Critics Corner.

Opinions. And LOTS of them.

The Snobs


V( extreme left) – Loves Barcelona and everything to do with them especially Messi. Hates Arsenal (especially Henry) with a passion. Obviously, greatest moment as a sports fan came when Barcelona won the Champions League in 2006 beating Arsenal in the final. Henry messing up two brilliant opportunities made it all the more sweeter!

Has this ability to come up with brilliant predictions at times although his last two predictions that Arsenal and Spain would win the Champions League and World Cup respectively have gone SPECTACULARLY wrong! Has tentative plans of getting to South Africa in 2010 for the World Cup.

Doesnt care too much for Cricket except when India are playing. Passing interest in every other sport. Has a (and Z is worried) great deal of interest in what is happening in the world of WWF. Has a fancy Xbox but will be ditching it for a PS3 soon. And yes, if he hasnt mentioned it to you already, he will be watching Barcelona in action in LA on August 6th. Expect a lot of posts and photos ! ( the lucky b******)

Secretly hoping to meet a hot chick who loves football through this blog.


Prof: What can one say about the Prof? Well, for starters the man fell asleep in the 89th minute of the semifinal match between Barcelona V AC Milan. Pretty much sums up his interest in football. Legendary knowledge of New York Yankee Japanese pitchers. His S&M skills will come in handy in taking this blog places.

He loves his cricket. Loved watching Sampras. Lately ofcourse he has taken to Federer. Also, enjoys watching the LA Lakers and Ferrari. ( Do we see a pattern here?!) The Prof’s intellect is well known. The Prof is THE Best! Yes, he has offered to employ both V and Z after their spectacular failures in the corporate world.


Zarquon (Z): Z is the menial worker who is trying to put together and maintain this site. No knowledge of HTML. But doing his best.

Loves Manchester United (glory hunter!) and to a certain extent West Ham United. Passionate follower of the fortunes of Indians in sports such as Table Tennis, Badminton (Saina is a real prospect!) and Archery. Believes that KPS Gill should be thrown out of the Indian Hockey Federation. Ditto for Suresh Kalmadi and the IOA. Doesnt understand the fuss about F1.

In 2015 he will probably be found eating sundal and watching Chennai Veerans (if they are around) in action at the Mayor Radhakrishnan Stadium.

Last seen he was trying to coax a coworker into visiting his blog.

Other Contributors:

Oasisboy- If Oasisboy had the choice, he would settle down half way between Manchester and Liverpool and spend the rest of his life at Anfield and the City of Manchester Stadium. Obviously, a hot chick and the odd Oasis concert thrown in there somewhere. From time to time, Oasisboy dons the superhero costume and helps Z and Prof when it comes to editing articles and giving his feedback. If he wasn’t so lazy you would see more articles on topics such as Peter Crouch, Stuart Pearce, Steven Gerrard or even on England’s Ashes debacle.

    Yo! Amazing blog ,Time u guys roped in neudo to give u some well needed “gyaan” on the Philips Indian National League(if its still called that). Time somebody wrote aout Mohan Bagan and the likes to cater to us local junta.

  2. Arjun said

    and what is this I hear about somebody ditching an XBOX for a PS3? Was that a Playstation I read? Surely your joking…What happened to somebody who was extremely excited when XBOX anounced a joke with a 360 in it?

  3. Arjun said

    also whats with the New york Yankee Japenese pitcher knowledge?

  4. We definitely need to rope in neudo. Soon. Will not comment about XBOX and PS3.

    As for the Japanese pitcher knoweldge- lets just say that the best Yankee pitcher is a chap named Koizumi πŸ˜‰


  5. Hey, Well the hardware config of the PS3 rocks. and i’m no MS or SOny sympathiser. So the better console gets my approval……. But damn.the Ps3 costs 600$ but that wont stop me πŸ™‚

    And prof shared that koizumi trivia a few days after u had won conundrums….lol….
