I have never enjoyed watching football and have never had the slightest interest. Only time I have ever watched with any kind of interest is when there has been a world cup on and I guess you get caught up in the fever and want to support your country, even though they never do any good.
Until.... I started watching the Womens England team! I said to OH "is it me or is this far better than watching the mens footy?" the women seemed to be playing a far more interesting faster paced game. I was quite surprised how much I enjoyed it. The womens team are now in the semi-finals of the European Championship, they are amazing and interesting to watch. It said on the news tonight that they get paid about £30,000.00 a year compared to the millions that the men get paid yet they are winners for the country

My OH is watching Bellatrix and says the women are playing some decent stuff! I haven't watched any as like you am not at all interested but maybe I will after reading your post. In the last year of my primary school, we played footie every break time but I've never kicked a ball since!
Funny isn't it LL. it's not the fact that they are women, it seems they play a more interesting lively match They don't roll around on the ground so much either, clutching at injuries they seem to just get on with it!
