By Tony Attwood

We’ve not been able to cover this season of the women’s game in the way that we have done in the past, and indeed there have been times when we’ve wondered if the WSL wasn’t teetering on the brink as we’ve not been the only ones who have had trouble getting information.

By Tony Attwood

The top two divisions in Spanish football, which together are known as “La Liga” have sold 10% of themselves to the private equity and credit company CVC Capital Partners.

Arsenal Women – Part one of our season end appraisal: the League

A review of the women’s league season, by Andrew Crawshaw

A season with some success but more a season of ‘might have beens’.

The final week of the season saw two games with wins over Sunderland 2 – 0 and Bristol by 6 – 1. Unfortunately Manchester City also won their final two games […]

The manager’s resigned, the league is ending. Where next for Arsenal?

At the end of this season, it finishes. It is all over. No more.

I speak of course of the FA Tesco Women’s Premier League of 12 clubs. The winner of the league will be the final winner, because that’s it. What happens between May 2010 and March 2011 I am not sure – there […]

Home and away wins – is it just a PGMO thing?

By Tony Attwood

If you are a regular reader you will know that whereas when crowds were present, the home teams in the Premier League were likely to win games more often than the away team. Since games have been played without crowds present the reverse has been true.

The explanation for this (as I’ve […]

A review of Yeovil v Arsenal Women and preview of Arsenal v West Ham on Sunday

by Andrew Crawshaw

Arsenal played their second WSL League match of the season on Wednesday Evening against Yeovil Town at Dorchester Town FC in front of a decent crowd of 1101.

When a club moves, is it “franchise football” or just a move?

By Tony Attwood

They do things differently in Women’s Football. Or do they?

Arsenal have just been knocked out of the Champions League, but have reached the FA Cup Final. Rather oddly Arsenal (the team that wins most everything in Women’s Football in England) lie sixth in the league – but then they have […]

Arsenal v Chelsea Women – opening weekend of the WSL


by Andrew Crawshaw

In an eerily familiar fashion Arsenal have been drawn against both Chelsea and Manchester City in their opening three matches of the Women’s Super League (WSL). Unlike our men though the Women will be fighting those two clubs for the title so both games are real six-pointers.

The WSL started on […]

Arsenal 99% in Europe next season; but a fan on the board is meaningless

By Bulldog Drummond

The problem with writing a preview of a European semi-final second leg is that not much has happened since the first leg. Arsenal had a fine win over a Newcastle team who spent the match looking over their shoulders, while Villareal beat Getafe 1-0. And AST have been making a noise.

Meanwhile […]
