E Side Property, which owns the Eden stadium in Prague, home to the Slavia football club, is in trouble — virtually bankrupt and with no money to pay off its debts. It faces insolvency proceedings, bankruptcy or the sale to another investor. In terms of uncovering the murky past of E Side Property, the Czech public would welcome either of the first two scenarios. But more likely, Prague districts will take a bath.
A massive photo of probably the world’s top football scorer, Josef Bican, was unveiled with great fanfare on Slavia Prague’s Eden stadium two years ago. Now the son of the legendary Czech-Austrian footballer wants club bosses to take it down, saying he is disgusted at Slavia’s record on and off the pitch. Many fans seem to agree with the sentiments at the still stuggling club where Bican set records.
