Time For Introspection

It's not the first time India has been relegated to the also-rans in the World Cup, but now we are showing signs of our inability to fix the problems. Such situations need drastic measures, which if delayed might lead to Indian hockey simply fading a

A Bitter Pill To Swallow

Sep 18, 2006 Pargat Singh

Falling behind South Korea and Pakistan was bad enough and now it is even Japan. And there will also be Malaysia to contend with in the Asian Games. The Indians must wake up now.

Motivation A Problem Now

The playoffs for minor positions are games that teams must play. It is such situations that test the ability of team officials to motivate the boys to go out and give their best.

The Same Old Story

Pargat Singh

Repeatedly cracking under pressure at the closing stages does not do credit to a team in any grade of hockey, leave alone an international side. Updates

Acute Embarrassment

Pargat Singh

The tactics the team has adopted left everyone surprised. It was as if we were playing for draws every time we got on to the turf, and scoring goals was not in our plan of things.

A Shocker!

Pargat Singh

India confined themselves into a defensive shell and allowed England to dominate so much that it was embarrassing. India did not just lose the match, they might have lost some of the respect that our teams get inspite of slipping from the podium deca

A Job Half Done

Pargat Singh

Indian hockey has lamented wasted opportunities at the start of major tournaments for several decades. The same story was repeated in the opening contest against Germany, where the team came close to the country's best start for a long time.

A Test Of Character

Pargat Singh

Keeping in mind the Indian team's inconsistency in big events, I will be very happy to see the side figure in the semi-finals, for from there anything can happen. But realistically, that is going to be very tough.

Flowing Game Need Of The Hour

Pargat Singh

The trademark of sub-continental game is smooth, aggressive and attacking hockey. India have forgotten their own strength and are falling back too often, and unnecessarily at that. Surely, the team management has realised the team are vulnerable on

A Lot To Worry About

Pargat Singh

One final fling at a medal is still left, and my fear is that if we get that, we might gloss over all that is wrong with this team. Believe me, there is a lot wrong there.

Mistakes All The Way

Pargat Singh

The Indians looked disjointed and there was little co-ordination between the midfield and the forwards. Basics like trapping, too, seemed poor. At this level, a coach cannot be expected to correct such basic problems.

A Win At Last!

Pargat Singh

A win always changes the mindset of a team, which is going through a trying period. I hope this will be a turnaround of sorts for India in this tournament.

India Lacking Consistency

Pargat Singh

Consistency, that one important word in sport, is missing right now. Once the team finds that, rest will follow in place.

Defence Led To Defeat

Pargat Singh

Spain deserved the win only because they were making moves and making attempts. Indians hardly had a look at the rival goal.

A Lot To Look Forward To

Pargat Singh

The junior World Cup is next year and many of the players who played the series against Pakistan will be in the team. They have now got the taste of top class hockey and more is to come during the Champions Trophy.

Skipper Tirkey An Asset

Pargat Singh

As the senior man, he shows a lot of maturity and is able to get the best out of the side. Tirkey is indeed an asset in the defence and when he is leading, the team looks more purposeful.
