    Be interesting to see what sort of budget they put behind it, will they attempt to compete at the high end or just be happy having a team.

    City have pumped a lot of money into their setup as have Chelsea and Liverpool so Utd will have some distance to go to catch up but my guess is all these teams are subsidised by the club I doubt the womens team revenue covers their budget.

    I think it's a positive for the club that they are bringing back a womens team.

    This will bring a lot more interest to the women's game. It's a big boost for sport. Looking forward to seeing how we do.

    The cynic in me says they've only got involved now because they can see $ signs in it.

    Womens football is big in the US & I think it's also growing quickly in China so they may look to do what other clubs have done any take their womens teams with them on pre season tours to help get more interest.

    I think interest is growing and exposure is certainly more than it has ever been in the UK, BBC give it a lot of coverage on all their platforms.

    Our U16s Girls team won the Northern league yesterday, and they finally have a senior team to progress to.

    You have to assume most of them will form part of the new squad with a few more senior players coming in to supplement them.

    Interested to see how serious Utd are with this will they just make up numbers or will they try to compete with the like of City, Liverpool & Chelsea who are not just good domestically they are also doing well in Europe.
