I though Lukaku at inter was almost a done deal by now
It looks like Inter are being patient. I know they put Icardi and another player on the transfer list. Conte is big fan of Lukaku. Can see him leaving because I don't think Old fancies him. Might be wrong about that.

Giving away £300k a week to young kids and a leader who cares more about his hair and trying to get a move? :unsure: bring on August 11th :p
A Man Utd way role model.

how much does the women's soccer players make per year ?? it has to be less than men, I imagine
I have no idea.

I can’t comment on the domestic leagues but the prize pools for World Cup should certainly be higher. Viewership during the WWC is very strong. 51 percent of the active TVs in France watched the USA France QF. Nobody watches the WNBA. Comparing apples and oranges.

Agree, only reason I tuned in was to watch Alex Morgan the hottie, she should make at least 5 million for winning the FIFA

The WWC is every four years, not every year. The players in NWSL are makings poverty wages. WNBA are actually making more. I propose the women have their federation like the WTA. HOw many NSWL matches have you seen?

Agree, how is Alex supposed to support her family with that kind of wages. She will have to go on food stamps. she needs more endorsements but soccer just isn't popular in USA so no mega buck commercials for her

I was only commenting on the World Cup purse not domestic leagues. The domestic leagues should only see pay increase if the viewership is increased. That I agree with. Given the viewership of the World Cup a purse increase there would be appropriate. Domestic women’s soccer leagues are very much in their infancy but it’s starting to get attention with teams like Manchester United and Real Madrid creating women’s clubs.

What do you guys think about COED world cup where men and women play together ? then maybe they will pay women more money ?

I’m all about girl power but they’d get destroyed in such an event lol.

I just know Rapinoes pay comments were largely based on Works Cup prize money and I’m inclined to agree given the tv ratings were very healthy,

Cristiano makes more in a week than all 5 yearly wage combined.

Well, close enough.
 
Lol. Can't believe US and Mexico didn't wanted to play in Copa America...
I mean I can. They enjoy the Gold Cup guppies. The fact USA win so much show how lowly the competition is in the Gold Cup event.

Pulisic is the only world class player we have. Somehow dinosaurs like Altidore and Bradley continue to get caps.
 
It's weird to see Altidore being a meme cause I only remember him playing Eredivisie and doing decent in it.
He’s still halfway decent and only 29 I admit I thought he was older he debuted when he was 16 that’s why he feels so old to me.

That said against anyone outside of the Gold Cup only Pulisic would be able to hang. We don’t have the Tim Howard buff anymore to make us respectable.

The women in the past lost to a bunch of 15 year olds. The women need their own federation. using the WTA as an example. We see how great Billie Jean King is.
15 year olds ?? that's high school ?? which high school team did they lose to ?? also they play mixed doubles and Wimbledon and all the majors,, and they seem to be ton of fun..

LMFAO!!!!!!!!! Is that for real? You almost had me spill ice scream all over.
Afraid so! I’d post a link, but the content might not be suitable for such a respectable establishment.

If you search for women’s squash prizes you’ll find plenty of articles. It was a Spanish event around March time.

Oh c'mon even the mods can't be that prudish! No nudity, no foul.

Here's a link:

Gotta love the club's initial "apology," expressing their regret that the women "felt aggrieved by the prizes." Yeah, that's exactly what was wrong with your choices.

The follow-up was better:

Obviously too little too late, given the "resignations." But seriously how tone-deaf can you possibly get? SMH

This victory was a detriment to the sport and our future national teams. From the fans to the players, really low class.

These women do not represent the flag they play for.

Please explain in what way its a detriment? Honestly, the other countries are catching up an they know it. I love Rapinoe, Morgan and the rest of them. its their moment.
