Bending It Like Beckham

Football is now the biggest female participation sport in this country.

I know - I was a bit taken aback when I read it too. But as the Women's World Cup kicks off today, with a headline-grabbing scoreline for Germany (11-0 against Argentina!) there is, at least for a short time, an increased focus on the sport.

Brian Barwick, Chief Executive of the FA claims to be a big fan and is in China himself to watch the tournament.

Anyway a significant factor in the growth of the game was the 2002 film "Bend It Like Beckham". Great movie. If you haven't seen it yet I suggest you get out and get a copy right away girls.

Meanwhile, back at Leicester City the ... er.. slightly less headline-grabbing news is that we are down to a shortlist of 4 for the manager's job.

You'd better hurry up Milan. The girls are taking over.
