    Welcome to Manchester reception committee


    This is potentially our most difficult league fixture so far. They're an established WSL2/Championship team and unlike some of those we've played, they didn't go through major changes in the summer.

    Their season so far:
    WSL Cup - Reading 4-1 Durham
    WSL Cup - Durham 1-0 Everton
    WSL Cup - Durham 3-3 Liverpool (Liverpool won on penalties)

    Championship - Sheffield United 0-2 Durham
    Championship - Durham 2-2 Charlton

    A comment from one of the clubs that have played us both. This comes from Reading's manager, Kelly Chambers, from her comments prior to our cup game with them - Reading played us in pre-season, so they already knew a bit about us.
    “They (United) have got an exciting young team,” said the Royals boss.

    “They’re very organised and even though their players have been in and around the WSL, they’re still a very young side and they’re going to be doing a lot of learning.

    “They won’t be used to people like Durham that have been in the league for a long time, Durham know how to defend and they’re physical, they’re tough and they’re not easy to beat."

    So, about the same results as we had against the same teams, one goal different in each of them.

    You can just sense it’s going to be a different test to endure. It’s in the name, even. Where exactly is Durham?

    Not televised from the looks of it. Just checked through MUTV listings for the whole week and the only thing I can see is highlights of the reading and Shef Utd game at 6 am and 6:30am on Tuesday. You would think all our home games they would show on MUTV, never felt the need to phone in to the paddy show but I feel it brewing to complain about the coverage.

    Probably. They may add in the schedule at the very last minute to encourage more people to physically go to the match. But I would like to see more people demand it on Mutv so people like me who are outside of the UK get to see them.

    How the hell is this not on MUTV... So no method whatsoever to watch this game on tv??

    How disappointing. Men's team is a joke, and now I can't even watch the women's team.

    Third home match of the season, and the first one I can actually attend. I'm looking forward to it. A real shame about the MUTV thing though - it's not at all obvious why they can't broadcast it live.

    No, but they will show the West Ham game over and over again, when nobody wants to watch it. They really need to get their act together.

    Looks like MUTV are showing a repeat of the U23 match against Norwich...which wasn’t even a good match the first time

    It costs to pay for rights, cameramen and a couple of reporters so we are probably talking about £5k loss. It's not like we are the richest club in the world...

    Well there is a satellite van here but no cameras yet. Not some other United news brewing maybe? :nervous::drool:

    Edit. One half-way line camera now setup

    The teams are out practicing. Grey skies today, yesterday was much nicer weather, but it's a nice looking stadium. Our ads and banners of the team up, it really does look like our stadium.

    Sky are outside. I guess they're doing a "what do you think about Pogba and the manager." Hopefully people are telling them that Stoney already has a good squad for today.

    How many will be there do you think? Get filming the goals if they aren't bothering to broadcast the game. :p

    The main stand is filling up nicely. I'm bad at guessing numbers, but there's certainly already over a thousand sat on my half of the stand.

    Half way through first half, United have been pretty much in control but a combination of a few missed chances and some excellent defending means it's @ManUtdWomen 0 @DurhamWFC 0.

    Good half from us, but still goalless, not for want of trying or opportunity though.

    Half time and we have dominated, played with spirit and determination. Players have run for each other, done the simple things well and look motivated and hungry.

    Casey for Manager!

    It was said this would be a hard game. Got the official Manchester United Women's twitter account. Absolutely nothing. The lineups and that is it. Amateur.

    The twitter account has just told me 2 minutes ago that it is 0-0 at HT. About 25 minutes too late.

    Nasty looking injury here. Leah Galton I think - being very carefully prepared to be stretchered off.

    It is ridiculous. The quality is what you'd expect of a site like this with a volunteer doing the social media. Not a club worth billions with dedicated paid social media people.

    We need a goal alert system on the CAF if they aren’t going to air the woman’s games, is it still 0-0 people at the game?
    I’m really surprised that it doesn’t seem like anyone thought it would be a good idea to make a documentary of this season for the woman’s team, from it getting announced all the way through. Think it would have been really intresting to see it all coming together and seeing how they all are at the media and sponsorship things they’ve had to attend.

    Exactly, it's not hard for them to make an effort but you can tell it's a chore to them.

    Game finished 0-0. There was a missed penalty (Zelem I think) in the second half. And Halton had to be stretchered off not long after coming on as a sub.

    Overall Durham were a solid team. We did everything though except score. James was the stand out player for me, with some great passes and great runs.

    This team has scored 21 goals so far, and the two games I've been able to attend we've failed to score! Oh well, hopefully it's third time lucky against Charlton.

    Thanks for the update. If you attend that Charlton game and they fail to score then we’ll know you are the jinx :lol:

    Think a lot of people said Durham would be a hard game as they were a proper established team, would have liked to have seen the game to see how much better they were compared to the likes of Villa.
