Lost in…Modranka

FO ŠK Modranka v OFK Malženice B FO ŠK Modranka / VIII. Liga – Trnava / 10th June 2017 It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Trnava and the town had been awash with red-shirted revellers since late morning. It seemed that Trnava was hosting some sort of annual pub crawl, which I’d only found … Continue reading

Lost in…Trnava (FK AŚK Slávia Trnava)

FK AŚK Slávia Trnava v TJ Družstevnik Dhla Športový areál Slávia / VIII. Liga – Trnava / 5th June I’m ridiculously defensive of Trnava. Anyone that starts approaching anything resembling criticism of my adopted hometown, I go straight onto the defensive and start listing its many virtues. There is a part of me that sort … Continue reading

MFK Ružomberok v FC DAC 1904 Dunajská Streda Štadión pod Čebraťom / Slovak Super Liga / 27th May 2017 Awful X-Factor crooner Shayne Ward once sung “I’m here to win your heart and soul” and apparently that was his goal. A rather abstract and wishy-washy goal if you ask me. My goal on arriving in … Continue reading

OŠK Smolenice v FK AŚK Slávia Trnava OŠK Smolenice / VIII. Liga – Trnava / 21st May 2017 After a few days back in Wales, I landed back in Bratislava at 11pm on a Saturday night.

Lost in…Leopoldov

MTK Leopoldov v TJ Družstevník Dolný Lopašov Štadión MTK Leopoldov / VI. liga – Trnava / 14th May 2017 Slovak football is shit. I feel more than confident declaring that now since it is May and I’ve lived here and watched football here for 9 months. I’ve seen enough of it now to confidently state … Continue reading

FC Zbrojovka Brno v FC Fastav Zlin Městský fotbalový stadion Srbská / Czech Liga / 7th May 2017 “I just can’t go watch Brno. I just can’t do it. And you can write that in your blog.” So I did. These were the words of my compatriot Ralph, as I stated my plan to go … Continue reading

Lost in…Vyškov

MFK Vyškov v FK Blansko Stadion Vyškov / Moravian-Silesian Football League / 6th May 2017 After my day in Vyškov, if I ever buy a dinghy, I’m going to call it Petr Gromský and not Dignity. Who is Petr Grmoský? Well you’ll probably find out over the course of this blog –  chiefly through the medium of song. … Continue reading

BKV Előre v Jászberényi Vasas Sport utcai stadium / Nemzeti Bajnokság III / 30th April 2017 There are always pub quiz questions about which grounds are closest to each other in the UK? Of course, the answer in English football is Notts County and Nottingham Forest, just 0.7 miles across the Trent from each other, closely followed by Liverpool … Continue reading

Újpest v MTK Budapest Szusza Ferenc Stadion / Nemzeti Bajnokság I / 29th April 2017 Of all the European clubs I’ve visited on the continent, the club that I probably still have the most affection for is the Belgian club Club Brugge. I absolutely adore the city of Brugge and we had an awesome day at Club … Continue reading

Lost in…Břeclav

MSK Břeclav v FC Slovan Rosice Stadion na Lesní ulici / 4. Liga – Division D / 21st April 2017 Groundhoppers love a quirky stand – traditional or modern, battered or gleaming. “Have you seen the stand at (insert club with weird stand)?” is a question regularly reeled out by hoppers or declarations like “We … Continue reading
