Atk again lost the match. This time at
their home ground at YBK on
Thursday. Opponent was Roberto Carols
Delhi Dynamos. Football often surprises and this is the nature of this game and
create excitements. But goal against atk
in 90th minute kolkata fans were not
expecting this surprise. Legendary Roberto
Carlos
played more than half an hour but kolkatans were heavy in heart by 3rd consecutive loss Atletico de Kolkata is in crisis with
7th position in current league table. I
think absence of positive goal scorer is the key reason behind this crisis.
Injuries of the marquee footballer,
Helder Postiga
and Izumi Arata
are paying a lot behind this catastrophe. There is no one at the opponent
penalty box to convert the crosses of Sameer
Doutie
. In a league of 8 teams like ISL
if a vital player is unavailable for 5 to 6 matches then the team is surely
going to suffer. Same is the situation here in Atk. Coach Antonio Habas is still trying hard to get replacement
of Postiga. Lone striker, Ian Hume was coming down on midfield to
build attack. As a result he couldn’t reach the attacking third to attend the
crosses. Obviously opponent by claiming the numerical supremacy at their
defensive third is ready to tame Atk.
Midfielders are also countable when striker is nullified. In that case, when
strikers are failure, the morale of the team will be totally lost. Losing at
the home ground is another matter of scary. 
Atk couldn’t fetch the advantage of
getting 10-men Delhi. Instead of
scoring conceded. Being a positive striker and having fresh legs, Sushil Sing didn’t create pressure on Delhi defense. The enthusiastic
performance of Arnab Mondal and Rino Anto went in vain after conceding
by Dos Santos at the dying moment.
Once again Santos proved his utility
earning 3 points for Delhi. At the same time excellent performance of Florence Maluda created a big
difference.
