We review NEUFC's campaign in the ISL and look at the reason they failed to make the playoffs once again.
THE ISL GRAND FINALE, complete with its magnificent setting in Kochi and the star-studded VIP gallery, was set to be an occasion that eclipsed all other in the 3 year history of the private tournament. In the end, the contest that followed on the pitch was hardly worth writing home about, and the winner had to be decided by penalties.
NorthEast United FC again finished short of the semi-finals. We pick 5 individuals who did well to help the team with decent results or those that affected the team's good showing in the league.
NORTHEAST UNITED did everything right in the lead up to the ISL, but unforeseen circumstances and lack of squad depth caused them to finish just below the playoff qualification mark yet again.
Vingada suggests league to be longer. Coppell says the first half they didn't have a lot of chances but finished the game strongly.
A determined Kerala side that stayed at the bottom of the league table for so long has never looked back after their steady performances
TFG PREDICTS THE last four games in the ISL 2016 regular season; with one place in the playoffs still up for grabs and a straight-up duel for the top of the table on the cards.
NORTHEAST UNITED are coming into this game with a do or die mission. Anything less than a win will end their chances to make the ISL 2016 playoffs. And they are playing the Delhi Dynamos, one of the best teams in the tournament.

The #Highlanders absolutely flayed Durban based side #CherriansFC on an extremely cold, chilly and rainy night at the People's Park stadia yesterday. This was the 4th pre-season game played by #NEUFC. #NicolasVelez scored two to add to his fearsome reputation, while #FrancisDadzie also added to his tally. The prodigal #AlenDeory scored a sublime goal while Boithang Haokip opened his account on this pre-season tour. Mid-field combatant #KondwaniMtonga also guided a header home to add gloss to a comprehensive rout on the night. What a utterly irrepressible performance! #NEUFC #PowerOf8 #8States1United #Preseason #Durban
Q&A with Cédric Hengbart
Soft-spoken, witty, calm, tenacious, friendly and committed : Just some of the qualities that #NEUFC's #CédricHengbart possesses. Undoubtedly, one of the best defenders in the first season of the ISL- Indian Super League, Hengbart comes with proven pedigree having played in the Ligue 1 and the UEFA Champions League.The former Kerala Blasters captain took time off to speak to #NEUTV about his targets for this season, his thoughts on the Indian boys in the team and his take on the Head Coach and Marquee Player, Simão Sabrosa.#PowerOf8 #8States1United #HeroISL #QandA #HighlandersPosted by NorthEast United FC on Thursday, September 10, 2015
