"The Beautiful Game in the Faroe Islands"

Even in the bleak, cold, wind-whipped Faroe Islands, there is soccer. And also wonderfully crude chants:
I was able to recognise some of the Premier League best, such as the well-loved “you’re s**t, and you know you are” and “the referee’s a w****r” even though they were in the local Faroese language.
I love the fact that fans are encouraged to come onto the field, at halftime and after matches, to play 5-on-5's of their own.
