#1 Life without Sanjoy Sen
After failing to win a single match in four consecutive attempts and losing the first home match in his reign, Sen decided to resign from the managerial post which allowed the assistant manager, Shankarlal Chakraborty to take the post for the rest of the season.
The new manager carried on much in the same vein as his predecessor, with Mohun Bagan banking on long balls and counter-attacks. Even, their second goal came via a long ball which Dicka received before rounding the goalkeeper and slotted it calmly into the back of the net.
