for that day, dead or alive.

Keep to the left! The left!

Skeptic! Have you got

two left feet?!

Watch out, Cesar!

Block him, Gooh! - Block

him yourself, you schmuck!


hopefully they won't notch

up more than qhree goals.

"Slavia 2, Olympia 1.

Concordia 2, Citizen 2..."

Here we are:
"Serbian Sword 6,

Macedonia nil." - Read it out!

"Once again the home team's

defense only briefly endured"

the visitors' attacks. This was a

classic example of how enthusiasm

can never be sufficient against

the skill and knowledge

"of an obviously better and

more experienced team."

Here we go! One bowl of soup

for each three of you.

Any meat in here?

I only buy meat when

you win, Skeptic.

So that's why I can't remember

the last time I ate any.

Our respect, Mr Pavlovich!

Respect and deep condolences.

His name is Pavlov,

not Pavlovich.

You don't even know your own

father's name, you bastard!

Eat up your soup, kid!

Wasn't it you who was preaching

about self-respect, Dimitriy?

Well you haven't achieved

much to be proud of so far.

Which is why I have an

announcement to make.

We will soon have the services

of a professional coach.

I've personally invited

Mr Spib to join our team.

Who's Spik? - Rudolph Spitz,

the former Prussian striker.

A German?

Not only a German, Manga,

but a Berliner.

A real gentleman. Used to be one

of the best players in Europe.

A Kraut! - I'm not talking

politics with you, Afrika!

It's not about politics, Dimitriy.

Folks are afraid of the Krauts.

Football is the proletariat game.

You can't bring a Nazi into it!

- And who said he was a Nazi?

- Comrade Lenin said...

Well f*ck both you and

your buddy Lenin!

It's me who formed this club

and I'll run it the way I want,

whether Lenin likes it or not!
