Champions even after losing on the field

It was a moment of joy for the Bangladeshi cricket fans in Dhaka when Bangladesh recorded their maiden ODI series win against Pakistan by registering their second win in the three match series. One could see the joy on the face of the stand-in skipper Shakib Al-Hassan after the accomplishment. Not a long while ago, it was the same Bangladeshi team who were left with tears after the World Cup exit following a herculean group stage effort. The players have never been shy of showing their emotions; as the adage goes, real men do not hide their emotions. And on most occasions, these champions win hearts despite being on the losing side. Here is a total recall of some of the greatest moments of sporting history when the men couldn’t control their emotions. read more

Follow the coach    

A coach is the one who knows the way, shows the way and goes the way.

It is not easy to become a coach. Effective coaching especially in sports does not only require skills but an ability to work under pressure. A coach has the role to influence the team, work with them and supervise them. read more

Is Arsene’s time at Arsenal up?

This seemingly appalling question arises only because of the insurgence of the social media into every nook and cranny of the modern game. After almost 19 years into his job, Arsene has faced a barrage of criticism, vile abuse and anger. In recent years, fans and rivals have called for him to be sacked alleging a lack of success and trophies in the last 9 years and some humiliating results to bitter rivals and lower ranked opposition like the West Broms and the Derby Countys of England. But for a man of his stature and record is this justified? Or is Arsene’s time really up at Arsenal? read more

Lost art of defending: Will the real defenders stand up

Take a look at this video:

Ignore the music please. Rapahel Varane absolutely destroys Barcelona. He not only intercepts the play but, boy, doesn’t he love his slide tackles. The way he tackled Messi and Fabregas was mind-boggling. There is a dearth of defenders like that now. read more

Why Eden Hazard should win the PFA best player of the year?

Since Eden hazard joined Chelsea in 2012 from Lille, he has performed exceptionally well for Chelsea. He has adapted well in the strongest league in the world. He scored 14 goals last season and created 7 goals for his team. But in this season for Chelsea Hazard has been the most influential man, already scoring 14 goals. He has 8 assists to his name this season. But to become PFA player of the season those stats exclusively will not help, one has to be different. That’s been the case for some time especially with Eden Hazard. read more

WHEN LOVE CAME RAINING DOWN

“What kind of a game is that?” was the thing that sauntered into my mind when I first caught a glimpse of the game that I now worship, adore and love deeply. What sense could a 12 year old kid, in a Cricket loving country possibly have derived from Football right? I couldn’t either. Guys running around the pitch chasing a ball seemed stupid to me then. Though incidentally, a few days later my dad got me FIFA (the game) to play on the desktop and I decided to give it a try. read more

Arsenal vs. Liverpool: The Revenge of last season

How things panned out at the Emirates over the weekend, and the major talking points.

England’s team of 2015 marched on, picking up another 3 points with almost effortless ease, as goals from Hector Bellerin, Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud sealed a comfortable victory for the Gunners, who have now picked up 30 points from 36 this calendar year. Liverpool were able to grab a late consolation via a penalty by Jordan Henderson, but it was too little too late for Brendan Rodgers’ men who are now 7 points off the top four. Let’s look at the 5 main talking points – read more

Why Oh England Why! The English football team at International levels

In the early 2000s, English premier league was being widely telecasted in India for the first time. We were able to see players like Beckham, Bergkamp, Zola and many others perform the most wonderful things ever seen by us on a football pitch. Before we became familiar with the genius and ingenuity of the Brazilian team, before the start of 2002 world cup, many of us (well I think so) rooted for England to go all the way. Oh what a pity! The ineptitude hidden behind all the glamour. The paltry talent, very professionally hidden behind the pre-cup shim shams. Nothing has changed. Rather things have gone from acceptable to miserable state. What appals me is the indifference shown by fans when England didn’t even cross the group stages this time around. read more
