Serbia’s U21 team: proof that anything can be taken apart

The reigning World champions have lost to Spain by 0:1 in a match marked by their missed shots and chaotic play. The U21 European Championship is done for team Serbia.

A mere shadow of the team that brought Serbia new faith in football only two years ago.

Superliga: Partizan je šampion

Nakon odigranih svih 37 kola, završena je ovosezonska Superliga. Partizan je ozvaničio 27. titulu petardom na JNA protiv Mladosti iz Lučana. U niži rang ispali su Novi Pazar i Metalac.

Superleague: The home grown drama rewind

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

Back in Belgrade

Yesterday I came home from the States. It took two flights, a total of 15 hours (counting the customs), and around 40 hours of not sleeping. Some of my travel photos are up on IG.

The sport updates are the following:

Moja superligaška pauza

Pravimo kratku pauzu u izveštavanju o Superligi, zbog generalnog razočarenja u domaći fudbal. Logično, nije ni prvo, ni poslednje. 

U duhu profesionalnog izveštavanja, svakako nije prikazivanje lične emocije. Ipak, s obzirom na to da je ovo još uvek moja platforma i da radim jedino za sebe, urednička politika pripada isključivo meni. Samim tim dajem sebi za luksuz da napišem ovako nešto.

Derbi: rezultatski remi i poraz fudbala

U 153. Večitom derbiju, rezultat je bio 1:1. Samo dva gola, nebrojeno prekida, te igra nedostojna najveće domaće prvenstvene utakmice.

The derby between Zvezda and Partizan ended with a draw (1-1), though representing a defeat of the entire sport. The slow moving game, cut up by constant breaks (fouls) gave very little viewing pleasure to around 40k fans. The stadium was becoming empty even before the final whistle.

Pripreme za Derbi – Derby preps

Poznati su akteri, poznato je i da derbi ne bi bio derbi, ako me ne prati neka prehlada. Čisto da garantuje odlazak na stadion u dobrom društvu. Pratite me na Instagramu, za foto i video materijale, koji će biti dopunjavani u zavisnosti od uslova, a izveštaj standardno. Po povratku iz rovova.

Rezultatski polovičnog značaja, fudbalski odavno izgubljen, navijački, jedno od poslednjih uporišta za pravu predstavu na tribinama… Neka nam je sa srećom 154. derbi.


A football derby (Zvezda- Partizan) wouldn’t be a true derby, if I were a hundred percent healthy. The standard cold has arrived tonight, making sure I went to the stadium in good company.

The afternoon and evening will be all about Serbian football. Full report once I’m back from the trenches, and live materials on Instagram – @sideline_srb, as much as the conditions allow it.

I will keep you updated through the noise and all the colorful pyro smoke, that is bound to put a delay in the match, at least once.

Pre-derby drama

Zvezda will be battling Partizan on Saturday in the 153rd Derby. As in any big derby, there are expectations and drama. Despite being three days away, the match that has yet to be played is causing controversy due to the impromptu change of referee.
