Yes, another stupid decision by Hockey India ... They removed Harendra Singh stating a disappointing 2018 and has been again offered a charge of coaching the junior squad.

Expected knee jerk reaction by Hockey India to sack a coach which is the easiest thing to do. Now spend some more time to find another one and then spend few more months for that coach to settle with the team. Time running out for Tokyo 2020.

Tokyo 2020 is a write off (if we even qualify!)

Expected stupidity from Batra and his cronies. We have wasted decades because of utterly useless idiots who have no interest in getting results. Who needs enemies when we have scum like this.

How many coaches have we tried? No real improvement (apart from Walsh and maybe Oltmans)? Any sensible person can work out that our players are not good enough and the best way to get medals at world level is raise the standard of domestic hockey. Have some kind of structured league system, if not nationally, at least in each state and then quality and quantity will improve. However, HI will not do this, but sack a coach who is saddled with at least 4-5 substandard players in every squad. The players remain but the coach is always sacked. Laughable nonsense.
