The Art of "Blowing It"
Nepali officials never met an opportunity they couldn't destroy. Usually it's in politics, but in a recent move by Nepal's ANFA hierarchy-- that sporting body with high scores in football bungling--Nepal shows that it can foul up the one things that Nepalis feel a sense of pride and happiness towards: Our football team.
It seems British skipper Graham Roberts has given our Nepal side the best chance it's ever seen on the world stage, with the boys headed to Jordan for another exciting match. Nepal moves into elite territory in the Asian region if it crosses over Jordan (sorry) and gets toward World-Cup territory. Exciting stuff!
ANFA has consistently underfunded the Side and many smell corruption. Coach Roberts has rightly complained about the incompetent staff and fields unworthy of practice. ANFA should be ashamed.
The single greatest tool a Nation has in its possession for establishing pride and a sense of national unity is its sports teams.
We are all Nepalis when one of our own does well on the world stage; be it our Judo champions, swimmers, or our U-19 Cricket teams. WE need competence in the organizations that support our athletes so our athletes can do their best!
It is absolutely inconceivable that the ANFA has now accused Coach Roberts of blaming them for the sole purpose of covering an inevitable loss to Jordan. What a pathetic, defeatist statement from a bunch of low-class bakshish-beggars who see their country as constantly weak.
Nepal coach Graham Roberts attempts to describe the amount of excrement he had to wade through during his last visit to ANFA headquarters.
Fire every member of ANFA and replace them with volunteers from Nepal Unites, says blogdai
