Barbados Beach Footballers Are So Bad
As most people in Barbados are fully aware the standard of football on the island is real bad. I thought us Scots were bad at football, but at least we have made an improvement over the last few years and we have a tiny glimmer of hope that things are headed in the right direction. I just wish I could say the same for Barbados.
It was just the other day when one of my Bajan relatives said that us Scots were as useless the Bajans at football. I would just like to put the record straight, Scotland are in a different league and class compared to Barbados.
In my time here in Barbados, I have watched a couple of matches and I can honestly say that they do seem to enjoy there football and they sure do try there hardest. And you have to give them credit for that.
I watched a bunch of locals playing beach football the other day at Silversands and these guys were a sorry and desperate bunch of footballers. But at least they played there football with a smile on there faces, which was a refreshing site.
Just to put the record straight for the family member! Scotland are ranked 24 and Barbados are ranked 120 by FIFA. Hopefully Barbados will get there act together and start improving and maybe start getting some decent results. I suppose passing to the same member of your own team would be a good start!
