i just wonder how our transfer system works....this system should be made more professorial with proper transfer fees and long agreements for players which can help the teams and players...
“We want to convert the Rabindra Sarovar into a world class stadium. It shall be made at any cost, be it Rs. 100 crore or Rs. 150 crore. We are waiting for the formalities to get completed,” Patel revealed
Man! This guy is serious abt Indian Football. RESPECT
The thing i want to see the most by 2018 india must have
1000 A licence coach
1250 B licence coach
1500 C licence coach
100 fifa refs
250 afc refs
500 aiff refs
The only thing i wish to improve is :
1)Teams like HAL,Air India,ONGC,BEML,SBT,JCT have done a novial job of keeping the indian football atleast alive in our country in the recent years,..now that AFC is tightening the screws for AFC standards.
The institutional clubs would find it difficult to survive in the coming years. so these guys need to build a fan base.. JCT matches are played in front of empty stands..the club being so important to indian football. look what happened to Mahindra united... A simple solutio is to get attached to a city similiar to a structure adopted in the K league.. we can have teams renamed as HAL Bengaluru Raptors,Navi mumbai Air India,JCT Ludhiana Fighters,ONGC Kolhapur Marathas.why will people go to see the mathces of air india ,but they will definately see if it is Navi Mumbai Air India FC.. then the clubs can cash on the merchandise,ticket sales,etc.... i think this is the only way forward to the institutional clubs...
2) Matches compulsory on weekends and under floodlights ..football will die if this doesnt happens.
3) Federation cup,DUrand cup to be accomodated within the calender like FA cup.
4) reserve league jus before the original games starts ...say PFC B vs USFC B jus 2 hours before the original I league match between PFC and USFC starts...
5) merchandising man this trick the clubs needs to learn quickly...i dont see any flags,baners for any game apart form the clubs in kolkata and NOrth east....
