SC East bengal FC 1-1 Kerala blasters FC

Feeling for the fans of this 2 great clubs. Come on man.

Technically when I see the match what I see beautiful counter attacking football from SCEB. But problem is finishing. The result could have been 5 or 6 GD.

Dropping Balwant great call. Introduction of Rafique in the playing 11 great call. Pilkington and rafique played well in the right. Maghoma was on left, what I personally don’t like. Although he is good but when the goal move was happening maghoma was in the right that is his place.

Stainman was good and as usually Scot Navil was BAD.
SCEB need to find substitute of him. His team has that player but he needs to respect indian players over this particular foreign signing.

Tomba was impressive, counter attacking tactics was good but finishing boss needs way more improvement.

While defending a set piece zonal marking will not work in india or in asian football circuit. The players height varry a lot here so you have to go for Man marking. This basic home work is expected from Robby when he comes to manage a team Like SCEB. He needs to understand the legacy of the club, Indian coaching staffs need to tell him this words.

Talking about KBFC ok. One of the most expensive club in ISL. Most expensive player Garry Hooper. I’ll call him show piece. Harsh word sorry this 10 cr. Rs player will not even score 10 goals in season. Waste of money. Samad came in the second half brilliant talent, ozil of india, with the ball very confident. Costa was giving his 200 % for the team. Talking about Albino the goal keeper , he confused me totally. Some briliant save and following some hideous faults. Need to focus more on the game.

At last SCEB should have won but if you navil in your team you have to start a game considering one nil down. Ridiculous.


Mumbai City FC turned on the magic at the Tilak Maidan Stadium and ended Hyderabad FC’s unbeaten start to the season. Vignesh Dakshinamurthy’s thumping volley gave Sergio Lobera’s side the lead before Adam Le Fondre sealed the points with his 5th goal of the season. The result means the Islanders conclude 2020 on a winning note!
