Bullish,Bull-shit Bolton and other news…

Arsenal played Bolton this Saturday, as always this trip was a tough one. Now, no one can argue that Arsenal cant withstand the physicality of the game. Dynamo Kiev and Bolton in a stretch proved that. Through their direct football Bolton was the first one to score and they did that through Kevin Davies – the biggest dick head in the Bolton team. Later on in the game he took crunching lunge at Clichy which kept the player out of the game for the rest of the match, such a dick is kevin.

The team responded very well after going down, they constantly harried Bolton with series of attacks which saw Adebayor and Song hitting the post. The goal had to come and it did through and unusual source – Eboue. he did put up a good performance on the right hand side. Some notable performers are Bendtner, Denilson, Song, Eboue and Almunia. On the whole the team did put up a good show.

The only glitch being the inability of the team in defending set pieces and sorts through which Bolton were trying to score a goal. I hope the team starts working on this as teams might identify this as a weakens of ours and will start exploiting this. On the whole, it was a good performance and it takes us to the top of the league. I know at this point, it doesnt make much of sense, still you know it is the TOP.

Now on to football here in India. Though i track almost all the news that emerge about Indian Football, i cant make statements about football in Goa, Bengal, North East and the other parts of India. Then i am left out with Kerala and this time around the Kerala Football Association with the help of AFC is trying to re-structure the club league in kerala. The format being adopted is a “home and away” system in which 2 cities will be hosting the matches. From the outset it does look like a good idea to have such a system but for the clubs who still work on shoe-string budgets, can they thrive in such a situation? I am not too sure. I can only hope that AFC does study the reality and help Kerala to bounce back!! Now that Meghalaya defeated us 1-0 in the 31st Sub Junior National Football Championships for the Mir Iqbal Hussain Trophy in Mahilpur.
