Rachel Yankey, Jen Beattie, Izzy Christiansen debate whether women's football should establish away

Manchester United were given an allocated away section for their trip to the Emirates to face Arsenal in November; most WSL fixtures do not feature segregated crowds; "I just think we're at a stage where there's a luxury of being able to do both," says Izzy Christiansen.

The rise of the Barclays WSL in recent years has seen both interest and crowds grow, but there is no stipulation from the league that crowds need to be segregated to keep home and away fans apart, as is the case in the men's game.
