Interesting.For me personally, it all started with Euro 2008. Russia really surprised me and got me interested in the team, and I did some research and found out all players played in Russia :| so I was quite impressed, and I followed the RPL from there. Then, I saw Zenit play in the Champions League and they really impressed me, especially against Real Madrid. And well now, 3 Hungarians play in the RPL, and I follow every Hungarian player in every league. First we have Huszti at Zenit, then Gaal at Amkar, and Nemeth at Tom. First I followed Gaal, because Amkar did very well last year, and their defense was the best in the league, and Gaal is a left back (he hasn't played this year due to injury) and he got a lot of hype from the Hungarian media, because hes not in the NT and our weakest position is LB and he was an important part in Amkar's success. Now Huszti has moved to Zenit and hes one of our biggest talents so I follow him closely (but not much to follow so far... but i'll leave that). Lastly Nemeth.. don't really know how he got there, he was a good player in the NBI but didn't expect him to get signed abroad, esp not to the RPL. Anyways I'm happy for him, he seems to be a starter there (well hes just came off a sickness and has missed a few games).
So in conclusion, I became a fan of the RPL because of Russia's success in the Euro 2008, Zenit's display in the Champions League, and the fact that Hungarian players play there :thumbsup:
are you trying to write 'was he fairly...' or you added the question mark by mistake ?Interesting.
I would really like to see Huszti play more. He was fairly effective in Germany?
No never been a Zenit game. Unfortunately went to St. Petersburg on an international break last time. And this year will be during winter break if I go. I will go eventually though, but probably not before they open the new arena. Also my gf/friend is scared to go. She lives near petrovsky coincidently....That's a cool story, great experience for you, most people wouldn't have the balls to do that :thumbsup:
Please tell me you've been to a Zenit game....did you meet your ex in Piter or from L.A.?
Why didn't you go to a game when you were there studying abroad?No never been a Zenit game. Unfortunately went to St. Petersburg on an international break last time.

I met her from St. Petersburg.
LOL the funny thing is people don't realize it takes balls to go to St. Petersburg. Even people I know who went there on vacation for 3 days talk about how its the greatest city ever. I don't think they realize..... I mean I like the place but its not like Oslo in terms of living conditions.
I don't know, was busy, didn't really know what I was doing when I was there.... stuck with the group of Americans I was with a little bit too much.Why didn't you go to a game when you were there studying abroad?
Wow man that's cool you actually met a girl in Russia and made it last, I'm pretty impressed. I'm guessing you communicated in English though :tongue:
