Thanks a lot mate. I just want to ask 1 more thing. We got 3 fighter central backs in our squad and what we need is exactly a smart commanding central back whom can play with ball, i mean good at technique. Do you believe that Glowacki is capable to command defence? Btw a Polish journalist described him as "Polish John Terry" for a Turkish newspaper

Oops i forgot ask one thing more, Is it possible to watch Poland first division game summaries? I couldn't find any stream yet. I've found a page broadcasting goals but nothing more.

Głowacki surely is not a CD with good technique, he usually chooses the simplest ways to stop rival and sometimes his unnecessary long balls ahead are really annoying me, especially when I'm watching our NT's matches, even if he's doing it less and less. But I must say he also fulfils in Wisła the commanding of the whole defensive play's role very well, true mainstay of Krakow's team's defence. And "Polish Terry" titre describes his playstyle really really well I think Oh, I read today in polish site his transfer is only question of time, it's pity for Wisła, because he's true legend of this club...But he surely deserves to play in better league. And that's also a chance for Wisła to make own squad a little bit younger, I hope they'll buy Kamil Glik on Głowacki's replacement because he should go to really good team where he'll have a possibility to developing own huge potential.

Here you are a goals, highlights and other videos from Ekstraklasa. There was also a great forum with all Ekstraklasa's full matches, but 10.06.2010 will be a last day for this forum in the internet

0:6 to Spain. Well, that's the current level of our young talents.

Luckily, football is a kind of a game in which the strength of a team doesn't equal the sum of skills of its players. For the moment Spain has brilliant players AND a team. We have nothing. In two years' time we need to have a team at least

Lewandowski has finally completed his move to Dortmund.

Good for him and for Polish NT too. As examples of Smolarek and Blaszczykowski show, Borussia is a good team to develop into a better player.

And looks like we got Arka Glowacki He'll be at Trabzon this evening. I hope his international career will start good. We have got 2 Polish players in the past. Szmek and Jacek Cyzio. Both of them were solid players. Hope Arka will make his mark too.

I'd say Głowacki is cast in the same mould as Szymek, similar character and solidity Hopefully he'll get some other experience through the playing in better league and Trabzonspor give our NT even better Głowacki than he's now :smileani: Especially he's the best candidate on experienced CD in our team, especially because of our huge problems with defensive line.

So Lech tops group A in the Europa League after two matches. Does anyone think they can pull it of and actually qualify for the next round?

Rob Maaskant gave a positive interview about himself and Polish football in general in last weeks VI, so people like him I take in Krakow?

Generally Maaskant did great work in last months in Krakow. He's got a team which was in dark deep ass, lower than the bottom, the team which was totally ruined by two totally embarrasing knock-outs from European Cups (Levadia Tallin & Quarabag Agdam...) and also ruined indirectly by the selling own best footballers without buying anybody worth mentioning. Additionally the team was also terrible physically prepared to the season by the former coach Henryk Kasperczak.

Despite huge adversity Maaskant started own work from trying to catch up the physically lacks of Wisła's footballers and it cause Wisła ended the autumn on second place in league table, even if it looked totally impossible to achieve when Robert came to Kraków. Now it's time of totally rebuilding of Wisła's squad and we'll see how they'll look like in the spring matches, after the two months with calm training with Maaskant.

Anyway his words about Ekstraklasa is rather a kind courtesy, our best teams would be around 5-6 place in Eredivisie. Only positive thing is that league is really equal, except Cracovia rest teams have been showing similar level of football, so with connection with better and better infrastructure, it makes this...quite average product, as is Ekstraklasa, really interesting thing to watch I'd say.

Lech shows quite unexpected level of football in EL because that's single team from our league which have reasonable, stable personal politics - they have the strict rule that they can't sell more than one important footballer in each transfer window, only for quite huge amount of money. This thing makes that big difference between team from Poznan and the rest of Ekstraklasa's clubs. Unfortunately Wisła and Legia showed really minimalist, shortsighted look on directing of club in last time, but seems it can change itself in next 2-3 years. We're surely able to possess three or four teams which would be showing regulary the Lech's level of football in Europe.

Thanks for the extended reply. Would be nice to see Polish sides do well in Europe. It's getting a bit boring with the same old sides in the CL and Europa League.

How do you rate Radoslaw Matusiak btw? he looked promising for the NT before he went to Palermo and Heerenveen later, he seemed to completely lose it. What went wrong? just not so good or something silly like becoming an alcoholic, gambler etc?

I'm sure that's only question of time when our teams will be doing better in EL & CL. Unfortunately we don't have as large amounts of money from oligarchs as Russia or Ukraine already have, so our progress must be more gradual. But I can't imagine that with those several world class stadiums our league won't jump to TOP15 of UEFA Ranking in next years at least. Especially that Lech's already showed how the rest teams should earning nice money by the playing in ECups - each match in Poznan was played with full capacity 42.000, even if tickets was not cheap.

He was simply not so good. All from his good shape in 2005-2007 years was a huge merit of Orest Lenczyk, the GKS Belchatow coach in this times, who's well known from great physical preparation of own footballers wherever he was - e.g. current good end of round by Śląsk Wrocław is also his merit, before Lenczyk came to Wrocław they earned only 4 points in 7 games and after that their score was 16 points in next 9 games.

And both Matusiak and Garguła, another "star" from those good for Belchatow times, achieved top of own possibilities exactly thanks to Lenczyk's physical preparation. Earlier Matusiak was mr nobody in PL's football untill he was 24, so it's difficult to say he was great talent or something like that. Their strongest side was exactly physical combining his tall height and strength with good pace and agility - it makes from unknown guy from our league a nice playing striker. And he went to Palermo he completely lost that, it seems that lost that for ever. But that's all, he had no problems with alcohol or something like that - he's even well know from play the stock market and generally from investing a money, that's why he even wanted to end own football career after his adventure in Wisła Kraków.

Totally different situation is with Lewandowski, who surely has that divine spark, but if he doesn't improve his goalscoring in simple situations (like yesterday), he'll be only another Valdez...

BTW what could you say about Stan Valckx & Robert Maaskant duo? How's general opinion about they in Netherlands?

It was obviously really good score for Lech, but there's still some uncertainty, because the quality of pitch on Lech's stadium was simply horrible, probably the worst from all Ekstraklasa's stadiums, so there was a lot of fortuity in this match. We'll see today how Lech will look on the well-prepared pitch, in Braga's stronghold, that'll be real test of team worth for them.

I'd love to see them against Liverpool, especially there's less and less probable Lech'll play in European cups in next season...So it seems that's the last chance to gain some points to national ranking from them now.

Can anyone tell me how Aleksandar Todorovski has performed in his first season in Poland?

Is he a regular and also has he been putting in any good performances?

Polonia are doing very well this season i see.
