Another senior figure on the football operation side gone - seems all levels within the club are struggling with retention. She was also a trustee of Albion in the Community
There are only 14 players in the first team squad on the site ... and one of those is Maya Le Tissier, who said goodbye to the club on Twitter yesterday (again, silence from the club)
Le Tissier was a nominee for the WSL Young Player of the Season, so it's not good news that she's off.
Mental turnover of players in the squad after our best ever finish. Doesn't inspire much confidence really, feels like its very much a backwards step. I suspect relegation from the WSL is a MASSIVE blow for most women's teams, making relegation to the Championship seem trivial in comparison. Would be very odd to see the amount of work put in to promote this side of the game be hampered by comedically bad handling on the pitch with half our squad gone.
oh good god, this is a thread about the womens team, even if it was about the mens, you really need to give your head a wobble.Feels like the club as a whole is just suffering from complacency all round, you can't let all these people go without replacing them with good talent and expect us to replicate results, you have to reinvest some of the money you are making otherwise it'll bite you sooner or later. I fear for the mens team when we inevitably let Leo and Moises go in January for piles of money and make no additions, I fear for this womens team right now, they're in big trouble.
From my understanding he's spent a lot on their infrastructure. Less so in the squad it seems.I thought WSL was supposed to be amazing? A new era, huge crowds, incredible atmosphere etc? But all I hear on radio reports is Brighton Nil, the other team with a cricket score. Is it a bit more like Rugby ie everyone goes to Internationals but club sides lucky to get more than county league? What’s going on? I thought Tony put big money a side for this? And made big investment in?
We have our hands tied to a certain extent Swanny, we need the team back in Brighton at a venue that holds around 3-6 thousand. Crawley is a bind to get too, and the Amex is too big, my understanding from surveys sent out recently, is that the club are looking into it, that would certainly help if we moved the team back too Brighton. Sadly I think Hope has run out of time, we need to move on, I think Tony was hoping it would work out and Hope could be in charge when they finally get a permanent home in Brighton.From my understanding he's spent a lot on their infrastructure. Less so in the squad it seems.
Perhaps looking for a good model for how to run the women's team and just sticking with "just-enough-to-stay-up" investments and Powell for the time being.
Time for a change at the top. We have a top 6 budget but not the squad
