All i am saying that coaches record should be the arbiter of his success. Your contention is that a record is not sustainable, so a coach relying on astrology should be fired. , but if coach is already showing sustained success, what is the basis for firing him?

Is it not like saying, this bowler has an action that is unlike anyone that has played cricket internationally, so he should not be selected for national team). Yes, the injury risk may be greater for such bowlers, but as long as player is successful why not leverage his ability irrespective of his unconventional action.

I suspect we may be wasting time on this astrology story. This looks basically like political mischief to me. The veracity of many details in the leaked stories is questionable and things don't add up too well. We have seen, before, this kind of thing done by politicians and their media friends to achieve whatever they are trying to achieve. Stimac has shown results as a coach and he deserves to stay for now. If more people come out with trustworthy allegations against the coach, we should revisit and discuss more. For now, let us wait and see what transpires before making final judgments for or against Coach Stimac.

This is not about Stimac as much as it is about the general use of an astrologer in team selection. I’m indifferent to Stimac. I think he’s done okay and should stay. But consulting an astrologer in an official capacity is nonsense.

With atithee. When suresh posted nobody replied because we thought it was a one off. I must confess I did not read the article. Then, when the political angle to remove him came up, then I read the details and got involved in the discussion.

Some really good news today. Our coach will be there for the next three years! I was really worried, with the recent astrologer stuff and the botched-up Asiad (not Stimac's fault) that AIFF might fall back into dysfunction and get rid of the coach just because they want to look like they are doing something. Thankfully, no. Stimac is extended till 2026 and if we make it to world cup group-3 qualifying, he will get a further 2 more years.

Igor Stimac stays: AIFF extends contract of Indian football men’s team coach till 2026

Good job AIFF. And congratulations, coach. We need you! :dance:

[On X formerly known as twitter, the Indian football fans seem to be celebrating. The fans do appreciate the coach.]

We expect India to be stronger against us: Malaysia head coach Kim Pan-gon

Malaysia are set to host India for the opening game of the 2023 Merdeka Tournament on Friday, 13 October.

The Malaysian coach will be lining up his side to face India for the first time in his managerial stint with them. When asked about the strengths of India and elements he wants his players to be wary off, he explained: “As we all know, they are ranked higher than us. They are a top team in West Asia. We know that their characteristics are very aggressive. They work hard and are tough. That kind of element in any opponent team will be very tough.

India lost 2-4. Apparently the referee was bought by Malaysia (so many twitter messages already) and allowed a goal that was not a goal and generally made sure that India didn't stand a chance.

Yep. Against Cambodia. It was Stephen Constantine's first match as coach, after just a couple of weeks at his job. He is a good coach for sure.

I've never seen so many grown men cry, says Pakistan coach after rare win (Reuters)

Well, coach, you have not been to any cricket match between the bugs and the exterminators, have you?

India just won in Kuwait 1-0! woohoo

Huge win! A draw in Kuwait would have been already a great start for the WCQ campaign but this is fantastic. :)

In the other game in our group Qatar won 8—1 against Afghanistan.

So beautiful, so elegant, it’s just looking like a Wow!

Beating Kuwait at home in a qualifier is a BIG deal. Congrats.
