Polonia Warsaw: One big question mark

I’ve not written about Polonia for a long time.  Back in the autumn when they were winning game after game it was a lot easier to put digital pen to digital paper.  Polonia were playing great football, attacking menacingly down the wings and had two quality strikers in Łukasz Teodorczyk and Vladimir Dvalishvili to finish […]

A history of the Warsaw derby: Polonia Warsaw vs Legia Warsaw

On Saturday Polonia and Legia Warsaw will meet in the next instalment of the Warsaw derby at Polonia’s stadium Konwiktorska 6. In the last Warsaw derby in September Polonia came away from Legia’s Pepsi Arena with a creditable 1-1 draw. The match however was more notable for the actions of Legia fans who fought with […]

A tale of lost love

Source: sport.wp.pl I had to write something after watching Vladimir Dvalishvili’s full-debut in a Legia Warsaw shirt.  For Polonia fans it’s a pretty tough one to take seeing your team’s most talented striker now playing for your deadliest rivals.

From Batumi to Bursaspor? The wanderings of a Georgian striker

As I’ve watched Polonia this season, one player has really stood out for his fighting qualities, and his ability to lead the team from the front.  That player has been the Georgian Vladimir ‘Lado’ Dvalishvili.  Like many players in this globalised world, Lado has moved around in search of success and financial rewards.  Indeed there’s […]

Time for a plan B?

With my first taste of the Ekstraklasa behind me, I threw myself once more into the fold as I went to see Polonia take on Zagłębie Lubin at Konwiktorska on Saturday afternoon.  I was hoping for a bit less of a traumatic experience this time around. The build-up to the game was dominated by discussions of […]
