Bias against women’s football made me angry

Oxford Mail: Bias against women’s football made me angry Bias against women’s football made me angry

READING the letter by Chris Stevens makes my blood boil about Oxford Utd Ladies and other women’s teams.

They have as much right as the men to have the headlines in the Oxford Mail.

He goes on to say he has a keen interest in local football. So does it matter who is first or second in the sports column, whether man or woman?

It sounds to me he is very biased against women’s football or any women’s sport in fact.

I played football for many years and I manage teams in the Witney District League and I would have played women or young ladies in my team without hesitation because some are better than a lot of men.

Mr Stevens says he watches Oxford Utd.

I can assure you, the women played a lot better than the latter for part of the season. So they deserve to have the headlines sometimes.

It is you, Mr Stevens, who needs correcting, not the Oxford Mail.

I don’t feel safe while these cyclists are about

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

A question was raised by Dr Jan-Georg Deutsch, as to how many drivers have been killed by cyclists.

I can’t see how this would work out at all

I think Jonathan Saunders’ letter of Friday, August 8, sums up nicely the recent history of Palestine. However, I can’t see how a Jewish state could police the Arab world because its creation has antagonised the Arab and Islamic world to the point where the US, and its allies, are now considered their enemy number one.

We were all with you in spirit during the service

I never thought that the First World War would become so personal. My husband Daniel from Abingdon – now of New York – lost his uncle Daniel Goddard, age 19, in the battle of the Somme in July 1916.

Training for anyone interested in beekeeping

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

11:00am Tuesday 19th August 2014

We were pleased to see your article last week outlining initiatives by Oxfordshire councillors to promote beekeeping in our area.

I thoroughly enjoyed this Stagecoach show

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

11:00am Tuesday 19th August 2014

I have watched many of the Stagecoach performances in the past and they have always been very polished, professional and an absolute pleasure to be part of. On Friday, August 1, I had the privilege to watch the Stagecoach Oxford Advanced Workshop of Fame and I wasn’t disappointed.

There are various factors behind decisions made over sentencing

Oxford Mail: oxford magistrates court

11:00am Tuesday 19th August 2014

I have noticed that your very popular ‘Scales of Justice’ column, which does much to inform the public and maybe even deter some potential criminals, has generated a certain amount of negative comment in your Readers’ Letters section.

Easier for cyclists than a lot of our pedestrians

Oxford Mail: COMMENT: Villagers are still not any better off

11:00am Monday 18th August 2014

There has been much discussion, with suggestions invited, for making cycling safer in the city, but none for how cyclists can contribute with safer cycling. Some of the unspent money available for the purpose could be used to distribute copies of the Highway Code to unsafe cyclists.
