  • let the group A matches be held in india & we get telecast

    Hopefully the AFC will adopt a UEFA type way of qualification in which we play 2 qualification games once every 2-3 months. In this case it would be 2 every 2 months. That way we could change the squad when needed and it gives chances for other youngsters to get better. Also it gives the AIFF a chance to expose the under-22 squad to other smaller stadiums in India like Hyderabad, Kerala, Mumbai, Sikkim, Punjab, Chennai etc and it gives the squad a taste of whats it like to travel away from home and come back.

    Actually never mind. I just saw that the qualifiers are from June 23rd to July 3rd. YAY!!!! 5 games in around 10 days. What will the AFC come up with next. <!-- s:handgestures-thumbdown: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/handgestures/thumbdown.gif" alt=":handgestures-thumbdown:" title="Thumb Down" /><!-- s:handgestures-thumbdown: -->

    Strongest group in the qualifiers.Iraq, UAE,Oman and Lebanon WTF , but still there is a chance, have to perform well and the most important thing is play International friendlies(Not 2 week camp in Dubai playing Local reserves sides.) <!-- s:pray: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/eusa/pray.gif" alt=":pray:" title="Pray" /><!-- s:pray: -->

    Coming to Squad coach has to select players based on performance not on his record of being U-19 player etc.

    <!-- s:bow-plusone: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bow/plusone.gif" alt=":bow-plusone:" title="PlusOne" /><!-- s:bow-plusone: --> ya we should really think of getting some excellent results to get all eyes rolling and for that we might need to get the best teams at disposal in the qualifiers also
  • Right now the Number 1 problem is not players. Its the coach and right now Pailan Group want a South Korean. Come on! What will that do. Sure the Koreans have some good coaches but there record outside of Korea is very questionable. I say we go after a good Dutch, Spanish, German, English, French or Brazilian coach.

    My Choices:
    Frans Adelaar (Dutch)
    Eddy Achterberg (Dutch - Notable)
    Co Adriaanse (Dutch)
    Stanley Menzo (Dutch - Notable)
    Thomas Rongen (Very Notable and Dutch)
    Horst Hrubesch (German - Notable)
    Dieter Eilts (German - Notable)
    Jürgen Kohler (German - Notable)
    Juan Ramón López Caro (Spanish - Notable)
    Iñaki Sáez (Spanish - Notable)
    Howard Wilkinson (English)
    Gérald Baticle (French)
    Mauro Galvão (Brazilian)

    Now if we want we can also go after a good Indian coach like..
    Gift Raikhan: Current coach of the Pune FC Academy Under-19s. He understands what it is like to be coach of a proper youth set-up and so far his Pune FC U19 guys have done well.

    And thats it. I dont really trust any other Indian coach. Maybe Khalid Jamil or Santosh Kashyap but that is it.

    ya they can give a try on santosh kashyap who has proved his talent as a good coach to get best of less known players and get some positive results if not him then may a south american or dutch or spanish coach for the job

    I think there might be some talented guys in division 2 also,who can be in this list. Some players from RWFC maybe ???
  • A nice idea to scout for best U-22. Everyone is given equal chance to prove themselves. Even the selector are well reliable. All in all a good move.

    We will surely qualify for AFC U - 22. <!-- s:pray: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/eusa/pray.gif" alt=":pray:" title="Pray" /><!-- s:pray: --> <!-- s:pray: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/eusa/pray.gif" alt=":pray:" title="Pray" /><!-- s:pray: --> <!-- s:pray: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/eusa/pray.gif" alt=":pray:" title="Pray" /><!-- s:pray: -->
