Summer’s over and so is EURO 2008 for the Czech Republic national team. It was too short to fully enjoy blogging because this blog has been proudly linked from BBC.co.uk and I wanted to post more frequently if my dominant hand hadn’t been wrecked so bad. That’s my only regret. Anyway, I’d like to thank EVERYONE who dropped by my cheesy blog and Daryl, who helped me out on any occasion.
The reasons of the Czechs’ self-elimination can’t be specified enough. No, it’s not the absence of Rosický, but for instance, their tactics changed like Baskin Robbins’ “flavor of the day,” unstable defense that is almost their tradition, dragging out “old” players just for their names, etc. If they needed someone experinced, they should’ve called Patrick Berger who’s always bragging that he’s ready, he’s prepared and blah, blah, blah all the time and test him to see how capable he is. With a 2-year contract with Sparta Prague that is in a better position than 1.FC Nuernberg, he could’ve performed alot better than those 2 players called up for warming the Czech bench.
People may take my post as “sour grape,” however, I’m not saddened at all. Transfer market will soon be open, and how many Czech players will be highly priced is my first interest. Then the qualifiers for the World Cup 2010 kick off in a few months(correct me if I’m wrong, my brain is screwed up as well as my biological clock because of damn tranquilizers). There’s no rest for the Czech Republic and the wicked, namely, me.
Upon Daryl’s approval, I will continue posting Czech Republic football-related topics(not only on the national squad but also on the Gambrinus Liga, the Czech domestic league) here while treating my hand.
Again, thanks a ton for taking your time to read thru my Czech Republic blog. If you’d like to contact me regarding the Czech Republic and Japan national teams and their domestic leagues, here’s my e-mail addy: Pani.Becherovkova[at]gmail.com
See you in Africa 2010, Czech-mates, otherwise, keep “czech”king out my blog! Na shledanou brzy!

Time flies, can’t believe it was 4 years ago when I traveled around Portugal and ended up in Lisbon. Was completely speechless after the stunning semi-final, Greece – Czech Republic. No words to describe what was on my mind came up…didn’t taste anything…Was half-dead…
First of all, I’d like to remind you that ... [read more]
According to Czech Republic FA’s website, one of their defenders Zdeněk Pospěch will be missed from the 1st tournament match against Switzerland due to catching a cold. The team spokesperson Mr. Lukáš Tuček stated that Pospěch’s cold is “normal,” and his fever is lowering now. Nevertheless, to keep checking his condition ... [read more]
If you speak Czech, you should know what “Méd’a” means. My friend’s hubby made a small Czech jersey(away 06-07 w/ the backnumber 11 and says NEDVĚD) and let the tiny stuffed bear wear it as a talisman for the Czech squad and for me. Will be shipped out to me in a ... [read more]

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 ...
Nike's whipped up a nice little promo for the World Cup in Brazil featuring the hosts and it's done without green screen. Swear. Highlights include a Ronaldo cameo, little David Luiz, animated David Luiz, and a Lilliputian Bernard. Neymar's there too, but it kind of just looks like someone filmed ...
Occasionally, you might find yourself dreaming of the moment you're offered a contract by a professional football club. Odds are it's never going to happen, which means you're behind a 20 month old Belgian kid named Bryce Brites. FC Racing Boxberg determined he can kick a ball real well for ...
