The most media attracted by a Czech footballer today? Easy: That’d be Milan Baros, who is widely expected to play tomorrow night for Portsmouth at Manchester United since his transfer from Olympique Lyon was completed on Monday.
Those of y’all lucky enough to be able to see it (Here in Magyarország, some hyper-expensive cable company owns the rights to the Premiership. This writer can still see it on slightly illegal IPTV, but this grousing is utterly justified, believe me), the game kicks off at 20.00 GMT.
For quickies on this story, check out:
Baros will play because David Nugent and Benjani Mwaruwari are injured.
Harry Redknapp reckons he’s pulled off a “coup.”

Sorry for being a stranger – was just popping around among domestic leagues, international teams, transfer rumors, Champions League final and my personal legal b/s. Anyhow, as opposed to Mr. Brückner’s positive praise towards the Czech squad and the facilities in Bad Kleinkirchheim, personallly, I sense that this might be the worst European Championship experience ever in my life. Reasons ... [read more]

Sorry so late on this one; here’s a good story by František Bouc of the Prague Post on the would-be salary cap about to be twisted onto the ČMFS.
In a move to counter the rising salary demands coming from the league’s players, the Czech Football Association (ČMFS) is considering the introduction of salary caps on the country’s professional ... [read more]
Managed to catch Eurosport’s abbreviated version of Poland v. Czech Republic in Cyprus, for the best, perhaps, given the result.
Roll the highlight clips (such as it was, given the tepid first-half lackadaisicality you’d expect from a game played in lovely Larnaca in February)!

The Munich Philharmonic penned this little aria for their boys heading to England for the grandest match of the year on Saturday. Bounding around Google has surfaced nothing in the way of an English translation for the lyrics, but it's worth it simply to watch someone work 'Heynckes' into a ...
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. The latter was unjustified, though Cristiano probably could've been sent off for kicking Juanfran off the ball earlier, and there's ...

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 ...
Just days after the club granted a young boy with cancer his Make-A-Wish wish a friendly against the senior side, the fans of the Portland came up with a choreograph. Only it's not your typical collective - this one was for gay tolerance, fresh on the heels of the spate ...
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 ...
Leonardo, the PSG director not the Ninja Turtle, isn't exactly having a fine few weeks. After Thiago Silva was sent off for lightly placing his hands on the referee last week, Leonardo decided it would be a smart idea to bump the referee in the tunnel. This may result in ...
