Could we please capitalize T in tournaments in the title of this thread? Major words in titles should be capitalized. :p
Done, but any further requests for title modifications on this thread will be summarily dismissed :) .... Mod, Jay

Re: Indian Junior football

lol :-) [it's actually sad] Absolutely. It's distressing. Sometimes I feel that Indians are the most gullible people out there right now in the world. This includes many of the Indian friends I have in the US, based on all the whatsapp groups I am on. More than 90% of them believe all the fake news...

I haven't posted on this forum in a while.
Good to see you! Thanks for the link. I think podcasts are not big in India. They need to get on whatsapp with some fake news. That is all that Indians care for.

No saag I hope?
Or, God forbid, any gender issues. Mugu, your take?
The longer Mugu takes to respond, the more worried I become. But he was here yesterday predicting that she would win it. I suspect he wouldn't do that and would only stay quiet if he had any doubts.

An unnecessary controversy about an AFI tweet that mentioned her lack of fluency in English - AFI tweet to Hima Das provokes backlash
I think AFI didn't mean to belittle her, but they were damn stupid in drawing attention to this, thinking it would be a taken as a compliment!

Re: $15K Women's ITF - Indonesia & Hong Kong July 2018

You need these kind of losses to improve. As long as it comes after 2-3 wins also, it is all good. Like I said, if one is getting about 3 matches on average per event on the pro circuit, skipping juniors won't hurt you. But missing out on making news at grand slams can't help on the sponsorship fron...

Re: $15K Women's ITF - Indonesia & Hong Kong July 2018

I will begin to feel okay about Mahak skipping the juniors, if she continues to get 3 or 4 matches often at pro events, like this. Great job!!

Hima is the best woman runner we have had since PT Usha, based on the u19 record so far, right?

Re: Tennis Asian Games 2018, Indonesia - Jakarta Palembang 2018

Yes, selecting Sumit for doubles is rather silly. Any one of Vishnu, Bala or Jeevan should have been selected to partner Leander. Is anything involving Leander ever without some drama? This was crazy. Why Sumit now, when he is in such an elongated slump? Rohan-Divij can be formidable medal contende...

Re: Champions Trophy Hockey, Breda,Netherlands, June 23-July 1 2018

We looked solid in defence. Lots of hard running by all the team denied teams easy access into our D in every single match (a glaring shortcoming that we failed to address for decades). Trapping and tackling at the back was brilliant. Special mention for Surender Kumar (who wasn't selected for the ...

Why the hell are we always so awful at converting penalty strokes??
Looks like that is the next thing for Harendra to fix. A lot of other problems looked fixed.
