Mohun Bagan fans continue to remain upset in this season. Bagan fans were upset not because of Debashish Dutta, a journalist of a vernacular newspaper unnecessarily maligning the club and its supporter while reporting a cricket match. Many Bagan supporters have serious doubts over the credentials of the journalist and they tend to ignore him. But fans and supporters of Bagan feel sorry for the performance of the team in this season. Bagan failed to win 4 tournaments the team participated and in all four occasions the team remained “Runners Up” – reminding of 2004!
Bagan played well in the first half – created lots of opportunities – but failed to score more than one goal. Chidi scored the one in 36th minute.
In the second half Churchill kept pressure on Bagan defense – and Bagan failed to maintain the advantage and conceded 2 goals – first in 49th minute (Odafa) and then in 69th minute (Charan Rai).
Odafa’s goal was from an offside – but nevertheless the referee ignored it and Bagan was deprived of a chance to win the first trophy of the season.
