    The Lionesses

    How refreshing to see the England women getting interviewed.

    Totally relaxed, enjoying each others company and looking forward to the game.

    So unlike the men's team, who always sound and look so guarded, full of standard cliched responses and looking as if they can't wait to get away and look at the latest adverts for pimping up their Bentleys.

      Got an immense task on their hands beating the Japanese women. If they somehow get through the semi-final they will have truly put those pampered Premier League knobs in their place.

      Absolutely - the men's team is populated by complete and utter wan*ers.

      Very much this. Japan look a bang tidy side, punchy and skilful. If England can compete with them and win, that would be a fantastic effort, especially as they are 10/3 at some bookies.

      Completely agree. I think the key difference is that they actually all seem to;

      a) want to be there
      and
      b) be enjoying themselves

      I don't think I can remember the last time it seemed the same attitude was on show in the men's camp. Odd, considering the immense amount of pandering they seem to get.

      The men get interviewed every day of the week, it's no surprise they come back with stock responses, anybody would, plus they're very regulated by their clubs about what the can and can't say. I'd rather watch the women though.

      I don't have a problem with the stock responses and the fact that they have all attended media training.

      The England women have broadly the same training about what and what not to say to the media.

      The BIG difference is that the men appear to have completely lost sight of what it means to be involved with England and more crucially, what role they have to play as ambassadors for their sport.

      Some people do have the imagination to say different things you know.

      Of course you wouldn't. If you are asked the same questions 10 times a day, you just bat it back without thinking. Now, if the journos asked imaginative and different questions, maybe you'd get interesting answer.

      They already have to my mind just with their attitude to playing for their national team and their determination to get a positive result.
