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]

Comedy Football 2013 (TVGOLO.com) by GOTW The playlist is a little rough, especially the constant switches after a whole four seconds, but here's nearly a half hour of football folly goodness to see out 2013 from the folks at TVGolo. It's the new age bloopers VHS. Everyone loves bloopers tapes. ...
It might well be the goal of 2013, and in the final days at that. FIFA decided to cash in early on their goal of the year, but perhaps they should reopen voting. This Spanish futsal number from Matamoros is steeped in technique and skill. Plus you get the patented ...
All was fine and well between Branislav Ivanovic and Luis Suarez in the prematch handshake; their first since the Uruguayan began nibbling on Ivanovic during the spring. So that was nice. Bygones, etc. But then during the match, Ivanovic went about doing his job and accidentally kicked Luis in the ...
Every club should do one of the little videos, though for many, it would be significantly more humble and the graphics would be scribbled on scrap paper littered about the club offices. Barcelona's numbers look infinitely more impressive than anyone else's, though the number of beverages sold seems a bit ...
This little girl is a Benfica fan. Under the Christmas tree, her family placed a cruel, cruel joke in the form of a Porto shirt. Her reaction is priceless and leads to the idea that she'll be an excellent disciplinarian as a mother. Thankfully, her family was just playing a ...
If you happened upon Andres Iniesta in a store and didn't know who he was, would you think of him to be one of the world's finest athletes, even for a second? Probably not. In fact of all footballers, he seems closest to the picture of an average man. Sony ...
Lists compiling the top players of the world are typically best left ignored. Not necessarily on the whole, if often, but because there's that one guy in that one slot who just..."Oh my god. Don't even get me started." One of the better lists came in the form of last ...
Suppose it's never too early for some trash talk, though six months ahead of time is quite preemptive. Cristal, a beer of Chile, has sent a frightening message to the Netherlands ahead of their match in the Group of Death in Brazil. Nude girl in a beer commercial quota hit, ...
