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]

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]

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, ...
