I am myself a football noob :giggle:, Started watching because my friends watched World cup and i used to get bored in thier talks. After that came iSL and i started some what taking interest in this. Maybe some experts can tell you better. As far as me, some one has to start. the current I league is doing nothing and only football enthusiasts watch it. ISL has reached a bigger audience with the involvement of star owners.

David Platt @DavidPlatt Up bright & early and really excited to finally get back on the training pitch for @FCPuneCity pre season training camp @Gloria_Sports Arena in Belek, Turkey. After retaining 6 domestic players from last season and adding another signed from Chennayi, we then secured at auction the best player and the best midfielder as voted for the domestic league season, followed by many of our 1st choice selections from the player draft. With 15 domestic players secured we had to add 11 foreign players to make up the final squad. Steve Simonsen, Nicky Shorey, James Bailey, Roger Johnson from England, Yendrick Ruiz from Costa Rica will join Didier Zokora, Tuncay Sanli & Adrian Mutu all of whom will not only help the team but also help educate and improve football in India. Working hard to find 3 more that can compliment the above. Great day on the training pitch with @FCPuneCity. Had heard so much about the so called limitations of the domestic players but none of that was in evidence today. Exceptional work ethic, thirst to improve & learn, technically more than capable, very very pleasantly surprised. Nice for me to get my boots on again and enjoy coaching. Today was a football session, tomorrow am it's about the physical side of the game, then tactical work in the afternoon. Couldn't be more delighted with the squad we've got so far, international players all eager to impart their knowledge, plenty of work to do before we unveil to the Orange Army of FC Pune City Physical morning for all the players of @FCPuneCity at the best sports facility I have ever seen or been privileged to work at in my whole career - Gloria Sports Arena @Gloria_Sports After 2 days of double sessions today the players of FC Pune City have worked this morning only. I'm delighted with the attitude of all the players in their appetite to work hard. This morning, after the warm up, Renedy Singh directed his first session as my assistant and did exceptionally well. He split the players into 3 teams of 7 for a mini tournament of games. The eventual winning team, after sudden death penalties was the non bibs captained by Jackichand Singh. Our work in this first block of 3 days has been on the defensive side of the game. They have all earned their afternoon off to rest before we get back to work tomorrow looking at the offensive side.

David Platt @DavidPlatt Yesterday we only had 1 session and then the players were free. Most went to the beach here in Belek and had a wonderful time. In the evening, as a whole squad we were hosted by @GloriaHotels at their flagship Serenity Hotel which further helped the domestic/international player bonding which is really pleasing to see. As a coach I am always concerned about the next training session after some free time but, after this mornings gym session with Matt Radcliffe & Niall Clarke, the boys worked very hard in some possession based drills with the focus on playing forward and with a tempo to give the opposition problems. It went so well that I had to curtail one of the drills I wanted to as I ran out of time with the sun going down! Tomorrow we will start 30 minutes earlier than normal for two reasons, 1. We have to bid farewell to Jackichand Singh, Eugene Lyngdoh and Arindam Bhattacharya who are meeting up with the National Team, and 2. The morning session is a hard physical one and I think we will gain from the fact that it will be cooler at that time. Still working hard too behind the scenes to finalise our quota of International Players.

David Platt @DavidPlatt We started the day off with a presentation. I've decided that as our hosts in your country the foreign contingent should vote for their domestic player of the week for the duration of our time at FC Pune City. A vote can be for pitch performance, off field or for whatever reason we wish. The winner by a margin was Lenny Rodrigues. Niall Clarke presented him with his 100gram solid silver bar just before the Internationals left for their flight home to India. Congratulations Lenny. The players then had a very physical morning but their attitude to it was very good, and I am writing now after we have just finished our evening session which was productive from a tactical perspective. I'm learning more and more each day about the characteristics of the Indian players and also the foreign contingent and formulating our tactical principles based on that learning. I couldn't be happier with anything at the moment, we are in front of where I expected us to be at this point. Just the one session tomorrow, with Jacki and Eugene leaving for the International camp Renedy Singh is going to have to put his boots on to make up the numbers for our session! He's more than an able replacement and along with Devan Daniel is helping me enormously on the training pitch. It's really motivating for me to help both of them in their understanding of coaching. I may have some news on tomorrow's post about a new signing, 'speak' soon.

FC Pune City strengthened their defensive line by signing 34-year old Argentine defender Diego Colotto! The centreback spent the last 3 seasons playing for La Liga club RCD Espanyol, where he’d earned a leadership role in the dressing room and was looked at as an example for the younger players. He played 24 games last season in the La Liga, of which he started 23. FC Pune City fought off stiff competition from Spanish clubs Córdoba CF, RCD Mallorca, Real Zaragoza and some Mexican clubs to sign him.
