You thought the report was going to be the only bit of rambling from me that you had to endure today, didn’t you? Think again! It’s time for the latest from the newsdesk. Don’t get your hopes up, there’s not a lot to go at. It’s that dry, I even debated going using some of the stories on Goal and going over them, but I couldn’t do that to you.
Islanders Tie Down A Trio
To be fair, I could probably just make some of my own up and they would be as good as anyway. That might seem harsh, but guess what? I don’t care! Let’s crack on with the news that has been confirmed in one way or another.
We’ll begin with the Islanders of Mumbai and a wee bit of contract news. I say a wee bit, it’s more than everyone else has done put together; not one, not two, but three new contracts have been signed by players within Mumbai’s ranks.
Davinder, Pranjal Bhumij and Kunal Sawant have all committed their futures to Alexandre Guimaraes’ side which is all well and good, however, what we really want to know is about the likes of Santos #1 & Santos #2!
One other bit of contract news and then that’s your lot for today. Luckily, it’s a big one. I’m talking BLUE WHALE big. Well, that might be a slight exaggeration, but what you gonna do? After Paartalu opted to stay with Bengaluru for another season, there was always a question mark over his partner in crime, so to speak.
Step forward, Dimas Delgado. The Spaniard put pen to paper on a new deal which means that Bengaluru will have a strong core once more next season. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen if Miku will stick around, if not, which way will they go? Who knows!
No more news to report, luckily, I’m not done just yet. While the Super Cup pathway may be set in stone, I won’t ruin the surprise and give the semi-finals away, this is the draw for the last eight though…
Aizawl vs East Bengal/Mumbai City | Jamshedpur vs FC Goa | Mohun Bagan vs Pune/Shillong Lajong | Bengaluru vs Neroca/Kerala Blasters
So, whatever happens, there will be at least one ISL representative in the last four. I’ve got a feeling East Bengal will beat Mumbai as well which will ensure an I-League representative also. I’m not changing my mind, Bengaluru will win it. Fact.
I promise that’s your lot from me today, see you on the other side.
Until the next time.
