Serbia was defeated by Croatia in a true derby (11:12) of the Budapest World Championship SF. The Dolphins made a good opening, but ended up on the losing side. A strange result for the reigning World Champions, that eventually had to happen.
Tonight they took a Europa League trophy against Ajax (0:2). Three managers, and a series of result turmoils later, an almost entirely new squad raised the trophy that leads them to the much more coveted Champions League.
Football resembles life, in the sense that it can always get worse.
The SLS has been giving us episodes of destruction and demise worthy of a TV drama, featuring both of the former greats, Crvena zvezda and Partizan. The latest: debts, blame and drama, all set into motion by a match and a press conference.Continue reading Superleague: The home grown drama rewind
Despite being one of the bastions of fight against nazism and fascism throughout history, Serbia is facing an increase in neo-nazi ideology on its stands. The perfect terrain for spreading hatred? A football pitch.
Povrede Miodraga Radovića, samo su najnoviji pokretač debate o navijačkoj upotrebi baklji. Pojava pirotehnike u halama, nije neobična u Grčkoj, Turskoj, Hrvatskoj, ali i u zemljama poput Italije. Nije strana ni Južnoj Americi.
Poslednji dan Stare godine, poznat je kao dan za rezimiranje, rekapitulaciju iz prethodnih 365. Sport nam je tokom 2016. godine dao mnogo razloga za veselje. Olimpijci, mladi fudbaleri, košarkaši, vaterpolisti…
The last day of the current year is always destinated to recaps of the part 365. Sport has given us so many reasons to be happy. Football, basketball, the Olympics. For Serbia, that obviously had to be water polo, which definitely marked the year 2016.Continue reading HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Vaterpolo klub Crvena zvezda predstavljao je simbol preporoda srpskog klupskog sporta. Međutim, crveno-beli su zbog lošeg finansijskog stanja bili prinuđeni da napuste Beograd u potrazi za novim i povoljnijim ,,domaćim” terenom. Nesumnjivi poraz za naciju olimpijskih šampiona.
Red Star’s water polo team has moved from their Belgrade HQ. Due to a huge financial tole the club has been facing in the past three years, the Champions of 2013 have moved their “home court” to the city of Zrenjanin, about 80km away from the country’s capital. This set of events is only the last one to show the truly devastating condition of Serbia’s most prized sport. With a reminder that it is the home of the Olympic Champions.
When it comes to Serbian water polo, there are no ups and downs. As that one song said, “The only way is up”, and once reached the podium, there is no stepping down, just getting another gold. When I said podium, I was (obviously) referring to the first place. Because that is how good they are. It does seem that when the Dolphins are playing big tournaments, the only thing you have to do is check the final score.
Bio je to dvadeseti jun 2015. godine. Vreo dan za najznačajniji događaj u novijoj fudbalskoj reprezentativnoj istoriji. Srbija je postala šampion sveta u selekciji U-20, po prvi put kao nezavisna država. Uspeh generacije koja je momentalno dobila nadimak Zlatni orlići, davao je nadu da se mnogo toga može promeniti. Ovoga puta, na bolje.
