    This season ISL games are boring. Most of the teams are looking toothless upfront. Jamshedpur lacking a goal-scorer. Player like Ogbeche/Mauricio at-max need 2 chances to score a goal. 

    Even with the players Chhangte, Greg, Diaz & Bipin, Mumbai city looking poor. El Khayati needs some time to gel properly with the players.

    Should've scored a couple of time but Irfan Yadwad has good potential. His first touch, his pace and his physicality is pretty good. 

    Should be playing more

    FT East Bengal 1-1 Chennaiyin FC

    East Bengal seems fated to endure another poor season: porous defence as usual, plus totally clueless striking department!!

    Lack of clarity

    “People are unpaid for over four months, depending on when they have joined the club and whether they are players and staff. There is no clarity over payment. We have been lied to since July. Every month a new date is promised and invariably missed,” a person inside the club told News9 Sports.

    “There was no food on the training ground before the Kerala Blasters (November 25) and NorthEast (December 10) games as the caterer refused to work due to pending payment,” he added, refusing his identity to be revealed as it could jeopardise his owed money.

    The club management hasn’t been forthcoming with any information too, adding to the sense of disillusionment and fear, leading to players writing to FIFA and the AIFF. The club is currently serving a transfer ban for owing Nigerian striker Bartholomew Ogbeche money for his two years at the club from 2021-22. Several others are mulling to follow suit, which could multiply the club’s woes.

    Even when payments have been paid, like one done last week, they have been done discreetly and selectively, like in the case of Alanis, who issued a stern warning before ending his career abruptly.

    Future up in the air

    Information in short supply has increased the frequency of rumours, with word on the street saying the club is trying to rope in a new investor. But here too, nothing can be said with certainty as the club hasn’t been forthcoming about it even to its employees.

    “The management hasn’t addressed as a group about future plans even though promising full information and money coming in. There is no confirmation about a new investor, only hope, as these talks have floated in the air since October,” disclosed the source.

    There has been no communication from owner Varun Tirupaneni either, who hasn’t attended training sessions regularly, appearing only once at the start of the season when he addressed the team.

    Repeated calls and messages to Tirupaneni went unanswered with a club spokesperson saying: “As of now we have nothing to share. We are not commenting on anything on what people are saying but we won’t comment unless we have anything specific to talk about.”

    When sought, the ISL too didn’t offer any comment.

    If you have the money pay it. If not find an investor or declare bankruptcy. This guy Varun has money and is not bankrupt. He just does not want to put that money in football which he knows he will never get back. What is worse is atleast football players if partially paid can somehow stay afloat. The groundsmen and the other low level employees are also not paid like the caterer. They should just shut down at this point if they can't find an investor. They are not doing any justice to humanity forget football. There are some things which are far more important than football. It is about being morally right. This guy Varun should be sent to Jail for the repeat offences. I hope every one including the staff not just the players sue this guy.
