There ARE other teams(we'd have no-one to play otherwise) and here's where all-comers can discuss the wider world of football......

Quite frankly G.G, they were outplayed by a team more physical, energetic, faster and more committed and skilled. Their wingers tore our defence to ribbons. Nicky Parris was right off form and I wouldn't pick Toni Duggan ( a supposed striker who plays left wing and takes corners?) because she doesn't put the work in, and Beth Mead plays better on the left.. They were sadly missing Ellen White, Jill Scott and Fran Kirby, and what Phil was doing calling Lucy Bronze the best right back in the world (which she probably is) and then playing her in midfield I know not. Even the dependables like Steph Houghton and Millie Bright seemed off form. May just be a bad patch, but truthfully, at this level they just aren't good enough right now. Some of the passing was junior school stuff.
The wisest and the best of men, nay, the wisest and best of their actions, may be rendered ridiculous by a person whose first object in life is a joke...Darcy. Pride and Prejudice.
