Coach Brian Priske came, saw and put Sparta back on the league throne after years of ruin. Autumn’s successes in the European League then restored the old luster of the Sparta brand on the international stage as well. “The Dane can do great things,” the Water Bearers agree.
Priske and Sparta also had a good fall in the league, as they spend the winter as the leader of the table. However, the protagonists of the Nosiči vody podcast appreciate Priske’s conceptual work with a very clear effect. “Sparta is getting stronger, more developed, more advanced every month. In a year and a half of work, Priske changed her beyond recognition. Not only have properly selected and incorporated reinforcements arrived, but the team is gradually improving the quality of all game activities and now also has a very strong mentality,” praises Luděk Mádl, a sports journalist.
“Sparta really hit the mark with Prisk. For several years, the club fumbled a bit, none of the coaches at the time were able to move the team in a really fundamental way. And all of a sudden it works with Prisk. He is helped by his erudition, evaluation of data, feeling for selecting players and perfect information about them. Here, of course, I am referring in particular to reinforcements from Scandinavia, to whom he is logically closest,” mentions Karel Tvaroh, a former defender of the Spartan reserve.
“Priske succeeded with Sparta on the domestic scene. And now his systematic work has also manifested itself on the international stage. Success in the European Cup was also a long time coming. And now in the fall, Sparta has shown that it is fully competitive here in terms of sports, with its performances and advancement from the Europa League group. And she wasn’t before Priske’s arrival, let’s face it,” points out Jaromír Bosák, the podcast’s moderator.
Together with guest Jindřich Šídl, the Water Bearers look back on the extremely successful cup autumn played by the Czech teams and also looked for the reasons for their success.
The debate also turns to the first player in the history of the domestic league who played 500 games in it. How did Milan Petržela do it? The water carriers decide what are the strengths of Slovácko, in whose jersey the record holder is now starting. And they also added an opinion on what limits Baník Ostrava.
Traditionally, he couldn’t miss a look at the English league, specifically at the unexpected losses of Manchester City and Liverpool’s unusual ability to turn the score in matches that are better played by the opponent.
