Chelsea Women awarded Barclays FA WSL title and Aston Villa win Women’s Championship : WomensSoccer

Well there it is.

Chelsea get the title, but there will always be an asterisk attached, it was far from over. Villa get promotion, which they totally deserved, they were surely going to win the Championship. Liverpool get relegated, which feels very harsh, there was nothing inevitable about that if the season had continued.

Having said that major changes are needed at Liverpool now. Jepson has to go, say what you like about the lack of funding compared to the big sides, but there is no excuse for getting relegated with the squad of players she had available. And above her I think the decision makers need to reassess what they actually want from a women’s team, it seems over the past few years they’ve wanted the good PR of running a professional women’s team while spending the least amount of money possible to get it, but getting relegated from the top division while their Premier League rivals dominate it is not such a good look.
