The structure of British women's football has been thrown into doubt after the demise of Charlton Athletic.
And Vic Akers, boss of the all-conquering Arsenal Ladies team, insists a "serious meeting" needs to take place after the Addicks cut loose thier ties with the second-biggest set-up in English women's football.
Charlton took the drastic move as part of a major cost-cutting exercise following the relegation of the men's team from the Premiership.
And despite Arsenal winning the Uefa Women's Cup, FA Women's Premier League, FA Women's Cup and FA Women's Premier League Cup last season, Akers is under no illusions.
"The situation at Charlton could happen to us," he warned. "It's worrying and not good news for the game. We want competitive football and one less decent team is not good for any of us. We want to strengthen the Premier League. So to see a side who are really successful, a side who are consistently in the top half of the league and one who reached the FA Cup final last year, fall by the wayside, is very sad.
"I think we need a serious meeting [with the rest of the League] to discuss the situation."
