Have to be honest, this whole 'Nations League' seems pointless to me, especially at the end of a long season.

 I agree with that - I felt for Ukraine, Wales, Scotland who played massive World Cup matches and then had to play loads

of nations league.

Yay, Armenia 1 Scotland 4. We're back 

I tend to agree with quite a few folk I have heard saying the Nations League has actually in general perhaps been better than folk first expected. But the timing of this group of matches is awful.

Re Ukraine, I still mainly feel sorry for them that they had to play back to back World Cup play-off games and Wales ( and in particular Bsle and Ramsey ) didn't, because their SF vs Austria was played as originally scheduled in March.

Thought it worth posting some congratulations to the Lionesses for their victory yesterday. What a terrific achievement.

Did enjoy the Tweet I saw this morning which says:

Men: Footballs coming home!! Its coming home!! Its coming!!

Women - 60yrs later: FFS Ill get it myself.

Great scenes and well done the England team for winning this!

Enjoyed following their journey this past few weeks and hope it really helps women's football kick on and inspire many younger girls to take up the game!!

I went to the season opener for Harrogate Town at the weekend, with my son and Dad (3 generations together, seated though to allow for my old man who is 82).

Great performance from Town, 3-0 against Swindon. Crowd though was poor at around 1900 and really disappointing for the opening match - and Swindon had 600 of those.

We are second now in the one match played table - nonetheless, good start and I would happily take that at season end if offered; the bookies have Town as favourites to go down or be very close to going down, so anything better will be a bonus.

 In general I accept that in professional sport you push the boundaries and I have some degree of acceptance of this  But I have to admit, in comparison to the men's gane, it was great to see so much less simulation and feigning of injuries in this tournament. I do hope this doesn't markedly change with time.

The overall quality has so improved over the last decade.

Well done to England, a team of different personalities that it was very difficult not to like

 With Rachel Daly in the team, we do of course claim this as a triumph for the hotbed of footie that is Harrogate !

Interesting to see that the top women players can earn upto 200k a year from their club and another 30k from internationals.

That is without persnal endorsements and commercial interests which will surely come in droves.
