G-Man Posted June 22, 2004 Share Posted June 22, 2004 Originally posted by G-Man I’ve been watching W-league soccer for the last 5 years and the Women's National team for longer than that. After watching the Fury dismantle Boston I have to say that right now the Fury are probably the best women's team I have ever seen play at the club level including WUSA. Technically and tactically they are heads above the opposition that I’ve seen (this before the Montreal game)this year. They actually play the ball through the midfield and build an attack with speed and skill. No knock here, but they look like a top men's team. They play the game that our National teams should be playing. And to an extent it sickens me when I do see our national teams play the style they do. The U-19's had problems stringing two passes together and let's not forget our WNT failure to Mexico. The Fury drive home the point of what women’s soccer can be, while our national teams just drive people away from the game. The W-league is evolving into a good league. It’s great to see Sudbury and Montreal back into the loop. And hopefully London will add to the mix next year. Progressive soccer is hip again. It’s a shame out national team is stuck in 1994. It's a shame that the W-league games aren't shown on TV inplace of our national teams route one soccer. Here's to the Fury coach being our National Team coach, so I can stop cringing. And one last thing Diana Matheson is wasted by Pellerud. This kid can play the ball. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
