W2W4: ISL resumes with Maharashtra derby, Kochi party

Pune have been unbeaten in Mumbai since 2014

The Indian Super League (ISL) will resume on Wednesday after an international break, and the first nine matches have already produced their share of upsets and breakout performances at either end of the points table. 

What are the things to watch for when Delhi Dynamos host ATK to kick-start the next phase of matches?

The unlikely contenders for top of the table

 

Chennaiyin FC have long been known as slow starters, but even head coach John Gregory would be surprised at the poor output...

How can the AIFF resolve the Gourav Mukhi controversy?

Gourav Mukhi scores against Bengaluru FC on debut - and with it kicks off a controversy that is threatening to engulf his career.
Gourav Mukhi scores against Bengaluru FC on debut - and with it kicks off a controversy that is threatening to engulf his career.

Gourav Mukhi's goal for Jamshedpur FC, and the speculation over his actual age since, has brought the focus on Indian football's battle with age discrepancies into sharp focus.

Here's a simple solution for the young man -- and for the All India Football Federation (AIFF), which has made known its verbal opposition to age fraud. Have the player take an age-verification test like the Tanner-Whitehouse III (TW3) and clear his name. The alternative for him is to have his name linked with age fraud and...

With the Bengaluru-Jamshedpur Indian Super League (ISL) clash on a knife-edge at the Kanteerava Stadium on Sunday, substitute Gourav Mukhi pulled the visitors level with a quality goal. The broadcasters identified him as a 16-year-old, (the age also stated on the ISL website) making him the youngest goalscorer in ISL history.

Last season, Bengaluru topped the ISL league table with 40 points -- eight clear of their nearest rivals, Chennaiyin FC. The football they played over the course of the tournament had been at a level unmatched by anyone else in it. No team conceded fewer goals. Only Goa scored more. Their goal difference, at the end of the league, stood at 19 -- five ahead of the Goans and 14 ahead of Chennai.

In the final, they dominated for vast swathes. They kept the ball well. They moved the ball well. They...

ISL 2018-19: Top five debutants to watch out for

Tim Cahill is the biggest name in the ISL this season.
Tim Cahill is the biggest name in the ISL this season.

"Where are the marquee signings?" I can hear you yell. "Where are the Berbatovs and the Forlans and the Del Pieros?"

Hopefully the answer to all that is: "Consigned to history."

The ISL seems to have moved away from the idea that signing a big, big, name -- irrespective of current form or state of physical fitness -- guarantees success and is moving towards a more holistic, 'let's buy people that our sides actually need' philosophy that most sensible footballing entities ought to follow. As Kerala...
