Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
Reckons the Womens Super League AND Championship should be fully professional

Also says Womens football can be a 'billion pound industry'.
If someone gives them a billion pounds I imagine .... mostly mens football and/or taxpayers

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
Probably been said already but why doesn't the woman's football separate from the men's fa and then if the are independent they can raise their own funds and pay themselves whatever they want.
Think they would be in for a shock

I think she’s a pretty decent pundit. I’m just glad that we don’t have idiots like that fucking twat Rapinoe over here. Just about to retire and she comes out in support of blokes that want to play for the women’s team.

Idiot virtue signaller.

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
All teams in the womens game are loasing shitloads of money, the average cost of of a match ticket is £8

It'll become a billion pound industry if punters want to pay the money to watch it in the stands and through TV sub's. At the moment they don't

I say give them the money and let it corrupt them.

Be quite funny to see Leah Williamson ragging ten blokes/birds on a boozy bender post season.

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
When the women's game attracts crowds like the men's game AND they charge the same for tickets, then they should get equality.

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
Maybe they should have made pitches smaller and had less players. Or at the very least make the goals smaller. They just don’t seem to have the power, height or speed, it lacks any real dynamics.

Could have turned it into a sort of footsall thing. Make it a different game based on technique only. Then no one would compare it as much to the men’s game and they could forge their own way.

Right now it’s a bit like watching football in slow motion with essentially no functioning goalkeepers…

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
The growth and improvement in womens football in the last decade is a good thing.
Anything that gets young girls playing sport and inspires them to stick at it when they see role models is a positive.
They are only just starting to get their own LADY PRODUCT sponsors but still dont generate serious ticket money or broadcast revenue.
There is a World Cup next week (?) and the BBC & ITV had to be railroaded into making an offer after originally offering what the rights are worth.
It can reach a level but that should be through the sponsorship, ticket and broadcast revenue THEY attract.

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
The problem is very simple. Women players and women in football continue to do this comparison with the men's game. But, for me, they are so far apart its unreal.

It's a bit like blokes who drive the Porsche Challenge Cup saying they should be getting the same money as F1 drivers. No, you shouldn't.

I think the women need to stop comparing the men's game and just grow and develop their own game. Improve the players, improve the standard, improve the level of competition and let the sport grow organically.

Then if eventually that leads to 50,000 crowds, high quality games, genuinely high level of competition and good, skilful, world class players on show, then obviously the money within the money women's game grows through gates, TV rights, sponsors etc etc and the players can earn more.

All this, we want what the men get, just leads to them isolating the women's game from the men's even more.

She is indeed very knowledgeable and a good pundit.

However, she does this... really annoying thing where... she pauses at... random points in her... sentences.

Drives me up the wall

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
Apparently female footballers are “ elite “ athletes.

I wouldn’t even describe male footballers as that.

They basically kick a pigs bladder and chase it.

I’d describe people like the Brownlee brothers as elite athletes.

I think many national associations pay their international players the same.
The USA were one of the first because I think their womens team DOES generate more income than the men.
I'm not sure what happens with FIFA prize money and whether that goes to the players but I do know that the England mens team receive a nominal (for them) match payment of £2,000 which since 2007 the team have donated to an FA Foundation which distributes that to charities.
Not sure what the women get or whether any give it to charity.
I suspect not and they are now 'negotiating' with the FA over World Cup bonuses they feel they are entitled to.

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
No interest or comment on this, but I like Carney, comfortably a better pundit than the majority of ex-players now stealing a living.

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
Maybe in the minority here but I like her, is a good pundit

Not sure I agree with her here though, women's football is just plain rubbish, half of them can't pass 5 yards to a team mate

Do they do that in the UK for the national teams?

Here the revenue that is made by Soccer Canada is split evenly between the two.

To be fair, the women have been more successful on the pitch than the men, so revenue streams are closer than in most countries. Though going to the World Cup means the men have made more lately.

But we are also taking tiny money compared to the UK or even the States.

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
I've just published my very own 'independent review' into the future of my own finances. I've proposed, that if everyone in the country just gives me £1 each, you'll never hear from me again. That's more than fair.

I'd be astonished if the total take in from fan turnout over a league season is close to a million pound?

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
Say we get someone like Jess Phillips as minister for sport in a few years time it wouldn’t surprise me if they made the men’s game fund the women’s game in some way. And to be fair there is more than enough cash sloshing around the top of the game.

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
The only way it becomes a "Billion Pound" industry is if they play naked or at least topless.........

I may watch it then!

Re: Karen Carney publishes 'independent review' into the future of womens domestic football
Eventually women’s football will have to punch its weight.

Until the entertainment is good enough it won’t get the interest. Sooner or later people will wanna see a return on their money.

Get a load of junior men to transition and you might get a game worth watching
