“what feels like the end is often the beginning” Salut tout le monde! I am happy to share with y’all that I will be blogging again this season for Women’s Soccer United! Hopefully I can continue to share insights and experiences through Women’s Soccer United! This summer literally FLEW by! I wanted to get back home as soon as possible after last season ended; I needed to distance myself from the sour taste the year had left with me.
Should coaches implement a philosophy or play with a system in which the players are already comfortable...
With Manchester United’s slow start to the domestic season, there has been a lot of talk this week about whether coaches should implement a philosophy or play with a system in which the players are already comfortable with.
In the face of many problems, Trinidad and Tobago have already achieved their first step, qualifying...
My first experiences with Trinidad and their women’s football programs was back in 2008 when I was appointed the U-17 WNT coach. I found then that I loved my time in Trinidad and Tobago, and was really hopeful that someday I could return to coach the team again.
You are right John. Finances played apart ahead of the 2014 season kick-off when many felt that Man City had ‘bought’ their way into the top-tier of women’s football (having never reached that level before on merit), at the expense of Doncaster who were replaced by Man City and subsequently relegated just a couple of matches into the 2013 season! Also a lot of top players were attracted to Man City on their arrival, such as Steph Houghton and Toni Duggan.
It will be interesting to see how the league develops and how the different clubs perform. I am interested to see what happens next season when the winner of WSL 2 is promoted into WSL 1. It will be the first time that a club will have entered the league because of their achievements on the pitch rather than by presenting a proposal in order to ‘earn’ a place. I am hoping Sunderland are promoted because they have produced lots of top class players that went on to compete in the WSL so it would be great for the club to make it.
Great piece! My concern is how quickly the WSL will come to resemble the men’s
premier league? It is already the case that the teams sponsored by men’s teams – Manchester City, for example – are on a stronger financial footing than those without such support – Bristol Academy, for example. The lure of better pay from well-resourced teams whIch already sees many men footballers move to Premier League teams may also start to operate in the WSL.
Please note: US Soccer have today announced a kick-off time change for this fixture. Details have been edited above.
“on 9/13 kickoff time is CHANGED to 7:30 p.m. MT”
Good luck to all the competing teams!
