Wow Dynamo with 10 players beat Rostov 1-0 !!! Great win and the fans are incredibly loud for them. Can't wait till they pack that stadium for a "big" clash.
Their budget is 4 times ours, we lost the game due to coach's stupidity awful subs and an experienced player who committed a stupid, yet arguable foul. Unspoken rule - no unnecessary tackles in the Pen. Box.
Our roster was turned over by about 60-70 percent from last season, we are ok playing D, offense is not there, hopefully yet.
Too many average imports also on Rostov.But they should stay up.And about Dynamo budget please they lost Danny Semshov and didn't replace them from the outside. They have developped good young players.
What a demolition today from CSKA !!! Who here told you that Lokomotiv are overrated???
are you sure that Kokorin and Smolov are Dinamo's prosepcts to start with? Kombarov brothers are not for sure. Dynamo's budget is huge, they will get players in summer for the CL. All Rostov's imports are key perfromers for the team, no bench with two key players out (Cho and Gatskan)
I would be psyched with any sort of finish by Rostov which keeps us in the league. We need to do something about our offense which plain and simple doesn't exist. Yet we haven't played a single game with a full healthy roster, Hong hasn't been with the team through the whole preseason and keeps getting injured 'cause of that. When Hong and Gatskan are healthy we'd be a bit better. We also need a capable scoring forward - Ahmetovich is too raw, but with some potential. We have two games with Zenti (home) and CSKA (road) coming up - will be happy with a point here, but I want to see how the team plays in these by far biggest challenges of the young season.
I can't believe Rostov beat CSKA on the road. That's impressive.
If they play like that, they could finish in the top tier.
thanks, they played outstanding and had Osinov scored the PK it would have been a disaster for CSKA. Honorable mention though, CSKA played on Wed in the Rambler Cup and Ziko didn't make any roster changes - little he knew that over in Russia two games in one week is an anomaly, while in Europe is absolutely normal - England especially.
Now the bad news - championat.ru just posted that Rostov and Tom' are already behind in the salary payments and are experiencing finanical difficulties - oh so common for my team.
All miracles end. We play very well, but there was an article in championat.ru that we have fin. problems already. With all the wins u need more money to pay the bonuses. You just never can be safe with Rostov team, but I am really-really happy and proud, both wins are very deserved based on the play! Also props to Dolmatov, I think he's fully responsible for making this team into a serious force!!!
as for potential NT players, I would really start grooming Rozhkov for a CB, he's young been playing very well. Lebedenko (ex Torpedo, Loko, Saturn) looks very good and is having a solid rebound season. Astaf'ev has looked great, but due to hard work, I doubt he can ever crack the NT, but he's been the beast and played wherever the team needed him (originally a striker, converted to midfielder in Vladivostok, started playing d-man in Rostov last year) Mandrykin is in goal playing superbly with some great remarkable saves.
