• Germany beat Sweden 2-1 in Olympic final!

    Rio de Janeiro must be a lucky place for the Germans or something because the women’s side dethroned the US by beating Sweden 2-1 and becoming the the Olympic champions! Neither Germany or Sweden have ever reached an Olympic final before.

    In this game Sweden weren’t so overly defensive and actually took risks and was on the attack… 9 minutes in Sweden had their first chance from a sharp corner from Lotta Schelin but Olivia Schough couldn’t get it in the net.

    Swedens new proactive tactics did leave them wanting defensively and Germany were able to exploit these new holes in the Swedish defence with plenty of their own chance.

    Dzsenifer Marozsan then managed to captlize on one of the chances by finding space in the box and was able to then curl the ball into the back of…[Read more]

  • It seems even fifa top sponsors Coca-Cola Co., McDonald’s and Anheuser-Busch InBev are now calling for Sepp Blater to step down as Fifas president but still he stays!
    The top sponsors have said that Blater should leave after fresh criminal proceedings against Sepp over corruption. Coca-Cola has said that they want him to leave immediately so that a credible and sustainable reform can take place at fifa without him doing it. Sepp blater has said that he would step down as president next year after he has made his own reform and cleaned up fifa himself.. which is kinda of laughable if he is being investigated for currption.

    I personally think that the sooner Sepp Blater is gone the better the world of football will be for all of us espcially womens football… how can womens…[Read more]

  • players salary
    The pay gap between women and men in the soccer world is huge! In the Women’s National Soccer League the lowest paid player gets $6,900 whilst in the men’s Major League Soccer the lowest paid player gets $60,00 a year!

    Overall soccer players in the us get paid a lot less than in any other sport in the US! For example the top paid womens soccer player of all time Marta Vieira of Brazil gets paid $400, 000 less than the minimum salary found in other sports leagues in the US!

    Whats your thoughts on this guys?

  • Is the National womens league in financial trouble? That is the questions being asked as despite the rising interest in womens soccer corporate sponsorship deals which are crucial for soccer leagues to stay alive arent really picking up for the National womens soccer league. It is thought that the lowest paid women soccer player in the NWSL gets paid 10x less than the lowest paid men soccer player in major league soccer!
    Complaints about the lack of NWSL budget… poor stadiums and poor accommodation for players has put huge doubt on the future of the NWSL!
    Alex Morgan star forward for the Portland Thorns has recently called out NWSL officials on twitter for booking an “unacceptable” with live bed bugs in a hotel in Kansas city where her team are staying as part of their victory…[Read more]

  • It seems that Livingston football club are single handily destroying their football heritage selling out yet again in the name of cooperate advertisement. It has been announced that the their stadium will be renamed from the Energy Assets Arena to the Tony Macorni Arena after a pizza and pasta producing restaurant chain. Originally the stadium was named the Almondvale Stadium which many fans still refer to it as… however the fans opinions don’t really count at all in the cooperate world today only money counts even if that does mean selling out totally.
    I do worry when capitalism encroaches onto football like this and it makes me think when will all this end? If things carry on like this whereby every inch of football is taken over by advertisement we may end up with a game like…[Read more]

  • Iranian national team

    The Iranians womens team are men. No im not being mean they actually are! You just cannot make this up apparently according to reports up to eight players playing in the women’s Iranian national team are really men!
    This isn’t the first time Iran has had gender problems as last year It was outed that four players playing for Irans women’s team where either men who had not fully completed their sex change operations or had sexual development disorders.

    Questions are being raised about how exactly Iran has gotten away with playing men instead of women in there team… It is thought that all of this is not being noticed because Irans Women’s team play in full head scarfs as well as big baggy tracksuit pants.

    Despite filling the means team with men the Iranian side is only ranked…[Read more]
