Watford Rise


#onandoffthepitchpodcast #barclayswc #barclayswsl


In this week podchat, we float over the results of the Barclays Women's Championship. We see Watford Rise off the bottom of the league by scoring two goals against the mighty Durham. Reading do whats required and get a much needed win. LCL and Lewes find out things are just a tad tough...but this is still time. Things at the bottom of the league is going to be feisty.


Charlton grab a point late on and Sheffield United go big with the goals.


In the BarclaysWSL the usual teams win and in one game the referee decides to fill the void left by #VAR to provide Chelsea with some much needed lucky penalties.


#premierleague rumours - Jose M needs to stay away from the league. Does he remember all of the horrible things people stated when he tried to ring order to Manchester United.


Brighton Women see their manager Mel Phillips leave - was this a good move by the heirarcy?


Sheffield United Women remove J Morgan from his position with the emergence of 'new information' . So many questions.
