Some bird has walked away from the birds' team in Brighton after they were tonked 8-0. 

Can't imagine anyone being bothered but when the BBC alert states 'Brighton parts company with manager' it's quite misleading.

 

By 'some bird' you mean one of the pioneers of the women's game and a key component to how the national team have become a success.

Yeah. Her. 

 

It's the way the beeb slip the WSL into ordinary football conversation that is annoying.

'Up next Arsenal v Spurs' grabs your attention even if its a little confusing as Arsenal played Manchester United 2 days early in the Premier League.

Nah womens football is not like mens, and I’m sure there loads whilst watching mens football have no interest in the woman’s game 

You’re right, there will be a significant number that have no interest in the women’s game. 
But, it’s still football. 
The thing with it for what the broadcasters are doing is that, when games are mentioned like the one I mentioned on Sunday, they never said what competition it was in.

When it’s the EFL, Premier League, champions League or whatever the broadcasters all announce the competition. But they didn’t mention the WSL at all when talking about the Arsenal game on Sunday. It made it feel like they were trying to hoodwink you into watching, by making you think it was a Premier League game.

Spot on Reesh.

How long do we think before a woman gets an EFL coach job? Are there any assistants already in the EFL? I would have thought it would be good experience to see how mens professional football works, if the womens game is to keep stepping up.

Across the European women's football leagues 72% of the head coaches are still male. The WSL does lead the way though. 56% head coaches are female, up from 25% in 2015. But even the FA fall down in some aspects. They run an accelerated 'elite' coaching programme but it's to get more women to coach in the women's game. The methods being 'taught' are specific to the women's technical/physical aspects of the game. Of course they're transferable but to a point. Women goalkeepers, for example, have long fought for gender specific coaching. 

There are a few female assistant coaches working in academies but this is mostly to fill their portfolios up. There have also been some notable appointments in Europe. Claremont famously appointed a female head coach but she lasted a day. Italy had a female head coach of their national u16s for a while and Shelley Kerr managed Stirling University in the Lowland League. 

Out of the current crop, Sarina Weigman and Emma Hayes probably have the transferable skills and aptitude but no EFL club is going to take a punt in the next ten years. They could get a role in somewhere like the MLS, where there's a zero relegation prospect and associated revenue drop. 

The concept and rules are the same but adult women's football is a totally different game to coach, compared to the men's game.

Was she the one that did herself no favours by being pretty nasty about AFC Wimbledon when turning down the job with them?
