This is a man’s world, but it wouldn’t be anything without a woman…
Football is the most watched sport on this great green Earth, and although it’s considered a man’s game, believe it or not, women also play a beautiful game.
Arsenal LFC’s is one of the most successful professional sides in the UK.
The Gunners are currently half way through the 2011 fixture list in the women’s Super League. The team sits second in the league, four points and a game in hand behind leaders, Birmingham LFC, and a point ahead of London rivals, Chelsea LFC.
The women’s Super League is not the only trophy the Gunners have been chasing after wrapping up yet another triumph in the FA Women’s Cup.
The FA Cup has been a regular jaunt for Arsenal having won the tournament 11 times, including in last year’s 2010/11 campaign following their overhaul of Bristol Ladies Academy in a 2-0 Final victory.
With the FA Cup in the bag, the focus can be aimed on claiming the inaugural Super League trophy. Focus is essential with Chelsea hot on their heels, and a four point gap between the Gunners and Birmingham.
As the midway break is upon us, some of the Arsenal Ladies’ focus can’t be switched off as international duty calls. Ellen and Faye White, Rachel Yankey and Steph Houghton are all called up to the England squad representing Arsenal Ladies FC in this summer’s World Cup in Germany.
As a possible double success looms for the Arsenal Ladies, maintaining focus seems to be the best key to achieve brilliant success, while putting shame on the six-year men’s trophy drought.
