Kick present officials who are there in the helm of affiars for their own survival and not in the interest of the game. I feel those who had played in international matches should be put in the helm of affairs, because of experience. Secondly they should have 15 years plan: catch them young - take youngsters, adopt them as future players, give money to the parents of the child you have adopted till he earns by playing matches, should undergo rigorous training in football as well as other stamina biilding exercises. Youth alone can play well and aged ones should be provided off ground work.

I think you mean European Football, otherwise known as soccer here in north america. Some idiot took Rugby and put a little armor on it and called it Football and made the whole sports world difficult for everyone.

THEY SHOULD CATCH THEM YOUNG. The rich clubs in Calcutta shold adopt 30 youngsters (age between 12-16 years) and give them 2 rigorous training in football, so that Indian Foodball will be recognized in Asian level, if not in world cup.

firstly...no one is redy to play as a team...then dre is this biassing in the recruitment to the team...which in done by the selection committee...all over this its the political influence.... we should invest more money...raise the level of the club football in india...the winning of afc cup by the east bengal shows that we have the talents... place a good platform for the young talents...and give the game as much importance which is given to the cricket...

I'm sorry, but I don't think Indian people are ment to be footballers. It's their destiny to engage in more mental stuff than material ones. If that makes you sad, I'm sorry. That's my opinion.

Indian football team has got nothing right. The players are not fit enough to compete other nations. Recently Indian football team digested 7 goals from Saudi Arab. Among the 7 goals the five goals came after half time. This shows that the team has no power.

Shh has exactly the right mentality. To be really successful you need to be catching young players and setting them up for life, a lot of growth in football happens at a young age. Most clubs in England won’t consider accepting anyone that hasn’t been with them since 6 upwards these days, to get into football you have to start young.

Indian football ... you mean soccer... no?? My opinion is that any sports that involves competition is strictly related to the quality of the competitors and to the off-court games and arangements... Every sport has a public side and a hidden side... the public side is to get money and to atract viewers and people at matches... the hidden side is to serve someone`s interest... usually a group so they can manage the business which all sports are... so... considering these try yourself to make a picture of who is indian surving and what are the expectations of the one`s they serve... cause saying that they serve a public is nothing but a marketing idea... and not the truth...
