The Argus: The Amex is set for another big occasion The Amex is set for another big occasion

World Cup football is heading to the Amex – with England taking on Montenegro.

Albion’s home stadium will stage the Women’s World Cup qualifier on Saturday, April 5 (1pm).

It will be new coach Mark Sampson’s first home match in charge.

The contest, on the same day as the Seagulls go to Barnsley in the Championship, will be shown live on BBC1.

Sampson said: “The Amex is a wonderful stadium and I know it will be a fitting venue for our new England’s first match.”

Why is it misleading? There does indeed appear to be a World Cup match being played at the Amex on 5th April.

Perfectly reasonable headline. With the senior mens World Cup starting in just a few months time, anyone with a modicum of common sense should have realised immediately the headline referred to either womens, or under-21's or schools football or something like that.

Think of our stadium as an apprentice employee, you start with the small stuff and build you up to the more important jobs. Every sporting event we stage is one step nearer to hosting bigger events.

Clearly I have no sense then. Trouble is I have a congenital defect. I was born at a very early age.
Or maybe there is another meaning you have missed? ;-)

It's clearly not the proper World Cup but the headline was designed to get the pulses racing and most of us probably fell for it, if only fleetingly.
Anyway a second rate World Cup game is better than nothing or am I not allowed to say that? Only joking.
Congrats to the Albion for getting the game.

Sorry about that Russell but here is the news that the majority of us would like to read:-

"OG and NJ admit that the one striker policy has failed to produce enough goals and from now on the Albion are going to play 2 strikers and a winger."

Perhaps there is some other news that you or others would like to read?

A "non-event"? Did you miss the line in the story "The contest... will be shown live on BBC1."

If it's big enough an event to be shown on the nation's flagship television channel, then it's surely big enough to warrant a story on this website?

Wow, was just going to pop into my car and see if I could make it to the 2nd half - BUT its not for months yet. So perhaps the article headline could be changed to "Amex TO stage ...." A lesser point is that womens football is still a minority sport compared to mens, so it would not be unreasonable to make the assumption that unless qualified with 'women' as a prefix this is referring to the men's game. Quite clearly I'm slowly turning into a pedantic old ****. BUT standards please....

I thought it was the seniors being a bit slow and was ready to comment about Montenegro being another team at Amex to park the bus but then realised it was womens football and so they will not be parking the bus cos women can't drive.
I expect a few thumbs down from the Albionettes on here.

How about
"TWO-UP-FRONT DISEASE IS CONFIRMED AS AN ACTUAL ILLNESS"

And the story could start.....
Scientists at the University of Sussex have found that "Two-Up-Front Disease" is actually a medical condition found in some Football fans. They started the study when they found symptoms in an abnormal number of fans around the Sussex area. They have now discovered that cases of the disease, also known as "442 Syndrome", are far higher in the UK than mainland Europe but are particularly high in the Brighton area. Studies suggest the condition is linked to impatience and a bloodymindedness for things gone by in many sufferers.

Gus intended to play 4-4-2 but quickly realised it was difficult to control games using it. Unless we want to go back to what the other English teams are doing....GET OVER IT!!!


Back to the actual story, great to see our fantastic stadium get international recognition as a venue for one of the fastest growing sports in the world. When do tickets go on sale?

Jeeez
Either half the people on this site are extremely thick or are just miserable gits.

Just to let you know England Men have already qualified so it would **** stupid playing a qualifying game in April.
Womens football is steadily improving, this match is being shown live on BBC so we should be proud that our club are staging the match.

To the same people, you may find the women play 442 so you may want to turn up and watch that formation.

UTA
In TB & OG we trust

Oh grow up for petes sake man,firstly i`m not fixated with playing 2 up front ,i simply believe 1 isn`t working for us ,especially at home .
And as for womens football ,i totally respect it ,but i draw the line at people treating it as equal to the mens game ,not misogenism ,just a simple fact of life ,that some people cant face .

Given today's other news regarding the club's losses for last season , and regardless of your opinion of women's football , this should be seen as a good way to earn some additional income. Gate receipts may be small, but i am guessing that there will be some TV revenue along with sales of food and other stuff on the day. I daresay there have been some efforts made to ensure we got to host this game above others - so respect to the club for that , it puts us in the spotlight and can only lead to bigger events being considered by the FA etc

Grow up?!

You weren't even in the thread when I first posted so unless my mock article hit a nerve, I don't know why you felt the need to reply anyway. It certainly wasn't aimed at you or anyone else in particular. I heard a Preston fan with the same theory about his team tonight. That despite them controlling the game for long periods against Forest. Because they ended up losing 2-0, he felt playing 2 up top would be a better approach. Game of opinions!

I'm not sure who you felt was "treating it as equal to the men's game" either. Women's Football is still a developing sport and so clearly isn't played to the level of the Men's game yet. But does this mean no-one should watch or report on it? The fact that people are starting to is a sign of how much it is growing. I personally have a slight issue with it as I think too many goals are scored from long range, over the GKs' head. Women are naturally shorter than men and so I believe the goals should be slightly smaller. Other than that, some of the women's Football I have seen in recent times is very good. So, asking when the tickets go on sale was actually the only serious bit of my original post. If that's a problem, Tug, I don't think it's me that needs to grow up.

I gave this a "thumbs up" for 2 reasons.

Well, the women's game certainly does get emotions running high!

I do recall someone saying that the Olympic semi-final between USA and Canada was one of the best games they had ever seen at Old Trafford.

Light on the theatrics and feigned injuries, just honest endeavour and a surprising amount of skill and stamina.

Why second rate??? You obviously have never watched women's football. It may play second fiddle to mens ' football but it's certainly not second rate! As it's being played on my 70th, I for one will enjoy my birthday watching it!!!
