Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Having always thought of the womens' game as a pale imitation of the real thing, played out in empty echoing stadiums, I never thought I'd find myself saying this, but I've been watching and enjoying and been impressed by the womens' World Cup so far.

In particular it's been fascinating watching how the game pans out when it's played with all the intelligence and skill of the mens' game but without the strength and speed. Also some of the games have been refreshingly free-flowing, as there seems to be less tackling, hence fewer fouls and injuries. Great stuff. Pity I can't see England winning it, but I'm used to that from the mens' game.
