Is everyone aware that Chelsea Women are playing Tottenham Hotspur Women in the opening fixture of the new WSL season? The game takes place at Stamford Bridge on Sunday 8th September. The club has said that they are expecting an attendance of 41,000 and all tickets were allocated some weeks ago. Yesterday however it was announced that there had been some returns so more tickets are on offer.

This seems a perfect opportunity for anyone who has never seen Chelsea Women play, to take in a game.

Stunning strike !

I LOVE our womens team!!!  :wub:

One of my biggest regrets in life was my massive growth spurt at 13, 14 years old (went from 1.70m or so to 1.83m in a little over a year and a half)  that fucked up my knees and forced me out of footie (not that my scrawny arse could have coped with higher level balling)

That's tall for a fourteen year old girl ! 6ft in old money. I was the same height, attaining 187cm, hence played in defence mostly -but always saw myself a s midfield general :P

One thing I have noticed recently or maybe it's been going on for years, the very first competitive game for my school team in the mid 70's from the kick off you were told you always had to pass the ball forward and from a goal kick you couldn't pass to someone in the 18 yard box. When did the rules change?. I bet there's a lot of fans on here who are to young to remember that the keeper could pick the ball up from a backpass.:)

There were some earnest geeky looking guys going into SB for a womens game - and a bunch of guys coming out the pub started singing it at them. Totally un PC I know but so funny :D

Best chant I've heard of recently was believe it or not from those blockheads West Ham, Fulham who's fans have to be the poshest in London West Ham started singing '' Does your butler know your here ?'' :)

GETTING TO KNOW CHELSEA WOMEN: MAGDALENA ERIKSSON

https://www.chelseafc.com/en/news/2019/10/16/getting-to-know-chelsea-women--magdalena-eriksson?cardIndex=2-1

 

Chelsea Women are underway with our 2019/20 campaign and in our new feature, we will be speaking to all of Emma Hayes’ squad to get to know them a bit better on and off the pitch.

Captain Magdalena Eriksson, who has been a Chelsea player since the start of 2017, tells us which team-mates she sits next to in the dressing room and what she does in her spare time…

How would you describe your playing style?

Aggressive, a tough defender who tries to be calm and composed with the ball.

Who was your favourite footballer growing up and why?

It was Carles Puyol, the defender who was at Barcelona, I really liked his style. He played with his heart and he went in for every tackle, was always reliable and was a leader.

What is your biggest achievement?

It’s hard to pick just one. All the trophies I have won at club and national team level means so much but I think coming here and winning the double was a massive achievement for me personally.

Who do you sit next to in the dressing room?

I sit at the end of row and I have Ann [Katrin Berger] on my inside. On matchdays we sit in number order so I have Adelina [Engman] usually and Fran [Kirby] on the other side.

Who do you sit with on away trips and what do you do to pass the time?

We have tables in the coaches so it’s usually me, Jonna [Andersson], Maria [Thorisdottir] and Maren [Mjelde]. The Scandies tend to sit close to each other and last time it was me Jonna and Guro [Reiten] and we played a game on our phones that we could play all together which was quite nice to pass the time.

What is the one thing you can’t live without?

I am not going to say my phone (laughs). I have a lip balm from Sweden, every time I go back to Sweden I buy the lip balm and I think I’m addicted to it and need to have it close to me all the time.

pure guess, but I am fairly sure she is talking about

Hudsalve Forsvaret (which was developed by the military here in the 1950's and is so so so good (jummi vanilla)

or Lypsyl (which is the best selling one here), although that you can find it in London fairly easily
