Fifa Women's World Cup

Always going to happen in a developing sport. I’m sure even Scotland handed out a few thrashing back in the early days of men’s football. 

 

Personally i I felt the USA should have taken their foot off the pedal at 9.

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.

 

 

Thai 'keeper would struggle to beat Willow in the air for a contested ball.

 

 

Was like watching playing when we were kids. Aim the ball at the goalie's head, & given there was about a 4 foot gap above them...goal.

 

:lol:

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. 

 

 

You forgot Stirling Albion 20 hawick 0

Some were saying Hearts were unprofessional taking ten off Cowdenbeath. I wonder if the USA will get similar press now.

I thought the cruellest part was them adding on 3 minutes injury time ??. But aye there were plenty skelpings similar to this when the men's World Cup expanded.

Was just thinking that most of the games have been far closer than last time. 

 

 

You think Thailand would have had a "physical" advantage as well, like being taller and running faster.... ?

I think they would have been annoyed at themselves at half time. So didn't let up second half.

At this level they look strong and potential winners. However don't put them up against a Texas High School boys team.

The coach was quite right in saying it's not her job to rein them in when they are playing in a competition where goal difference matters. If anyone is to blame its the organisers for having teams of such differing ability in the same competition

Perhaps some contributors should look at a few of the defeats suffered by Fort William FC in the past few years if they think this sort of result is unique to the women’s game....

The Thai keeper was about 4ft, even shots that went right at her went in and she didn't even dive for most of them :lol: it was basically like playing with nobody in nets.

Fair enough, but the synchronised dancing on the touchline by the subs was out of order imo

I find myself not even supporting the women's team these days because they have become such arrogant, entitled twats.

 

A far cry from the pioneers of the women's game back in the 90s and early aughts.

On the other hand they showed respect by showing the importance of the game to them. Didn't assume they were going to just turn up and win. 

 

I don't see them as overly arrogant. They just really want to win.

It was the choreographed dancing on the touchline as the goals rained inm.

 

Hopefully a stronger opposition will kick a few into Row Z next game.

Same thing happened in the East of Scotland league this season where the former Junior sides eg Lithgae Rose spanked the dead wood teams 10 or 12 zero on numerous occasions.

I don't know John I thought they went way over the top with the celebrations. Remember when we spanked the blue Brazil? There was nothing like those antics from Hearts players.

They will do that against whoever they score. After the final whistle see how the USA team consoled the Thai players particularly the goalie. 

The night before when both teams get to train on the pitch. The Thai players asked for selfies with the USA team and the Americans happy obliged. The USA in women's football are the equivalent of the Brazilians in men's football. They are superstars.

Then perhaps they should show some humility.

They did. Once the game was over. Which was the proper thing to do.

In the words of the late Eddie Turnbull. Don't worry about as given the chance they would do the exact same to you.

After the game on 01/01/73. He wasn't wrong.

That's why it was annoying that we didn't put at least 8 past them in the 2012 final

 

Settle for any win before hand but 4-1 up with 40 minutes to go we should have really stuffed them

I totally agree. I wanted to win at least 9-1 as 8 is greater than 7.

Exactly right. Humility is to be shown before and after the final whistle. Whilst the game is going on play fair and to the rules but don't ever let off. Anything other than 100% is patronising to the opponent anyway.

The comp? I've not seen too many decent teams but they are one of the better ones, home advantage might see them win it. Probably between them and the USA.
