Manchester United Women got their inaugural FA Women’s Championship season off to an absolute flyer after bringing up double figures in an opening day rout of Aston Villa.

After finding themselves 6-0 up at the interval, United went on to double that tally in the second half – Casey Stoney’s side eventually running out comprehensive 12-0 winners at Boldmere.

Indeed, there was still 22 minutes left to play when United scored their twelfth goal, so it would appear they even did Villa a favour by easing off slightly toward the end of the encounter.

And so, in their first ever competitive league fixture, United’s women have beaten the record winning margin managed by the men’s team in 116 years of trying: a 10-0 victory over Anderlecht in the preliminary rounds of the 1956/7 European Cup.

As it happens, United men’s biggest league win was a 10-1 trouncing of Wolves in 1892.

Either way, a bloody strong start for the Women. It’s little wonder they’re already strong favourites to win the league and earn promotion, despite having only been in existence for a matter of months.

However, being a fully professional, financially sound side in a division studded with semi-pro outfits might also play a helping hand in that.

    Pies, can we exchange Pogba, Martial, Bailly and Lindelof for two of these ladies? Would you help us with that? Ed Woodward is busy trying to find a new and official edible condom sponsor.
    I am also arranging to exchange Sanchez for a second half corner kick when Fellaini is on. That would be great sporting business.

    Bwah, no comment. The last paragraph speaks for itself. We’re comparing apples to roundabouts at this point. The feat was amazing, but the article rubbed me up the wrong way.
