  1. Southampton fc women do not seem to have lot ambition? How come they applied for Tier 2 in English FA yet accept being placed in FA tier 6. Was it political to apply tier 2 but knowingly know they would not be accepted.
    I also am at loss to understand how Southampton can have 3 ladies senior teams. Why not have 3 way play off to sort out whom should be predominant
