Match Day 9
Bristol v Man City
Liverpool v Chelsea
So after matchday 9 : Birmingham will have played 7 games and stay on 17 points.
Chelsea will have played 9 games and added to their 14 points.
Liverpool will have played 9 games and added to their 12 points.
One of those 2 teams might be top of the League come Matchday 10 when Birmingham are finished with their 2nd mid –season monthly break…
You do wonder why the FA did NOT plan the mid season break now, so that every team gets it at the same time. And seriously the mid-season break after 4 games out of 14 ? The person who designed the schedule likes asymmetrical things surely.
Man City will have played 9 games and added to their 9 points.
Bristol will have played 9 games and added to their 10 points.
Arsenal will have played 8 games and added to their 7 points.
Notts County will have played 8 games and added to their 6 points.
Everton will have played 8 games and added to their 2 points.
Overall it means, there will be a certain number of fixtures to be added to the current schedule and we will see the same rubbish fixture pile-up as at the end of last season.
I still remember Everton and Bristol suffered with the competition that became a survival of the fittest mixed with get lucky with the Russian roulette schedule, rather than a football competition. Can someone sort this kind of trouble next season or will we have a 5th disorganised FA WSL season in a row.
