    That is a very good (and interesting) point @Sebastian! When I was playing football I never referred to the sport as ‘ladies’, ‘women’s’ etc, it is only now since reporting – that these gender distinctions have become more noticeable  for me personally, especially in England where it is part of the club’s identity so you feel obliged to include it when reporting.
