Monday Morning Center Back

It’s late Monday morning, but still Monday morning… Saturday Wisła Kraków 1 (Jankowski 42′) – Jagiellonia Białystok 2 (Tuszynski 87′, Pawlowski 90′) Two last minute goals gave Jaga a temporary spot in second place, but wins by Legia and Lech…

Ekstraklasa in Europe

Today is the first day for Ekstraklasa with TS Podbeskidzie and Pogoń Szczecin already underway as I write this and newly promoted Górnik Łęczna hosting Wisła Kraków later. It’s also worth remembering that this week also debuted four Polish clubs…

That’s a Red, Right?

Yesterday’s match between Wisła Kraków and Polonia Warszawa ended in a 3 – 1 win for the Black Shirts, but it wasn’t without controversy. Polonia was already up by 2 – 1 in the 70th minute when Łukasz Teodorczyk passed…

Zachodny Speaks

I watched the highlights from the Ekstraklasa this weekend and saw the empty stadia (even Wisła Kraków was crowned league champion at one of two grounds closed to fans), a precaution taken because of fan violence at the Polish Cup.…

Śląsk Wrocław 2 – Wisła Kraków 0

I bother with yesterday’s Ekstraklasa matchup for three reasons: 1 – The combat conditions that pre-game reporters operate under. 2 – The post match celebration of Śląsk manager Orest Lenczyk. 3 – The fact that Wisła’s lack of points means…

Jaga 2 – Górnik Zabrze 0

Wow, three in a row. What’s Polish for mojo? What’s even better, one of the goals was a header from Tomasz Frankowski. Are my Jaga boys back? Enough to catch up with Wisła Kraków? We’ll see.

Poland Notes

– I talked to Prairie Rose Clayton yesterday, and she asked me if any of my teams won this weekend. She’s a Revs and Breakers fan, so her answer was no. My answer is one: Jaga beat Zagłębie Lubin, which…

The Hand of God?

I was going to post some highlights from the best barnburning Ekstraklasa game this weekend: league leading Wisła Kraków against a spirited Korona Kielce. The game had plenty of goals, nice saves and more than a few of the outrages…

Jaga 1 – Arka 0

I watched Chivas absolutely demolish a somnambulant Club América squad this afternoon. It made me wonder, is anyone I like gonna win this weekend? Well, it turns out Jagiellonia did. It was against sure-to-be-relegated Arka Gdynia, but a win is…

A Bad Weekend for Strikers?

Here’s Maicon Santos whiffing a perfect goal scoring opportunity against Chivas USA this weekend: This seemed to be a common affliction this weekend. Samuel Vanegas of CD Independiente Medellín had much the same problem in a weekend match against their…

And I Miss EVERYTHING

During the Ekstraklasa break this summer, I got out out the habit of checking PolishSoca and the other sources of news about my Jaga boys. So, I find out last week that Jaga made the Europa League. I’m not sure…
