    Welcome to Manchester reception committee


    Charlton have a mixed history, they had a successful women's team that won a FA Cup and a couple of League Cups, but it was disbanded when the Charlton men's team were relegated from the PL in 2007. It was rescued by sponsorship deals - but lost its best players, including Casey Stoney (she moved to Chelsea).

    They won the Southern Premier League (the tier below the Championship) last year with a goal difference of 85 :eek: and have a good reputation in the Cups. This is their first year in the Championship and they've strengthened their squad in the summer, while keeping most of their old players.

    Their form so far. In the Cup, they've won one and lost one. In the League it's P3 W2 D1 L0. They drew 2-2 with Durham who we know are tough to beat. They beat Lewes 4-1 in their last match - which might not sound too impressive until you realise that Lewes up that point had won their opening three matches in the league.

    Sounds like it should be a good match.

    Durham was a test of our roughness, and this will be a test of our mettle. Charlton could be a contender for promotion, so to beat them at home would be a great way to bounce back and show the wheels are still in motion. If we play like we did against Durham, I fancy our chances.

    The weather forecast is rain, rain and more rain.

    I'm planning to be under cover, though I might have to run from the carpark to the turnstiles :D

    Bargain considering it’s I think £7.99 for MUTV on Sky per month.

    No James in the team sucks but let’s go ladies

    So basically SKY and MUTV are bending me over monthly and just giving it to me hard. Ah well I’m cancelling it today now.

    What on Earth was that corner about?

    MUTV mentioned before the game that Lauren James is away with England.

    I think it was 24euro but that is half normal price apparently. Not sure it's at that price in the UK.

    I’m not sure if this is really a compliment or not but Hanson reminds me of James Milner. She is like a tank and seems to win every challenge, full of running, has a decent shot on either foot and can go past people.

    Crossbar saved United then. Up until then it has been one way traffic.

    1-0 at HT. United have dominated possession, but nearly conceded near the end of the half.

    Miss the easy chance, quick one two with the crossbar then smash in the more difficult half volley. What a finish tho

    Twice in the crossbar! But Zelem’s turn and shot from Greenwoods needleeye pass was a great piece of attacking.

    Biggest of the day across both divisions. Here's today's WSL1 numbers from https://shekicks.net/2018/10/14/fawsl-arsenal-women-put-five-past-chelsea/:

    Bristol City 0-1 Birmingham City (Att: 436)
    Chelsea 0-5 Arsenal (Att: 2,020)
    Everton 3-3 Brighton & Hove Albion (Att: 177)
    Liverpool 2-1 Yeovil Town
    Manchester City 7-1 West Ham United (Att: 1,245)

    Bigger than the biggest match of the day (Chelsea/Arsenal) and more or less twice as many as City got. It's a very solid start for the club - especially given we've gone straight to a paid admission model - some clubs give their men's team season ticket holders free entry to the women's games. For some of our opponents we'll be the first big crowd they've played in front of.

    Makes you wonder what the ceiling would be if we did get promoted. Also you wonder what sort of TV coverage they would give us.

    Gunners beat defending champions Chelsea 5-0 away? They certainly are the team to beat!

    I saw the last hour of it. It didn't look quite as one-sided as it sounds - according to the BBC that was 5 goals from 7 shots on target. But Arsenal are scoring consistently (21 goals in 4 games!) and Chelsea have played 5 games but only scored in one of them (when they beat Brighton 2-0). They're having a poor start and Arsenal are having an excellent one.
