Following on from the Champions League thread (i didn’t want to hijack it further), if anyone fancies talking about Central and Eastern European football?
I’ll start with the news last week that Fabio Cannavaro applied for the Lech Poznan job! http://www.poznan.sport.pl/sport-poznan/1,124479,16526723,Byli_wybitni_pilkarze_przyslali_do_Lecha_Poznan_oferty.html Sadly he was overlooked and ex-Wisla and Legia manager Maciej Skorza took the job. It would’ve been interesting to see what happened and given the league a bit more exposure. Enzo Scifo was also interested.
Also in Poland UEFA have opened disciplinary proceedings against Legia for their anti-UEFA banner. It’s expected their stadium will be shut for 1 match and possibly the area behind the net will be closed for the entirety of the group stage. The fine could be fairly high because it’s not exactly their first run-in with the authorities.
