For the seed – a tweet of the observer

In St. Petersburg, shame! “Zenith” printed “Ural” only with the help of a judge
Three red cards were given to the guests. Fantastic stiff-witted at the first official match of “Zenith” on “Krestovsky”. You will feel sick.

For the seed – a tweet of the observer of the “Soviet Sport” Mikhail Borzykin. The match in advance caused suspicion.

I’m very ashamed for what I saw today in the game “Zenith” – “Ural” – in the first official match of blue-white-blue at the long-suffering stadium “Krestovsky”.

It is very embarrassing for me that I usually write about football, but now I have to act as a circus critic, because in St. Petersburg a blatant anti-sport clown of unthinkable scale was rattling.

I apologize for the St. Petersburg commentators with the “Match TV”, which ridiculously tried to hang noodles on the audience’s ears, either in fear of losing their jobs, or because of club addictions. They saw enough football matches to distinguish a clean ball game from a rough and malicious foul, but for some reason they refused to give a solid assessment of the main episode in the meeting of Zenit and Ural.

You know, this is one of the most unpleasant variations of the sense of shame – when you blush for those shy to tell the truth of people. Their democratic, smooth and cowardly phrases in the spirit of “The moment was 50 to 50” and “At the discretion of the judge” – this is the worst characteristics for the episode involving Bikfalvi and Smolnikov.

Television “journalists” of the state channel for some reason did not want to tell you the truth – they are not professionals in their business, but only characters in quotation marks. In the ass collegial solidarity and ethics, when it comes to those who frankly sdreyfil microphone.

The 60th minute. Footballer “Ural” Bikfalvi entered the selection, a sock (or pyro – whatever) “pierced” forward ball, which did not have time to Smolnikov. Eric’s leg is not “straight”, as experts like to say in such cases. Bikfalvi by air and within the rules reached for the ball – of course, the thorns of the player of the guest team after clean selection should have been somewhere (ideally – a shabby semblance of a lawn) to land, and just under them appeared the ankle of a latecomer to the ball Smolnikov. Does the word “inertia” tell you anything?

Igor was hurt only because the def de fault through his fault. The mistake of the hesitant Smolnikov is Smolnikov’s problem, but not the competent player of the Urals. There can not be two opinions. Watch football.

For this correct selection, the wonderful arbitrator Alexei Yeskov, who unqualifiedly disassembled the episode, awarded Bikfalvi with a second yellow card, which provoked (especially I emphasize with bold the word) anger of Roman Pavlyuchenko. He immediately got a red one for the comrade Pav.
