Re: Poland vs England Oct 16th. 3:00 EST

Can someone please enlighten me about Mierzejewski. Specifically, what does he bring to this team? Every time I've seen him play, he has been downright mediocre or worse. Another PolskaGola! The original! Mierzejewski adds some pace, some dribbles. But nothing much when he doesnt start for Trabszon...

I agree, Szczesny talks too much. At the same time, ALL footballers talk way too much. Andy Carroll thought he was the next coming of Alan Shearer when he took his number at Newcastle. 11 goals later, he's the next hero at Liverpool. It's just the way it is. Szczesny doesn't bother me right now, but...

I might be crazy, but I totally see Szczesny being our number 1 at Euro. Before you call me a band-wagon jumper (maybe I am), but from what I've seen from the guy, he's got all the tools. And he's not a baby, he's 20 years old. With Fabianski injured (and horribly inconsistent), Szczesny could be Ar...

For me, it's got to be Krzynowek's Real Madrid goal. Like the commentator said, he had no business scoring from that far out.

Lapinski and Zielinski never tried their luck outside of Poland though. Tomasz Waldoch has been the best and most successful CB in the last 15 years. I don't see what playing abroad has to do with how good a player is. Either way, point is our defenders were a lot better back in those days. That, I...

A controlled win, impressive passing, impressive goals, an improved defence (still shit), overall very good game. We are collectively getting better and better, almost each game. This. The improvement is clear. When Smuda gets a chance to sort out the D, we will be a top 20 team. Wow, optimistic mu...

I see you've added Dudka in your starting lineup - nice! 8) Hope he can get ahead of Chafni, and Ndinga! I like Dudka, i really do. He's real good at what he does. :D Yea, which is run like a girl, flail his arms wildly, play opponents in on the offside trap, and concede possession. :lol: sad but t...

These two losses pretty much guarantee that Majewski is not going to be our coach. And for that, we should be forever thankful.

I stopped reading after Jerzy Dudek. Majewski is officially the worst coach in NT history.

EDIT: just read that Glowacki is included. How long are we going to try to make this guy the focal point of our defence? He's not up to this level, he proved it time and time again.

So how are the odds looking for Roger to start for AEK in the europa league match? Hearing that he did pretty well gets my hopes up, yet he is still new to the team so who knows.

Not surprising at all. Polish players were accused of being less than focused back to WC 2002. In 2006, they were apparently filming themselves and the pro-Polish crowd prior to the Ecuador game, a time when other teams would be preparing themselves for the battles ahead. Lack of focus is fine if yo...

Janas got results.
He had Zurawski and Franek in the form of their lives. When they were out of form, his results disappeared. He was a horrible coach.

People complained about Leo's selections all through his tenure, but how quickly we forget Janas and his bizarre moves. Nalepa, Kaluzny, Liberda, Jop, Giza, Rzasa, Zurawski as an attacking mid, Mila, the whole MS fiasco and excluding Franek, and not to mention the whole Rasiak fetish. Granted, he di...

I voted 0.

Our theoretically best player over the last two years, Ebi Smolarek, couldn't cut it at Bolton. Enough said.

If you ask me if we have EPL quality goaltenders, I'll say, yes, several.

Seriously, priority number 1 should be to find defenders with a semblance of pace. I'm tired of watching us play the offside, and then get scored on a fucking breakaway. I was actually a fan of Beeny for a while, but he's got to go, if only to change things up. He's obviously lost the respect of the...

Lewandinho should not be allowed to shoot.
