THIS is amazing and fucked up all at the same time!
Across THREE seasons, from November 2005 to April 2008, Arsenal Ladies FC won ALL of their league games: 51 wins, 252 goals, and 31 goals conceded. So what's the kicker? They don't get paid to do it! They receive a match fee (whatever that is) to cover their expenses. Most of them juggle full-time jobs while playing, so they basically play to play. Now THAT is love for the game!
With women's Professional Soccer starting up this year in the states, they should come over here! At least they'd get SOMETHING for kicking ass and taking names!
