Mohun Bagan celebrate 28th League title!

Mohun Bagan today reached on 30 points after defeating Raghu Nandi's George Telegraph in the Kolkata Football League. Though Mohd. Sporting are on 24 points from 12 matches with still 2 matches to go, yet they are 6 goals behind Bagan's goal difference of 13+. Bagan still have one match, that is the derby, though it may be an inconsequential match as East Bengal are on 24 points with only one match to go. They can not reach to 30 points.
Barreto ensured that Bagan fans went home with a smile on their face as he scored the only goal of the match in the 30th minute. The keeper came out of the line to smuggle the ball off Barreto's feet but Barreto pushed the ball past the keeper. The first half saw Bagan much in control of the match, but after the second half, Bagan's dominance went missing as the midfield failed to take the game to the other side. Jr. James did well in the midfield playing the role of a snatcher but as always lacked the finishing.
Karim introduced Ishfaq Ahmed in place of Jr. James so as to gain some control and with the hope creating few chances. But poor refereeing decision ruined the match. Ishfaq was pulled down from behind inside the penalty box, but the referee ruled a foul against Ishfaq. A series of wrong decisions followed as the referee kept awarding George players free-kicks whereas the decision should have gone in Bagan's favour. This followed a few protests from the Bagan side and with the referee ineffective, the George players started heckling Ishfaq, Barreto and Lalampuia. Ishfaq protested only to receive a yellow and then a red card. Today Barreto was relentless with running up and down the field and working tremendously.

md sp can easily overhaul 6 goal deficit by winning two matches against small team . and if we lose to eastbengal, our goal difference will be +4 or +5 or worse depending upon the margin. so who will be champion then?

please wait till the last whistle is blown? premature celebration is the cause of downfall often
