Indian Hockey is full of mess and long path ahead for better future. Mindset created by Mr. Gill(Ex Hockey chief) and company has limited presence of game to only few states in this country and popularity of game is shrinked. Apart from that players look like without any will to succeed and no team work. Any foreign coach will be time being ad-hoc solution for problem. Today cricket is at the top because of many reasons and Hockey can follow it if Administrators, Players and related people show some courage and do something beyond their selfish motivations. Its foolish to say Cricket is reason behind hockey fall down or future progress. If even 10% population out of India starts following hockey then hockey can be on the top again. Also it needs long term and perfect planning.

Look at the Indian Hockey team? Most of them look malnutritents, starved and weak. They all come from poor families. Look at other teams-- tough, well built guys.. It is only Indian and Paki teams that have such poorly built players.. REASON- No money available to the players to imrpove on themselves.. ALL MONEY GOES TO CRICKET..Money is spent to make indian cricketers and officials rick.. Nothing more... Some sponsors did come in the last minute for the Hockey team..but it wastoo late when money comes in late and not much can be done.. Anyways boys.. U did good by beating pakistan.. It is ok...

Exactly. Sports in India means only Cricket; all other disciplines are treated like step-children. The first n foremost to blam for this is the Common Indian Man himself & nobody else.

Hi Guys,


India played realy well... I guess they are under too much pressure! We still need to encourage the game more in India, need lot of sponsors and even the public needs to understand that it is our National game. We also need to have frequent matches and series...just like we have in cricket. The more they practice the better they will get at it.
If we could help in anyway, please let us know...we NRIs can also contribute financially.
