<font face="Arial, Verdana" size="2">I am just wondering. Is there no way for Mumbai FC to play a few matches at another much smaller stadium till the Cooperage is done. I am just wondering because I discovered that an MLS team called FC Dallas played here for one season before there new stadium opened...</font><div><font face="Arial, Verdana" size="2"><br></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana" size="2">http://www.worldstadiums.com/stadium_pictures/north_america/united_states/texas/southlake_dragon1.jpg</font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana" size="2"><br></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana" size="2">I mean that was 1st tier soccer right there.

    <br><div><br></div><div>My guess would be that it would need to be a joint venture between ONGC, Mumbai and Air India? Oh well. Angels it is. They should at least try for other options.</div>

    Father Agnel ground has no wooden stands, and no dressing room facilities !<div><br></div><div>Look at pictures from AIFF seminar , it is a training ground and cannot be used for matches.</div><div><br></div><div>A lot of the FIFA turfs ( i know this isn't ) have been laid on practice grounds and not stadiums specifically for this reason</div>

    Thanks. God worried. He was taken off via stretcher and never came back on. So he actually had an injury. Would be a shame for the lad.

    injury is nothing serious... he may be rested if coach feels he needs some time for rest
  • Thats good. Yep, he needs a rest. His first 10 games in I-League have been promising. Slow but good.
