Kudos to India

Let us appreciate the hockey played by Germany and Holland. First stop criticizing India. The olden day athletes and other players are mentally retarded. All they have achieved is maximum one bronze or two per tournament. This is the best collection ( four medals in a single olympic tournament) by India. Let us learn to appreciate the players.

2. change the coach, probably some other european who knows the latest methods
3. select young players probably from university level
4. make sure they get all best quality equipments at state cost.
5. they get the best nutrition and hotel facilities during training.

These two hockey matches were superb .. if the Indian Hockey team has seen it they will stop playing hockey for ever as they will realize the gap between "Indian" hockey and World Hockey

Get the facts right

GB won the gold in 1988 and not 1998. India as always is still leaning on to Dhyan Chand who played in 1936.
