The misses and I have found something we can watch togtether.....the Ladies Euro adventure, bonus for me, it stopped her watching soap diatribe, all I have to do now is purge her of Vera and get her focused on HALO



  • Yeah looking forward to this one.
  • Come on you Lionesses!!!
  • Alexandra Popp injured in the warm up. Could make job a little easier, hopefully, fingers crossed.
  • Why does the women commentators think their mouths have to be going non stop.
  • They are a bit dirty the Germans.
  • Germany are very physical
  • At last the ref has seen the Germans being dirty and found her yellow cards.
  • Games gone scrappy
  • What a finish for the goal, btw
  • Both goals
  • I don’t recall the German keeper making a save.

    Well down 👏👏👏

    It's finally come home 😊
  • Wonderful stuff!!🎉🎉🎉
  • Well done girls. I thought Chloe Kelly was going to get carried away with her celebration hahaha
  • I really love Serina Weigman, what a coach. I love the way she comes across.
  • As well as Beth Mead played throughout the tournament, my player of the tournament would definitely have been Leah Williamson, although, in truth, you could make a case for quite a few.
  • I remember watching Millie Bright a couple of tournaments ago and thinking she's ok but she could be better. Watched the first game against Austria and she looked a thousand times better. All in all, I thought all of them were great and played like a proper team with no fear. Southgate should take note and remove some of the shackles for the World Cup.
  • Same, Bright was awful last tournament. Although today wasn't her best imo she's been strong throughout
  • good fun, well done Lionesses

    I hadn't watched any of the tournament but .just now catching up on recent news etc after being away. It struck me how white that squad is.
  • MrsG, The BBC made a point of querying how the team didn’t reflect diversity and they got a lot of criticism for saying it. I would like to think the squad is picked on ability & mentality?
  • You would think so, they did lift a trophy after all.
  • I think the argument / debate was based on opportunity, or lack thereof.

    If the squad was almost non white and it was queried, you'd be called a racist for asking the question. Also you'd get racist people saying racist things because the squad was non white.

    I believe the squad was based on ability and was proven because they won the Euros.
  • I don't think anybody is disputing that the squad is picked on ability, obviously that's the case. The conversation point, as Herb points out, is one of opportunity.
  • Racists will be racists whatever the make up of the team.

    The opportunity is there. There are plenty of black players in the WSL but not all of them are English. The team at the last euros/World Cup had at least 2 black people in it and they were both part of the commentary team. As with most sports teams, if they’re good enough they’ll be in it. This new coach is a pragmatist and picks what she thinks is the best squad/team for the job. Given that she’s never lost it seems to work.
