I think we should sticky this as well ( who the hell's the mod ) along with the players abrod and transfers threads.

Anyway, we have a "friendly" coming up against our historical rivals in all asspects of life, Poland.

Friendly or not, to me this is Russia vs. Poland thus I want our guys to win and if possible win big. The game's in Moscow, and losing to the Poles at home is unthinkable.

Let's go Rossiya ! :thumbsup:

GK seems to be a concern. No playmaker there so we should have Bilya and Zhirkov starting for sure to provide some skill. Hopefully Bilya-Arshavin-Sytchev will link up well, unless Hiddink decides to put in Pavlyuchenko as a sole target striker instead of Sytchev.

I think Pavlyuchenko should get the starting spot againt Poland. He's our most in form striker right now.

Btw our attacking line is DEEP right now, Pavlyuchenko, Sytchev, Kerzhakov, Arshavin, Sytchev, Kolodin, Kirichenko, etc.

Kolodin?:confused:,the guy is a def mid.......

I will say arshavin,sychev,pavluchenko at the moment but maybe this is too much for russian defense and mid to handle........Russia produce good strikers and so few defenders and mid's.:thmbdown:

Maybe Sytchev for his speed, but Arshavin and Kerzh have an understanding on the field.

We could go with a 3-5-2 or 3-4-1-2 maybe.

Bystrov-Kolodin-Titov-Zhirkov
----------Arshavin--------
Pavlyuchenko-Kerzh/Sytchev

Semshov---Bilyaletdinov-Zhirkov
----Arshavin-----

ok it works now.

Anyway, very good first half by us. We're spreading the ball around and we've been giving the Poles problems with our speed. Very very good game by us so far :thumbsup:

Btw, our u-20's beat Kazakhstan 1-0, Dzyuba with the goal.

Saw the interview with Hiddink at half-time. He said it fills him with enthusiasm that Russia has so many people who want to succeed in football and are emphasizing youth development.

He also said that in about 2 years time Russia will be an ELITE team :thumbsup:

2-2. Fair result definatley. We were better in the first half, and they were better in the second.

MoM for me was Sytchev. Torbinskiy btw was absolutely awful.
