A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in August 2018:
From the Wikipedia entry on Manchester United WFC:
Manchester United Women Football Club is a professional football club based in the Salford suburb of Broughton, Greater Manchester, England, that will compete in the FA Women’s Championship from 2018, the second tier of English women’s football…
In March 2018, Manchester United announced their intentions to form a women’s football team. Manchester United Women Football Club were founded on 28 May 2018, following the club’s successful application to join the newly-formed 2018–19 FA Women’s Championship.
So, MUWFC is a “professional” football club, is it? Rubbish! In their first game, yesterday, MUWFC beat Liverpool Ladies FC 1:0, in Liverpool (please, try to curb your excitement). Click on the video clip titled “The first-ever goal for United women” in their section of the Manchester United FC website – here. Not a spectator in sight. Interest in women’s football is close to zero, as we see from empty stands even for the women’s national team’s games. Yet the BBC in particular gives women’s sports outrageously high coverage.
There’s no way the women’s game can possibly be “professional”. It’s amateur, and kept alive only by being a financial parasite on the men’s game.
