Polish club football. For anyone who is interested in polish club football, the downfall in the results of Polish clubs in europe is clear. In 1964 now 5-th tier Polonia Bytom won the UEFA Intertoto Cup, beating Lokomotiv Leipzig 5-4 in the final. This marked the first time a polish side won an european competiton, sadly it was also the last one. In 1970 Górnik reached the Cup Winners Cup final, beating Roma, Olympiacos and Rangers in the process, before narrowly losing out 2-1 to Manchester City. This was the last time a polish club reached a final of an european competiton. Legia also had a pretty good run in 1970, reaching the semi-finals of the European Cup before crashing out 2-0 to Feyenoord. In 1983 Widzew beat Liverpool and reached the semi-finals of the European Cup. Sadly they lost 4-2 to Juventus, another polish team came so close, only to lose out when it mattered the most. In 1991 Legia reached the semi-finals of the European Cup Winners Cup, beating Aberdeen and Sampdoria along the way. Yet again however, this proved to be as far as they got losing out to Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United. In 2003 Wisła reached the 1/8 of the Uefa Cup, smashing Schalke 4-1 at their ground along the way. Lazio proved to be too strong however and beat them 5-4. In 2011 Lech reached the knock-out stages of the Europa League beating Juventus and Manchester City in the group stages. But now? Polish clubs can't even win against clubs from Moldova, Macedonia, Kazakhstan and Iceland to name few. It's embarrasing how bad the league is, despite how good our national team is and how high the interest in football is. We are now behind Macedonia and Cyprus in the UEFA's league rankings, it's shocking how bad the league has become. The whole Poland misses the times when our clubs could stand up against the likes of Liverpool and Man Utd. Now even Astana and Sheriff are too strong, it's about time to change this. Which leads us here. Olimpia Zambrów is a Polish football club located in Zambrów, Poland. It currently plays in Polish Third League. The team's primary colors are blue, white, and black. The club has never been higher than Polish Third Tier (second league= 3rd tier) and is a very small club, hence why it got relegated from the 3rd tier last season, where even my **** local team stayed up. I wanted to get them (Olimpia Elbląg), but they wouldn't pop up, so I went with Zambrów instead after holidaying one year, as it's 100% the smallest club that can possibly pop up. We barely have any players, let alone good ones. Don't let the stars fool you, 4'5* is barely good enough for this level. This is going to be a long year, trust me. The bookies seem to agree But hey! At least we have a lot leagues to get players from! I'm going to meet you just before the first game of the season, after the pre-season ends. Stay tuned
