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.”
Simply put, “Baros happy to be back” in the Premiership. (This one ran everywhere.)
Meanwhile, Olympique Lyon remains atop the table…

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]

At last night’s press conference(note:in the Czech language), Arsenal FC midfielder Tomáš Rosický officially announced his declinature from the Czech Republic national team for European Championship 2008.
The main cause of his declination is his long-lasting hamstring problem which started torturing him since the FA Cup match Arsenal FC – Newcastle United back in ... [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)!
6th minute. A full-capacity crowd of an estimated 600 thrills to see Wojciech Lobodzinski catching the Czech defenders ... [read more]

Découvrez le « Menu Paris Saint-Germain » avec notre Fournisseur Officiel McDonald’s IDF http://t.co/SnrQMD5Pre pic.twitter.com/M6kyopSUrL— PSG Officiel (@PSG_inside) December 5, 2013 Most of the jokes centering upon McDonald's sneaking into the football arena involve American-owned clubs or those employing Adriano or other once-iconic now-tubby superstars. But it's PSG who would like ...
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. 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 ...
