Heard an interesting fact the other day from a work friend that puzzled me some what. Her daughter plays for the ladies team and has to travel all the way to St George's Park to train x amount of times a week, taking 40+ minutes each way. 

We have a massive, utterly beautiful training facility based right here in Derby but for some reason send them all the way to bleeding Burton.

Theres been plenty of rumours of wife banging and sausage play for a while but surely it's not that bad that we have send the women's team to Staffordshire :ph34r:

I would personally have thought it more to do with the fact the first team use the training ground, then under 21's and so on and nothing more sinister. Probably just not enough time, nor enough facilities to share.

Either that or they were all swooning over George Thorne and not getting any training done...probably the first one though.

I don't have any answers, but i seem to recall it was only reletivly recently the club sort of "officialised" the women's team and before it was really it's own quite small set up.

It also struck me as i typed, it might be one factor in the development planning arguments (we have no space at moore farm for the Ewes team)???

I could be totally and completely wrong, and happy to be corrected on everything i just typed.

To be fair he is fit. I hope there is a logical reason as it seems a bit of fanny ache.

I hope it is a case of just a lack of room. Can we not just call the council sexist for not allowing us to build a place for the ladies? :p

Where does the name Moor Farm come from?..........was it named after Roger?

It's not the best name is it, especially for the Ladies, playing at a Cow Farm, maybe it should be changed to Baar Farm, or for B4 Birds Farm?

"Oh Gary Rowett had a farm, with a Ba Ba here, and a Ba Ba there........"

i don't understand why clubs feel obliged to have a ladies team. 

 

Or in the case of Forest, a men's team.

Wouldn't the women's team train at night? There aren't any grass floodlit pitches at moor farm are there 

Women's team do train at night so it can't be down to room and there's definitely flood lit pitches. Still scratching my head.

This is correct, until recently it was name only and largely still is. Home games for the ladies are still played at Borrowash Vics I think which is an absolute dump of a place. Training at St Georges Park is a good option as there is a dirth off good facilities in the area for childrens/youth/amateur football.

There's a limit how much one pitch can be used weekly, otherwise it'll get ruined. Not sure how much modern day pitches can take and does it change with climate, but it used to be around 20 hours per week when I played. Might be less as demands are higher and humidity is so much worse there. 

So basicly less than one team/pitch. If men and u-21 train there, it may be the answer.
