Jan Simak saved Stuttgart from defeat by scoring the 1:0 in the return of the Intertoto match against Saturn. In the extra time Marica scored two goals to bring Stuttgart into the UEFA Cup qualifying rounds.

Simak is back :proud:

What a nice goal from a free kick. I totally forgot about him, his career seemed to be over after Sparta dumped him into 2nd German Bundesliga. To think of it, one of the big weak points for NT are the free-kicks. We have no one who can execute them except Rosicky (who likely wont play much due to injuries). Jankulovski and Plasil are both awful as free-kick takers, now Simak presents an interesting choice...

I completely forget of him, do you think he would have the quality required for the NT? Above all physical and mental?

We will see this season :) VfB Stuttgart must have seen potential in him when they bought him from Jena.

He definitely has some mental issues, so not sure if he can ever become a top player (he's not that young anymore). But if Rosicky is injured, maybe Simak can be used as his replacement in place of Matejovsky. Hard to say...

Two assists by Simak today in the 1:3 win over Gladbach :happy: The first one he went down the right flank and layed it back for Marica, the second was a through pass on Gomez.

Time to rename "Roman Bednar for NT" thread into "Simak for NT" :).
With Rosicky and Matejovsky injured, Simak is a natural replacement, but can one trust Rada and co to make a right call???

Kadlec joins Leverkusen

Football player Michal Kadlec, a defender of the Czech national side, Wednesday signed a contract with German Bundesliga's Leverkusen under which he was loaned out for one year from his current club Sparta Praha, Kadlec's agent Pavel Zika told CTK.

Kadlec, 23, played eight matches with the Czech national team. He played with Sparta from 2005.

He spent his childhood in Germany as his father, Miroslav Kadlec, played eight years for Bundesliga's Kaiserslautern.

Kadlec sr. was also captain of the Czech national side.

Kadlec said last week if his current team, Sparta Praha, advanced to the Champions League group stage, he might decide to stay with it.

However, Sparta lost to Greek Panathinaikos Athens in the qualifying round on Tuesday night. This means that Sparta will lose at least 100 million crowns.

According to previous information, Sparta will receive 20 million crowns for Kadlec and if the option is used, it will receive another 80 million.

DROBNY BOOST FOR BERLIN


Hertha Berlin goalkeeper Jaroslav Drobny is confident of being fit for Thursday's UEFA Cup trip to Metalist Kharkiv.

The Bundesliga side travel to Ukraine looking to build on their 1-1 draw at home to Benfica in their opening game in Group B.

Drobny has been struggling with a calf injury which kept him out of last weekend's 5-1 drubbing by Werder Bremen.

But the Czech stopper returned to keeper training on Tuesday, as well as receiving extensive treatment on the calf, and hopes to replace Christopher Gang between the posts in Kharkiv.

"I am feeling a lot better," he told the Berliner Kurier. "I hope that I can play. But I don't want to take a risk. We still have to wait and see.

"There (in Kharkiv) we will decide whether I can play or not."

If Drobny does not recover in time, Gang will be looking to fare better than he did on his debut when Hertha slumped to their heaviest defeat of the campaign.

And the back-up keeper insists he will be ready if called upon, saying: "I am training as though I am going to play."

Thursday's clash is likely to prove just as tough as his first outing, though, as Metalist boast a potent forward line in Brazilian Jaja, already into double figures for the season in all competitions, and Marko Devic, the top scorer in Ukraine last term.

Maximilian Nicu is Hertha coach Lucien Favre's only other injury concern, with the midfielder also suffering from a calf problem.

Despite last weekend's heavy defeat, Hertha have for the most part looked impressive on their travels this season, winning three out of six away from home in the Bundesliga.

But they will need to be on top of their game to improve that record against Metalist, for whom the game will be their first in the group.

The home side lie second in the Ukrainian league and showed their potential by defeating Turkish giants Besiktas in the first round of the UEFA Cup.
