Mandya: Fans have big expectations from their teams before every Indian Premier League (IPL) season kicks-off. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is one such team with a big fan base and for a decade now, fans haven’t caught a glimpse of the team lifting the trophy despite Virat Kohli and co reaching three finals.
But the current season provided a lot of optimism and RCB fans were confident about their chances in the current campaign. So much, they created a slogan in Kannada named ‘E Saala Cup Namde’ which translates to ‘This year the Cup is ours’.
The tagline soon started trending across social media platforms and a restaurant Harsha Cafe in Karnataka also started using it on their bills to keep their business rolling in association with their support for the IPL franchise.
However, as RCB currently find themselves struggling in the IPL table, languishing at the seventh position with five losses, fans have given up hopes about qualifying for the playoffs and now even, Harsha Café.
After the team's terrible run, the restaurant situated on VV Road Mandya has changed the tagline on the bill from ‘E Saala Cup Namde’ to ‘Next Saala Cup Namde’ which reads ‘The Cup will be ours next year’.
One particular visitor, who visited the Cafe took to Twitter and showed the change of taglines from the start of the tournament till now.
RCB are set to take on Mumbai Indians in their next encounter on Tuesday at the Chinnaswamy Stadium and will look to keep their play-offs hopes alive....
