Indian football

Sportolysis hardly needs an introduction. One of India's best sports blogs, it covers a wide spectrum of sports and sport-related issues. For a single-person effort, it is surprisingly regular and consistently good.

As part of the Visitors series, Pratyush has invited me to write for Sportolysis -- a piece on the state of Indian football. Please to read, dear reader, and share your opinions / insights on the same.

Great Work VK... That was a splendid essay which delineated the current state of Indian Football... I dont think that the lower standard of football in India alone is responsible for hindering the influx of foreign professionals into our league; When something like the Cristiano Junior incident happens, it makes it all the more difficult to rope in star players from Africa and other Asian Countries.. Remember Junior was the highest paid footballer in India when he signed up for East Bengal in 2004.. The medical infrastucture at the grounds during the matches is a far cry from that in other countries.. just as u ve opined, a judicious use of the money can help the game's progress in India..
