ok so it’s kicking off at last ..or is it..
and what can we do?
is chauvenism dead on the field and terraces?
how behind are we
isn’t it time to sit up and take note?
Kelly Holmes or Kelly Smith
both run their hearts out
but one with a ball

within 3 years the self-formed Dick Kerr Ladies
fronted by the mighty Lily Parr
were playing matches
to crowds of 50,000..honest!
they played abroad as well
enjoying successful trips
to France, Holland and North America
the team were in truth
the first blend of marketing and football
despite the insane objections of the tme
that paying football might be dangerous
in the birth process

and so women’s football was born
but where are we now?
busy being reborn
and in the Women’s World Cup
having got there for the first time
and facing no less
the old enemy – Germany
and another fact…
have never beaten Germany
losing 15 of their 16 meetings.
it’s time to get yer flags out for the girls
and don’t they look cool too..
