This situation has not happened in 29 years. Kolejorz was in the lead for the last time after the full first round of games in 1992, which ended with winning the championship from Legia Warszawa and ŁKS Łódź (for corruption). Therefore, it is a good omen before the end of this season, which is special for Kolejorz. Lech wants to win its eighth title for its 100th anniversary in 2022.
Then the Lechites were leading one point ahead of ŁKS Łódź and two points ahead of Ruch Chorzów and Widzew Łódź. Now the team from Poznań is three points ahead of Pogoń Szczecin and five points ahead of Lechia Gdańsk. 29 years ago, Lech was sure that he would remain the leader until the new year, now there is no such certainty. The autumn round is over, but there are two more rounds of the spring round ahead of us – the team from Poznań will face the revelation of the season, Radomiak Radom away and before Christmas Eve with Górnik Zabrze at home. He is also winning lately, so the task is not easy.

However, even such an autumn as the present one is not remembered by many Kolejorz fans. This is a complete novelty for the younger generation, contrasting with the “achievements” of the Lechites in recent years. Now Lech is systematic and effective enough. He now has 38 points, more than the entire previous season, which ended up in an outrageous eleventh place.
– This is not the time to praise the team, because the games are not over this year – says Maciej Skorża, but adds that Lech made a great impression on him and even surprised him in many respects. – I have great respect and appreciation for this round. The work of everyone has made us in the first place – he adds, and the appetites of the fans in Wielkopolska are enormously aroused.
