There's decent prize money to be won here for the teams so it will be more than simple friendlies. Plus this is meant to be as a precursor to a United league so everybody involved want to put on a good show to drum up interest. Miller will certainly care, therefore Zenit will take it seriously.

Maybe for you, not for me, I won't ever change my opinion of friendlies.

Just to re-iterate -

Players not booked or sent off when they should be
Multiple subs - Will we see an entire team rotated in this tournament?
Fringe players - You will see players who probably haven't kicked a ball for the team they are playing for and probably won't kick a ball all season and who will probably never play again for the team they played for.

They are not proper matches regardless of the cash on offer.

I think there's a limit of 8 subs max in this tournament. And Zenit don't even have fringe players anymore(except for Lukovic), everyone else went out on loan.

And just a few things to consider:

-all our opponents are European quality teams. With the big 5 leagues all running now these are as strong opponents as we can currently face.
-there's always a bit of extra spice when you play Ukrainian teams and the game against CSKA will obviously have it as well
-it's been a month and a half since we could watch Zenit play
-if we win then we can use that prize money to send Lukovic away...forever

8 Subs? Lol!

In the summer tournament Spalletti basically limited himself to 5 subs, will probably be similar this time too. And there were cards given out too, if you remember Rodic got himself sent off.

And if it bothers you so much, just don't come into this thread. That's why I made it a separate topic!

from zenit forum

Но Зенит вообще стал неинтересной командой , смотреть не интересно , ни мысли ,ни желания, тупая беготня, куча брака , ни каких комбинаций , какие-то тупые попытки атаковать

Ой чую, уничтожит Спаллетти Зенит как команду , под сраку и в Италию и чем быстрее , тем лучше

says it all.

Smolnikov was awful. Kerzhakov was Kerzhakov.

Hopefully we get to see Ryazantsev and Shatov straight away in the second half. Hulk too.


Even though we're losing it's good to see Zenit play again. :thmbup:

Arshavin and Neto were probably our best players in that first half. That's right, Neto. Says all there is about it really.

Spalletti did play without a striker at Roma, we should just bench Kerzhakov and play Shirokov as a false 9.
