If that is the case, i think it's pretty unfair to expect the women to right the wrongs of the men's game at their own expense. Like I don't think female athletes should see their salaries severely limited as a result of some weird ideological experiment they didn't ask to be part of. Professional salaries over here don't leave enough for the women to have their long term security guaranteed after retirement. If the very top players have clubs who think they're worth it, they should be entitled to earn it. I can sort of understand why they have the cap if the reasoning is that they don't want one or two clubs to dominate in England, but it still seems unfair on the players. And even though they might be preventing teams dominating over here, we're just seeing it happen on a European level instead with the English teams unable to push on to the very top even though a couple of them have the resources to do it. Historically the FA have sold the women short and even took action to deliberately hold the game back and it seems they're repeating the same mistakes again. It's definitely holding the women's game back over here when the top clubs can't hold onto their top english players. Surely they'll have to have a rethink soon.
