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!

During this evening's Copa del Rey final, won by Atletico Madrid in extra time at the Bernabeu (big win, that one), Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo were both sent off.
