Lost in…Prague (Dukla Prague)

Dukla Prague v Sigma Olomouc Stadion Juliska / Czech Liga / 30th March 2018 Dukla Prague and the Wirral-based indie band Half Man, Half Biscuit are undoubtedly seeped in the realms of hipsterdom for eternity. This is all thanks to a song off the band’s 1986 debut EP: All I Want for Xmas is a … Continue reading

Lost in…Prague (Meteor Prague VIII)

Meteor Prague v Motorlet Prague Fotbalový areál Libeň / 4.Liga Division B / 30th March 2018 Hale and Pace, Paul Daniel and Debbie McGee and Jedward – all great double acts. Oh…well, they’re not are they? Well, in groundhopping circles in previous years, me and Gibbo probably fell into this weak double act bracket, as … Continue reading

Lost in…Olomouc

SK Sigma Olomouc v FC Slovácko Andrův stadion / Czech Liga / 3rd March 2018 Thanks to a combination of an early love for Championship Manager and a mid-90s UEFA Cup run, I had heard of Sigma Olomouc and thus as a result the city of Olomouc. However, my knowledge of Olomouc stretched as far as 1) it is … Continue reading

Lost in…Zlín

FC Fastav Zlín v Dukla Prague Letná Stadion / Czech Liga / 16th February 2018 Winter is no longer coming and is soon to be leaving in fact. Unlike the Game of Thrones’ world of Westeros, where ominous winter brings the terrifying undead army of the White Walkers, winter in Central Europe brings a far more frightening … Continue reading

Lost in…Blansko

FK Blansko v Ždírec nad Doubravou Stadion na Údolní /  4. Liga – Division D / 28th October 2017 Before I moved to Central Europe, it would have probably been fair to say that my Czech geography knowledge was average at the very best. If you had asked me to point out the Czech Republic on … Continue reading

FK Hodonín v FC Viktoria Otrokovice Stadion u Červených domků /  Moravian–Silesian Football League / 14th October 2017 I send a message to Ralph RE going to watch football in Hodonín… ‘What’s the town like?’ ‘Crap’. ‘The football ground?’ ‘Crap athletics ground’. ‘Oh…so why should we go to Hodonín?’ ‘Well there are two breweries in the centre…’ ‘See … Continue reading

Lost in…Znojmo

1. SC Znojmo FK 2 – 1 MFK Frýdek-Místek Městský stadion / Czech National Football League / 18th August 2017 I’ve always said that one of the best parts of groundhopping is visiting places you’d otherwise never go. Across the UK and Europe I’ve been to some truly beautiful places thanks to football, but also some monstrous shitholes. … Continue reading

Lost in…Plzeň

Viktoria Plzeň v AEK Larnaca Doosan Arena / Europa League qualifying play-off / 17th August 2017 Football and football stadia are obviously the chief fulcrums of this blog, but of course there are other key components too. I’d argue that the next major ingredient is ‘travel’ in general, which further umbrellas the Lost Boyos’ other … 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
