Indian Hockey lost the fame [Long Live Indian Hockey]

It was shocking to see Indian Hockey Team didn’t even qualify for the Olympics. It wasn’t shocking news for me as it was bound to happen one day, Post Dharnraj  Pillay Era of Indian Hockey is pathetic and the way he was made to sit out of national team is even worse.

I don’t to put blame on Indian Hockey Team as they have some to talented players.  there is to much politics going on in IHF, players like viren kept out.

Modern Hockey has changed a lot earlier they used to do lot of stick work, I still feel indians or best at it, but modern Hockey needs long passes and lot of running and co-ordination that indian team lacks.

Now the question about how to make Indian team better

Either go with Dhanraj Pillay as Coach as he understands better and played lot of Hockey and i still feel he is the best forward in the world till date.

or go with foriegn coach as the way they approach the game is different and they bring in lot of changes into traditional Indian Hockey.

Lastly there is no need to Panic as Even Indian Cricket team got exited from WorldCup 2007 in first round then now everything got changed they defeated Australia in thier own backyard that no other team has done before.

They lost only to Great-Britain everything lost but no need to panic carvalho is good coach and he had potential but do take help from other seniors like Dhanraj pillay to make Indian Hockey to regain it’s past glory and pride.

Hope many may argue with this post but that’s what i felt….

    Hockey has changed, all the gold medals we won on grass, and today hockey is played on Astroturf. Since the introduction of AT, we haven’t even managed to reach the semi-finals of an international hockey tournament. Indian hockey has been going down hill for a long time now, But i guess this Olympic loss can act as a tipping point in Indian hockey & result in sweeping changes in the way we played our hockey and administrated it…..
