    The Live Match Discussion Thread: 2019/2020

    Assume there's not enough interest for a devoted WWC thread or one would already exist.

    England up 2-0 against Scotland at the half, right now. Both sides playing decently but Scotland seriously lacking a final pass.

    England been very good - a lot better football than under Simpson. And looking stronger than when I watched in the She Believes cup and when they drew 0-0 with Wales in qualifying. Parris, Kirby, Bronze in particular are very good

    Agreed.

    Italy pulled the surprise of the tournament so far by beating Australia.

    Honestly I'm concerned for the US this year... Our manager is a simp of the highest order. Our win in 2015 was very much in spite of her.

    England are about fourth favourites or something? Should be a decent side.
    There are only two man-made objects that can be seen from space.

    About 6th, probably.

    France, USA, Australia, Japan, Germany, England, roughly in that order. Although if you ask me, Australia, Japan, England, and Germany are all better sides than the US this year. Norway, too, probably (at least if Hegerberg was in France, which sadly she isn't).

    If you can't tell, I really strongly dislike our manager, Jill Ellis. She's Deano levels of tactically inept.

    Shocking from them to not have Australia in that tier honestly.

    All Scotland this half but some exceptionally poor decision making in the final third from them.

    Scotland played well second half but in reality England should have been out of site first half. Still think the better side won and whoever was on co comma claiming it was not a penalty is a buffoon.

    Whoever is co-comms on Japan v Scotland game is the most nieve person person on the planet. Harping on about the contact for the penalty. Keep your hands away no problem.

    Working away, only 'saorview' in the B&B i'm using. So lack of channels i'm forced to watch the womens world cup - England V Argentina. God it's poor, they should be playing on a much smaller pitch. Argies keeper very good. Kevin Doyle doing the half time punditry in the studio, he looks absolutely knackered, about 50 years old. Bizarre.

    More entertaining than a lot of championship games certainly but on a strictly 'football' level it's poor. Not even conference level. It's a different sport. Still, it is what it is.

    Comparing men’s and women’s game is absurd. Imo have to judge it in its own right. The game is still developing world wide so you’ll get a lot of mismatch games.

    I agree. It's like comparing men v womens tennis. It's a different game. Not complaining but if there was anything more interesting on the other 4 channels available I wouldn't be watching it.

    I have been watching a lot of ladies football for a good while. Its still a bit kick and rush but I have to say I enjoy it.

    Some proper shit refereeing in the Holland Cameroon game. Some really odd punditry from the BBC too - apparently Cameroon need to be less agressive so the Dutch are allowed to play..

    Good opener in the U21 Championship. Poland beat Belgium 3-2, probably just about deserved.

    Italy vs Spain later.

    Spanish keeper merked at his near post, 1-1 against the run of play.

    Chiesa meant every inch of that. Absolutely insane goal.

    Some seriously good football on show here.
    This year, to save me from tears
    I'll give it to Hélder Costa

    Italy have some very, very good players breaking through. Chiesa is so good.
