    The woman who's been appointed by our club to edit the new 'women's' section (no doubt being paid well to do so), writes for the Daily Mail. Here's an example of how she views women:

    When Newsnight's Emily Maitlis asked me during a debate on the programme this week whether I was a feminist, I hoped my blow-dried hair and figure-hugging dress would give her some clue as to the answer.

    Feeling a little mischievous, I was tempted to ask her whether I looked like one of those grumpy women in bad clothes who spend their days in a state of agitation about whether it's right to let girls play with dolls.

    Massive own-goal by the club.

    I think we agreed that after she said she would dangle me by my balls from that big church spire in Barca

    You can read that several different ways , perhaps she is just saying she is confident in her own femininity

    Regardless, it's pretty offensive to think that the only way to get women interested in football is to tell them how to make the players' favourite dishes, or talk about One Direction.

    But I suppose this is the same club whose female clothing range is 99.9% pink and glittery.

    How times have changed........................................thinks back to first game against Leicester in 1977, stood on the Kippax near the fencing which separated us from away fans I can't even remember seeing a woman in there let alone thinking about recipes.

    I've been going since the mid-90s and you see a lot more women now than 20 years ago, so not sure why the club felt the need to do this.

    Judging by Twitter, it's backfired big time.

    Very true, although the ratio is still low

    Thats the crux Rammy. You never saw women or young girls at footy and look now.

    I did a coach to Palace away last game of the season when they played the rags in the cup final. There was 1 girl on the coach and the lads watched porn videos all the way there and back. If I did it now there would probs be 15 -20 girls on the coach.

    Footy is better for them being there, its no less passionate but nowadays it just feels so much better.

    Football itself is a special male section.
