  • Why is Ladies patronising?
  • The women who play in the women's first team, women's reserve team and the women's Development Team, play in the FA Women's Premier League, the FA Women's Cup, the FA Women's Premier League Cup, the FA Women's Premier League Reserve Southern Division and the FA Women's Premier League Reserve Cup. Some have gone on to represent England in the England women's national team.

    Why, therefore, should they change thir name to "Ladies"?

    The word "ladies" in and of itself isn't necessarily patronising. But for blokes to decide that Ladies "sounds better" and suggesting it should be imposed is the essence of patronising. It's their football club; so it's not for blokes to tell them what to do with their name.

    But it's good that the women's team is able to generate interest. Particularly today, when one of Charlton WFC's big rivals has become the first football club in the world to equalise pay between its men's and women's teams.
  • Yes Lewes, of course CAFC and Charlton Women are two separately owned entities.

    They really need some help as does the woman's game in general, so even if you can't sponsor or anything, when the fixtures are out try and pop to a game (home us usually a Sunday 2pm at Thamesmead), there's a bar and great chips (more than 14 :wink: ). The standard is very good & often a win is achieved!!

    Without going into too many specific details, what sort of costs are sponsorships?

    I'm still finalising details but likely to be:

    Full player sponsorship is £250, 2x tickets, signed shirt end of season, sponsorship advertised on Twitter, women's website, CAFC website, meet the team etc etc

    Can probably do smaller package for less or Can do a group buy on CL!

    Ladies is in no way patronising. Lady is a polite or formal way of referring to a woman.

    Exactly, they're not called Woman Boys are they.
    Depends what you (accidentally) type in when searching on Pornhub.
  • Not sure anyone saw this...

    Without a single goal from Kit Graham...

    Kit is a leading goal scorer at this level, however the squad has been strengthened over the summer so there are other strikers to take some of the strain.

    It's set to be an exciting season so I'd encourage people to get to a game If they can.

  • Good to see Bromley Addicks sponsored player Hope Nash get a goal.
  • Since Little Britain , 'Ladies' always conjures up a very specific image for me.
  • Excuse my ignorance, but is it possible for the women's team to earn promotion to the super league or whatever the top division is called, or is that a closed shop and CAFC are stuck at this level?

    Yes it is.

    The winner of the Premier Division South have a play-off against the winner of the Premier Division North. The winner of that gets promoted to the Super League.

    Last season Tottenham beat Blackburn 3-0 at The Valley to gain promotion.

  • Some might say Swindon were 'Finding Dorey' too much to handle.

    Maybe women/ladies should decide if it's political correctness gone mad. I doubt many of them will give you clump if you call it ladies football though.
    But it's been call women's football for donkey's years.

    James Marrs doesn't appear to have stayed very long. Announced at CAWFC on 11th July, and then at WHU Ladies on the 19th. I presume it's the same person, but Charlton don't get a mention.

    Not sure if this includes our team or not, but as I have just seen it, I thought it may help for information
