    Well Plzen is very strong at home, but yes from the what I heard of the first half Sparta have more or less given up.

    Whoever is next in charge for Sparta has a massive rebuilding job as they are far behind the top 2. It definitely didn't help that Dockal got injured soon after arriving.

    Oh FFS, Plzen now up 4-0. Sparta should be sent to the relegation group.

    Philadelphia's revenge!

    I feel like we are doing our best to draw this season out. So many shots but we can't get a lead.

    Phew, I'm not liking these nail biting finishes but at least we stay 5 clear of Plzen, and Sparta got destroyed. Not a championship yet, but still a rich full day.:laugh:

    The big match results of the day:

    Plzen 4 - 0 Sparta: Plzen massacred a rather hapless looking Sparta to keep the pressure on Slavia.

    Slavia 2 - 1: Jablonec: Slavia come back to take the lead and keep the important 5 point cushion going into the last 2 matches

    From Yesterday
    Banik Ostrava 0 - Slovan Liberec 1: Ostrava are falling apart, and Liberec has now passed them for 5th place. The Silesian's may need the cup to have a chance at Europe.

    Bohemians 1905 1 - 4 Pribram: Pribram leapfrog Bohemians to be clear of the bottom 3 in a match that Matousek just kind of took over. Different topic, but definitely hope he can develop a more complete game because his natural athleticism is something our national team needs.

    Karvina 3 - 0 Dukla: Dukla are now relegated, some people seem sad about this because their early years in the topflight were entertaining. I say good riddance, low budget team with no fans. Karvina are getting results lately, but they dug such an early season hole that most likely will be in the relegation playoff.

    Slovacko 4 - 1 Opava: these teams look safe, so just bonus points for Slovacko. Opava still have a little work to do to avoid playoff.

    For what it's worth, I don't see any scenario in which Slavia loses 2 in a row, I think you can breath easy. Your most likely going to win the double the way Banik is playing.

    Brno 5 - 0 Trinec
    Pardubice 0 - 0 Hradec Kralove

    With that Zbrojovka has guaranteed the final promotion playoff space, and will most likely take on one of Pribram or Bohemians. Not really getting my hopes up against either (think Bohemians is the better match up), but I never would have guessed we'd make it this far so a massive accomplishment by the team to rally from a slow start.

    The championship group matches later today
    Sparta - Jablonec
    Liberec - Plzen
    Ostrava - Slavia

    Slavia can win the title today with a single point or if Plzen fail to win.

    We get to have our home trophy celebration against Sparta, probably the closest those visiting fans will get to trophy for a while :ROFLMAO: .

    Liberec 0 - 2 Plzen
    Sparta 2 - 0 Jablonec
    Ostrava 0 - 0 Slavia (result wins the league)

    An underwhelming result to win a title on. Still, completely deserved, best team and manager all season. Strong foundation to be even better next season too, definitely expect to see Slavia in Champions League.

    Slavia and Ostrava will play for the MOL Cup in Olomouc later today. For Ostrava it is a chance to salvage a season that is slipping away from them within the superstructure, and secure a place in European football. For Slavia it is an attempt to win the double, for how often on team seems to completely dominate our league for a few years (90s and early 2000s Sparta, Plzen 2011-2011) winning the double is a surprisingly rare accomplishment only happening 3 times (and all won by Sparta).

    I am hoping for Champions League, but I feel we will wind up with a stupid playoff draw like Ajax.

    I definitely think we will win the cup today though, although we have looked worn out the last few matches. I understand the league wanting more quality matches, but for teams that have been playing competitive matches since late July this season is too long.

    Slavia up a goal already on a penalty, and Baros did not take the wise veteran approach getting a red card from the bench for his protesting and won't get a chance to play in a Czech cup final for the first (and likely last) time... Not looking good for Ostrava.

    Slavia now up 2 with only about 10 minutes left beautiful pass from Kral springs Masopust making a diagonal run. The winter signings again coming up big.

    FT Slavia 2 : 0 Banik

    A double for Slavia for the first time. This I believe puts Sparta directly into Europa League next year as Slavia and Plzen will be in the Champions League route so the automatic EL spot goes to 3rd place.

    It's possible but it will be an Ajax with at least 2 of their best players gone, Slavia benefits from the fact its best players (Stoch, Deli, and Ngadeu) are mostly in their prime rather than young. The exception is Soucek who is almost certainly gone, but you have Kral, Traore, and whoever they sign to replace Soucek... Sevcik and Husbauer too (although I feel that Slavia has outgrown him based on recent criticisms).

    Most of the playoff teams are at or below your level.

    Next year Kral is almost certainly gone, but not going anywhere this summer.

    I mean, your playing the same amount as any Europa or Champions League level team in any legit league. A Ligue 1 or EPL team plays 38 league matches, in the Superstructure you play 35 of which about 10-12 are big league level. You played 14 Europeans matches and I think 5 cup matches; so 53 matches in total... it's not nothing, but honestly better than playing 30 matches (only 6-8 are quality) August-November and March-May. Makes our league more well conditioned and players prepared for big clubs in my opinion.

    This isn't like a lecture, but more matches is just modern football to some degree. Congrats on a massive season.

    Mlada Boleslav defeated Zlin 4-3 on aggregate to advance to a playoff against 5th place (either Liberec or Ostrava) for a spot in Europa League. While the strangest part of the superstructure in my opinion, the Europa League playoff made for some of the most entertaining matches of season.

    That Europa league spot and relegation battles the only placements left to be decided.
