removal of Bragin from the U20 is a huge step backwards for the NT. But he was inconvenient for people in the FHR, who use junior national teams as a source of income - by auctioning off spots on the team. They must be having a celebration today! Another Parfenov or Rumyantsev is a treat for them.
Now Bragin as a club head coach is also a mystery to me, he's a strict coach, and this kind of near-soviet methods will not work with spoiled adult players. Not to mention that he comes from Spartak organization - but that's the least of my concerns, right now.
