We had an unsuccessful start to the season, but then we recovered. Yes, we could have more points and play the championship until the last round. In the second round "Locomotive" slightly slowed down, but we did not use it. But I do not belittle the merits "Locomotive", who held a good championship".

Goalkeeper "red-white" Alexander Selikhov about where the team lost points:

"That "Locomotive" became a champion, found out only during the break. You can congratulate "Locomotive". In the first round I also made a gift to them. If it were not for our absurd matches, then we would have competed to the last. You can remember the matches with "Ural" (1: 2), "Tosno" (2: 2), "Locomotive" (3: 4), when led in two balls. Winners are not judged".

Forward "red-white" Quincy Promes on his captaincy:

Who chose me as captain? Uh, I really do not know. I always try to lead a team with me, regardless of whether I have a bandage or not. We won two matches with my captaincy – a good tradition. Our real captain is Denis Glushakov. We respect him, he led us to the championship. We must not forget what he did for the team. Of course, I miss him on the field. He has qualities that help the team. I hope that soon he will return to the".

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich after the match "Locomotive" and "Zenith" managed to come and meet "red-white".

The team must be cohesive. Denis Glushakov came after the match in the locker room, the atmosphere is normal. The team is set up to win in the last match. I hope that three Moscow teams will occupy the first three places (in the Premier League). I hope (for three teams from Moscow in the Champions League), I’m from Moscow".

"Positive emotions from victory. Looked like "Spartacus" played the last match with "Amkar", it was evident that the guys had a fuse. For today’s game, initially it did not work, but the desire was. And this is the most important thing. When you see how the players are laid out, there can be no claims. In the last game you have to win "Dynamo", to guarantee the second place. Upset (because of the championship "Locomotive")".

To get away from Tutberidze or to leave sports – Evgeny Medvedev decides

To get away from Tutberidze or to leave sports - Evgeny Medvedev decidesEvgeny Medvedev

Evgenia Medvedeva from Eteri Tutberidze. The news in itself is not news, but this information is the best fertilizer for the birth of a new rumor.

Medvedev, by the way, not the first. Went from Eatery Bonner often and loudly, here’s how she remembered it:

"Polina Shelepen. Ran away from Novogorsk, and then I never saw her again. She did not say goodbye. Alexandra Deeva. In the first season after she left, I saw her at the event. Also passed me and said Hello. Adian pytkeev, the only athlete of those who went and came with me to say goodbye. Gave a bouquet of flowers. And started to cry. I saw his tears, and cried. But asked him – why are you crying? And he said, "I feel sorry for you, you so many years I spent". I told him no, Agian, sorry for me just do not need. Seraphim Shanovich. Her family, unfortunately, are unable to live in two cities – the mother in Moscow, the Pope in St. Petersburg. Petersburg. In addition, different circumstances: SIM mom very badly and took a flat in Moscow several times robbed. Now, when we meet at competitions, she always greets. Yulia Lipnitskaya. I’m from Julia, in any case, but it was clear. When I was pushed from the competition through the Federation. Of course, I was hurt. Sergei Voronov. At the rink I did not see him, the documents were taken by his mother. And again, just came out of the interview, from which I learned that he went to Inna Goncharenko. Now greeting, but the first year out, the competition did not greet. Why? It’s ugly".

And now Medvedev. I recall the chronology. The first talk of the discord in the Duo Medvedev / Tutberidze on the sidelines rinks appeared in the autumn of last year, but strictly on the level of gossip in the corridors, without going to the media and blogs. Before the Olympics the talk has been increased and reached the discussion to go. Then there was the talk of the new coach, Brian Orser, allegedly, ready for the two main stars of the world men’s figure skating (Yuzuru Hanyu and Javier Fernandez) add a star and in the female, especially the Han / Medvedev with a strong potential commercial brand, that work in the same group. Immediately after the Games, talk about the fact that Medvedev’s leaving Tutberidze, came out in the media and was followed by a sharp rebuttal from Medvedeva (only from her):

"Dear journalists, calm down! The news is that today I’ve been on the Internet, brought me to a screeching halt. Do not invent what is not. Get busy! Leave me and my coach. We continue to work"- said Medvedev. Those who have to figure skating attitude, even tangentially, not to mention those who are involved in the process. And now, two months later, confirmed the information, and even detail about the reconciliation that is possible.

Obviously, it was all pick and rushed to be expected. From Eteri Georgievna enough students and now three potential Olympic champion without Medvedeva (Sagitova / Trusova / Kostina, and there are more and Shcherbakov, each of which has in the Arsenal of the Quad). Medvedeva’s just hard in such a young company. She’s growing up. Growing and Sagitova. And in the women’s figure, skating now than you are smaller / lighter, the easier it is for you to execute the elements ultra-si.

And let Eteri Georgievna said that Medvedev always in the fight and it does not stop her, but the sensation is exactly the reverse: that Jack wants to comfort, which will not be here. Here are the words Tutberidze of the only pre-Olympic interview: "Eugene whole life is in competition. Once with Polina Shelepen, who was much stronger than her. Then next was Julia Lipnitskaya. Then edge to edge, very close, turned out to be Seraphim Shanovich. And Jack always fought for the attention to her as an athlete on the ice. Therefore, this competition is quite familiar to her. Of course, it adds some kind of nerve training. But … let".

