    I don't think I'd get on a train with a load of Ostrava fans - they have a pretty bad reputation! :shock:

    I'm sure that majority of fans is ok, but there is also hard core, also known as "ultras" and they could be pretty aggressive. :)

    I wouldn't say I'm an angel, but I'm pretty sure I'm not the criminal the media and police say.
    I know it's not easy to think about, violence is inside the human behaviour, in the global society.

    here in ireland there aren't ultras at all, but crime level, violence, is higher than in CR.

    I'm sure there isn't simple answer, more complex mosaic of many factors - history? temperament? island vs landlocked? impact of living under totalitarian government? poverty levels/distribution? religion?.

    Anyway we could start with this:

    I remember a match Slavia vs FK Vojvodina with both teams in home colours. What a mess! :twisted: :twisted:

    No, I was always Slavia fan, it’s a matter of family tradition.

    Slavia as for the football and Tesla as for the ice hockey, that’s my choice.

    Za my doby(ale to uz je hrozne davno), byli dva velci ryvalove - SPARTA a SLAVIA. Ja byl Spartan. Slavistum se vzdy rikalo "roztrhani" :wink:
    Ani nevim proc :?

    That’s very loose datation. It suits any year since 1893. :D

    Not “roztrhaní” (~ shreded) but “sešívaní” (= seamed). :D
    That’s because of the traditional dresses of Slavia:


    Well, maybe you proletarian Spartans could have called us “roztrhaní”, but that’s just because you are jealous. :wink:

    Slavia Prague all the time. For Hockey and rugby too! I won't say any of the things my boyfriend has taught me about Sparta, as I fear they are much too rude for here, and I don't fully understand some of the chants. Had a great time at Eden stadium this summer near the start of the League- their hardcore fans chants were great to see!

    I can see we're going to get on well, Katie. My boyfriend and I are great Slavia fans and he's a great expert on the ruder of the chants! We prefer the ice hockey and are season ticket holders at the O2 Aréna - and the play-offs are just about to start so it's going to get even more exciting in the next few weeks. But we go to the new football stadium at Eden as well. I even queued up for four hours in the blazing sun last summer to buy tickets for the first league match!

    Incidentally, my good Czech friend in London told us that historically, Sparta was the Communist team and they had plenty of money, whereas Slavia were the intellectual dissidents - which is why some of the more charming Sparta fans chant 'Žid' at us... - with no money. And this explains why we're 'Sešivání' or 'stitched together', because the team had to stitch their own shirts! I don't think that's a very well known story, even amongst Czechs.

    It’s a little cruel to say that Sparta was (is) the communist team. I called them proletarian in my previous post and I guess it suits them better. But it is true that Sparta was heavily supported by commies while Slavia was persecuted.

    Historically, Slavia was established as a Czech national club and was supposed to become rival for the Czech Germans. That’s why the Czech national red and white colours were chosen. The Czech-German rivalry quickly vanished because the Germans were never able to establish a top football team and Slavia profiled itself as a nationalistic, bourgeois and conservative club (and thus attracted a lot of Jews, thereof the Jew-related invectives). It was soonly critised as elitist.
    Sparta was established as proletarian club for the socialists (That was before socialists and communists split.) and thus wears blood-red colour. Sparta was not distinctly Czech, as a socialistic club it was internationalist and thus supported even by the Germans.
    For years, Slavia was the rich team and Sparta the poor one. Slavia clearly dominated the pre-war era. The hard times started with nazism, but still Slavia was the best team. The decline of Slavia started with the communist regime. Commies sent a lot of the players to the uranium mines, both Slavia and Sparta stadia on Letná were destroyed, but only one new stadion for Sparta was built. Slavia was forced to change its name, descended into regional competition and practically perished. It was spontaneously restored during the more liberal sixties and was tolerated up to the fall of communism. After revolution Sparta dominated and Slavia was in troubles because of the lacking stadium. Slavia stadium was built recently and Slavia seems be consolidated now. I would say that Sparta wasted its economic advantage.

    My favourite team is Haná Prostějov, but they play in the 6th level of Czech football. :oops:
