MY THOUGHTS ON THE GAME
A brilliant couple of weeks in the league for Blues Women after the huge win against Bristol City their followed it up against Blackburn Rovers and more importantly the difference is finally solid after the disappointment’s against London City conceding 3 goals in that game the coaches Darren & Jo have finally found a formula to get the defence solid again and there should take all the credit for that .
PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Have to go for Siobhan Wilson after her free kick amazing and she fully deserves it.
