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]

Découvrez le « Menu Paris Saint-Germain » avec notre Fournisseur Officiel McDonald’s IDF http://t.co/SnrQMD5Pre pic.twitter.com/M6kyopSUrL— PSG Officiel (@PSG_inside) December 5, 2013 Most of the jokes centering upon McDonald's sneaking into the football arena involve American-owned clubs or those employing Adriano or other once-iconic now-tubby superstars. But it's PSG who would like ...
The video is well over a month old, but the world can be forgiven for overlooking the Finnish third division, right? Right. Thankfully, the video also provides running commentary as well as a wonderfully obstructed viewpoint from the stands. And if you pay attention, you'll notice that it's not quite the ...
If this happened in America, this child would rebel by becoming an Ajax fan and they'd film an entire reality show based whlly upon the family dysfunction as a result. As it stands, however, this kid could very well grow up to become this kid. Let's hope there's a ...
Tis the season, which means plenty of footballers getting into the spirit on YouTube - and of all clubs, it always seems as though Manchester City is at the forefront of the holidays. Maybe because they can afford the most gifts? Who knows. John Guidetti is definitely...embracing the spirit. That's being ...
A rehearsal was held for the 2014 World Cup draw taking part on Friday in Bahia, which meant a simulated draw was whipped out of the bowls or hats or whatever the hell they'll use. Judging by that draft draw, there are a lot of federations which won't be sleeping ...
The spate of solid World Cup commercials has begun. Next up is Paolo Rossi's spot for VISA, taking him back to Brazil to remind them of the terror he unleashed in 1982 with a hat trick in Spain. Presumably the next one is a very resigned Roberto Baggio taking heat ...
Adidas launched the official ball for the 2014 World Cup, called the brazuca. Which sounds vaguely like something Kramer and Frank Costanza would've whipped up. They had models and dubstep but not a soul who thought to change the name to something which sounds less like a brassiere for the ...
There has to be someone out there knowing the market for this. Given that it's the global game and not everyone has a global understanding of languages, hacked pronunciations are the norm. Someone should take a cue from Cesar Azpilicueta and get all footballers to pronounce their own names on ...
