What actually went wrong?

Well, there is a vast different between the knockout tournament and a league. Three star club didn't take a note to change or review the available squad. Rather, it was more focused to retain the available talent than to introduce some young fresh blood in the team.

Moreover, defense line-up of three star club was very much poor during this season. Most reliable defender Ananta Tamang was not available due to two way contract issue. So, three star has to depend on one and only center back i.e. foreign recruit Peter Segun, which cost the most. Team playing XI was good but the substitute bench was not so strong. New veteran transfer striker Anil Gurung was not effective in the front line. And due to the injury main striker Ajayi Martins Kayode could not display his game in the important league matches. Striker Ranjan Bista managed to score 5 goal while the defender Ranjit Dhimal scored 7 goals for three star but could not help the team to reach the target. Regular captain, Bikram Lama's back on field was delighted news among the stars fans but he played as a defense rather than his regular position of central midfield, this decision of coach Megh raj Kc seems to be costly.

Similarly, Sunil Bal, emerging young talent for national side, also could not perform as expected in the midfield. Goalkeeper Alan Neupane, Nirajan Khadka, Bijay Dhimal, Buddha Raj Chemjong performance was not so satisfactory in the league.

 All in all, poor defensive line up, blunt striking line etc. cost the most for three star club in the league.

In a good note, young players Mikchen Tamang and Sushil Rai, Defender Ashok Khawas, Jivan Gurung and Striker Susan Shrestha got chance to play in some of the league matches but were not so effective for Star.
