Host Thomas Giles is joined by usual guests Toke Theilade and Andrew Flint to discuss the recent suspension of matches at FC Rostov and Rubin Kazan as a result of their poor pitches following the uproar surrounding the issue in Rostov’s Europa League clash against Manchester United.
They then talk about the financial chaos at Tom Tomsk and question whether allowing them to continue in the Russian Premier League undermines the competition.
Finally, Aleksandr Kokorin is back in the negative headlines following driving offences and so the panel ask whether Kokorin will ever mature as either a footballer or person.

Studied Russian at University which peaked my interest in the country and led to me living there for two years. Having already been a big football fan in England, I started following the Russian league and the chaos that goes with it during my time there. Whilst I am the first to admit that the action on the pitch is far from exciting, I find the politics and history of Russian football fascinating.
