Can't help noticing the vast stretch of empty space in the stadium. With the kind of dross that is served up for football watching public and English premier league starting today more gloomier days for dhivehi football. Reverting back to 6 teams in the first division might help somewhat, as 8 teams means local telent pool is thinly spread out with limited pool of players in the country to choose from!
