    Compared to Bengaluru, the "Tigers" (Hull Tigers? :p) have done not much in preparation for the I-League. Only 1 foreigner from the Senegalese leagues and he was not super effective in the 2nd Division and a few okay signings.<div><br></div><div>Also, off the field has been a disaster. Where will they play? Where will they train long-term? How will they gain fan support? Where is the marketing? Is there any chance to engage with supporters? Where are the sponsors? Where are the "Silvestre's" that were talked about?</div><div><br></div><div>I am a fan of adding direct-entry sides into the I-League because if they are done the way Bengaluru is handled (at least from what we see so far) then it can be good but for now this is just below-par. There logo also stinks :p.</div>

    Mumbai Tigers off the field has been almost like PSU clubs.

    Its funny though. When Dodsal announced the team it was all about them but as soon as JSW came out with a team things have gone completely quiet.

    Either that or they are really big game players who are trying to use these 3 years to build  up the club well and not invest much on the team itself...wishful thinking :P

    <br><div><br></div><div>Its possible. I doubt they would sabotage there team on purpose because of no relegation (complete garbage). You need to make fans and not investing in your squad on purpose without reason would be ridiculous. Specially in Mumbai where attracting a crowd is very hard.</div>
