Łukasz Piszczek is the most prominent player so far accused in the match fixing scandal in the Ekstraklasa. He was a part of the Zagłębie team that agreed a draw with Cracovia at the end of the 2005/06 season. Though Piszczek was not one of the organizers of the transaction, he’s now the Polish player who’s most associated with the corruption. Now he considers resignation from representing Poland and playing in Euro 2012. This is the problem with no easy solution; Franz Smuda has so far refrained to make a clear comment.

Michał Żewłakow spilled the beans. Then Robert Lewandowski mentioned the lack of proper tactics. Now Polonia Warsaw and national team players, Mierzejewski, Jodłowiec and Sobiech, openly reject the idea of including Manuel Arboleda in our Euro team.

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 ...

The Moldovan first division. An eighteen year-old kid named Radu Mitu making his professional debut. This happens. It's like watching a three-legged dog fall to the back of the pack as it tries to run a race. The wind took it. Just...the wind took it. Hopefully Radu has a great sense of ...
