Manchester shuns women’s sports

Manchester United have been accused of undermining the progress of women’s football by steadfastly refusing to launch a female team of their own.

Okay, so it’s the Daily Mail, but it was also covered in The Bleacher Report.

Maybe they’re just afraid of these guys (the U.S. team):

Or maybe, more likely, they have some clear ideas about “women’s place”. After all, Manchester does not ignore women completely. Here is the new fan shirt for women that plunges at the neck, according to The Guardian, “deepened and widened so that it carves out a space between the wearer’s breasts… The signage is clear: she likes football, but you can still appreciate her for her tits.”
