Attack/Defence Awareness Card: Defense Minded


By the late 60's ŁKS Łódź had been relegated from the first division, the club initiated a generational change with it's players, Bulzacki at age 17 was part of this 'new wave' of youth products that allowed the club to promote and reestablish itself into the first division by 1971. Bulzacki struggled at first to displace the life long bulwark service of Bolesław Szadkowski at the heart of the defence, but by the 1972/1973 season had won a permenant place in the first eleven, and by season's end secured a personal accolade of 'discovery of the year' in Poland due to his performances.

Bulzacki had repaid the club's coaches great confidence in him, with an excellent attitude and character on the pitch. To date, many supporters of the 'Rycerzy Wiosny' (Knights of Spring) recall his calm and composure in the direction of his teammates from the defensive line, along with a brilliant reading of the pace of opposition.

This breakout season drew the attention of Kazimierz Górski who quickly tried to install Bulzacki as regular international in Poland's defence - giving him 16 caps within the span of year. Though considered a hero of the Wembley match that had qualified Poland for the World Cup and despite being in good form, Bulzacki had at the eve of the tournament lost his place to the junior Władysław Żmuda who had the fortune of most recently catching the eye of Górski. Having had his international role limited to a reserve for the settling duo of Żmuda and Gorgoń, Bulzacki would recieve only 7 more caps, and in 1975 partly by his own choice he eliminated himself from international avaliability - making more time to focus on club football and education.

Bulzacki became a longtime defender of the 'Rycerzy Wiosny', in the role of a stopper and one of the club's greatest players. Most recently besides coaching youths he has dabbled in politics, running for European Parliment.
