    Brains on seats for Man United’s epic comeback and Emma Hayes’ return!

    The WSL put on a cracking set of fixtures this week, as Man United stole three points from under Arsenal’s noses at the Emirates - Chloe Morgan vindicated!
    She’s joined by Rachel and freelance journalist Tim Stillman to look over that game, welcome Emma Hayes back to the Chelsea dugout in front of their record-breaking crowd and look ahead to the Champions League’s return!

    Diversity across English women’s football

    Diversity across English women’s football

    Chloe and Rachel are joined by Dulwich Hamlet centre-back Ceylon Andi Hickman after Sarina Wiegman n’ co extended their unbeaten streak to 25 games! Just the 123 goals scored in that run, no big deal.
    We look over the Lionesses’ win against Japan before focusing on issues of diversity and inclusion within women’s football after Beth Mead’s recent comments. Ceylon talks about a lack of access to opportunities she’s seen through her work with Football Beyond Borders, while Chloe discusses her experiences as a mixed-race player in our still largely inaccessible sport.

    Chelsea put the league on notice and Nations League 101

    Chelsea put the league on notice and Nations League 101

    We did say, Man United: if you come for the kings, you best not miss. Unfortunately they did, while Chelsea emphatically did not - the Blues' 3-1 win at the weekend reminded us of the difference between title contenders and hopefuls.
    Chloe and Rachel are joined by Rachel's wife & GirlsontheBall co-founder Sophie Downey to look over that, a chaotic nine-goal thriller at West Ham and the women's debut of *drumroll*... the Nations League! Confusing rules aplenty!

    Hope Powell leaves Brighton and Man United’s first big test

    Hope Powell leaves Brighton and Man United’s first big test

    Chloe, Rachel and Jessy Parker Humphreys head to the studio to discuss the WSL’s first managerial casualty, as Hope Powell leaves Brighton after their poor start. We wonder where it’s all gone wrong and what Brighton can expect next.
    We also check in with another cracking Arsenal week - even if Jonas Eidevall has found something to moan about - and we look ahead to this weekend’s seismic clash between Man United and Chelsea! Can United make the jump?

    Imperious Champions League performances and the NWSL playoffs

    Rachel and Chloe are joined by journalist Jessy Parker-Humphreys to celebrate England's inevitable rise to Champions League glory after Arsenal's crushing win over Lyon. YES WE SAID IT.
    Okay, maybe a touch premature. After great weeks for Arsenal and Chelsea, we turn our attention to the NWSL playoffs. We're joined by Jeff Kassouf, founder of The Equalizer and ESPN contributor, to discuss a wild post-season that climaxes this weekend as the Portland Thorns take on Kansas City Current in the final!

    WSL scraps and our Champions League preview

    WSL scraps and our Champions League preview

    Chloe and Rachel are joined by DAZN’s Alex Ibaceta to look over the latest from the WSL and around the continent. Man City’s 4-0 win has garnered little sympathy for boss Gareth Taylor, while West Ham’s win over Aston Villa was overshadowed by some nasty afters!
    Elsewhere, we welcome the start of another Beth Mead Revenge Tour after missing out on the Ballon d’Or and we look ahead to the Champions League’s return this week!
