Is this the high point or is the best yet to come for the Lionesses?

We also consider if thirty million pounds is too much for Morgan Gibbs-White, and whether Everton are making the same mistakes yet again in the transfer market. On the 14th July in 2006 the punishments in the Calciopoli scandal were doled out, at exactly the same time as Italy were on the way to winning the World Cup!
