Vladislav Voronin on the team, which ceased to be a loser.

To understand how insanely shook up “the locomotive” back to the spring of 2017.

It was uncertain, shuffling, stumbling “locomotive”. The President publicly pushed with the coach and believed that Semin was not able to move the team towards a brighter future. Herkus created the beauty of the stadium and placed the loungers on the grass, and the team sullenly sat on the 8th place and slightly pleased, making it difficult for new aesthetics. Major young stars – the Miranchuk brothers – it seems that here-here will go to some kind of “Spartak”.

The team was nervous and had my doubts that Semin is capable of it anywhere. The President has already gone through the names of the new coaches. And suddenly – a flash. The Cup of Russia, where, panting and suffering, managed to squeeze these favorite Seminskii 1: 0. The team ceased to doubt, and was supported by Semin and took the Cup.

But even that trophy was not enough, so that the club ceased to shake. The President continued to look for a coach and at the same time the Board of Directors. It’s terribly grateful to Yuri Pavlovich, but what will happen with the next coach – it’s too unclear, let’s be more ambitious and will choose someone better and fresher. Semin all is accepted politely and stiffly acknowledged that imperfect, but concluded: if everything is so bad and the President is nothing fixed, it’s only fair to go both.

The management of Russian Railways is tired of these fights, and Semin with the minimum overweight has won (4: 3 votes for that coach left). The team did not rebel, “Loco” carefully scratched the glasses and the whole war turned into a quiet, unobtrusive background, all seemed to be in the near future.

Another amazing story – the fate of Igor Denisov.

Perhaps the most indifferent, the most dramatic, the most ostroslovy football of Russia with Semin suddenly became the perfect soldier. At Zenit he organized the crushing of internal revolution, demanding higher wages after moving the Hulk and Vitale. Dynamo was ready to fight with the head coach Cherchesov. And in “the Locomotive” has achieved a transcendent level of self-control: not at all. All the negative emotions he either swallows, or extinguishes, or somehow hiding.

Tell that in the locker room when everyone was showered, Packed and went home. The judges have already completed the Protocol, and Denisov, without removing the dirty form.

This sacrifice, the willingness not to strain other and the actual plowing of the midfield made him a very proper captain of the championship season.

The importance of such individual stories as transformation Denisova, recently told the head coach of Juventus Massimiliano Allegri. After impulsive the match with “inter” (3: 2) he lashed out at broadcasters: “You watch basketball?” The attack lasts 24 seconds. I think in football you win scheme? “Let’s pay schemes.” You can only care about schemes and tactics. Well done! “.

This phrase – including about “locomotive” -2017/18. You can talk about secrecy and strict defense. Semina, on the other hand, is not exactly the same. only tactics, but also metaphysics. Configuration players who have met in my life. Here are the main topics of the “Locomotive”:

Solomon Kverkvelia one of the most consistent defenders in the Premier League in recent years – came to Semin after six months of abandonment in Spanish “Ruby”. He broke away from the bench and so alive, that he could really leave EPL in the summer and winter. Happiness “Locomotive” that this did not happen.

Vladislav Ignatiev suddenly bloomed in place of the right defender and drives the team even in the disappointing games.

Igor Denisov understand that this is the last chance to achieve something significant. No world cup, no departure to Europe, or move to another.

Manuel Fernandes he said that thanks to Semin if escaped: Olga Smorodskaya exiled him twice, and then he finally started to enjoy the work and gave the best half a year in Russia.

Anton and Aleksey Miranchuk. We all remember what Anton Miranchuk has not played for Lokomotiv in the beginning of 2017? He returned to Estonia in the spring of. Alex admits that he is calmer and more confident.

Purchase Farfán all was for the first time, the Peruvian took the leadership, and the coach, openly said that Jefferson’s overweight and that he did not really know its capabilities. Six months later, it was the main weapon of “Locomotive”, which was rivals even after a trip around the world. Now Farfan rushes to the main month in his career (2018 Peru) and killed so that it is difficult to believe that he’s 33 years old.

Seminsky “locomotive”. It’s all closed in and out of the chambers. It’s not spectacular and not assertive attack – each positional attack “Loko” as if fighting the fear to take a risk and open up. It’s too careful, too measured, too strict command.

But in this polyresin season, when “Spartak” corrode internal conflicts (“Loco” stepped through them), when in St. Petersburg the whole year rejects the coach (in Cherkizovo with this too) and when CSKA is struggling with zero in your wallet, accuracy and stability has become a key quality of a little distanced “Loco” from rivals.

Yeah, someone jumps up in the first place, boldly and confidently, and someone – not engrave and scrape his name on the small, timid movements, in the end, stumbling on the “Ufa” or “Ahmad”. But fundamentally it changes nothing.

Lokomotiv is finally wiped away with the mask of the loser.
