About

This blog is about illuminating an arcane world of small crowds, inconvenient kick-off times, and oleaginous half-time snacks, all without having to navigate a single word of the devious Czech language.

When I first developed a taste for Czech football, I could not find any English language resource to help me to distinguish Viktoria Žižkov from Zbrojovka Brno, so here I am doing it myself. In between I’ll provide some musings on anything that captures my imagination regarding the game in the ČR. This is not a results service however, so if it’s a news daily digest you’re looking for there’s no better than Czech Football Daily.

Hezký, before you ask, is a word I picked up from the weathered old-timers that bellow from the tribune when they see something agreeable on the pitch. It means ‘nice’ or ‘pretty’. So there’s some Czech learnt and a promise broken already.

  2. Good stuff! Nice for all foreigners that try to keep up with the Czech Football.

  3. I reckon it translates as “Well played, my son” or maybe just “Sweet”.
