Prabhjot Singh on left wing?
by tarun on Aug 21, 2004 12:41 PM

Well, I am surprised to see Prabhjot retaining his position in side, in spite of dismissal showing tournament after tournaments. I remember reading somewhere, he is going through a bad patch, it seems that patch has been continuing since last champions trophy in Amsterdam.Close to two years! Don;t we have anyone in whole country to be a decent winger!

don't expect anything
by sandeep koul on Aug 20, 2004 11:56 PM

it was really irritating to see indian hockey team not sticking to basics.it surprised me that the forwards even couldn't trap the ball cleanly because of which many good chances went into vein.this was not first time that indians were playin aussies first time,they know their game.on counter attacks made by aussies i couldn't see enough indians to stop aussies from scoring quick goals.now they have lost 4-3 they are almost out of the medal contention.i think bringing one medal in olympics is wat the indian team aims at...

Why India waste its time in hockey?
by Anup Deka on Aug 20, 2004 09:56 PM

Gone were the days when hockey was not as famouse as today in brave & developed countries like Germany, Holland, Australia etc. and when India ruled the game in its favoure.WHY IT IS SO? The main reason is - the nerve system of Indian people (i.e. people with Hinduism culture) is very sensitive which preaches non-violence and only peace. If we observe history we will see coutries which have a aggresive history like war (for instance Hitler of Germany, Nixon of US, Stelin of Soviet etc.) can really play any sports better. Because they have that instinct and aggresivesiveness like WAR to attack the opponant which we Indian don't have. So what should we do?
1)We the Indians must change our attitude with moderation.2)At all time we should not be alert towards our culture(For instance why young should always respect old all time, when old is iteself sometime unrespectful).3)Sports like BOXING,FOOTBALL etc really need high energy in the form of Protin.So we Indian should not deter ourself to even have beef or pork at time(whether Hindu or Christian or Persi etc.)4)Sex should be made free but with preventive measures.Remeber-27,000 sex workers are angaged in Athens for smooth function.

attack absent
by manish on Aug 20, 2004 09:16 PM

Was disappointed to see indian attack , something seriously is wrong with the indian hockey team , more so the approach it has been adopted , plainily defense hockey. Result it more often lands up with a goal or two and comes under futher pressure in first minutes or first half only. attack is noticely absent . old saying attack is the best defence.
