June 20, 2013 by


The Gambrinus foam has barely been wiped from Pavel Horvath’s mouth and yet I am pining for the new season to kick off. And without a major tournament vying for our attention this summer, although the Confederations Cup has been excellent so far, we have to feed off the transfer window for footballing nourishment. Thankfully […]

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 […]

Olomouc to pile on more misery for Slovacko

August 4, 2012 by
