Enjoyed watching France v S. Korea. Rather like watching a PL team play a league 1 team very one sided and that Renard No.3 for France is clearly a danger in the air. Must have started life in a growbag being feed all sorts of stuff sheís a big unit height wise for sure.

Ashamed to say I've no real interest in it. I know I should, but can't.

Until we get to the semi final, obviously

I'm glad its there and hope that all those who play and like LL watch enjoy it.  However there's only so many hours in a day and mine are taken up with other pursuits.  Would like to see England win, but they've Phil Neville as coach, so probably won't.

I watched a bit of the game, which was quite enjoyable. Iíll tune in for the England games and will dip in and out when there isnít anything else on I want to watch (which is quite often).

I hope itís a success.

Also, for people who go onto twitter and moan how there is womenís football on the tv, why not either watch something else, or do something else? There is plenty on the tv I donít like, but to just have a moan about it is pointless and makes you look like a twat!

The Womenís game has come a long, long way in recent years. Of course there will always be a difference, after all however much legislation there is to make us equall Ďyou cannot change the laws of physicsí as Scottie said on the Starship Enterprise, however in this instance it is the law of evolution. Making some minor adjustments based on that this tournament should be enjoyable to watch. Like my mate I also hope England win, unlike my mate I donít give a rats arse who the England manager is. The documentary on TV the other day, a behind the scenes look if you like was interesting and backs up my comment about how far the game has come for the women.

Beautiful curler from outside the box by Henry for the fourth.

Wendy Renard, apart from being about 2' taller than the Koreans, actually heads a ball with more skill and timing than many top level, male central defenders.

Should France and the USA (champions) top their groups, they will face off in a Qtr. Final.  Not sure if that might help the Lionesses.  One game at a time.

Just about to watch Germany vs China. Enjoyed the games so far. What with the Cricket World Cup and the speedway World Championship also on TV, I'm hardly missing League football.

Based on what? Hasnít he done quite well with this team so far

I donít confess to know much about this form of the game (donít enjoy watching the slow non physical style of it personally), however I caught that documentary the other night and though he sounded pretty clued up.

It just seems to me that he got the job because of playing for ManU for a bit, rather than any record of success in women's football.... or men's for that matter.

Samson had led Bristol to runners up in the league and two FA Cup finals....
