All aboard the Slavia Express… Chooo Chooo.

August 31, 2012 by


It’s a rare occasion when I am confident of Slavia Praha getting a result. But this weekend is different, for a multitude of reasons. Slavia hit Brno for FIVE last week, yes, FIVE GOALS! We should have seen it coming, given it was the start of five consecutive days of Gambrinus Liga and it was […]

FIVE days of the Gambrinus Liga
