The world was more inclined to point at the bottom of the Polish league: Stal (Rzeszow) and Polonia (Bytom) were relegated and who were they? Arka (Gdynia) and Odra (Opole) were promoted. And who were they?

Arka (Gdynia) in 1974-75, when they were relegated to the Second Division.
Same boys coming back one year later… Let’s pause a minute in contemplation… Arka went up 1973; down in 1975; up in 1976… replacing Stal (Rzeszow), who won promotion in 1975, only to be relegated in the next season. If the top of Polish football was shaky, the lower levels looked like a disaster. May be the miracle of 1974 was just that: a miracle?
