Week 6 : Start of the week where we separate the the men from the boys ( No-U22 rule)

Match Week 6 brings some added spice due to the ineptitude of the AIFF ( Nationals team & I_league departments)

Having chosen to randomly select a squad to destabilise the title runs , some teams have rightly objected and began to withdraw their players from Lee Johnson's ill-advised squad.

East Bengal will look to bounce back from the points dropped at home versus BFC , what better than having the new boys Aizawl FC arrive in Kolkata. 
East Bengal will be bereft of TP Rehenesh and Narayan Das , but as both have been rathe insignificant in the opening 4 matches , and both were to blame for the goal conceded , this might be a blessing in disguise for them.
Aizawl FC meanwhile will be at full strength , as the AIFF scouts use the same travel agent as Ten Action , and can't seem to get the logistics arranged to view the team that has the most U23 players !

AFC all attack versus the surgical precision of the Ranty Martin led EB should be a veritable GOAL FEST. East Bengal defence will struggle to cope with the AFC wingers, but Ranty will have enough house to nick a few goals to add to his tally. It's these games where the Nigerian normally boosts his goal tally and secrets another year in India


Saturday will BFC return to their Fortress of Kanteerava where they last demolished Lajong. The Blues were unimpressive on the road , but have picked up the knack of Champions , winning while playing badly. The reliable of duo handled Ranty Martins as they normally do, the Nigerian hit man has yet to score past the English pairing. They hold a similar shutout record against Ranty's fellow Nigerian marksman Odafa Okolie. Sporting Goa come into the match minus their midfield mainstay Rowlin Borgess, but with Denson Devdas & Amna returning to fitness, the midfield trio with Denzil Theobold will be as experienced as any . Not many teams can boast of midfielders with 170 International games under their belt !! 
The game will also see if BFC new signing Michael Collins will be able replacement for Joshua Walker , an area they have struggled to fix after erroneously retiring Johnny Menyongar after their maiden title win.
CK Vineeth will start in the absence of Udanta Singh ,his partnership with Kim Seong-Yong could be what decides if the Blues will be contenders or just a thorn in the Kolkata giants.
Victorian's return could be the spark of pace that SCdeGoa need to break open the BFC defence and end the Goan clubs' abysmal record against the Bangaloreans .


If the above 2 goal feasts are satiate the fans appetite , Ten Action have ensured you will be saved of the bore draw that is to follow in Pune.
Derricks dire DSK team will take on the draw specialists Mumbai FC , in what will prove a few things...
Can we see Mumbai FC with their Japanese pace, and cohesive team , put to bed a poor DSK team , and ensure Mumbai FC are genuine contenders for a top 3 spot.
DSK will have to get back to the drawing board if they lose another game , and certainly BUY a striker if they fail to find the net for a 5th game running.


The 4th game of this round has been moved to the 17th .... thanks to Sunando Dhar realising that China might border India but it isn't that close !!
