    I don’t understand the lack of island-wide celebration on this incredible achievement!!

    Is it because Bermuda isn’t a premier league team?

      I don’t know where you’ve been “footballista”, but I’ve seen GREAT island pride/celebration.

      People need to stop coming on here with their negativity..
