2006 WORLD CUP: BEST ONE EVER!

 Before I start, let me clarify that I am considering the world cups which I have watched. I rather not comment about the ones before 2002, because I haven’t seen them live, so to not upset the pompous, bombastic and loud mouthed so-called football puritans and elitists. read more

Yay or Nay on the technology?

The football world has for quite some time now been ripe with discussions over the increasing use of technology. Everyone perceives its use in the sport through their respective windows of perception. Fans grow furious at the very thought of the ball crossing the line but the goal disallowed by the referee. In contrast the veterans say that tech will disrupt the flow of this beautiful game and rob it of its originality.

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

Holding Midfielder: Forgotten Hero

As fans of the wonderful game of football, we never recognise (forget praise) these brand of footballers called ‘central deep lying midfielders’. They may not be known for their goal scoring prowess, or for their assists too but to know their true importance ask the recognised managers and the football players of their respective teams. I am talking about players like Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Michael Carrick, Daley Blind etc. read more

Football Fans- The 12th Man

It is generally said that the supporters act as the twelfth man in a game of eleven, and it is true. Why else would there be “home” and “away” matches… Football is probably soon becoming the common language in the world. It, not only is “a beautiful game” to watch and play, it’s more than that; it embodies the spirit of a particular community, it represents vast herds of people united behind the ideal of one team. All those unheard voices amongst the many, now behind in support of their team, heard; vividly, fiercely and unanimously. It truly is a gesture of conformity in the face of the “visitors” and the pride in the sense of belonging by calling home “home”. read more
