    Women Football

    Is anyone following a women league?
    I'm watching the Damallsvenskan which is Swedish. My favourite team is Umeň IK, they had the world's best player, Marta, but she left us at the beginning of the season for LA Sol.

    So I was just wondering is there somebody interested in women football here? Probably not, but I can only ask

    Arsenal do have one of the best girlsquads in the world though.. Danish club Brondby IF got a pretty good girlsquad as well.

    But no, it's simply to friggin' boring to watch.
    I watched the world cup final between USA and Brazil ... soooo booorriiiinnng....

    Correct Bojan.

    I can understand it's boring if you compare it to Barša They play really slow and most of the goals are from inside the box.

    UIK totally trashed Arsenal last year in the UEFA Cup, I made a video about it:

    Marta that Brazillian women who won the Women's World Player of the Year a couple of years back?
    "The great fallacy is that the game is first and last about winning. It's nothing of the kind. The game is about glory. It's about doing things in style, with a flourish, about going out and beating the other lot, not waiting for them to die of boredom." - Danny Blanchflower

    I'm not a fan... When women play, it stops being the beautiful game. Quite ironic. Also, after having watched my senior school's girl's football team play a few matches, I told myself I'd never watch women/girls play again. They have surprisingly insane egos.

    She has won it a couple of times actually, she won in 2006,2007 & 2008 and was the runner up in 2005.

    Umeň IK just won 0-16 for the Swedish cup against a lower division team. Imagine what the score would be if Marta still played for them.

    Yeah, and I thought Barša beating Madrid 2-6 was a lot.
