Reds edge closer to WSL Cup
A crucial game for the Ladies, as a win would see them go above either(or) Chelsea (2nd) and Birmingham (1st), who played against each other on the same day.
Birmingham lost 3-1 to Chelsea who claimed the top spot, making it even more important for the Ladies to grab the win and move up to 2nd.
The Reds dominated the majority of the game, not giving Notts County a single moment of peace. Charge after charge, but it just did not seem like Liverpool’s day as Dowie and Schroder missed some open chances. And it all felt like the game was going to end 0-0.
Until the 73rd minute when Beard substituted Zelem for Longhurst. Her first touch on the ball resulted in a goal. Probably the most important goal that the Ladies have scored this season. A foul on Davison saw the Ladies win a penalty, until it was cancelled.
The Ladies now sit on the 2nd, just two points behind leaders Chelsea. And one point above Birmingham who have two games in hand.
Four more games of the current season remain, with the ladies playing away at Everton next on 4th September.

"wow you’re a fan of bayern and you’re from canada?"
What you’re saying sounds like this to me:
- You can’t like anime; you’re not Japanese!
- You can’t like K-Pop; you’re not Korean!
- You can’t like British TV shows; you’re not British!
I’m not a “true fan” because I don’t live in Germany? News flash! If clubs don’t want any “glory hunters” or foreign fans (as you imply that all foreign fans are glory hunters), why is the Bundesliga broadcasted to 204 countries all around the world? Hmm… last time I checked, 203 of those countries weren’t Germany!
"you’re just a fucking glory hunter whos only a fan bc they win smh."
I really doubt that people from China will start supporting Derby County. Fans are fans because they want a team to win. Therefore, it’s only logical to start supporting a club because of its success. However! It’s during the club’s losses and falls that you get to see who the “true fan” is. The ones that don’t support them anymore, preferring to switch to a “better” team, are the glory hunters, not the ones who start supporting a successful club.
"and you’re not a true football fan. you’re too ashamed to even support your own local team"
So what do you define as a “true football fan”? My local team is the Vancouver Whitecaps. I don’t like them, but I don’t dislike them either. It’s actually much easier for me to watch them play and support them – jerseys and merchandise are everywhere. And I mean everywhere. And people will actually know their name. But I don’t support them. Why? Is it that hard to understand that I don’t enjoy watching them play?
Support is earned by the clubs, and not the other way around.
A “true football fan”, by my definition, is one who jumps for joy after their team’s wins, and feels the hurt after a loss.
And if you go around playing judge and calling people fake fans, I think you’re the one who needs evaluate whether you’re a “true football fan” or not.
And if Michael Brown was not angelic, I was practically demonic. I had my first drink when I was 11. I once brawled in the cafeteria after getting hit in the head with a steel trash can. In my junior year I failed five out of seven classes. By the time I graduated from high school, I had been arrested for assaulting a teacher and been kicked out of school (twice.) And yet no one who knew me thought I had the least bit of thug in me. That is because I also read a lot of books, loved my Commodore 64, and ghostwrote love notes for my friends. In other words, I was a human being. A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.
The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth. Consider how easily living in a community “with rough patches” becomes part of a list of ostensible sins. Consider how easily “black-on-black crime” becomes not a marker of a shameful legacy of segregation but a moral failing.
