Maj returns and gives a rundown of NPLW QLD, Steffen shares the latest Nordic updates, Dale loves DAZN and Cheryl is not sure about banning headers if it means short corners!
Lisa de Vanna's allegationsFor an informed opinion of the situation, we recommend the following Tracey Holmes's The Ticket and this article from Moya DoddIn no way do we intend to diminish the allegations, but to acknowledge that there are a number of elements to address.
Sam Kerr nominated for the Ballon d'OrA-Leagues referees announcedBanning headers?SigningsAround the WorldQueens of the Week
Eric - 1) Leicester City goalkeeper Kirstie Levell - she saved a Sam Kerr header with her face! 2) Manchester United forward Leah Galton, because her thigh is still intact after *that* foul by Georgia Stanway 3) Aston Villa defender Maz Pacheco for all of the below nutmegs
Steffen - Winonah Heatley produced a fascinating Day In The Life video
Canberra Olympic continues to make moves for 2022 with two further signings from Belconnen United, B90 Team of the Year wingback Vanessa Ryan and the experienced Nicole Jalocha. The club have now made six major offseason signings.
Cheryl gives a shout to ex-Melbourne Victory player Jessica Wik and Angela Christian-Wilkes for her MAL and WAL A-Leagues naming convention announced on The Far Post Pod.

Aston Villa (Emily Gielnik) 0-4 Arsenal (Steph Catley, Caitlin Foord, Lydia Williams) - Aston Villa coach Carla Ward prepared for the game by having her side play against 12 players, because that's how good Arsenal are! Full game for Catley, lively sub appearance for Foord, Gielnik and Williams didn't play
Reading 0-3 Everton - tough one for Reading, had to make two subs in the first half after injuries, Anna Anvegård held up Nicoline Sørensen's jersey after scoring, nice touch after Sørensen tore her ACL in the previous game
Manchester City (Alanna Kennedy, Hayley Raso) 0-2 West Ham (Mackenzie Arnold, Tameka Yallop) - shock win for West Ham, some key saves by Arnold, full game for Yallop, Kennedy was an unused sub and Raso wasn't on the team sheet
Leicester 0-2 Tottenham (Kyah Simon) - fairly comfortable win for Tottenham, Simon wasn't on the team sheet

The Philippines were trailing 1-0 in the dying minutes of their Asian Cup qualifier against Nepal, before Annis scored in the 90th minute and Wilson scored in the second minute of injury time, sealing a 2-1 victory.
Steffen - fun-loving Tillies - a timely reminder that even at the national team level it's important to have fun. It's the Australian way so kudos to the coaching team for recognising this.
