After the FA decided to cancel the WSL a couple days ago, and are now pushing through with the restart of the Premier League, it makes the FA look frankly, like greedy men.

The women deserved to finish the league. Manchester City was flying high and competing for the title, just a point ahead of Chelsea with a game ahead.

Since established in 2010 the WSL has been won by City only once, in 2016. We were in for not only a thrilling finish, but a chance for City to re-claim a title that has eluded them for four years.

Below is the FA’s statement on the end of WSL’s season’s

The FA Women’s Super League & Women’s Championship Board has today confirmed the decision to end the 2019-20 season for the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and the FA Women’s Championship, with immediate effect.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the FA Women’s Super League & Women’s Championship Board has been in regular consultation with clubs and key stakeholders from across both leagues to identify the most suitable and appropriate way to conclude the 2019-20 season, and to give clubs and players the clarity and support they need at this time.

Following overwhelming feedback from the clubs, the decision to bring an end to the 2019-20 season was made in the best interest of the women’s game. This will also enable clubs, the FA Women’s Super League & Women’s Championship Board and the FA to plan, prepare and focus on next season when football returns for the 2020-21 campaign.

I do believe the league could have been completed. For football and for the players and fans, what was stopping them from playing in August and pushing a new league a bit forward? Lack of foresight?

It was almost like this was an annoyance and were glad to call off.

What i am 100% sure of is the women deserved to finish and deserve better.
