But I’d just like to say it was remiss of me not to congratulate @SmogDane on his local team success. Fair play Sonni mate I’m delighted for you 👍

Big match tomorrow for Dundalk against the Faroe Islanders.... good luck to them both ..hopefully helps to keep them going at a difficult time

The BBC had a nice little article on the Faroese team today. They are based in a town that has a population of 5,000, pretty much the whole squad has come from the town and they all work full-time or part time jobs as well as playing football. I'm happy for either team to win, but part of me is wanting the Faroese to go through more than Dundalk. (I have nothing against Dundalk). 

Added bonus if the Faroese do win, they'll be the first team from the Faroe Islands to qualify for a European competition.

"Yeah I'm going to need that annual leave rescheduling, I'm off to play Arsenal next week".

Apparently they schedule team training to start at 5pm, because all the players are working though the day!

Some of the teams they could be drawn against are crazy! As an example Arsenal's stadium could probably fit the entire population of the Faroe Islands in it, let alone the population of the town KI are based in!

Tangentially related but I very briefly visited the Faroe Islands on a cruise one year. Very beautiful country, would recommend. 

From memory, they all had roofs covered in grass.

We are talking about the green variety, I assume?

Always wanted to go to the Faroe Islands, but never really had the chance.

They are also pretty handy builders of tunnels I'm lead to believe too. Think all (or most) of the Islands that make up the country are all connected via tunnels that go through mountains and the sea. Weird fact I know, but it's one that's stuck in my head! 😂😂😂

Yeah, while you lot colonized Africa and stuff, we conquered Faroe Islands and Greenland! 😄 

It's ofc tongue in cheek 😉 

I hope our old Faroe Friends will qualify! (for history reasons, nothing against Dundalk and at least one of these underdogs will qualify)
  The same goes with Fc Copenhagen .. 

It could be a marvelous time for Danish football

That result in a European game brings back memories  of great second half escapes 😉

    • I've started getting ads that close around the entire border of the phone. So when I go to click on the circle or star to see next unread comments, I accidentally click on it. Some Gillette advert. Though this is the only issue I've had in ages.  
    • The good news is that matches are not decided on current form or there'd be no need for bookies, or anything. That's what we all love about the game its unpredictability...  If we perform we'll gain some sort of result.
    • He's been doing it every game as a bit of reverse psychology. However for this game I think a defeat is probably an accurate prediction.  Swansea are playing well and are very attacking.  We tend to struggle with teams that are fast on the counter attack. 
    • Only way to make them think twice is to start dishing out suspensions for simulation..  thought he'd been hit by a sniper