Tutberidze absolutely nothing to lose from leaving. No-th-th. How she lost with the departure of Yulia Lipnitskaya. But Eugene … that she will be very, very hard – that’s a fact. The question is – does she want that? Another four years of grueling workouts, no guarantee, and on the other side – the glossy life of freedom, fun, TV, magazines, receptions, and the opportunity to choose their own ice show is Ilya Averbukh, is Evgeni Plushenko, is Tatiana Navka . I am sure of each of them will gladly take the star of such magnitude.

And there will be situations where Tutberidze roll Medvedev on ice and raised her voice, otherwise there may already not working, and Tutberidze consciously does it and quite logically explains: "Yes, I swear. Cause you are the athlete through "do not want" to do what it needs. That’s all. Acting like a normal parent, who is obliged to educate and monitor their child’s education. Just because he loves him. If you stop to watch. It is clear that the baby is hard. The coach is also not easy because each athlete is trying to somehow. So, we have to talk to him, cursing, and even some methods to look. Sometimes Zhenya serious talk. She is a big girl, speech is sufficient. Sometimes you have the TV remote control to raise the level of speech. And then, in front of her, took a lot of different examples. It is very early to seriously to ride, and she can always be reminded – "what if". She has something to remember"- said Tutberidze last year.

And here the decision should only be Zhenya. It’s her life, her right. After all, in such a crazy domestic competition, even getting in the squad will need to gnaw, to scratch and beautiful (really beautiful) eyes one team to the detriment of the result will not take. If only was not thinking about the change of sport nationality. Here, by the way, you need to let go. And in any case not to interfere.

Almost a train. Semin puts on the defense and rightly so

Almost a train. Semin puts on the defense and rightly so

“Attack wins matches, defense wins titles” – this catch phrase is generally attributed to Sir Alex Ferguson, but there is no doubt that it reflects the coaching philosophy of Yuri Semin.

Two of the championship “Locomotive” under his leadership in the early 2000s, was produced in a very pragmatic style, which meant a reasonable balance without bias attack (both times the railwaymen were not in the top three performance, but missed the least in the League) and the strict observance of discipline.

This season is on the safe side once again is justified (19 goals conceded is the current minimum), and the spring part of the championship “the locomotive” has played in 6 of 8 matches “zero”.

The average “norm of tolerance” is 2.8 scoring chances at the gate (less than just “Rostov” and 2.6 per game) and, more importantly, significant drawdowns on this level the memory of a dreadful 1-8 in two games against atlético this season).

Almost a train. Semin puts on the defense and rightly so

In home games defensive statistics Loko looks particularly impressive, although it is possible to find a formal exception in the form of the March match with “amkarom” (7 points allowed), which was played at Cherkizovo, but de jure was listed as away.

The key to defensive stability is no obvious structural defects and weak links, high-pressure damaging effects. All key components – a positional defensiveness, resistance, counterattack and standards team. Semin can put a rating range from “good” to “excellent”, although hard-to-explain failures happen, too.

Almost a train. Semin puts on the defense and rightly so

For example, a glaring error out of the blue Pejcinovic, who gave Smolov a goal in the last match with the “bulls” absolutely uncharacteristic neither for the team nor for him personally. For the first time in the championship uncompensated loss of players “Loko” in the defensive third, led to fatal consequences, and to catch in the slip consistency.

Almost a train. Semin puts on the defense and rightly so

Thanks, the ad is hidden.

A relatively weak place “Loko” it can be assumed that vulnerability to long-range artillery. After the shots from outside the penalty area, the team, the semi- missed almost in the middle of the league (6 of 19) – all of them occurred in the autumn.

However, in the same game with “Krasnodar” was more curious from the practical point of view, the event.

Almost a train. Semin puts on the defense and rightly so

The fact that until the last round “the locomotive” remained the only team that never missed after the opponent’s attacks from the right flank. It looked especially weird because the left-and-behind position in the “Loco” is the most large-scale rotation (in the last matches Rybus staked their place, but Mikhail Lysov and Vitaly Denisov should be the most vulnerable.

Funny that the “soak” this statistical anomaly, it was able to “bulls”, which flanks attack very reluctantly – in contrast, Zenit, under such a game as sharpened. By the way, in the first leg of the team, Mancini was badly battered “Loco” again on the flanks, although for the season “railwaymen” flanking the resistance and “krasnostawski” (at least in the three episodes of seminci, frankly bounced) at a very respectable level.

Almost a train. Semin puts on the defense and rightly so

Thanks to the 196-centimetre giant Kvirkvelia and powerful Tarasov Lokomotiv is good and neutralize the hinged standards (only 3 goals conceded – less only “Zenith” and “ruby”), although in the spring the filing of Paredes, almost every game have a real goal-scoring perspective. Whether the Argentine braid to go around the Georgian boulder and find a light ball head or other body.

Especially for the official site of FC “Zenit”
