Really random question...are Everton ladies financially tied to Everton?
If so, how much profit/loss comes from the venture and is it worthwhile?
I'd ask the responses to be business minded rather than "women should be allowed to play and it's great that we help" or "women should stay in the kitchen" etc.
If it has any net cost whatsoever I think we should pull out of the women's game altogether because it's an extravagance we cannot afford; however, if it's making us money, I'm all for it.

Asking for a response on business grounds is slightly ironic given the financial mess the club are in...so by that analysis shall we also ditch the first team?
Alienating 50% of the population isn't a way to improve our outlook.

Women´s football lives on scraps, partly because the entertainment equals zero.
It has NO influence on the economy of Everton´s men side.

All the old ladies of the male PC brigade and the long skirted hairy legged lesbians may be after you.
Womens footy eh, well why not, footy is footy, let them get on with it
I remember back in the early 70s(?) when Dickie ( cue bevis and butthead sniggers ) Davis on world of sport showed the winners of the WFAC ( or something ) in the shower/ bath after the game...we need more of that sort of coverage if we are to grow the game.

I don't have any personal views about women's football and their right to play the game. I do however notice that Chelsea, Liverpool and Man Utd don't have a particularly strong presence in womens football and they seem to be doing ok from a marketing perspective.
Also, from what I have read on here about how "proud" of Everton Ladies everyone is, it surprised me to read that the average attendance for an Everton Ladies home game is around 500-600 people.
And this is to Eric: no, my support of Everton is not based on financial health, my QUESTION was whether it is affecting our ability to spend!

The Everton ladies team has achieved a great deal. Their record is in the best traditions of Everton FC. Not everything can be valued in monetary terms and I think their achievements have brought a great deal of honour and praise to Everton.

I am proud our ladies' team has so many England regulars and that we consistently challenge Arsenal for the top spot and trophies (even if the Gooners do usually pip us to the post!) What I would give to have as successful a first team.

Irony...it's like goldy, only not as shiney or hard.
If the Mens team got to as many finals as the womens ( or is that wimmins ) we would be doing ok... fyi I class myself as a male lesbian ( hint; more not goldy stuff )
P.S. not long to the 1st game of the season.

Just coz they go by the name "Everton" doesn't necessarily mean they belong to EFC any more than Everton Tigers basketball club did. Ant they wore a variation of the club kit adapted for basketball.
Let's not get all pc here but womens football isn't great and claiming the relatively successful Everton Ladies as "our girls" is clutching at straws. I'm pretty sure the average Arsenal fan doesn't give a shiny shite about the fact Arsenal ladies are current League Champions (again).
Double glazing by Everton Glass anyone??? Surely we own them too!!!????

So from what you've said, they share our name, not our money, therefore I have no issues with it.
I hope they do well
