Playing Football in School – My story of a short career.

We are seeing a surge in the football culture in our country. Not a long time ago you would find it difficult to find people, other than a select few, who genuinely knew every nook and corner of the football world. My love for football is not only restricted to watching and reading about it but also to the extent of playing it day in day out till my legs gave up. Living in two of the metropolitans of our country, New Delhi and Hyderabad, I got quite few opportunities to play football at a better level than just kicking the ball around. I am so influenced by football that I associate myself with people who don’t breathe air but football. I know it can difficult being that way but that what football is to me. 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.

Who the Greatest Footballer Ever: Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo

Before giving my opinion on who is the greatest ever, let us look at the analysis made by the new football experts, who have come out in force in the last few years. These are the people who make internet memes and trolls. The understanding they have of football is immense. According to them, out of Messi and Ronaldo, one is greatest because he pays taxes and the other doesn’t. One is greatest because he is married to his childhood sweetheart and other acts as a playboy. I can go on but I would like to tell these experts to go and play FIFA (the game) because their opinion is nonsense. But you will still find people believing them. read more

EpiskyrosIts origin dates back to Han dynasty in 3rd century BC where leather balls were filled with feathers and kicked around.
