Liverpool FC is currently the 7th richest football club in the world according to Deloitte, bringing in €604.7m in revenue last year. Since being taken over by Fenway Sports Group (FSG) in 2010, the management of its men's team has been impressive. Liverpool FC are currently UEFA Champions League winners and FIFA Club World Cup winners and look all but certain to win their first Premier League title since the competition was reorganised in the early 90s. The men's squad is young, with academy players coming through into the first team, and investment in the form of big money transfers with a clear, sensible transfer strategy has also been a key factor in the team's success. All of this is very positive news, and credit must go to the owners and to the management.

However, contrast this with the state of Liverpool Women, who currently sit level on points with bottom-place Bristol City at the foot of the WSL. News last week of yet another match postponement due to a waterlogged pitch at Liverpool's 'home' ground at Prenton Park (in reality, home to League One side Tranmere Rovers) was a further cause of embarrassment. Liverpool FC provide no ground support to Tranmere for the use of the pitch, expecting the League One side's groundsmen to maintain the upkeep of a pitch that is also used by Tranmere's first team and Liverpool's Youth team. To add insult to injury, Liverpool's new state of the art training facilities at Kirkby academy are not for use by the Women's team. 

During a period of incredible growth on and off the pitch for the Liverpool Men's team, it is outrageous that so little investment and attention is being paid to Liverpool Women. Fans of the game and of the club should take this opportunity, while the going is good, to press for the change and the investment that this section of the club deserves. Relegation into the semi-pro Women's Championship is not something that Liverpool should be considering acceptable and would be a huge shame for the professional players who are being deprived of the opportunity to compete on the big stage. 

Liverpool FC - you are bringing in revenue upward of €600mill...invest some in your women's team!
