Toni Duggan tells a story about meeting Pep Guardiola at Man City and desperately wishing he would leave her alone. Anyway, he's done lots of work with Man City Women and that's impacted an England team who can keep possession with the world's best

And if you think it does, you have to question why you see men's anything (measures, standards, etc) as the benchmark. That's the crux of the debate. Does football and its dimensions have to be universal? IDK, but the act of questioning that isn't bad provided it's done properly

I'm not particularly fussed whether goals are made smaller for women. But the "pushing the game forward" / backwards narrative is very dangerous. To discuss how women's bodies might differ from men's and question the status quo does/should not push women's rights back 200 years

When I left he went, "I want to see that smile one more time before you go. Come back tomorrow Katie." Am now utterly convinced it was a marketing ploy

Not sure how your night is going but this waiter has just told me I have nice eyes, a sweet heart and has brought me four shots on the house. Which is fine but I don't drink and it's like PAINT STRIPPER

I said from the beginning I don't know where I stand on it - I just felt we should be allowed to have this discussion without feeling that do so risks pushing women's rights back xx years or harming the women's game. Goal sizes might be fine but let's discuss it without fear

It's an interesting debate, anyway. I think the quality of some (not all!) of the comments, at least on my tweet, has been good and it's got people talking. Nice speaking Eni

This is the crux of the whole argument, isn't it? You read The Data Gap? () Illuminates the extent of the issue. I agree it could go too far but it's worth just seeing how often and where the male body is the norm and its impact

status quo needs changing isn't sexist. To suggest it and consider it and discuss it isn't sexist. If you do it without nuance and respect it might become sexist. Emma's argument wasn't like that - she was looking at the Opta data and asking what it indicates about women's bodies

I don't think it is sexist to say: "Male and female bodies are different - shall we at least have a discussion?" in the same way I think the fact women rarely talk about the effect of menstruation on performance at work might be a bad thing. To just discuss whether the (1/2)
