Next Sunday begins our defence of the Russian Championship as we aim to make it 4 titles in the last 6 seasons. We today added the Russian Super Cup to our Trophy Cabinet.

Early team news -

Garay is on an extended break after the Copa Amercia, I'm pretty sure he won't be back. Danny picked up a slight knock in a pre-season match, he is probably going to be out but not definitely.

Finally, as said before, I will be in attendance for this one!

Let's go Petrovsky, let's go Zenit!

Interesting Dyukov has said that we're trying to extend Witsels contract. If would be funny if all those rumors of him leaving were just a negotiating tactic.

Garay arrived back in St Petersburg yesterday, I would say unless he is carrying an injury or is really out of shape, he starts v Dynamo!

I'm predicting this will be our line up v Dynamo Moscow (I'm assuming Danny isn't fit and this takes into account the new 5 Russian players must start rule) -

Lodygin (Russian)
Criscito (Italian)
Lombaerts (Belgium)
Garay (Argentina)
Smolnykov (Russian)
Witsel (Belgium)
Garcia (Spain)
Shatov (Russia)
Ryazantsev (Russia)
Hulk (Brazil)
Dzyuba (Russia)

Bench - Rondon (Venezuela), Fayzulin (Russia), Anyukov (Russia), Ansaldi (Argentina), Kerhakov GK (Russia), Yusupov (Russia) and Neto (Portugal).

Plenty of Russian options from the Bench.

2-1 zenit.

that 43 minute decided the game,ggod game overall by dynamo with 10 players for 45 and no cb's,smolnikov and shatov the best in zenit.

Denisov mvp,what a beast...gabulov also great.

each villas boas press conference you feel he is going to leave zenit.

i am waiting four weeks for new player he says.

no wonder zenit is not doing pre game press conferences now.

Brilliant game, we had amazing seats (Sector 9), I couldn't initially work out why our tickets were the most expensive after the VIPS now I know why!

The Zenit ultras in sector 12-14 created a great atmosphere, there noise and backing of the team was the same at 1-0 down to 2-1 up.

Witsel easily man of the match, that volley if it had gone in would have been awesome! Valbunya from Dynamo had a great game, no idea why they subbed him.

We were quite close to getting Neto' s shirt at the end of the game. It was just a few rows from where we were.

Good fun game. When Dinamo ended the game with zero foreigners I figured Kleber might have a heart attack. This isn't what he watches this league for.

По итогам 2014 года "Зенит" показал свой худший финансовый результат в истории, сообщает "Интерфакс". По данным системы финансовой отчетности "Интерфакс-СПАРК", которая основана на налоговой отчетности компаний, убытки питерского клуба составили 5,2 миллиарда рублей против 320 миллионов рублей в 2013 году. Выручка клуба составила 6,1 миллиарда рублей.

oh well....

start to predict that zenit might be banned from europe next season.
this 2014 numbers are a disaster!

no wonder they are spend 0 in new players this summer,barely 20 millions last summer.

the ruble collapse realy hurt the russian clubs.

Lol okay, Kleber. Why weren't we banned already then?
Uefa is yet to know the numbers.

for sure when they know they have no other choice than to ban zenit.
the ruble collapse doesn't explain everything.

russian football have zero chance against uefa financial fair play.

i predict all this back in 2012,completely lunatic to spend 100 millions in two players, but things got much worst last year with the ukraine crisis.
