Just now I finished seeing the mathc on TV between Mohunbagan and Bayern Muenchen and what a scintillating match. Bayern won 3-0 but you should have seen the enthusiasm of the crowd ..it was more excited and involved than any cricket match..let me tell. you. And the cheers that Oliver Kahn got!!!.. do you know this great German footballer said goodbye to international football tonight from the great Eden Gardens ????
Fantastic ..it was fantastic..Football and footballers are worshipped by us Bengalis and cricket can never come up to it. Ask Ronaldo and the world cup winning Brazilian team to play in Kolkata and call Ponting the Australian cricket team to play at the same time and see for yourself which game draws more crowds and support .
