The Hero Indian Super League  Empty The Hero Indian Super League

Post by Glory Sun Oct 12, 2014 8:19 pm

I didnt see a thread here. So just starting one. Not so sure though whether this( General Section) is the place for it. So admins kindly check and make sure.

I have seen a lot of Indians and guys from the subcontinent here in GL. So people who are following this can come here and do some chit- chat. Smile

India, once a notable name in footballing world has declined alarmingly all thanks to that crazy shite game called cricket which for the past 30-40 years have dominated every other sport in the country. Now that same India is once again forced to take her baby steps; into a brave new direction hopefully.

At least now theres an attempt to revive it, to redeem Indian football and hence the concept of Indian Super League got formulated.

8 city based franchises, former notable International names from world over, young Indian talents, corporates, Bollywood,  cricketers Rolling Eyes and the end product is this, a 2 month long tournament which is garnering quite a response within the country, its youth especially.

You will find tonnes of negative stuff in here, especially to outsiders it might even look like a goddamn circus Laughing
But at the end of the day if this can improve the quality of football in the country, can spot some decent players, cos India is a vast country and there must be talent in here, only that is going to count. We can conveniently neglect every thing else. Smile

yea but Elano is the marquee player on paper I think.

Also there are other big names as well. Like Nicholas Anelka :bow: in Mumbai City's ranks who however lost today in the first match to Atletico by 3 goals to nil Very Happy Both Anelka and Ljumberg though didnt play.

Andre Santos the best player in this league easy.

Beats getting beat up by Flamengo fans after a bad performance.

Inter is strong within this league as well,4 ex players.

I don't get India at all. Every time I have been, which is only 2 times to be fair, I have seen countless kids outside kicking balls around. The sport is not completely MIA like it is in large parts of the US, or even Canada. You'd think they would have enough to make a mark out of Asia, but it does not seem to work like that.

That being said....Lets go Goa!

the strangest thing is that i've never seen a british player of indian descent, even tough indians are a largy minority in the country Laughing

contrast that with the number of african players in france , or how every single dutch team this season has at least one player of moroccan descent Laughing

vikash dhorasoo remains the GOAT player of indian descent :bow:

yes it is.
Premier League Soccer, the first attempt eventually got canceled owing to lack of funds and venues mainly. That was very embarrassing. Hernan Crespo was the most expensive player in that.

Proud in fact is one of the most prominent players even today. His name Certainly can be slotted into a list of top 5 Indian footballers of the last decade or so.

Neil Taylor of Swansea.

Anyways, Ill be supporting my hometown Delhi Dynamos FC, Dont think we will win it, But we'll finish in the top 4.

Ill be going to Goa to watch the Goa vs Delhi match, The home games ill catch once Uni ends in December if we qualify for the semis.

Those who think this is kind of a sell out dont know the actual condition of Indian football. Anyways im glad this is shit is happening.

The Kolkata Mumbai game was pretty good in terms of everything, Yeah it was rash and very unappealing in terms of attacking but this was probably teams settling. They arent used to playing infront 20k+ crowds and so much money.

Unfortunately theres a Kerala only in the name. Everything else from the team motto, to crest, to colors is alien to the tradition and history of the place. Very Non mallu. Mad
The funniest thing is the crest. Instead of putting an Indian elephant on it, those ignorant fools have come up with an African elephant. :facepalm:

Nevertheless yea I still will be supporting the team. But since it doesnt evoke that much connection and emotion, I will also be rooting for North East United. Smile Let's see how it pans out.

and LOL ironically today's match is KBFC vs NEU.
