And so as the loose-bowelled pigeon of time swoops low over the unsuspecting tourist of destiny, and the flatulent skunk of fate wanders into the air-conditioning system of eternity, I notice it's the end of the show

Theres a reason for that.


Yeah, I'm sure those Champions League final tickets for the most boring game of the season were worth every pound.

Is anyone else going over to see it? We're going to Nice for the England v Scotland match on Sunday. The most expensive tickets were only €30.


I'm doing both SFs and the Final, all in Lyon. And a quick trip up to NW Germany in-between!

Hmmm, I think quality of product is a factor in demand...

Poll: Would love to see one of our midfield contribute 10+ goals. Who is most likely.

Each to their own. As already mentioned, the two biggest games in European mens football were hardly a festival of quality football.

Not sure what mens football has got to do with it? But seeing as you mentioned it, the CL semi finals were not all that dull.

To be fair, I think the womens game has improved, and I'll probably watch the England matches.

I hadnt mentioned the quality until you brought it up.

Bloody hell, lighten up fella.

SM suggested that the CL final tickets were poor value for money, I stated that I dont think the Scousers would think so.

Agree to differ. ;-) x x

Love watching women’s golf, boxing now, because of Katie Taylor, even cricket but I draw the line at women’s football. It is a very very poor standard, I’m sure I will get downvotes for this but it is my opinion.

Most men's football is a poor standard. We got used to that this season. Next season will be even worse.

If you think that league one football is of the same standard as league one then you obviously know nothing about football. Lewiston would demolish any woman’s national team, hell my Sunday league team probably would.
But it doesn’t matter what I say does it spruce, if I say s9methjngs black you will say it’s white. Surprised your still on here to be honest

The standard is improving, mainly due to professionalism I guess.

Goal keeping is still a major issue which lets it down, but at least that means more goals.

The womens teams would get beaten by mens club teams fairly low down in the pyramid, but as they are not playing mens teams, it does remain a competitive spectacle.

Funnily enough, most of the experts viewed that Katie Taylor lost on Saturday.... her agent agreed.... and so did she.

You have frequently taken issue with women's football. It's not the Premier League, we get it.

Why are you even comparing the standard of men's football to women's? They can;t be compared. Men's football is a gigantic behemoth of grotesque financial scams. Women's football is grass roots, mainly because, you know, woman have been discriminated against at every turn.

Are you so insecure as a man that you need the constant reminder that some other men (who aren't even you) are better at football than some other women? This was a positive thread about an aspect of football that many people enjoy. Why do you need to try and ruin that?

For all you lot saying it's not about women, you don't half love to pile onto any thread that talks about women's football.
