Twelve Days To Go!
There are less than two
weeks to go. Two weeks until the seventh FIFA Women's World Cup kicks
off in Edmonton. Two weeks weeks until I convert myself into a
nocturnal creature whilst still trying to do my day job. Two more
weeks of squad announcements, frie...

One Last Ramble.
I do not want to write this post...but
in many ways I need to. I need to get it out of me, so I can somehow
begin to re-assess my involvement with this league and this sport,
but also because someone somewhere needs
to start ringing the alarm bells at what ...

Fin de Regime? Short Ramble on Turbine's Troubles.
It had gone quiet long before the final
whistle that brought to an end a game that was as a cold damp and

A Ramble on France's Two Game League.

top two winter leagues, Germany's Bundesliga and France's Division 1

Big-Bash-Award ceremony, there is a little matter still left over
from this blog too......

England vs Germany: A rambling reflection...
History was made on Sunday, of that
there is no doubt. The English women's football team made their début at the rebuilt Wembley and

It's Time To Get Real!
today's result in the FBL I think it's time for Turbine Potsdam, its
fans and the fans of the Frauen-Bundesliga in general to stop fooling
themselves and see the situation more realistically. Turbine

“Big Four” in the leag...

Six Rounds Down in the AFBL
Six rounds of the 2014-15 Allianz
Frauen-Bundesliga have been completed and, despite some misleading
results and a few red herrings (plus an alarming series of results in
Duisburg), a pattern is beginning slowly to emerge about who may or
may not take away ...

The Night of the Calculators!
The final batch of
UEFA Women's World Cup qualifiers is upon us this Wednesday and after
a long, predictable and at ties somewhat dour year of football,

Qualification competition i...
