      2-0 win over the Gunners. Goals to The Norwegian Princess Guro Reiten and the Korean Queen Ji So Yun.
      Now to face ManCity with Ellen White and Leah Williamson and Hayley Raso, at Wembley.

      Bring it on!


      (PS. ..watchin' the replay just noticed that Arsenal's sleeve sponsor says " Visit Rwanda". Yes. I've heard they're gettin' a few more travellers soon 😙)

        Thanks to the good people from youtube, am watchin' the womens euro champs game PSG V Lyon. Mainly for our girl Ellie "bombin' down the wing" Carpenter and the Dark Shark Catarina Macario. Absolute howler from PSG gk who gifted the Dark Shark a goal but that's what a dark shark does. Sniffs blood in the water. Accordin' to USWNT chat forums, she is coach Vlatko's pet and he prefers her to Alex Morgan. Cue the meltdowns.

        Anyhoo Lyon 3-2. Hope they face Barcelona who do look formidable. Luckily it does not translate to their national side. Hahahahaa. Poor espana. Hahaha.

        Also today Chelsea beat Spurs to remain on course to win the league. Slammin' Sammy Kerr scored the second in a 3-1 win.

        So a year out from World Cup

        1. USA may look to youngsters. Macario, Rodman, Smith, Hatch
        2. England will hope to win Euros at home to gain big tournament confidence under new skipper Leah Williamson.
        3. Spain will hope to improve.
        4. Australia will hope to make semis.
        5. Norway will have Hedeberger back. Watch out.
        6. France will hope to go further, as will Germany, Holland, Brazil, Sweden, Canada.

        but, you know the Yankee Danks are current world champs and have built a culture of success.

          Anticipation and excitement building ahead of Leicester City's first European competition semi-final tomorrow evening. I wish I xoutbe there in person, but I'll be watching on TV. It's live on BT Sport. KO: 20.00
          Preview followed by live coverage of Thursday's Europa Conference League game between Leicester City and Roma.

                Chelsea 2- Spurs 1

                Relief. Unfortunately only audio available on the FA player. Since Optus2 was playin' it down here.

                Another goal from Slammin' Sammy Kerr and one from Beth England (whose form should see her play for England in the upcomin' Euros at home)

                Sammy looks to have another golden boot to go with her others from Oz, USA,England.

                Only 2 games to go. Nose in front of Arsenal for the title.

                Go you good things!

                      Again thanks to the good people at youtube, just watched Lyon overcome PSG in front of 43k raucous crowd incredible atmosphere. Led by Hederberg and Renard, the ladies in white looked solid. My girl Ellie Carpenter and the Dark Shark Macario played well.

                      How do you stop Wendy Renard from scorin' a header in the plenty box? She's at least 6'6". An Amazon!
                      So now they play Barcelona. In the final. Bring it on!

                              Terrible game, dreadful news. OM won't be playing the final, and neither will Leicester, Ashe...Maybe next time then !

                                It hurts. I think Leicester were a bit overwhelmed by the occasion and froze up. We didn't play well at all. I could go on about the weak officiating and the home team being favoured by the referee, but if you don't create chances and take them, you're not going win games like this, whatever the refereeing is like.
                                Still, it's an achievement reaching a semi-final of a new competition, particularly given the season we've had with so many long-term injuries to key players, especially defenders, and the craziness of the previous two seasons as well.
                                Another half dozen games left in the domestic season, and I hope we can finish with a bit of a flourish, get some wins, secure a top-half berth
