I wrote Matěj šel tam včera and it was not accepted. Is the order of words important here?

Could you clarify why it's wrong?

The adverb "tam" behaves as a clitic (2nd position) in sentences where you do not emphasize it. If you want to emphasize "tam", place it first (Tam šel...)

What about 'Matěj včera tam šel' ? Also something a native Czech wouldn't say ?
