October 30, 2010 by


There is no football for 3 months! Yes, 3 whole months with no football in the Czech Republic. It’s going to be a very long winter here, the final league game before the winter break is November 21. So, upon the in-pending football void I need to fill over the coming months I decided to check out […]

Wengers Statement of Intent

October 28, 2010 by


Its been a good week for Arsenal, 2 victories inside of 4 days with 7 goals scored none conceded. The victory on Sunday was massive for Arsenal, no doubting that Boyata’a wreckless challenge and red card after 5 minutes put Arsenal in the control of the game, they could even afford the luxury of a rare missed penalty […]

October 11, 2010 by


  Following Craig Levein’s recent comments about his much talked about 4-6-0 formation I decided to look a bit further into his reasoning and post game comments. I suppose in some way I should consider myself privileged as I witnessed first hand Craig Levein’s ground breaking formation, 4-6-0. Yes, 4-6-0, the equivalent of having a gun with no […]

Theres only one Pavel Srnicek

October 10, 2010 by


Friday night internationals have taken over from the usual saturday games, im still not sure if im favour of playing internationals on a Friday evening. I think Scotland could have played until Saturday and still not scored a goal, their performance was so poor they made the Czechs look like world beaters. I arrived at the game an […]

Sven has signed a two year deal at Leicester and the ambition is get them into the Premier League, although his priority should be […]
