Sorry for going off topic, but my reference to Beckham and Rapinoe, brings to mind that Beckham crossed a great ball for Donevan to head home, and then scored one from a corner kick on the left side, his kicking delivery is still class, that was yesterday or the day before.
The LA Galaxy play Real Madrid on the 16th July 7pm at the LA Coliseum.

I remember playing in a 5-a-side tournament about 20 years ago and one of the teams had woman who was a Scottish international in their side. There were a few smirks from several of the guys (not me, honest rolleyes.gif ) until she rattled in a hat trick in her first match. We all gave her the respect she deserved after that, although she did complain a little about the robust challenges inflicted on her.

The history of woman's football is interesting, back in the 1920s woman's teams were getting gates of 50,000 people for matches in England. The FA apparently put the kibosh on it by warning member clubs not to encourage the sport or let woman's teams use their stadia. Just wonder where it could be now.

Angel, I read about it somewhere, back in the mists of time smile.gif I'm pretty sure the women's teams were formed by munition workers during the war. As you say, it is hardly surprising that it was stiffled by men at the time, but outrageous nevertheless.

Just as a matter of interest Crewsy !

Where does the word 'Soccer" come from and why is it used instead of football?
The word "soccer" comes from the original name of the game "Association Football" or more precisely from its abbreviation Assoc. Assoc. was a slang term used in UK universities from about 1889. It later became socca, socker (1891) and finally evolved into soccer (1895).

The Football Association was founded in London in October 1863 by eleven clubs/schools. The Association agreed upon a standard set of rules prohibiting use of the hands or carrying the ball. The clubs which opposed this rule eventually broke away conceiving their own version of the game - rugby.

At that time, Rugger meant "rugby rules" football while soccer meant "association rules" football. by Expert 23:13:53 Sunday 18 July 2004
If you need more Info. Crewsy , just Google .

Angel always had a soft spot for womens soccer. I had the first womens team in ottawa and we played in montreal about 120 miles from ottawa for two years till we got enough teams to form a league in ottawa. That would be about thirty years ago and of course womens soccer has just skyrocketed. I had coached mens and kids and womens soccer was so refreshing with their attitude to each other. It was just wonderful



Hi Andy that was quite a trip from Ottawa to Montreal for a game of soccer every week , fantastic .
Just a wee thought here , do you remember when we signed our kids
in to play soccer for the first time , we affectionally called it , the Banana League . Just wondering ! biggrin.gif

Reference to LA Galaxy and David Beckham in a topic about Women's Football !

My suspicions about both the team and the player have finally been confirmed !

There's a brilliant Scottish player called Julie Fleeting who has scored a remarkable amount of goals for Her team, Arsenal Ladies and for Scotland. It seems though, that the fitba for women is most prized down south where there are many millions of pounds to be used, whereas in Scotland it's unaffordable. Sad, but true.

Halftime USA 1 France 0.
The USA are a strong solid team, but in this game France are playing the better fitba, many more shots on goal too.
