Meet the 'new' COACH

Politics….politics and more politics!!!
Hmm….Whatmore jumped the gun that eventually backfired!
Dravid and gang want some ‘Phorener’ coach, and all oldies are opposing their demand, referring to Chappel fiasco. They want some Indian to take this post.

It’s very much clear that Gavaskar is the man calling the shots, first he heaped loads of praises on Chappel and then was first one to start questioning his abilities and made some nasty remarks. So kinda complete U –turn from his earlier stands.

And then he quashed Whatmore’s claims etc, and he brought in John Emburey out of nowhere; Gavaskar was one of my all time greats, and now he is losing respect, specially for his uncalled statements about David Hookes, and now all this politics to please his brother-in- law.

Amidst all this, I get this feeling that there is much more than to all this Ford-Emburey drama, something tells me next coach is going to be G.Vishwanath.

IMHO , any day an outsider is much better than any Indian like Kapil Dev or Madan Lal etc.., reason is simple we are very emotional people, and handling BCCI is also not an easy task, Indian coaches end up pleasing BCCI heads, succumb ling to zonal pressures and hell lot of other stuff.

Lets see, who is next in line, either its gonna be any other interim arrangement or G.Vishwanath all the way.

Irrespective of who becomes the final coach, you can't help but wonder how BCCI manages to screw up everything each time round. How can there be positive growth of the team in an environment like this?

absolutely agree on the foreign coaches.. at least we get to hear some variety in the excuses ;)

just get anyone who is good at HR stuff plus some technology, get another chappel and same disaster.

a bladie from india = no technology ( assumption )

one serious question : u don't need any work ex for this naukri ? Vishwanath ke pass to hai nahi shayad ?

@@ Parth:: This is seriously disgusting, how they manage it every time, be it 'Telecast-rights' or other deals, they always manage to create one or another controversy, some buffons are running the show, I wonder the criteria for getting a post in BCCI, who are these guys Ratnakar Shetty or Niranjan Shah, and that businessman Modi.....whole set up drives me crazy!!!

@@Manuscrypts:: Infact BCCI favours foreigners but for entirely different reason, they always need a scapegoat for recurring debacles

@@Alok:: Very true, there is absolutely no pre-requistes’to get job there, anyone who is well connected can become ‘Coach’ or Manager’ of the team
