St. Mirren ladies team

Recommended Posts


The more I think about the Buddie Burds the more I like it.

Once the female of the species has its more deadly than the male team up and running this will provide real opportunities for all involved to develop within the game.

For example opportunities will exist for those players wishing to develop in the coaching side of the game.  Young coaches will get opportunities with the Burds and young Burd coaches will get opportunities with the male squads.  All in all our fantastic, wonderful and cutting edge club will have a larger, more experienced pool of coaches available along with real opportunity for players from either sex to develop in a coaching capacity.  What's not to like?

 

I tell you this forum user's as previously alluded to the day when we have a female playing in the famous black and white stripes (men's team) is fast approaching.  The day when we have a female manager of the men's team is fast approaching, the day when the men's teams is back to being called the first team well that is already here as it always has been. 

 

All of this is good news as we venture forward into a fairer, more equal society.  Again though the Christmas night out will be fraught with danger.

Reading this thread, it would appear I am the only one who couldn't care less about a ladies team.

Could the money wasted on this, not go elsewhere ?

 

How do you know that money is being wasted? Can it not be self funding?

I don’t and won’t watch Ladies football, but surely, money spent on a Ladies team is as equally well spent on the men’s team ?

I don’t see how every £1 spent on men’s football is worth more than every £1 spent on women’s football.

I’m proud that we are covering youth/men’s/women’s football

Excellent news.

If there is honestly an interest from the Renfrewshire female (still ok to say that?) population to form a ladies team, then best of luck with the initiative.

How long before SMISA are asking people to pony up some money for this?

I can assure you that you are most definitely not the only one!

it appears to me that a great many on here in their rush to be right on, modern thinking and diversity aware (all commendable of course), have neglected to notice that women’s fitba is completely and utterly shite. 

Back garden and curtains spring to mind.

Aye but there’s a fair few lassies that could run rings round you with a ball whilst blindfold.

The vast majority of womens sport is of course of a lower pace and level of athleticism if compared to men given the physical differences between the genders. There is also a massive disparity in pay in most women's sports that mean sports are mainly taken on as a pass time rather than a legitimate profession. 

The mistake that several make is to compare men's sport to women's sport rather than just judge it on its own merits. 

Whilst I don't go out my way to watch it, much like I don't go out my way to watch most matches I have no attachment to, Women's football has improved hugely in the last 10 years. There's nothing 'right on' or modernly diverse about making that factual observation. It will continue to do so as well. Let their game develop at its own pace and find its own level to be judged at rather than box an entire gender into 'its shite'

It'll be interesting to see how this goes as, even at the top clubs, there's little appetite.

The standard is shite but it'll be an outlet for some and certainly won't do any harm, as long as it's not a drain on the real team.

Surely to feck SMISA won't be asked to pump money into this venture?

In my time at Smisa i highlighted the 'no-brainer' , that considering half the population of Renfrewshire is made up of women, wouldn't it make good business, inclusivity,community sense for the club to form a ladies team. Have to say never mind the wider support, their wasnt much appetite among committee members to get involved.

so good to see Kenny & co bringing the interested parties together to get it off the ground. Looking forward to the 'debate' when/if Smisa put a funding request for the ladies team to the £2 pot vote!

Its going to tie a few in knots that want to give the club any funds it asks for! Dont know if the ladies team will be looking for Matchballs funding, but somebody might need to grow a pair!

It's not gender, it's sex. Apparently there is a long list of genders that you can be, it can even be fluid, again, apparently.

Don't ask me, I don't make the rules, I just ignore them. :)

Are the ladies eligible to play for the real team or are we only able to sign them during a transfer window?

 

I ask as it is surely a matter of time before we see women play alongside the men.  We wouldn't be the first, we really would not!

 

Anyway my prediction is this...the first wummen to turn out for our first team will be big, called Betty and play at centre half!

 

 

I don't know if you are joking or not but actually there is absolutely no physical reason why women cannot play alongside men in the same team. If a woman is good enough she should be able to be called into the main squad.

Can you think of any reason why that might be?

How good do you think mens football was in the 1880s?

Taking Betty out of the equation, I don't see the joke element.

 

A big thunder thighed ginger called "Betty fae Glenburn" is my prediction!
