EURO 2008: Slovakia vs. Wales 2:5. We reached the bottom.

A little bit easier tonight, against Wales. Kocian will play more or less a similar team from Saturday.

All one can do is laugh, nothing else. Embarrassing result, embarrassing team.

Shame, absolute shame at what the national team has become.

Is this your third choice keeper? Defending was absolutely horrible. This type of loss merits a coaching change but you already had one in this campaign... Maybe time to get a foreigner as a coach, seems to be working for Poles

Senecky was the best keeper in Corgon Liga (he has since moved to Turkey), but he's been a little disappointing even though the defense has been shocking at times. It was good (and necessary) of Kocian to give someone else a chance because Contofalsky isn't exactly a rock back there either.

But goalkeepers are the least of our problems in the future. Hajduch, Kamenar and Kuciak will be very good, so I'm not too worried there.

Bellamy sliced us today; Wales were very efficient and incisive.

As far as Kocian goes, well, I do like his attitude but question his tactical capabilities. We play very naive at times; slow and not aggressive enough when we build attacks. He should be given another chance for the WC 2010 qualification, IMO, even if the team and federation looks a bit tipsy at the moment.

Marek Cech said that he would have liked more people to come see the match.

Terrific suggestion, Marek. Would you like some caviar and Dom Perignon before every match to motivate you as well?

Let´s summarise why should slovak fans come back to stadium:

1. support the most cowardly team in Europe
2. get robbed by buying expensive tickets
3. get stressed already before the game due to 60+ mins long security checks
4. get wet and freeze in ugly dirty stadium offering no comfort
5. being thirsty and hungry because all the 2 canteens on each side are always packed as hell.
6. when you go nuts and trying to set fire on stadium dumb firemen will hit you with cold water

sounds good, eh ?

ok, the biggest positive is you can choose seat whatever you want, there are always thousands of free seats around you
