Re: Jerzy Brzeczek

This decision by Boniek hints at a few very serious issues. 1. Boniek was heavily counting on Nawalka still being interested in staying in his position, and even said in the press conference when Nawalka left that Nawalka had signaled he wanted to stay, but something changed last minute. Boniek had ...

Re: Polska @ World Cup 2018

Thats cause Nawalka didnt bother to call up almost anybody from EK. There are upcoming promising youngsters he couldve used and tried out. He gave some of them chances in the friendlies, and most weren't ready. Point is we need our best players playing consistently at their clubs and if you look at...

Re: Polska @ World Cup 2018

There is a problem with our mentality though, Ofcourse there is. We always loose. Its the same at each tournament when we make it. Why would it be any different? Our few successes came decades ago and were not even that amazing. We find it hard to truly believe that we can win. But then how can we ...

Re: Polska @ World Cup 2018

We just dont produce enough quality players. Especially good technical players able to keep the ball and play it out. I dont like this idea of , "they need to toughen up", "bad mentality", Its seductive as it offers a easy quick solution. Really however its going around in circles. We are not gonna...

Re: Polska @ World Cup 2018

LegiaMistrz I agree with you 100% on pretty much everything you said. In terms of my personal opinion on the mentality issue, I think as a nation and a people we have never really mentally, emotionally and spiritually rebuilt ourselves after the pounding we got from the Nazi's and then getting hand...

Re: Polska @ World Cup 2018

Couple things. 1) Mentality: For those people who don't believe it's a mental weakness thing, please look back at the last three World Cup appearances (2002, 2006, 2018). Completely different players, different coach, different system, same result. You have to look for a common denominator in all of...

Re: Polska @ World Cup 2018

With Glik out and knowing 23 man roster, I think our lineup will be pretty conservative.

------------Szczesny-------------
Piszczek---Bednarek--Pazdan--Bereszynski
-------Krycha--------Linetty----------
Kuba----------Zielu---------Grosicki
--------------Lewy-----------------

Re: Polska @ World Cup 2018

I agree with your picks with the exception of Goralski over Maczynski. I think Nawalka will pick Maczynski for the same reason he'll pick Jedza over Kedziora, which is the fact he has tested him and he feels comfortable with him. Skill wise I think Goralski is better, team wise though Nawalka will p...

Re: Polska @ World Cup 2018

Doesn't Peszko get picked mainly because of his presence (team morale etc.) and experience? I'm not saying that's a bad thing, just mean that I'm not really surprised to see him in there. Also, unless I'm completely behind on the state of Polish footballers, but it's crazy that at the Euros Kapustk...

Re: Polska @ World Cup 2018

Only issue I have is Swierczok instead of Piatek, and why in the world is Peszko on this team? He must really be tight with Nawalka and Co. I'm sure he'll most likely be gone after first cut, but still.

Re: World Cup 2018 Draw

Our style doesn't bode well against any of the teams we drew. Senegal, Colombia, Japan are all very fast, super fit teams that can play at a very fast tempo for all 90 min. The way these tournaments work is you don't want to lose your first game, so the tempo is rather slow and teams don't want to r...

Re: Polska vs Montenegro 10/08/2017

Will we see much difference in the starting unit between now and next year? Besides a hopefully healthy Milik, any other young players that could see some big improvements and become a good contributor? Will Kuba and Grociscki still be as effective a year from now? I know Kuba has lost a step, but ...

Re: Polska vs Montenegro 10/08/2017

What a crazy game, I'm more relieved than anything. Even though we topped the group this qualifying was shaky all the way from the 2-2 draw with Kazakhstan to this game. Which by the way had a stunning resemblance to each other in that we were also up 2-0 vs. Kaz. and ended up drawing 2-2. Meaning i...

Re: Montenegro vs Polska 03/26/2017

Pretty chaotic and sloppy game overall, but this is the type of game where having a couple world class players makes the big difference between an L and a W. The good: Zielinski, Lewy, Piszczek, Maczynski ( :o ), Glik The not so good: Linetty, Pazdan, Grosik, Kuba, Jedza, Fabianski also looked a lit...

Re: Polska Vs Armenia 11/10/16

Our weakness is our lack of swagger, everyone besides Lewy is mentally weak compared to other players playing at this level. You can have all the skill and technical ability in the world, but if you don't have confidence and are mentally strong and positive you're going to disappoint. As a whole we'...

Re: Polska Vs Armenia 11/10/16

Considering Denmark lost to Montenegro and we barely beat Denmark, also considering we tied Kaz. in the first game and then of course the marginal win vs. Armenia I don't see a good result vs. Romania in Bucharest. Milik is out, Jedza's injury is yet to be determined and who knows if he'll be back v...
