Armchair Scouting: Who Is Ahmed Jahouh?

Let me make something very clear to you lot out there, the signing of Jahouh is a damn coup for FC Goa. His skill set is such that I expect him to dominate the midfield in every game for the Gaurs. He is that bloody good.

There’s this dude called Nisanth who wrote a piece for Goal.com recently titled “Marcelinho Who?…” It’s a well-written article and the theme is unique too but I feel that he missed a beat there. Well, Nisanth buddy, you talked about unknowns making a difference in ISL4. Jahouh will be one of those unknowns that you’re looking for and should’ve included in your article. Continue reading

Armchair Scouting: Who Is Miku Fedor?

When I did a review of foreign players in the Indian Super League, Miku Fedor didn’t feature. That post came out on September 4th and Miku’s signing was only completed at the end of August. There wasn’t enough time for me to update that post. It was too big anyway and I couldn’t really add more to it. I just figured then that I’ll be writing this post in the future and let it go.

For the record, Miku deserved to be a part of that post. More so, than many other players. Why is that? You need to scout the player out for that… oh… right. You’re a smart one. Here’s my report. Continue reading

Armchair Scouting: Who Is Gregory Nelson?

Gregory Nelson is the first unknown (relatively speaking) I’ll be scouting on this blog from my armchair. It is a comfortable armchair. In fact, it is so comfortable that I get super scouting powers from it. That is why the all the great scouts of the world need to see players in real life while I can scout them in my undy fundies.

I assure you I’m a very humble man in my personal life. In this blog, I’m atrociously flagrant. That’s the internet these days though. “I’m flagrant, atrociously flagrant. I have the licence to be ridiculous.” The internet said so.

Back to the subject of one Mr Nelson. He was a great freedom fighter in South Africa. Oops, wrong Nelson. Gregory Nelson is the subject of my attention today. Here’s my (armchair) scout report. Continue reading

Armchair Scouting: Who is Dimitar Berbatov?

I am not happy. Why has my beloved Indian Super League suddenly developed a love affair with Tottenham Hotspurs? Why are the clubs signing so many former Spurs players? The inaugural season of the ISL was wonderful. There were loads of Arsenal players (Pires, Santos) that I could get behind. Now, there are barely any. Instead, Spurs are all over. After ATK (yes, still with that lame-ass Amar, Tomar crap) signed Keane, KBFC went one better with Dimitar Berbatov.

Both are former Spurs players. In fact, they played together in what could be seen as the best career season for Keane. I doubt Keane could’ve done it without Berbatov, though. Despite being an Arsenal fan, for some reason, I never hated Berbatov. It’s probably because of his artistry. If you like the Gunners or have ever liked them (tough to like them these days, I understand), you cannot but like poetry and Berbatov has always played poetically. Continue reading
