Thailand's Football Factory
« on: February 04, 2019, 07:30:50 PM »

Although I was raised in a non football family and have never ever attended a game , I still find this video about West African footballers who head to Thailand to achieve their ambitions and dreams of becoming  professional football players to be very interesting and informative.

KK shame on you - geddown that Stadium and watch the Swatcats  :D

Seriously though - that looks a very interesting theme. I don't think it's only West Africans for whom football is a route 'out of Africa'. All Africans maybe. Any way out please  :(

When in Nigeria I bought the first set of football boots for the 'Exide Sparkers', who I think progressed later through to National League lower ranks. Used to kick around lunchtimes.

Even then, I couldn't keep up  :(

Thanks - I have just had the big warning - turn that off - but I promise to watch it all tomorrow. ATB

Just watched it KK. As expected, Man wants to get on in life and football the only possibility.
The Coach of the team who give him a 'chance' was on a princely Euro 600 monthly.

Looks like the road to nowhere. I expect there's hundreds the same in Thailand.
Good luck to him.  :(
