Are we thinking Argentina are a threat to us or that we are a threat to Japan?

 

Can't tell if Japan aren't what they've been cracked up to be or if Argentina have improved

 

Pretty comfortable for Argentina to defend. They did well. Commentators saying it's a young Japan side so maybe first match nerves and inexperience. 

 

Scotland must be encouraged.

Aye. That could retain a bit of balance and still allow for genuine accidents whilst defending and blocking at close quarters. However, we'd still have the Lanarkshire ref deciding what is, and isn't, 5 yards. 

 

It's a puzzler, bud. 

 

 

VAR could categorically clear that up tho, but if we didn't have it, it would still be a disaster.

Fair doos to the women. 

 

Been a few dunts and they just get on with it. 

 

That Canadian lass taken one straight in the stomach on the follow through, got up straight away. 

 

A couple of balls to the face, (now, now) not even a flinch. 

Bounce straight back up 9/10.

 

Refreshing, with the no play acting and mincing about.

So if Branco hit a free kick straight in their chops? Or Souness went over the ball?  Straight back up?  Don't think so. Women can't kick the balls hard, unless the wages are short.

You seem to have a problem understanding that the women are playing other women, and nobody is expecting them to compete against or with mean. If your churlish argument (repeated over two threads) is that they couldn’t compete against men, then I’m pretty sure everyone agrees with you. That’s why there’s no men there playing against them.

 

Do you sit and watch Wimbledon and get in a rage when it’s The Womens’ Final because the Champion wouldn’t beat a bloke? Do you wind yourself up in to right ball of rage when a woman gets a gold medal at the olympics for sprinting, because her time isn’t as quick as the men?

 

Totally weird running down womens’ sport for these reasons. Doesn’t make you look good, and it just ruins the thread for everyone else. :(

Point totally missed. 

That was something tbh. 

 

 

The point was they don't roll about when not  really hurt. 

Diving, pretending to be hurt, time wasting, barrel roles, fake waving cards.... Like the men do- A lot. 

 

I'm sure if thier ankle was really snapped or they were unconscious they would stay down. 

 

Also, in regards to force, let a women kick boxer kick you in the face, see if it hurts.

Be nice if the mods could have a wee clean up so we can actually talk about the matches going on and the world Cup in general. 

 

Same people with the same points on separate threads. It's boring.

Women can’t kick balls hard ?  , fancy coming up to the Oriam Wednesday or Thursday , when the Hearts women’s team are training , you to make a solo wall and we’ll find out if that is in fact true ?

Jesus, are folk so literal in real life?

 

There will be exceptions, but on the whole, no where near as much. 

 

Whole games have went past without a lass going down like she was shot and not much pestering/ mouthling off at the ref.

But, yes.  The women don't dive around or even hardly complain to the ref.

 

Apart from the filthy cheating Argies.

Yup, that's due to Title IX Legislation.

Not looking great for Thailand. 7-0 down with 30 minutes to go. And the Yanks not easing off. I expect double figures.

Doesn’t matter what level you’re at, those USA celebrations are over the top when you’re dishing out this kind of hammering.

USA clearly settled down half time played more calmly. Just walked through them. Could have been 20 plus.

That was like a pool match in the Rugby World Cup, All Blacks vs someone wee. That's a feature of tournaments (any tournament, in any sport) with a high number of finalists, drawn from a pool of entrants with relatively few quality sides. 

 

Still, the US didn't let up and were very professional. Hopefully they'll give England a sound thrashing at some point.

Hearts men v Cowdenbeath men? 10-0

 

Celtic men v Aberdeen men 9-0

 

Man City v Huddersfield men 11-1

 

Shambolic. Laughable. 

 

The thing about football is that sometimes a team gets pumped by another team.
