  1. I think whatever East Bengal and Mohun Bagan related damage control statements that ATK
    management is now making , it has come a bit too late. Over the last 3 seasons ATK was the
    most popular club of ISL but most folks from out of Bengal were not aware that 80 percent of
    the supporters of ATK are hardcore supporters of East Bengal and Mohun Bagan. Nearly all of
    these hardcore supporters of East Bengal and Mohun Bagan now terribly hate ATK. ATK had
    created all kinds of obstacles for EB and MB in the recent times.ATK wanted to keep EB & MB
    out of ISL and out of Kolkata and wanted to dry the pockets of the fans of EB & MB. This
    strategy misfired and now the matches of ATK would be held along with the I-league matches of
    EB and MB. Now the whole of India would get to know the true fan base of ATK , or rather the
    zero fan base of ATK.

    It would be now challenging for ATK to retain their existing co-sponsors because their co-
    sponsors would be sponsoring a club which is now hated like evil by the huge majority of Bengal.

    Lastly , a day after calling ATK as ” Amar Tomar Kolkata” , ATK owners decided not to pick from the Draft any
    high performing bengali players. Probably after reviewing the multiple fan forums of East Bengal and Mohun Bagan , ATK management has realized that its now too late to calm down the huge majority of Bengal who have now nothing but sheer hatred for ATK.
