Jordan: Die-hard Al Faisali Fan

Jordanian blogger Hareega is a die-hard Al Faisali fan.
“I will not regret cancelling my clinic this morning and packing up my schedule and working 15 days nonstop in a row and registring for the ridicuolously expensive ART -America channel in order to run from the hospital this morning to watch al-Faisali playing in the second leg of their final againts Wefaq Staif. We lost 1-0 and we lost the title, we always lose at home and win outside because the fans, as loyal and emotional as they are, can pose a horrible negative effect on the team especially when the players’ sisters are always mentioned whenever one misses a corner or makes a wrong pass,” he notes.
