Will you ever ‘Gedó’ know….

…who wiped out Jacek Kirpsza?

Who’s the better player? It depends…Who are we talking about!?
Gusztáv ‘Gedó’ are a full-blooded Hungarian with an aura that almost screams “karamba! at you, the very first time you see him! On the other hand the tiny Polak, Jacek Kirpsza, looks at you with his blond head and his ever so closed (dreaming?) eyes. At best, he’s just shy and at worst he is so shy that the inside of his eyelids is the only picture of the world he feels comfortable with. Before jumping to conclusions and claim Gedó as the better player, we should go along the fair side and have a look at the polish player to see what he actually are able to come up with on a football field. Can he juggle, dribble, run, shoot, pass and tackle the ball – or is he more of a (thoughtful) chess player?

Born and raised in Dolnośląskie, in the south-western part of Poland, nearby the city of Wroclaw, it clearly was in the cards of Dad Kirpsza that, if his son had the talent, he should join the Young Charlemagnes’ Fire, a youth academy attached to the perhaps more well-known, at least in Golden League terms, Raszków Revival. The academy’s unknown status in the public eye – and by ‘eye’ I’m not referring to the bad parody of the “Clint-Eastwood-do-you-feel-lucky-punk!?” eyes that Jacek performs over and over again – is perhaps about to change with players like Jacek coming through . That guy has an indubitable palette of talent! He can be rope jumping with an egg on his forehead without loosing it!

Jacek Kirpsza, or should I say Jacqueline?

Jacek Kirpsza, or should I say Jacqueline?

He can imitate Arnold Schwarzenegger’s voice from terminator and he can even dress up and wear make-up and perform just like a drag queen (I swear that you almost can’t tell the difference!). (In VFJ we are actually thinking of giving him the job as the lady in the bacon-room, because of that talent!)
Its with out a doubt that, the young man sure has many talents! Though soccer is not one of them it doesn’t mean that he can’t make a career. He might not be a master of juggling or dribbling and he might not aim very well when he shoots and pass the ball (thank God he wasn’t the dad of Willhelm Tell!), but he has a slight talent when it comes to tackle the ball! Undoubtedly! It’s just a shame he is made of glass! Hmm perhaps they should nickname him “Splinter”? It would suite him way better than the “Viper” thing. Unless the word (if a bit misspelled) should refer to him being wiped of?

What I’m trying to tell you guys is that Jacek is a really nice guy – he really, really is! He would be a great waitress, nurse or performing well in the Thai showbizz, but let’s be honest; He just ain’t football material. That doesn’t mean we think less of him because of that! No way – we are not like that! At all!

So is that it? Are there no words about the ‘VFJ-Karamba dude’? You bet there are! Gusztáv Gedó was born and raised by Hans and Grethe not so long ago, in the eastern Hungary near the border of Romania. His parents originated from the northern Germany, but life somehow sent them to Hungary…hmmm wait, or was it Honecker!? I don’t recall, but it’s also not that important, I think.

The Gedó couple..

The Gedó couple..

Long story short they were wondering around in the woods eating, got scared by an old woman and ran. They stopped running around Debrecen, but during their breaks on their way to there, they apparently did more than just sleeping. Gusztáv Gedó mashed his way in to life with his head first 9 month later and ever since that day his head have been one of his forces. Life were a bit tough in Hungary at times in his childhood, but his dad always seemed to find a way, both for the family and for Gusztáv. For instance Gusztáv had no football, but living close the cemetery his dad found a spare skull and soon Gusztáv learned how to deliver proper passing, heading and shooting! However tackling were not aloud, his dad said, as the ball then might wouldn’t survive! The other kids around envied Gusztáv for having a ball to play with and that forced him to stay in control of the ball all the time, hence why his such a talented midfielder today. “Keep possession kid!” his dad always said ( not in English of cause!)
One day Gusztáv’s parent again went in to the forest, eating and didn’t came back. Therefore he decided to go to the northern Germany to see if he could find them, but he got at bit to far north and ended up in VFJ instead. If trained there is no doubt in our minds that Gusztáv will end up as first team star and future club legend. Simply because he has the talent and suited with a specialty all he need is some passing and then straight back to skull-ball training!

For Jacek’s advantage it can be said that Gusztáv does not have as much talent as he has, but since it depends on football talent, then Gusztáv is simply ahead. By the way Gusztáv has expressed that he would like to go visit Jacek in Thailand at a time …
