Ittihad Libya

Football's a great communication device. It crosses continents and cultures. You might think that you've got nothing in common with a conservative stay-at-home Muslim until you find that he's a big fan of Alan Shearer.

So, I'm thinking, if students take an interest in our Premier League, then it's only good manners to reciprocate.

The big cheeses in Libya are Ittihad, who are into the last 16 of the Arab Champions League. Which is nice. They are also going strong in the CAF Champions League.
