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 free kick is decidedly Pirlo, Juninho-esque, but the name is not one you're likely to know. Tomasz Brzyski is a 31 year old leftback for Legia Warsaw with possibly one of the most underrated left foots in the game. His goal from the Europa League on Thursday isn't a ...
From nothing to UNICEF to logos on the front, back and inside in a jiffy. Barcelona is running the route from minimalist to Formula 1 wannabe in record time.

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.
