    LOL! He played 4 4 2 because the English team cannot comprehend anything beyond that, plus he played a 4 3 2 1 with England really (or attempted to). He always played a 4 5 1 or a 4 3 3 so I do not see how this is a horrible appointment.
    May permanent peace be brought to the Arab world. My heart goes out to the families of those who have lost loved one(s). I wish and hope those who are creating religious, racial, regional, and tribal divisions among/within the Arab nations would be defeated in their quest for the destruction of the Middle East.

    Won't help them though. The Russians will soon intergrate a new system limiting the number of foreign players on the pitch. Not it is 7+4 (at least 4 Russian players), and it is going to become 6+5. As a result, any Russian player will have even more absurd wages. Their system is really fucked up, because they do possess quality young players that perform well at the youth tournaments, but they are eventually spoilt by huge quantities of money.

    Great news. Time to bring someone fresh and motivated to build something instead a gold digger.

    But does Russia have the talent to build a respectable national side? I have not seen them play well since Euro 2008.

    Their U-19 team is doing well though. Will be facing Spain in the final this weekend I think.

    It's a golden generation for them I think. The same group that won the U17 Euros.

    Yeah, you are right, they are the same butch of players. They won through two penalty shoot-outs in the semis and final from what I see. The final on Sunday will most certainly be a good one, with Spain being the big favorites for me. Russia did beat them 3-1 in the group stage though.

    Greece's victory at the 2004 European Championships is considered by most football fans not only as the greatest upset in the history of international football (probably was) but the greatest upset in the history of football, full stop. That maybe an exaggeration, since that Greek national side actually played perfect defense (not something I, or most football enjoy mind you) while all the big guns proved disappointing. Especially in the crunch games.

    But yes, I see your point.
