Patryk Małecki has just overtaken Sławomir Peszko on my list of the most irritating Polish footballers. He was always high on this list, but thanks to the game against Skonto Ryga he finally managed to get past Peszko (maybe it’s because I don’t have a chance to watch the latter as often as I used to). Overall it was a better than an average performance by Wisła team, but Małecki’s poor form and lack of character improvement is very alarming.

Though the transfer window officially started on the first of July, I didn’t imagine that even our national team would acquire new players. Eugen Polanski, the former captain of the German youth team, decided to ’switch sides’ and make himself available for Poland. Much to Franz Smuda’s appreciation as our coach never ... [read more]
Polonia Warsaw’s owner Józef Wojciechowski makes sure that the Polish football is interesting. After multiple transfers and announcements that he’s going to fight for the championship title next season, he decided to sell his top player Adrian Mierzejewski to Trabzonspor. JW probably wouldn’t do that if it wasn’t for the record transfer ... [read more]
A year before the Euros is a good time to analyze the current state of the Polish national team. I’ve already written a lot about tactics in the last post, so now I’d like to concentrate on the squad roster. Some time ago Smuda said that by this time he would have ... [read more]
0:1 against France is always better than 0:6 against Spain. We’ve made progress during the last year, but in all honesty we started from a really low level. The players gave their all and played to the best of their abilities. The ‘problem’ is that the French players took the game seriously ... [read more]
Normally, the game against Argentina would govern my imagination for a long time. But it would have be a game against a real Argentinian team with Messi, Tevez, Aguero and Mascherano. The match in Warsaw that you watched on Sunday (and that I watched a replay of yesterday) was a one against ... [read more]

Love Football, Hate Football is a site dedicated to taking a currrent club crest and turning out a concept crest in its place. And the site is simply phenomenal. Not only are the designs solid and varied - you won't be a fan of every single one (the transformation of ...
If there's a 007 for a football coach, it's ceertainly not Jurgen Klopp. He's too goofy and, well, he's not a pretty boy. As far as dress sense goes, perhaps Andre Villas-Boas. The problem is football coaches are often too animated to be the supercool James Bond. Jupp Heynckes could ...
You knew it was happening: there's an animal involved in the Champions League Final. After Paul the 'Pus caused a mild ruckus in Germany in particular, it should come as no surprise that Wembley's civil war will feature another majestic creature. Next up for its 15 minutes is Nelly the ...
While the big news of the day is that Chelsea is free to go after a fifty year old child manager of the utmost ability, it's backup keeper Ross Turnbull's son Josh who is stealing the show. After the final match there were some festivities on the pitch. Josh didn't ...
The Munich Philharmonic penned this little aria for their boys heading to England for the grandest match of the year on Saturday. Bounding around Google has surfaced nothing in the way of an English translation for the lyrics, but it's worth it simply to watch someone work 'Heynckes' into a ...
During this evening's Copa del Rey final, won by Atletico Madrid in extra time at the Bernabeu (big win, that one), Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo were both sent off. The latter was unjustified, though Cristiano probably could've been sent off for kicking Juanfran off the ball earlier, and there's ...
This might be better than the Champions League final itself. Heineken decided to run a gag where if a guy could get his girl to go along with buying stadium seats for $1899, he would win tickets to the final in London. One man actually rose above the odds - ...
The people who whip up these fancy second-tier finals (UEFA. They're called UEFA.) concocted a nice little PR thingamajig by pairing one fan from Benfica and one fan from Chelsea with a top notch freestyler in a race through Amsterdam to the Arena. They would hope to determine a winner ...
