Man City Pass Reading Test

Manchester City Blue Moon

Man City Pass Reading Test

It took a fortuitous late goal from Player of the Match Lucy Bronze to finally break the deadlock – despite Reading’s dogged resistance – and send MANCHESTER CITY through to quarter finals of the FA Cup.

On a cold, wet, miserable afternoon when one or two players looked like they’d rather be somewhere else, Bronze brings a must-win mentality into every game and that’s what makes her an automatic choice on any team sheet.

It’s not that City didn’t have plenty of chances to put this tie to bed much earlier – but a combination of sloppy finishing and brilliant goalkeeping by Mary Earps kept the score even – and the City faithful on the edge of their seats – until the breakthrough came seven minutes from time when – with an uncharacteristic error of misjudgement – Earps allowed Bronze’s lobbed effort from the edge of the box to sneak in under the crossbar.

Women's football is a global village: recent news about women's football around the world

Women’s football is a global village: recent news about women’s football around the world

Whoever thought we would not experience great emotions in women’s football in 2017 was wrong.

We started the year with the announcements of big name player transfers, creations of new leagues and the strengthening of others, as well as the promise of great friendly matches at both club and international level.

Who, like me, can not wait for the matches of the UWCL, NWSL, Frauen Bundesliga, Dammalsvenskan, The FA WSL, D1 Féminine, Algarve Cup, 2017 SheBelieves Cup and for all other leagues and tournaments matches around the world? Raise your hand!

Women’s football has become increasingly global. The United States is no longer alone at the top, more and more nations are increasing the investments in women’s football and others that neither had a women’s football history, begin to develop their first female leagues. The women’s football world is becoming a global village. Of course it has much to do yet. Read the rest of this entry →

We need to talk about The Best FIFA Women’s Player Award

No, it is not April 1st. Carli Lloyd just won the The Best FIFA Women’s Player Award for 2016.

My 10 finalists for Best Women’s Player in 2016

The Best FIFA Football Awards 2016 is approaching so I decided to share with you my 10 finalists for Best Women’s Player in 2016.

Since the defeat of Inka Grings in 2009, we have not seen such a controversial FIFA Women’s Player list such as the current one, which has left out the best European player of the season.

I will not order the players, except the number one, the best of the year, which all female football lovers know, that was Ada Hegerberg, this season. So hope you like it and share your opinion!
