First of all, I have to say that Lech is touched by serious financial troubles. In June 2003 the wealthiest man in Poland, Jan Kulczyk, declared his willingness to sponsor Lech but it has not been followed by any actions. Unfortunately, contrary to what the board members have claimed, they haven't had a "B" plan. As a result, the players are expressing their discontent louder and louder revealing 7-month period without being payed. I guess they get some basic wages though, otherwise they would have left Poznan already.
The current situation is, gently speaking, dull but I believe in early revival.
In about two months the official (weekly) magazine of Lech Poznan will appear (at least I hope so). Exclusively, I can present you the "zero" issue of it:
