There are countless articles and comments fuelled with negativity about women’s football. Often written by a author who (if was honest) would admit that they never bother to follow the women’s game. They just scan the surface of any latest women’s football headlines, rather than actually look deeper into the real game and the support network behind it.
Although it is infuriating, you have to laugh! In just one of the many articles the sentence “a ladies’ version of a game played in men’s shorts.” was used to describe women’s football! Really?
I won’t go into too much detail… I do not want to blow their minds with actual facts, however a quick reminder of the popularity of the women’s game before it was banned (in England). And a question about how many of the male counterparts would have the passion to play the game under the same conditions as the women?
What drives this negativity? Is it out of fear that the women’s game will become more popular as more and more people appreciate the sport which has not yet been tainted with the constant need for cheating to win a game?
Finally… It really does not matter what they think because they have no idea what it takes to be a women’s footballer and/or manager. They definitely have no idea what it takes to be a women’s football fan or part of an organisation appreciating and celebrating the women’s game. For that I genuinely feel sorry for them, because if any part of them love football then they are seriously missing out!
