On Sangram: The Keeper this season!
Sangram, has really come of age! Last season had been a nightmare for him. So much so, he had to be seated and Shilton Pal, the young goalie had to be trusted, who dinot fail to impress though. This year, again, Sangram has shown must confidence in his performance and undoubtedly, he has been Bagan's unsung hero in this season. With a permeable defence ahead of him, he has saved Bagan on a number of occasions in all the matches.

Sad demise of Madhusudhan Dolui
A weak at heart, Madhusudhan Dolui, yet Green and Maroon at heart, passed away during the Kolkata derby yesterday. A Mohun Bagan supporter to the core, Mr. Dolui was present at the Salt Lake Stadium and witnessed his team go down in the 18 minute. Bagan went into the half one goal down, and that to Mr. Dolui's heart seemed to much to bear. At 48, his heart could not take the pain and he was hospitalised as soon as possible by a few good Samaritans, but the doctors could not revive him, he died off heart-attack . He may not have lived to see Mohun Bagan win the match, but he has left us to fill that empty seat and root for our beloved club from the very core. On behalf of the million mariners, we lend a shoulder of condolence to his family and pray that may our friend, brother and fellow mariner rest in eternal peace!
Another unfortunate East Bengal fan suffered from heart attack in the stadium in the later half of the match and is admitted in ICCU and his condition is critical. We pray for his speedy recovery and may he be back with his near and dear ones soon...
