    Considering how well followed the golden girls are right now, and of course following on from their fantastic promotion to the top division in the WFL, it seems sensible to have a thread where all things golden girls can be discussed. Now I do know we had one a while back, but I cannot be bothered to find it and most of that information is probably obsolete now anyway. If anybody can get hold of their fixture schedule we can paste it into this thread so we can also track how their season is going.

    We've had such a gloomy past five seasons with the mens team, and last season at least the ladies gave us something to be proud for.

    Just to be that guy, they changed their name to 'Watford FC Women' a few seasons ago - might be worth changing the thread name.

    Sad to see 'Uncle Ron', who many are so enamored with, choosing to criticise the excellent mural of Helen Ward at the stadium.

    It's a lovely touch, and a fitting tribute to a Watford legend. Delighted for Helen to have such a satisfying end to her career, with the scenes at the weekend.

    I agree, for somebody who likes to speak his mind a lot perhaps keeping some thoughts to himself isn't a bad idea, especially when it's towards legends of the game. He is entitled to his view, no denying that, but picking and choosing when to express it is just as important.

    I think it started with his bizarre obsession about the club releasing its meaningless retained list. A few people replied suggesting maybe the club weren't going to publish it on or around the women's team's big weekend. And then it just sort of spiralled from there and he's spent a few days now going on and on and on about the pointlessness of the club communicating about the women's team, which they've done a lot the past few days, rather than addressing the stuff he sees as important. He also started a petty poll about the Helen Ward mural.

    That's about it really. I don't follow him but he comes up on my broader thread because other Watfordy people do and it all just looks a bit childish.

    Seems to me infantile to have a go at a tribute to someone who has been an exemplary professional.

    We've had very little good news of late and let's face it it's going to get worse come tomorrow. Plenty else to moan at other than a woman who's given her all and been rewarded with a mural if not the riches of Croesus.

    He’a certainly become more irrational the last 3 weeks or so. Used to like reading/listening to his views first half of the season but he’s gone off the rails recently.

    I have not renewed my season ticket, I will be watching the ladies play next reason, far more entertaining and rewarding.

    Some top level trolling of this guy by the club as I see they have announced who isnt being retained for the Women's team yet still nothing about the mens team.

    New campagin kicks off weekend of August 26th / 27th 2023

    Season ends April 27th / 28th 2024

    No fixtures announced as of yet, but I assume the same date of the men's team if not a bit later.

    Worth a watch for those who haven't seen it. A bright spot on what was otherwise a very depressing season for the club.

    Helen Ward was doing studio punditry for BBC1 Wales for the debacle v Armenia last night. The only bright ray of sunshinet through the dark storm clouds of a totally wretched performance.

    It was a typical turn up and expect to win performance. Totally unacceptable. Despite the woeful defending and application, the Armenian finishing was top drawer and would happily see their attacking players in the Watford Team.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to get a women's ST?
    I promised the girls I'd do that this year instead of renewing our men's STs, but I can't seem to find any information about this season's season tickets

    They've not even released fixtures yet. I'm sure women's STs were something I saw advertised quite regularly on the big screen at home matches last season though.

    Last season they became available on the 1st of August, until then the club said nothing about it. Their season kicks off a bit after the mens team so I expect around that time you will hear something. Keep an eye/ear on the ticket office/website as well. I managed to get one for last season for my Neice and she loved it.

    That is one of the risks you take forming a "break away club". Granted they have done exceptionally well and competed in a strong division, but finances were always going to be an issue. Millwall Lionesses will of no doubt gotten the majority of the exposure, but that doesn't mean this was a bad idea. I hope they do find the backing they need - as it's clubs that break away from the "norm" can go on to make a real name for themselves, especially in football.

    Helen Ward is now General Manager of Watford Women. Credit to her, well deserved and I am glad she is staying in the game in some form.

    Shame that they scheduled the opening game at the same time as the men's. Would've been good to catch both tomorrow.

    Probably more chance of seeing a goal for the team in yellow as well, going by our past efforts in front of goal.

    Missed this, despite checking all summer. Will probably just pay match by match now.
