What’s craic with women’s football and attendances in his country? 

It is now getting a lot of publicity, often equal mention with the men on many news bulletins - 5 Live as an example.

Then I noticed Liverpool v Arsenal in the Super League had a gate of 500 the other week.

I imagine the powers that be are concerned that yes, odd games can bring in big crowds, those initiatives with free tickets in Spain and Italy, growing sponsorship etc, but our pro top league just doesn’t seem to be growing with paying customers.

Have you seen the goalkeeping? It's like U13s just starting in full size nets. They should make the goals smaller for women and the pitch. ....

Now 3-0, looks like another double, I hope the club do something to recognise their efforts.

Giving them whatever they need to confirm promotion would be a start...

Despite winning the league (for a third consecutive season) and the rules changing, meaning they don’t need a play-off, it seems it isn’t yet a done-deal.

This from a team that is set to win the treble for a second year in a row and has a GD of plus-85!

Does anyone know the truth about why they weren’t successful in their application last season and the Women’s Championship went ahead with 11 teams rather than accept Rovers? Was it a lack of good enough facilities being made available?

They have another game yet, at home to Guiseley on Sunday. A chance to improve that +93 goal difference.

Good to see the ladies ending the league season with a close run 9-1 win at Bradford. Good luck next season!

The local paper said the first half was pretty even but we pulled away in the second half!

Promoted. Finally.

About bloody time.

No truth in the disbanding rumour then.

I sometimes wonder if these things are leaked to gauge reaction. Not supporting the ladies would have been a huge negative in 2019 that it wouldn’t have been even 5 or 6 years ago.

I really thought it had legs, because I heard it from a few different sources who aren't exactly Madon spying on Brockhall with binoculars accurate, but not bad.

I expect the league would have needed a damned good reason to deny their application after the last two seasons.

They've made an absolute mockery of the bureaucrats’ decision last Summer.

More power to them.
