I don't know what's wrong with the squad. Krasic isn't in the squad and Samara managed to neutralize both Zhirkov and Dzagoev. It was all Samara initially, which are fitter physically.
Odiah was subbed off after 39 minutes (I guess tactical).
I'd like to see KS in Europa League in the coming season, instead of xxxxx or xxxxxx.
Poor defending by Samara on the corner and Berezutsky equalized with a header. Samara then pressed forward, opening up the game for CSKA. Once Zhirkov took the ball and released to Vagner, there was no stopping. 1-2.
Krasic got strained leg muscle and don't even went to Samara, said the TV commentary. Maybe because of 1 May holiday it was not known earlier.
Schennikov tried to outsmart the ref doing two punishable offences in one action - fouling KS player and then kicking the ball out. He thought that ref will give him a joint yellow for both. But Pettai showed him two in row. Well, at least it will make him smarter for future.
Next game we will probably have A.Berezutsky, Ignashevich, V. Berezutsky, Semberas defensive line.
It was really weird match. I was watching the match with my friend and before the game I said whoever scores first, they will lose the match.. And Thanx God Samara scored first.
But in fact, it was a great come back from CSKA. Schennikov got unnecessary red card. It is good to see Love scored. This year will be very interesting again. We lost to Rostov last week and beat KS at away.
Maazou played as right winger rather. He definitely tried to do same that Krasic. Only in the end of the match (after Schennikov's red and Dzagoev subbed) he started to play ahead of Vagner as striker.
Well thats no shame with Zhirkov on your position I guess, how has he been so far? Is he rated decently? He's just 20 yet, you guys think he'll become a regular or will he keep playing in the reserves and sit his ass on the bench?
Well, earlier this season he was often coming as sub, but after Shakhtar's game when he started instead of banned Zhirkov and was substituted at 66', he was not in the squad any more, if I'm not mistaken (definitely not any more minutes on the pitch). Maybe Zico thinks he is not ready...
Personally I see the talent he has and hope for more but he don't use all the chances he is getting so far.
