Without beer and Europe.  Replica Yaremenko


A very strange spectacle (more precisely, a reading room) has happened in the last two days. A snowball was rolling down through all sports media and channels, gaining speed and mass: we went to UEFA for negotiations! Wow, the moment when we will be forgiven is getting closer! Well, it means, rightly, that we stayed in Europe and did not go to Asia – not far off is our reintegration to where, it seemed, we were expelled for many years.

We went to the negotiations and away we go: oh, they are again for their own! They extended our suspension again! Why give me hope?

And you, excuse me, what did you expect, dear? What has changed in the year since the first “ban”? Hope is actually an ephemeral thing, you can’t touch it with your hands. “Your expectations are your problems,” as one petty St. Petersburg intriguer aptly said on a completely different occasion.

We turned to UEFA with a request for a meeting – they met. How should it have been? Curtain and hide? Or do something else – well, there … deprive the championship of the certificate, forbid foreigners to play in it, cancel the friendly matches of the national team forever?

No, European football officials behave quite loyally and according to the regulations. There is nothing to forgive yet, which we were directly told about. Then what, brother, are we making noise about?


I have a beloved girl from the State Duma. Like many who are interested in sports, I guess. Her name is Svetlana Zhurova. Was not a celestial until 35 years old. But at her last Olympics in Turin in 2006, where most people no longer believed in her, she gave out a fantastic run at five hundred and won her only Olympic medal. She was 35 – more than today, comrade Dzyuba, a worldly veteran of sports.

There was not so much enchanting for us: after the first major doping scandals that overtook Russia in Salt Lake City four years earlier, there was a catastrophic story with Olga Pyleva, who was forced to secretly leave Italy under the cover of night, because there doping – it is a serious criminal offence. And in the midst of those jambs was that great victory. Real athletes are different in that they do not see obstacles – they set a goal and go towards it. Through I can’t, through clenching my teeth, through enduring and overcoming.

That victory was a great investment in the future – then the athlete was already led up the steps of the career ladder. I love Svetlana very much, to be honest, she is a very cheerful and good friend, I personally have never done any meanness. But in the Duma there were no longer overcoming through-I can’t – there are other laws.

Alas, there is no law on what to forbid deputies to speak. Alas, they, logically, do not know anything else. And therefore they actively comment on exactly everything that comes to hand.

So Smolov and Mamaev took up their minds, decided to stop spending the money that is easily generated around them and invest in a football academy in Dubai. A considerable number of our compatriots live in these expensive visa-free regions, so there will definitely be demand – a valid investment! But Svetlana Zhurova strikes a crushing blow at the initiative of these comrades:

– I have only one question: if they do it for their own money, then it is more correct to do it in Russia after all. Who raised them when they were children? Therefore, it is more correct to spend on our children. Reminds that they simply fled from mobilization.

In this text absolutely everything is luxurious. It’s hard to even argue. Talk about what parents and family bring up, and not the territory where you are? Or that business investments exist in order to bring maximum profit later? This is clear to everyone. Well, except for the deputies, of course.


Deputies are specific people. They are clearly being pollinated there in Okhotny Ryad. It is impossible to pick up such specimens one by one so that they all converge one to one.

Before you have time to digest the next statements about Smolov and Mamaev from Mrs. Zhurova, a new phenomenon immediately grows on this pesticide bed.

Svezhak arrived in time: the deputies propose to allow the placement of beer advertising on the facades of sports facilities. That is, while everyone is waiting for the long-promised return of beer to stadiums (one of the foundations for the well-being of sports clubs and leagues around the world), our deputies are bringing their know-how. Let’s, say, first draw beer on the podium. As they already joke in the channels, if there are no riots, let’s think about real beer.

Is it like the old joke? Learn to serve – pour water into the pool?
