I saw the top 10 goals the other day, some really good stuff in there.

Goa and Kerala

And they're supposed to be the most passionate football areas in India

Kerala is actually playing some really creative football, probably the most passing/creative type team in the league. But horrid horrid finishers. They put too much trust in Michael Chopra whose tummy is hanging out in lumps at the moment. Got benched after the first two games. Then there is a chap called Iain Hume who's the only one who seems capable of putting the ball in. Also Kerala has 5 away games first up. I still have hope they'll start getting results soon.

Goa on the other hand has been really bad. Zico has done nothing positive.

Best teams so far - Atletico de Kolkata, Chennaiyin and Delhi Dynamos.

Best player has been Elano by a countrymile. No surprise as he's the only top player in the league who's not past his prime.

The Elano?

Kerala should offer Jardel one final payday and try and get him back in shape. Just cross it into him.

Yeah, the Elano.

Anelka has debuted yesterday btw after his Quenelle ban. Kinda flopped though.

He was good in the youth teams, but never made anything after he was promoted to Internacional first team.

He played with Pato and Luiz Adriano (or just before them, not sure).


I support GOA because psytrance

So average attendance is behind only the top 4 European leagues: http://www.firstpost.com/sports/isl-...d-1800615.html

Duration and novelty plays a part of course, but this is a great start.

Probably 2030. We've got the U-17 world cup in 2017. They are pushing to host Club World Cups and U-20 World Cup just after that. Then the plan is to qualify for WC 2026 and to host WC 2030.

So many flavours to choose from in India,we have 2-3 months of Cricket,Hockey,Kabbadi,Football and starting in December,Tennis.Federer is going to be there along with Djokovic,Serena William.10 years back we just had The National Team Cricket Matches to go to.

Its a different feeling altogether to experience the first world problems of your regional football team not performing.

Never underestimate the power of Bollywood. You can sell ice to an Eskimo if Ranbir Kapoor is sponsoring it.

So Kerala Blasters have steadily worked their way to 3rd spot. 1 point behind leaders. We've been the most creative team all along and now with defensive solidity (1 goal conceded in last 5 matches) and slightly better finishing, things are looking up.

Iain Hume is really the key man. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iain_Hume Very intelligent and skillful, often burdened with finishing the moves as well..

But we did have a Muntari ghost goal moment to benefit us in the last game against Kolkata. Ironically, Luis Garcia was the player whose goal got disallowed - naturally cosmic justice paying him back for his ghost goal against Chelsea all those years ago.

http://www.starsports.com/football/l...814/index.html

Kerala crowd is brilliant too. I had gone for their last away match here in Delhi. Kerala fans outshouted the Delhi guys easily.. Del Piero is a little painful to watch nowadays. Nothing he tried was working that day - easily marked and controlled.

It is the future. 48,000 is the average attendance for Blasters home matches. Can anyone in Serie A match that. And eventually we may look at Maldivian clubs as well.

I will support the fuck out of a club that takes in a Maldivian player. Like I will legit watch their matches and buy jerseys and shit.
