Genuine answer is probably none league. ...3rd tier none league at that at best.

Had it been given a proper chance back in history to naturally flourish like the men's game, ladies football may well be on par or even at a "better standard" than men's football, today.

Seems some attitudes never change.
I think it should be equal rights then whoever is good enough. Should play at the highest level. Would be interesting to see how many women you would see in the prem. from what I’ve seen outfield play has come a long way but still lacking in speed. But the goalkeepers are awful. Not enough height and really poor shot stopping

Yep they reckon Venus Williams would normally be beaten by the top 1000 (1 thousand) ranked male tennis players, except if the guy was having a particularly bad day.

Speaking up for the girls - doesn't make women's tennis unwatchable, though. I used to love watching Chris Evert play when she was about 22, hands up who'd say no to that?

Nonsense.
Nonsense yes, physicality is the only difference and that cannot be changed and remains a constant (unless drugs are involved). But other aspects of the women’s game, such as skill and decision making is very different. If women were genetically altered to be the same as men, as a former professional coach of women’s varsity teams, I assure everyone on this post that women (if that’s what they would be when physically the same) would hammer men every time they played. Because the learning of women and assimilation of information, tactics etc is far superior to that of men in my experience. The problem is that people are making a direct comparison mens game v women’s and that can never be a direct comparison because the genetic differences in the genders.
The women's game has come on huge leaps and bounds. To the point where I will always watch the Lionesses play in Major competitions now. The great thing is, at the rate things are improving. The best is yet to come in the women's game.

However, I must say that the goalkeepers for some reason are absolutely shocking across the board. And I can't figure out why that would be?

Anyway, I'd pay to watch professionals who represent our great country. Regardless of gender

Nonsense.


Which part doesn't make sense to you? We'll try and explain it for you.

You don't seem to think there's biological athletic and physical differences between men and women when it's a fact that there is. Womens football would not be at the same standard or higher regardless of what you suggested.

Agreed, physiological differences, yes, assuming every male and every female are presumed to grow to their full physical potential and then compared only on that, but struggle to agree that this somehow relates to how good a standard of player in real world terms this produces. Comparing all the greatest ever male (and female) players shows a massive difference if only taking into account their "biological and physical" attributes. Surely, even if only comparing males with other males, there's more to any footballer than just physical potential. I'd take Pele, Owen or Vardy over Sol Campbell anyday in my starting 11.
