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

Lost in…Galanta

FC Slovan Galanta v FC Horses Štadión FC Slovan Galanta / III. Liga – West / 9th April 2017 There was a bumper Slovak football fixture list on this Sunday afternoon and with nothing better to do, it seemed rude to not fit in a second game of the weekend. I’d been saving Galanta for … Continue reading

MŠK Púchov v FC Neded Mestsky Štadión / III. Liga – West / 8th April 2017 Victor Valdes, Carlos Puyol, Michael Reiziger, Phillip Cocu, Gio Van Bronckhorst, Luis Enrique, Xavi, Ricardo Quaresma, Ronaldinho, Marc Overmars and Patrick Kluivert – a mighty formidable line-up of players if I do say so myself. This is the team … Continue reading

Lost in…Poprad

FK Poprad v ŠK Odeva Lipany NTC Poprad / II. Liga – Relegation Round / 1st April 2017 Poprad had been on my ‘to do’ list from day one of my Slovak adventures, although I knew of it long before I had even stepped foot in Slovakia. During my previous 5 years living in Manchester, I’d … Continue reading

Lost in…Komárno

KFC Komárno v TJ KOVO Beluša Mestský štadión / III. Liga – West / 25th March 2017 Generally, I’m not a lover of fast food, but on this lovely, Spring Saturday morning, I was very much looking to my visit to KFC. However, there’d be less finger licking and more ground ticking, plus, no Colonel either, as … Continue reading

Lost in…Šaľa

FK Slovan Duslo Šaľa v Baník Horná Nitra Šaľa Stadium / III. Liga – West / 18th March 2017 “Say hello to my little friend,” I declared Pacino-esque as I proudly sauntered over to our table in Partizani, whilst wielding a Tommy Gun. I should probably elaborate. I had my pals Ed and Sean visiting me … Continue reading
