JAYDIP DASGUPTA REPORT AND COMMENTARY : It is indeed a grand farewell to General Trevor James Morgan.A t Yubabharati Kriangan his Red and Gold soldiers edged passed the arch rivals Mohun Bagan by a convincing margin of 3-2 to bagged the CFL for the 34th time. East Bengal won the CFL third time in a row in Morgan's era.

East Bengal's British Coach Trevor James Morgan is the only overseas coach to create a hatrik in winning the CFL. The agreement with Morgan and East Bengal is up to 2014. But due to some specific reasons Trevor decided to quit from his job and return to his home town at Perth.It can be said that a successful tenure of three years came to an end after 33 months.This British coach took charge of the Red and Gold in the July of 2010.

East Bengal has won Federation Cup twice (2010,2012), Kolkata league (2010, 2011, 2012), IFA Shield and Super Cup. He has been successful in the international scenario, when Red and Gold qualified for the last eight teams of the AFC Cup.

He is unsuccessful in winning the I league.Though the ranking was second in the years 2010 and 2011 and finished third in the recently concluded tournament. Morgan have now won 8 trophies for the Club in a span of three years. So, it may be summarized that Trevor Morgan is the most successful coach in India in the recent times.

East Bengal dominated the match right from the beginning in a 4-5-1 formation.The red and Gold controlled the midfield while Penn Orji was operating as a attacking medio and Dika and Lobo operating through the wing. Mohun Bagan started in a 4-3-3 formation, but lost control of the mid field right from the start.

The ball play of East Bengal yield result at the 23rd minute of the match. Cheddi converted his first goal after receiving a pass from the left of Penn Orji. The ball rebounded of Shilton and Cheddi places in the open net. East Bengal increased the margin at the 27th minute when Penn Orji's shot beat Shilton Pal and the mariners deep defense had no answer to respond. It was Kavin Lobo who initiated the attack from the right and sends a accurate through to Penn who did the rest.

East Bengal could have increased their tally in the first half, but shots from Cheddi and Pen Orji hit the framework.In nanother occasion Penn Orji's shot was saved by Shilton in expense of a corner. Mohun Bagan reduced the margin from a gem of a free kick by Odafa Okirie from 25 yards.The right footed shot of Odafa curled in and beat Abhijit to find the target.It may be said that apart from this goal Odafa failed to create any danger in the East Bengal deep defense.

He was kept under the close eye of Opara and Arnab.The midfield of the mariners hardly can link with the upfront and they are closely and heavily marked by the East Bengal midfield. In the second session East Bengal created more pressure in the mariners deep defense and increased the margin in the 71st minute.Cheddi once again dribbled passed Nirmal Chetri and placed in the far corner of the net.

Tolgey scored in the 92nd minute utilizing the defensive lapse of the East Bengal. Mohun Bagan ended the season without any major trophy. The team combination of Mohun Bagan did not worked in time and the dependence on Odafa failed to yield result in many outings. The strategies of Karim are questioned by many of officials and supporters of Mohun Bagan.

The 2012-13 season came to an end with this Derby. Kolkata bids farewell to a successful British coach who will be remembered for long by the Red and gold supporters who submits his resignation at the end of the match Trevor James Morgan himself said that he will remember this supporters for long. East Bengal will hoist the club flag at 11am tomorrow.
