The Jedenáct

The Jedenáct

The Eleven.

A yearly list of the best (and most exciting) young talents in Czech football

The format is simple: Every year, just before the Czech Republic’s league season returns from its winter break, this website publishes a list of eleven Czech-based footballers. Over the course of the calendar year, their progression and performances are documented and recorded. Then, at the end of the year, I report back and highlight the positives and negatives of the past twelve months.

On this page, you’ll find links to previous reports and find out who I’ll be keeping a close eye on.

As with similar projects of this ilk, the list is entirely subjective. I try to prioritise those who are either in the first-team, or those who I feel will be well-established in the senior game in the not too distant future. Sometimes, I go with a gut feeling – to varying degrees of success…

(nb – for the first two years, foreign-based players were allowed)
