Morozov - Krylya Sovetov

Nikulin, Tereschenko - Dynamo Moscow products, basically Billlyaletdinov understudies who followed him to AkBars

Just players signed at some point to build a contender. We can't look back at a history as illustruos as that of CSKA, Dynamo or Traktor for that matter. Back in the USSR we've had a team in the 3rd tier league.(I wionder how many young fans today know much about it. Haters gonna hate without ever being in Kazan. There is always a core of fans there, guys in their 50's and 60's probably. They were supporting SKA im.Uritskogo back then. There is fan tradition not to be underestimated in Kazan). the AkBars scholl basically was built together with the team and is still developing. We don't have a lot of home grown prospects still.

BUT in a couple of years the AkBars philosophy will change. Our good birth years from the AkBars school are starting 1995-1996. From there on AkBars would have as strong an own talent pipeline as CSKA or Traktor. I wonder how the management will react to that change.
it was SK im. Uritskogo, not SKA

also, may be you will stop ravaging other schools in the Volga neighborhood too now?
