Slavia Praha and Priorities

July 9, 2013 by


We are just ten days away from the new Gambrinus Liga season kicking off and I can feel a sense of cautious optimism building around Eden. Pre-season has habit of breeding false confidence – I should know – but Slavia seem to be heading in the right direction after an excellent end to last season. […]

František Straka and the Impossible Job

November 7, 2011 by


Former Sparta Prague player and manager František Straka is doing his utmost to win over the Slavia Prague fans, his side has now won 3 games on the bounce – which was unheard of under former management. Czech champions Viktoria Plzen were their latest victims at Eden; the 2-1 victory could prove pivotal in winning […]

Czech Football and European Hangovers

August 30, 2011 by


Chris Boothroyd delves into the archive and works out if European Football is a burden to Czech sides looking to retain their title. Viktoria Plzeň’s qualification for the UEFA Champion’s League group stages for the first time in their history has undoubtedly been a fantastic achievement for the club.

Slavia Praha 0-3 Jablonec

November 6, 2010 by


Friday night football, live on the local TV stations, floodlit ground, the Slavia ultra’s singing their hearts out.

There was no shape with the […]

So, upon the in-pending football void I need to fill over the coming months I decided to check out […]

Berba and Bony Ruin my Weekend

September 20, 2010 by


It was tough enough sitting through yesterdays match, watching the mancs beat us 3-2. Then today I woke with renewed optimism for Slavia Prague – albeit slightly depressed from Berbabtovs hat-trick. It would be the first league derby I would go and watch between Slavia Prague and Sparta Prague, Sparta fresh from a 3-2 victory against Italians Palermo. Ironically on the same […]

Experience Still Leads The Way

August 1, 2010 by


After watching Slavia Prague labour their way to a 1-0 win over Mlada Boleslav it was clear to see that old head Stanislav Vlcek still has an important role to play. Vlcek  is 34 years old and  is in his second stint at Slavia Prague, his substitute appearance on Saturday swung the game in Slavia’s favour – infact his 30 minute cameo was enough to […]
