But they can't get semis, so I am not interested.

I have no interest in it personally, but to say "nobody cares" is far from the truth when 7 million people in the UK watched the most recent game. Figures for live sport are always going to be inaccurate as well since a lot of people won't be watching on their own, so it was probably even more.

This is the first time i've seen the women's game getting any kind of MSM attention. However you may feel about any particular sport, it isn't going to grow unless it is accessible and you get people talking about it. Both of these have clearly been achieved.
Why do you assume that because TV figures are inaccurate it was probably more rather than probably fewer? Pure speculation on your part. Error goes plus as well as negative.

That's because women's football sucks.

The women's australian national team were beaten like 7-0 by a bunch of 15 year old kids.

Are you a bit dim in trying to push an agenda that doesn’t exist? The poster literally said that the figures were likely to be higher.

I don’t even watch the men’s football let alone the women’s version; credit to our ladies, I don’t think I could do what they do, but football is rubbish and overpaid sport. I lost faith in England team after they lost to a part time dentist team (Iceland)

People do care but just not in the numbers that the mens game gets. I learnt something that the womens football has been around since the 70s when there was an unofficial womens world cup from watching the match the other day. I never knew there was womens football till a couple of years ago which is when I thought that it came about because they showed a couple of matches on the TV.

Womens football isn't advertised/promoted as much as the mens football is however the womens football following has increased over the past couple of years and is still growing. I think that the matches have been quite good in this world cup, a couple have been poor and the behaviour of one or two teams has been a disgrace (Cameroon).

Calling people dim but misread a simple post. OK.

Makes me really sad. Just because it's women's football no one cares. This time last year when the men's team got into the semi-finals everyone went mental but because it's women this time round, no one cares. I don't care if you say it's because it's less entertaining or whatever because they don't play as well as the men's team. Personally I don't think that's true. Today we scored a goal in under 3 minutes and no one cares, most people won't even be aware of it. It's just so sad to me.
Dont let them wind you up.

Obviously not as big a thing as the mens team, but people are watching.

I think especially if you're a girl/young woman that's into football, I understand it must be really frustrating.

It's just how society is unfortunately.

I've been watching it, but have to confess it is pretty poor from a technical point of view. They cannot pass well and seems Sam Allardyce is hiding amongst the backroom staff. They would probably get a hiding from a Sunday pub football team.

Didn't say that - I said its more consistent and the quality passes strung together by the Scotland womens team happened more regularly than the mens team.

Yes, Barcelona mens c. 2010 passing will beat any womens team but I'm talking about a team like Scotland.

:rofl: even what people count as an ‘ale house’ team in men’s football are far more accomplished than any women’s team at passing the ball.

It’s fine for the women’s game to not be as good as the men’s technically and physically due to what the governing bodies have done over the past 70 years, pretending they are any better than they are makes the game look an embarrassment.

Yeah the sport of thugs is the only sport society really cares about. Oh well, at least for real fans the occasion isn't as easily ruined as it is for men's football.

Historically it is an elitist sport in the UK, with very little, if any accessibility to working class people. The cost of participating and ensuring an appropriate playing field renders it further inaccessible.

If the sport was available to all on the scale of football then it would be able to increase people actually giving a ****.

The fact that there are only about 6 worthwhile teams in the world as well means that there isn’t as much to care about.

Regarding the hooligan type nonsense, a good number of young, rich, sports people are ******s, it’s just that nobody gives enough of a **** about cricket or rugby to report it.

Not to mention most of the gangsters that get killed these days are 'aspiring young footballers'. Doesn't help that hooliganism rep.
