Supergrass – St. Petersburg

The beautiful game has been reborn and it’s wearing a Russian jersey. This classy football team led by the extravagantly gifted Andrei Arshavin arrived at Euro 2008 as rank outsiders but they have slowly become the team of the tournament. Seeing them outplay a much fancied Dutch side has been one of the many highlights from a glorious Euro 2008. Much of the credit must go their Dutch manager, Guus Hiddink, who has applied his total football philosophy to a group of technically brilliant players. We may have been crying into our beer as Portugal and Croatian went crashing out but this more than makes up for it. Of course we should have seen it coming, one only had to marvel at Zenith St. Petersburg performance in the UEFA Cup to see that Russia is currently endowed with a rich crop of bright new talent. Seems their natural resources goes far beyond that expensive stuff that’s found in huge barrels. KD

    Good win for the spandidos in the end last night. I love how the rooskies all looked so well… russian. It’s the hair methinks.Like the supergrass tune too, shockingly under-rated band.

    Yeah you’re right JJ, if the football doesn’t work out for Arshavin then maybe the Last Shadow Puppets can take him on.
