    If I recall, the FAWSL did it to align the league with the French, German, Spanish, Italian, and other top European leagues with a summer to spring calendar.

    Why, I don't know. However I get the feeling the English clubs felt they were at competitive disadvantage going into the quarter final rounds of the Champions League onwards as our teams were just soon out of pre-season and into their first few domestic matches. For the other leagues, their teams were in full fitness and in that final stretch of the season knowing the reward of trophies are in sight.

    The old scoreboard end at Maine Road was the coldest, windiest place I have ever been. Watched City labour against Argyle there, just to save sixpence !
    Me and about 3 others.

    As far as I recall they haven't mentioned the attendances for the last two games. I think there was a healthy crowd this afternoon and might have topped 1000+.

    Personally I think the crowds have dropped a bit , which is a pity as the women are the champions, fa cup & continental cup holders. Also the club have seemed too of eased up now letting people stand or sit , also having a bar area too, the food is not too bad ever. Maybe the switch from summer did make some stop coming , but football is a winter sport , and now it's in line with all the other women's leagues. Yes the stadium is cold , it look's nice and wouldn't be out of place in Spain or any other southern European countries, but not in our climate it's not that great !
     
  9. From my untrained eye Id agree. I'd say 1200 at best today.

    Started selling beer there if that could entice some.
