Chin Up, Ladies, You've Done Us Proud!


Recommended Posts

Today, an exciting and dramatic final day of the FA Women's Super League was a great advert for women football, but it held heart-ache for Chelsea Ladies FC who finished second behind Liverpool on goal difference after a painful shock 2-1 defeat to Manchester City.

The Blue ladies went into the match on top of the table and with the knowledge that a win would give them their first ever title. Manchester City, on the other hand, sat just second from bottom. But a poor first half saw the Chelsea ladies go into the break down by two goals. In the second half, Gilly Flaherty clawed one back for the Blues, but the girls could not find the all important equalizer despite great pressure late on in the match. The result left the following disappointing look to the final table:


Though it maybe little consolation now, anyone in the team would have considered a second place finish a huge success at the start of the season. Emma Hayes, the only female manger in the league, has insisted throughout the season that a top four finish is her season objective (in Mourinho-esque style I might add!).

Hayes' side has overachieved throughout this season. The team that has only been in the top flight for four seasons, had finished second to bottom last season. Aside from the leap from seventh place, the second place finish also means that the girls qualify to next season's Women Champions League.

Overall, Chelsea Ladies FC's season has been very exciting and promising and an important step in the right direction. So, chins up ladies, you've done the millions of Blues around the world very proud.
