Transfer rumours never die. It caters to the women's team as well. Being a football fan involves talking incessantly during the summer months about players their favourite club might sign. It is part of the architecture of fandom, a ritual and a routine that intensifies during the transfer windows. Either explicitly or implicitly, rumours enable fans to engage with football and their club, as a means of expressing an affiliation or their loyalty. The 2020/21 season is fast approaching, and with Barcelona's arch-rival Real Madrid officially taking over CD Tacon this summer, they're due to become a major player in the Primera Division by tapping up some significant transfer targets.

Mapi Leon - The Unbreakable Wall at the back

The Blaugrana Defender proved to be immense for Spanish National Team in the She Believes Cup against the likes of Megan Rapinoe, Christen Press and Ellen White. Oh, I just forgot her, yep against Toni Duggan as well. Just like Gerard Pique, she is the most used player by Lluis Cortes for Barca Femeni this season. She rarely gets the rest thus further indicating how important she is for the Barca Femeni. Her presence in the back looks be a warranty or kind of safeguard for Panos. It sometimes feels like the opponents need to get past Mapi to get anywhere near her. And she is one among the fan-favorites playing for Barca Femeni.

Why do you follow Women's Football?

Whenever I tell people that I follow women’s football, the reaction is always the same. ‘Is this another one of your feminist things?’, ‘yeah okay but I’m not interested’, ‘I wouldn’t follow them even if someone paid me’. I myself only started following after the Women’s World Cup in 2019, but I absolutely love it now.

The biggest reason was that even though I had watched football for more than 16 years, I had never really related to the players.

Beth Mead - the future of English women's football

24 year old English footballer who plays as a forward for Arsenal and England women's national football team. Beth Mead is the type of player you can't take your eyes off from, even for a moment. I must admit that I didn't become Beth's fan until about a year ago. I honestly regret all those earlier years when I hadn't followed her career yet. Beth Mead joined Middlesbrough F.C in 2005. In 2011, at age of 16, she moved to Sunderland. Already in her first season in the club she proved that she is a huge talent. Mead scored 23 goals in the league, and ended the season with 29 goals in all competitions. The following season, she played 28 matches in which she scored … 30 goals. It is worth add

Post-match Analysis of FC Barcelona vs Madrid CFF

Barcelona faced Madrid CFF at Estadi Johan Cruyff. With the international break coming up, Luis Cortes decided to rest some of the key players in the likes of Lieke Martens, Oshoala, Patri, Aitana and Andrea Pereira.
