A Place For Polish Soccer Fans
Will pisczek be availabe against ukraine and england? He must be...
No, and what's the point, we won't qualify
fuck off man. we still have chances.. we played pretty well against montenegro and should have won. agasint marino it was our B team and 5-1 is okay. we need to win agaisnt ukraine and wverything can happen at wembley CONSIDERING that england might alreadybe qualified
It always 'we should have won'
i know... im only 22 and hopefully before I die I'll see the team my parents saw in the 70ths
Why are we still arguing like we "still" have a chance? Mathematically, yes. But we need a reality check. These qualifications ended up like we all knew it would but did not want to accept. Going in, we were the 4th best team on paper and we certainly played like it.Now they need to decide if Fornalik is the guy to lead the team into the Euros. He will need a contract extension to give him credibility, leverage, and bring some stability to this program. If not, find someone else.
On paper we are easily the second best team in this group, on the pitch its a whole different animal.
Ukraine rapes us... don't care whats on paper.. they are the better team
No, we're not the second best team. While on par with Ukraine offensively, their defense is far better. Poland have given up 9 nine goals and found themselves trailing in 142 minutes of game time. Ukraine have given up just 4 goals, trailing for 45 minutes of one game, their loss to Montenegro. Two of the other goals they conceded had no effect on the result of the game as they came after Ukraine was up by 2. That final goal they allowed, an 87th minute penalty kick by Frank Lampard to seal a 1-1 tie with England. Chances are that Ukraine's defense holds us. They've made mistakes before, to little consequence for them, but it can still happen. Regardless, whether they qualify or not Poland needs to show improvement in these last two games that they can build on for less likely Brazil 2014, more likely for qualifying for the 2016 Euro. Progress is not made in leaps and bounds, but one step at a time.
Nice stats. Ukraine does have a much better defense. Not gonna lie, they deserve the 2nd spot. They will do much better in the World Cup then we would.
the real sad thing about this campain is that we lost 2 points to modlova and we were VERY unlucky in both games vs Montenegro.... yes we have a lot of weakneesses in defense but fuck on paper with PIszczek, Glik(captain of a Serie A team!), Boensich (starter with a top club) we shouldnt be that bad...
I give our team chemistry a F grade
You guys all fucking suck. C'mon Polska, there still is a chance, and we can nick it, even if we're the poorer team on paper!
