    Two idiots with disapointing careers and no they are not national team players, or at least not on the great World Cup team...Put those away for a long time.

    Mamaev is meh, but Kokorin is certainly talented.

    Idiots.

    • Kortrijk
    • Lokeren

    It's well known that in the world of football money is being laundered on a massive scale. Nothing new here. Match fixing on the other hand would be juicy.

    The fact that two referees have been brought in for questioning doesn't bode well in that regards. Agent Bayat, who represents players at most clubs involved, apparently once boasted that only he decides who relegates at the end of the season.

    I just hope they manage to wrap things up in a timely manner. Everybody loses if we end up with a court ruling by the year 2035.

    Whereas Bayat is the big fish in a small pond domestically, Christophe henrotay is a mainstay in Europe. He represents internationals such as Courtois, Lukaku, dendoncker and Tielemans.

    Coincidentally, he was accused today in a separate case of defrauding players of millions when they signed a contract, shady commissions and setting up constructions abroad to launder money.

    Vlasic scores again for CSKA. Well done you halfwits for letting him out on a loan, stroke of pure genius.

    Meanwhile in Russia, the 'eventful' October continues.

    All 4 top teams (Zenit, Krasnodar, Rostov and Spartak) suffered pretty unexpected losses, allowing CSKA and Lokomotiv to jump to the 3rd and 4th places respectively. Chalov has reinforced his scoring lead, having scored the 8th goal, and Loko are on the winning rails now with 3 straight victories. Cream rises to the top.
    After 3rd straight home loss to a very beatable team (this time it's Arsenal, who had only won 1 game before), Spartak has sacked Massimo Carrera, who led them to the 1st championship title in 16 years just the season before last.
    Obviously Kokorin and Mamaev behind the bars are the undisputed drama of the fall, but with Glushakov/Kombarov Instagram drama and now this controversial firing Spartak are doing their best trying to keep up.

    Of the Miranchuk twins, Anton is a better player imo. He has far more versatility and more useful all-around player.

    But Loko’s Powers that be seems to disagree.

    Super Paulinho with a brace. 13 goals, 6 assists in 17 matches.

    Lokomotiv is at 2nd place. This season is really weird. Top teams are Jekyll/Hyde week to week.

    Yes. But this is set up mostly so that those teams have the finances to bring back playing on real grass. Lots of teams play on artificial grass, because it's cheap in maintenance and games are never postposed due to bad pitch/weather.

    The difference between PSV/Ajax and the rest is pretty big right now in terms of finances. I'm not against the idea as an Ajacied.

    Jeez, what is happening with Spartak? Losing to Ufa? That’s pretty much hitting the bottom.

    CSKA Moscow has some really interesting young players. Akhmetov has already reportedly drawn interest from Roma after their last game and I’m certain Chalov is on a radar of several European teams, but their best prospect might be their manager Goncharenko.

    This guy already owns a record of being the youngest manager to lead a team to Champ league group stage as a 31 year old and the job he is doing this season is flat out outstanding considering all the personnel issues that his team has gone through.

    He is providing that he has an excellent understanding of modern game and really knows how to develop young talent quickly.

    It's somewhat stale news by now but I'm just reading about it now, apparently the attack on the dressing room that took place at Sporting was ordered by the head of the club ?? :eek:

    An Irish team faked the death of a player to get a game rescheduled. He had to call his family and friends to tell them it was a hoax.

    Russian teams Krasnojarsk and Grozny had to play at -14.9 degrees. The cut-off where they could have rescheduled the game? -15...

    And it produced one freak goal as a result, the field was frozen. Bunch of idiots making the teams play in December in Russia, it's not good for the players and neither for the fans who stay at home in most places. Look at the crowds in the last couple of weeks, it's terrible and for good reason.

    If the season in Turkey ended today, Fenerbahce would be relegated; they've only won 3 matches in the league this season (after 15 rounds). They also look horrible in Europe but because their group is weak they will actually advance
