    Really depends, the top players technically are very good but then there is a massive drop off. A men's team would batter them I believe the U.S. national team lost to some u18's before, the same way that Serena and Venus lost to some lower level men's tennis pro. The physicality can't be compensated for. Technique wise the top women players are no worse then professional men, and because of the lack of 'pace and power' you get a lot more passing through the pitch. As time goes by I'd expect the levels between woman footballers to even out, a lot of the disparity now is down to the financial side of the game.

    The biggest thing that lets the game down still is the keepers, it's like the still just put the worst outfield player in goal, they should be scouting netball and basketball players and training them up. The suggestions for a smaller pitch and goals I think would massively improve the women's game but there is a lot of resistance against it, much to do with 'equality' and being seen to be able to hold their own vs the men's game.

    The major problem for me is Tottenham have white labelled a team that in my mind are not good enough to carry the name just because its seen to be the thing to do.

    They've worked their way up through 2/3 divisions to get where they are, organic growth much like the men's team. They deserve to be where they are, they've been pro a much shorter time than many of the top women's teams.

    Last season they held their own in the top flight, not quite sure what's going wrong this year so far, but the opening games were all against the top established teams.

    Levy's never been able to sack two managers in one day before, bet he can't wait.

    Going from the one match I saw at NWHL last season, against the Lady Goons, that Neville likes a thumping slide tackle. Proper filth. I liked it.

    I don't give a stuff about ladies footy but it will be interesting to see who the next coach will be......perhaps Mr Sherwood would fancy it?

    Jill Ellis got moved upstairs after winning the WC last year. I wonder if we could tempt her back to coaching
