  • What are their complaints with the coach? I mean, I wouldn't be surprised if it has to do with inappropriate words/actions, and/or emotionally and verbally abusing the players, but of course it would be too hard to put that into the article. Saying "they wrote letters and talked to people about their complaints" doesn't really do much to clear up the actual issues.

    Thank you!


    Of course, the response by the association is essentially "We aren't going to bother listening to a bunch of whining harpies", which is pretty much in line with what I'd expect these organizations to say, because women athletes are just supposed to shut up and deal with it. *sigh*
  • "The RFEF will not allow the players to question the continuity of the coach, as taking those decisions are not part of their role,"

    the ol' "shut up and make me a sammich" response.  not surprising to see spain not caring what the women are saying

    losing the respect of the locker room is usually a reason for sacking but i guess having friends in high places counts for more than actually trying to win

    Sadly enough, we pretty much know that the response would be something completely different if this was the men's team lodging the complaints and protests.
  • The Federation responded with a strongly worded statement describing this as "unprecedented in the history of football"

    The federation must have spent the South African World Cup in 2010 drunk, as the French tried to get their own manager sacked, in the middle of a tournament.

    When one player is unhappy, then it is the players problem. When 15 players are unhappy, it is the managers fault.

    That's the story in like 2/3 of all the tournaments the Dutch have ever played in.
