Another Slavia Horror Show

August 6, 2013 by


The inquest has begun. A 3-2 home defeat against Olomouc left Slavia Praha in the bottom two with just one point out of a possible nine. A desperate start. Confidence, among the fans at least, was high before kick-off as everyone was expecting Slavia to get their first win of the season but the reality […]

Gambrinus Liga: Week Three Tips

August 2, 2013 by


Week Two Review The beating that Bohemka took from Plzen two weeks was always a difficult one to measure. There is no shame getting spanked by Plzen, especially if you are a newly promoted side, but the 5-1 beating dished out by Brno illustrates what a tough task Bohemka have to stay in the division. […]

Slavia luckless in front of goal

July 20, 2013 by


Slavia Praha kicked off their season with a frustrating 1-1 home draw against Banik Ostrava. Missed chances and defensive mistakes cost Slavia two points here, however, there were signs of encouragement with the amount of chances created in a second half rally.  Over 7500 fans were dotted around Eden and the combination of the sweltering […]

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 […]

Olomouc to pile on more misery for Slovacko

August 4, 2012 by


  Backing teams with confidence at this early stage in the Gambrinus Liga is very difficult. Last weekend Brno shocked Slovacko with a 1-0 win and Slavia Praha’s 3-3 draw with newly promoted Jihlava illustrates this point perfectly. Although we are just a week into the season we can draw some conclusions from the previous […]

Franz Straka, Slavia Praha and the inevitable conclusion.

March 2, 2012 by


František Straka and Slavia Praha was never going to be a match made in heaven, but it’s hard not to feel some kind of sympathy for the beleaguered 53 year-old manager.  Slavia Praha’s troubles are well documented; the finances are limited, much like the current crop of players. Trying to resurrect this famous club will […]

Slavia Praha 2011/12 – Title Winners?

June 28, 2011 by


Probably not. But the new season will represent a chance for Slavia to put right some wrongs from last season. It appears the club is on more stable footing than last year. ENIC have been paid a zillion krowns, or whatever they were owed and the joint owner Aleš Řebíček is looking forward to the […]

Table for Two?

April 22, 2011 by


Slavia Praha number 3 Bassirou Dembele has taken a second job handing out leaflets for restaurants in Wenceslas Square, such is the need for money to send back home to his family in Mali. News broke this week about 21 year-old Dembele’s troubles. I’m sure most people have thought about taking a second job to […]

Slavia and New Beginnings

July 17, 2010 by


Yesterday I went to watch Slavia’s first game of the season against local rivals Bohemians Prague 1905. The match had started with some promise as Bohemians scored a well worked goal in the first minute and Slavia soon responded 15 minutes with a tidy goal themselves. We might as well have gone home there and then, the quality […]
