Russian Football Now Podcast, Episode #4

b0bd97044651Russian football had a difficult weak, with both defending champions Rubin Kazan and traditional power CSKA Moscow giving poor performances on the road in Champions League play.

That was the lead story on the fourth episode of Russian Football Now’s podcast, where hosts Chris Riordan and myself discuss the implications of the results: CSKA’s continued transition, and the need to reevaluate Rubin and all Russian clubs.

Chris and I also get you up-to-date on Russians preforming beyond Russia’s borders, rumors surrounding Zenit St. Petersburg, and how Andrei Arshain’s injury fits a pattern at Arsenal before discussing the league’s action on the pitch.
