A New Miracle on the Vistula?

Found floating around on the interwebs, the cover of a football fan mag that doesn’t exist, but should.

    Sorry to be a pain, but to those who don’t speak Polish, can give a English translation?

    Philippe, it’s not easy as my wife tells me she cannot translate because it’s so badly written but…..


    1 zloty or 8 million Drachma

    Tyton (Polish goalkeeper) kills the Greeks

    Now we are waiting for a new “Miracle on the Vistula”

    History note: A battle in 1920 that the Poles won decisively against Russians. See here – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Warsaw_(1920)

    At the bottom is the hard part. Something like – Czech trainer says we didn’t underestimate the Russians they we’re just better than we thought they would be?

    I don’t think it is Polish, it seems as if it was written in Czechlish, Czech grammar and Polish words.

  4. And of course the bit in the upper right corner is a cigarette packaging spoof playing on the name “Tytoń” which means tobacco, which then reads “Tobacco: kills Greece” (bad Polish grammar, it should read “Tytoń: zabija Grecję”)
