Women's football poll! What are your thoughts on the future and growth of women's football?

Women's football is on the right track and as people take a greater interest in the sport and attendance rises, so do sponsorships and women's pay.

I think it has a lot of potential, but we must not get ahead of ourselves and think that it's going to explode in popularity in just one or two years.

I don't envision women's football climbing much higher, and if it does, it's only baby steps as women's football struggle to gain traction and attention.

For a club with quite a bit of history and has won a French league title in 2009, that's quite a shame. St. Etienne also got relegated and they have quite a lot of history in French football.

I'm hoping this will finally be the year we end our football league exile. The prospect of a new Kop stand by start of next season, to make us a 4 sided ground again, heavy investment from Hollywood owners and keeping the majority of our squad has given me some hope. However the disappointment of play offs and the previous 15 years of torture still weigh heavy. Trying not to get too ahead of myself but surely this must be our year!

I was very surprised when he went to Brighton in the first place but I’m fairly sure they should find a decent replacement.
There does seem to be a shortage of high quality left backs right now.

Since they seem to be ubiquitous: Has UEFA commissioned rainbow captain's armbands for the Women's EUROs or is this an independent, player-led initiative? I remember the official UEFA armband being dark blue with a "RESPECT - NO TO RACISM" label, although many captains at last year's EUROs wore (unmarked) rainbow armbands after UEFA denied a request to light up the Allianz Arena in rainbow colours before Germany vs Hungary.

What does everyone think about Spurs’ chances this season after a productive transfer window? As a Spurs fan, I’m excited for the new season.

As long as Outer Sparta can keep it running, I see no problem with this thread running to page 500. I also declare that I am also interested to see how Chelsea performs in the post-Roman Abramovich era and around 2½ months of operational restrictions due to sanctions against Abramovich.

England Women’s are through to the Euro 2022 final after beating Sweden 4-0. They will face Germany or France in the final. I think England has a chance of winning the trophy, but I do not think it is a certainty yet. Looking at the quarter final records:

1. England had to wait until extra time to beat Spain 2-1.
2. France also had to wait until extra time to beat the Netherlands 1-0.
3. Germany beat Austria 2-0 without requiring extra time.

The result of Germany vs. France will also be another variable. EXTRA: Germany beat France 2-1, so it is still a close contest.
