Congratulations to Manchester City they really deserve to win the title. Unbeaten in 15 games with one to go to finish the season unbeaten.
Now the other teams will have to regroup and think of the way to challenge the citizens.
First, there is no doubt that having a huge budget and infrastructure is the way forward and other clubs should try to follow suit if they want to compete… or not.
The City model should not the single business model to follow to be succesful. I mean not every team can have the same level of resources offered to them.
Hopefully the FA do not want all WSL1 teams to be funded by their parent men’s club with millions of pounds spent.
Alternative business model should be allowed and able to flourish, although finding money via sponsorship and else is certainly difficult.
I would hope that FA WSL teams would follow Leicester City’s Premier League lead and build up a squad through clever recruitement with players that complement each other.
Then it is just a question of developing the team’s football via a solid gameplan and stick to it.
And for those who think City bought the title simply by spending money and nothing else. I can only say this another side had quite a bit of money and were nowhere near winning the title.
They actually were out of it by matchday 3. Money does not buy titles but it certainly contributes in a positive way. It’s up to the other sides to find a way to compete either with more money or better ideas.
