So Brno isn't getting promoted?
Outlook not so good. We drew last week, and are 6 points out of 2nd place with 3 rounds remaining. Ugh, it took us till November to get a lot of issues on and off the field worked out, and I just hope we can keep it together into next season, then we should cruise to promotion.
We're undefeated for the entire 2nd half of season, but at the end of the first half we were just out of the relegation zone.
Halftime and the "superfinale" is still 0-0. Liberec have looked the better side relative to their objective, they seem content to play defensive and occasionally counterattack knowing that they only need a draw.
Plzeň are starting to look very dangerous.
That will do it:
Are the 2011/2012 Gambrinus Liga champions.
Despite the 0-0 result, it was a fine match with many good chances. The Liberec back line (in particular Selassie who largely neutralized Pilař) and Bičík deserve a lot of credit. The atmosphere was great, the crowd over stadium capacity, something that it would be nice to see a little more in the league.
On the other end of the spectrum, 2 Prague clubs will be relegated: Bohemians 1905 and Viktoria Žižkov.
Brno is officially out of the promotion battle.
It was still a great spring, but I can't help but be bitter at what a shambolic mess the fall was and how even decent performance the first few months would have meant promotion. We should be one of the favorites for promotion next season.
Anyway, it appears all but certain that Jihlava will be joining Ústí nad Labem in the Gambrinus Liga next season.
Damn. I will be in Brno in the fall and was hoping to watch a couple of games but if they aren't gunna be in the top division then I don't know. The football is pretty bad.
How long are you going to be in Brno?
I would probably wait and see how they start the season, if Brno starts strong and is playing another promotion candidate or local rival it's probably worth checking out. Brno won again this weekend, so if the spring is any indication they will have what it takes to secure promotion next season.
Brno won their final match of the season, defeating Most 2 - 0, meaning they will finish 4th in 2. Liga. This was the final matchday of the domestic season (Gambrinus Liga wrapped up last week).

There is a chance Brno will still get promoted, but only if Usti doesn't get their first division license, which is a possibility. Sokolov finished ahead of Brno, but there grounds needs a lot of work to get it up to the standards of the first division. This all means that a 4th place team could get promoted.
Do somebody have a czech football magazine league guide to exchange for brazilian or argentinian football magazine?

All the best.
Yeah, I've been following that. The league clubs are having a meeting, if I remember correctly it's this Wednesday, and I expect that it will most likely come down to Usti and Brno, because Sokolov doesn't seem to have any acceptable grounds option (maybe Plzen if they're willing to share, but that's a long trip for Sokolov fans). Otherwise, Sokolov's only chance would be to convince the league that they have a clear plan to upgrade the stadium to requirements by the end of next season and get an exemption. Usti, as I mentioned in the off-season thread, are hoping to get approval to use an acceptable north Bohemian venue (Teplice), as they did in 2010/11 (actually, I think they played on exemption for several years).
I was skeptical that this would happen at first, but increasingly it seems that Brno has a good chance. I do think that the league needs to stop granting exemptions and force clubs to make improvements if they want to be topflight, but it also does bug me a little (even as a Brno fan) that the team that won 2. Liga may not be rewarded.
