India will always go down fighting
by Monte on Aug 20, 2009 10:32 AM

Going by yesterday's match, india deserve atleast draw.. Retrospection must be done so that India did't make further mistakes. Some of them are:
1) Yesterday, its the midfielders who fail in all accounts. The strikers are good, but the midfielders didn't do their job.. Pradeep and Antony Pareira were hopeless. Atleast steven dias is ok. They didn't fed the forwards but rather tried selfishlly. They should be replaced
2) What is anwar doing in indian defence. He doesn't know how to play.. He should never find a place in starting 11. Other defenders are ok.
3) Even though Sunil Chetri replaced sushil, rather, india got more chance in 1st half. Sushil was unlucky. His attempts were saved by the agile goalkeeper.. Why did Indian coach replaced sushil with the 80 % fit sunil chetri.

To sum up, the midfielders needed revamped.. They should be replaced.

Follow european model
by Atanu Chatterjee on Aug 20, 2009 12:52 AM

We need to follow a european model. There should be spotters all over the country...at young age, its not the skill but the healthy kids with growth rate higher than others should be picked. Parallelly there should be residential schools across india, purpose of which is to nurture these spotted kids as footballers, study is secondary there. This way the kids can take football as career aspiration. It will take a generation though to ge the fruit, but model is quite successful in europe.

if u think u can do better post your rusume and lick some AIFF bigshot boots. You surely will get the job. The problem in indian football is not in players and coaches. It is in the governing body and public's stepmotherly attitude to indian football.

Do you even follow what's happening with Indian football? Or do you comment just like that after reading a news?

Mr. Pritam Singh is right. Very poor African countries are playing marvellous game like cameroon etc. and in India, the soccer team always cry for lack of fund.
