Thread: Women's Football Thread

    Default Women's Football Thread

    Bored of posting in that 'genderless football' thread and bumping that discussion. We need a women's football thread. There's a world Cup coming up next month.

    Notts County Ladies made the FA Cup Final today. They'll play Chelsea or Man City.

    There seems to be no hope of any other the other Nottingham teams ever making another FA Cup Final (or even a quarter-final).

    Saturday 1st August. £10 advanced tickets. Bargain. I'm going. Chelsea please.

    FA Ticketing website is frustrating.

    My ticket account is registered to my old address. The address lookup doesn't work. When I change my address manually, it forgets it. I get through to the payment page and it still tells me it will be sending my tickets to my old address.

    If I try to register a new account under a new email or address (like my parents), it tells me there is already fan account registered there. Which isn't true.

    So now I'm stuck. Can Tutts of England Football help, please?

    Hhhmmmm that's reminded me I need to change my address with them too.
    If you're really stuck I'd give them a call. I did once when I shredded some England tickets and they were really helpful.

    Thanks.



    I just bought them at the old address and sent them an email immediately after. We've visitors and the early bird price ends tomorrow, I'd spent too long on it already. I've had my follow up email acknowledged, and the tickets aren't due to be sent out for a while, so it should be OK.

    I have just realised it could be a glorious sunny day, and I've booked tickets in the shade. Balls.

    You've done well, skin cancer on the increase.

    When you put it like that, I guess you're right.

    Sorry, just that they kept going on about it on the radio when I was having breakfast this morning and it quite put me off my food.

    At a tenner for a ticket, I am thinking this might be a good day out.
    All the Lincoln Ladies moved to Nottingham at the same time I did.

    I think today is the last day to buy them at early bird prices of £10 adults, £3 kids. Not sure what price they go up to tomorrow.

    Any connection? Something you're not telling us?

    Doncaster Belles was such an original name for a women's football team. Just to take the name Notts County (already a full team name) and tack on 'Ladies' shows such a lack of class. I mean, Notts Knockers or something similar would have been so much more inventive. Perhaps something slightly less sexist would be chosen, but show you care, Trew. BTW, how many surnames can you type using consecutive letters on a qwerty keyboard, just out of interest?

    My like is for the bit about the keyboard!

    Not sure about your poser, but I do know that the longest word you can type on the top line of a qwerty keyboard is Typewriter

    Oh, good one! I mentioned it because I had just typed Trew. They have to make it easy for Notts fans.

    Sepp "tighter shorts" Blatter must have just noticed there's money to be made in women's football:

    The girls are technically quite good, but, trouble is, they run like women.

    It's not the running it's the throwing they struggle with.

    Tickets are now £15/£5 for concessions. 50% off on group bookings. They are just selling the first level at the moment.

    Bit of shame they couldn't keep it at a tenner, really. It would be good to see a decent crowd of the back of the World Cup (and selling out the England v Germany 50k match).Everything pays off the cost of Wembley I suppose.

    Not really women's football, just women in football.

    They would have done the same at Pride Park on father's day , but you know...
