The Czech football season is due to kick off again this weekend with current holders Viktoria Plzeň hoping to defend their title against no fewer than FIVE Prague-based teams in this year’s top-flight.
Either I’ve been busy, or lazy, or both, but I was quiet over the summer recess. I even forgot to follow up on Plzeň’s maiden Gambrinus Liga title, Czech Supercup victory, and current battle to reach the the lucrative Champions League group stages. So here’s some cathartic viewing for all you west Bohemians:
|16||Ústí nad Labem||30||19|
Sadly this means we say goodbye for at least one year to Brno (Czech’s second city I should add) and Usti, who, no disrespect (best football cliche), gave it their best shot. In their place return Viktoria Žižkov and Dukla Praha – both very curious additions. More about Dukla soon. In the meanie, I should spend the rest of the week updating my stats and graphs. Can’t wait.
