassing to watch. The goalkeepers must all have been hatched from a Scottish egg and sperm as they are so bad. A cross somewhere between Jim Herriott (for our older posters) and Paul Crichton at the end of their careers. As for demanding parity with men, I am with Dubbag and would rather the men's money be reduced to what the women earn as there aint any footballer in the past or present or future deserving of £5,000 a week for kicking a ball about let alone £50,000-£500,000. Gayle kicked the ball into net 22 times for us and earned £220,000 a month for it and he is near the bottom of Premiership wage earners. Its bloody obscene.

    When he occasionally does summat right for us/England, Im ok with him. But I agree the rest of the time Dele Alli comes across as somebody who is desperate for a smack in the face, and hes had no takers so far!.

    Sam Johnstone must have been hatched from a Scottish egg too therefore! As for some of the girl players - they are better by a country mile than HRK and can control the ball a hundred times better than Burke!

    Also many of the girls have far more energy than Livermore who ( poor t wat ) is always so so tired! None of the young girls either have great big egos or heads like Berahino and Berahino ( mark 2 ) Harper who has proved f uckall to me apart from having some talent but also at a young age - up his arse!

    The England girls team are also managed by someone who has been there and worn the t shirt! Shan probably wore the t shirt with his experience with the academy! Still no decent manager for feck sake!!!

    Lai out! We also have a couple of c unts called Dowling and Jenkins who want to interview every manager in the UK and most likely will turn back to Appleton or Shan! We are a laughing stock and far more embarrassing than a girls team.

    In the pub last night a mate was saying that he could see the day when women would beat men at football. I said i have never been a gambler but i would happily take that bet.
    Nothing to do about me being chauvinistic or that women of less ability, it's about the physical strength of the species. A good big un is better than a gud little un.

    Just had a look through some of the women's squads for the World Cup.

    Crikey there's some right hippocrocagorrillapigs.

    Click onto the link for the Thai team, there's definitely more cocks than hens in that lot .

    or you have to pay equal amounts to watch.

    Minimum of £76 to watch Euro 2020 mens semi (and probably won't be England) and over £800 (wtf) for a Cat 1 Final Ticket. They will all go.
    Cost of ticket to watch 'The Lionesses' in the WC £12. There will be loads of empty seats. Equality my @rse.

    Thought id take a look at the England game against Argie. 35 mins gone and an Argie player commits a foul by attempting to pull down the England players shorts. 43 mins gone and an Argie player as gone down with cramp. Several of the so called players are having trouble adjusting their hairbands.

    What I don't understand is that we are now in June, the height of the cricket season, yet on the news, especially the BBC, no surprise there, the women's football takes preference over the men's World Cup Cricket competition. On some news reports they've not even mentioned the cricket! I would have thought that the majority of viewers are more interested in men's cricket than the women's football team. I certainly am. Another example of the media 'pushing' minority interest over that of the mainstream.
