AHEAD OF THE THIRD EDITION of Indian Super League (ISL), NorthEast United FC have announced the signings of five new players – Rowlin Borges, Subrata Paul, Sumeet Passi, Nirmal Chettri, Shouvik Ghosh.
THE DOMESTIC SEASON IS not fully over but most I-League clubs have already gone out of action after losing out in the battle for the Federation Cup. And almost immediately the Indian Super League franchises have sprung into action, signing up players left and right from these clubs for the third edition of ISL starting October.
NORTHEAST UNITED HAVE turned to an experienced coach with proven track record in Asian football for the third edition of the Indian Super League.
WE LOOK AT some of the Indian players who did not live up to the expectations in the ISL 2015, for various reasons. In this part, only players from the bottom four franchises are included.
WE TAKE A LOOK at the marquee players of franchises who did not make it to the ISL 2015 semi-finals, and explore whether their team's place in the points table was in any way affected by these players' good or bad performance.
WE TAKE A LOOK at some of the players who stood out with their good or bad performances in the last round of the ISL 2015 regular season.
HIGH STAKES GAMES have big time consequences. Round 13 saw many teams seal their place in the semi-finals and many others bow out of the race to playoffs. And many individual players carried out big roles in determining that. We take a look at performances that either brought their fans vindication or heartbreak.
AS THE ISL REGULAR SEASON enters its very last round, we at TFG take a look at the last remaining four matches and try to predict who will end their campaign with a bang, who will fizzle out and who will extend their season with a place in the coveted playoffs.
A CLIMACTIC CONTEST brought NorthEast United's regular season to an end as they registered a competitive, dominant and at times nervous 3-2 victory over Pune City. This result has knocked the Stallions out of the race to the semi-finals, but the Highlanders' own top four hopes are depending on their vanquished opponents' victory in their last match of the campaign.
NORTHEAST UNITED came out swinging against Pune City at home in a game that is must-win for both teams to keep their semi-final hopes alive. At lemon break the Highlanders are leading 3-1 after dominating the Stallions throughout the first half, on the verge of breaking their opponents' top four dreams to pieces.

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
