Welcome to Manchester reception committee
We should be back in action tonight down on the south coast. We've beaten them twice so far this season, but we've been struggling a bit since Christmas. Despite postponements and the wobble in our form, we're still fourth, so tonight is about keeping us on track.

A perfect time to watch our match on MUTV now that it’s not played (or postponed from) on the same day as the men’s team play. Wait what, they’re not showing it live on MUTV? Again? Not sure I want to keep on subscribing after the pre season tour.

Now FA Player exists MUTV seem to have a deal that lets them air the home games live, alongside FA Player (so not when they're on BT) but doesn't cover the aways, even when they've been FA Player only. They've got the full 90 minutes on at 10:15 though. It's weird but I've started to think of it as just another weird WSL/FA thing rather than a specifically MUTV one.

Meanwhile, for those who can get it - FAPlayer is free, and available in most countries, but needs registration https://faplayer.thefa.com/home/womens-super-league

Disaster start from Brighton, great one for us. Lauren James cross diverted in of the post and we're 0-1 up.

Thanks! I've signed up.

No sound at the moment, haven't got a clue what I haven't done.

Different formation today - James and Ross seem to be paying wide with Toone and Groenen more central. It's just not really clicking at the moment. A few passes then a fumble usually.

Not many chances either way, still 0-1

Brighton equalise. They've been putting some pressure on us for the past few minutes and the defence/midfield haven't really been looking that comfortable when pressed. 1-1
We're in injury time of the first half.

Another game where we're looking just a bit too sloppy in defence, a bit too imprecise in attack.

Play stopped at the moment with a Brighton player injured.

Sigsworth has just come on for Toone, but that's not because Toone's been particularly worse than the others.

Could be my connection but struggling with the FA player. Though it doesn't look like we're likely to win this match.

I loaded the match from the website on my laptop and Chromecast it to the TV and it's been solid for me. Not the picture quality of Sky or the BBC etc, but not bad - no dropout, stutter, loss of sync etc. That's pretty much been my experience with FA Player previously as well.

Better luck next time maybe?

It's stopped cutting out now. Have a feeling it's something on my end.
