How are Bham City even in this league?   

Because they, unlike us, have taken it seriously for years, actually decades, whereas we've basically only started trying under the current ownership. Nobody to blame but ourselves for the fact they're better than us; hopefully we're on the way to fixing that now.

They were one of the founding members and a very good side who if it hadn't been for the all conquering arsenal side would have won the league

Some of England's best female players in the last decade were in a blues team unfortunately 

Now same as the men's City, utd and Chelsea have bought it, bayern are top of the german women's league (wolfsburg 2nd) psg are top of the French (lyon 2nd)

Blues were a very good team until the last couple of years as the womens game has stepped up financially and they can't compete with that now.

I actually went to see them in a Champions League Quarter Final the other year (of course cheering on the other team)

We were meant to play blues yesterday but game called off due to frozen pitch

It's a shame too, as I think we would've beat them this time. It could've been a historic moment for our women's team, the beginning of the tide turning in our favour.

Our game against Arsenal wall called off again, but Bristol City lost to Chelsea, meaning we retain our four point lead over them and now have two games in hand.

I see that this match against Arsenal is now today, and is in fact kicking off in 20 minutes. The Guardian have a live blog here: https://www.theguardian.com/football/live/2021/feb/28/aston-villa-v-arsenal-womens-super-league-live

I'm not sure if there's a way to watch it?

Halfway through the first half, and the game is going as you might have predicted . . . Arsenal having all of the ball, and Villa defending doggedly. Still 0-0 so far, but we haven't managed a period of possession yet.

Got to half time at 0-0, but Arsenal were cranking up the pressure in the last fifteen minutes, and Weiss had to make three good saves. It's hard to see what we can do much differently, unless we can find a way to get an out-ball when our defenders win possession.

However, 0-0 would be a decent result, and we're halfway there I guess.

Our next three games are Man Utd, Brighton, and Chelsea; Bristol City's next three games are Reading, Chelsea and Bham, so they might see that as chance to close the gap. Really could do with getting something from the game with Brighton. But then again both us and Bristol City are probably both just as likely to lose all three games, we're still above West Ham at the moment as well. One thing in our favor is that we still have a game in hand against Bham, which whilst they're probably a better team than us, is still a winnable game.

Lost 3-0 to Man Utd, as long as Chelsea beat West Ham we will stay tenth. Bristol City play Reading tomorrow if they win that, presuming West Ham lose today, then just two points will seperate the bottom three.

Bristol City beat Reading 3-2. Not good for us, now just two points clear of the relegation zone.

Really bad result for us. Ebony Salmon is such a talent (as we well know)

A win tonight against Brighton would come in handy. I think it's available to watch on the FA Player if you have a login. Bristol City play Man City, and West Ham who are currently bottom play small heath.
