You're doing an amazing job to keep pace with Zenit, keep it going :)
Justice96: I think one of my upcoming games is against Zenit.. Yeah, 3 more games and then the big one, and it may have a big update. :P
Great job so far, keep it up :)
Blue: Thank you, I try. ^_^
Great updates mate. I want to sign Navas in my story myself. His wages don't let me though! He's 31 and still performing at Kazan!
PaukerJ: Thanks, and he's a beast. I didn't even know who he was, I didn't think he'd be anything special, but boy was I wrong. I'll be signing him on most saves I do now.. :P

Halilovic To Sign For Kazan

Andrei Kanchelskis has announced a future signing. 16 year old Alen Halilovic will sign from Dinamo for a fee of £1 million. Halilovic will join in June 2014, and recieve £14.75k a week.

Halilovic, even as a 16 year old, has a national reputation and is already tipped to be a legend for club and country. The croatian is said to be thrilled at the chance to sign for such a strong side.

In 2012, Alen broke the record for the youngest player to ever appear in a Europa League game, aged just 16 years and 66 days.

Not a bad end to the month, but not exactly great. Another cup win is good, and I was able to rest a few players and still get a result. However, the squad currently don't have much depth, meaning resting players can be hard with injuries. Unfortunately, the first loss came for the club, but against a top team. We can still easily win the title, and I have high hopes for it.

Player of the Month:


Ivan Marcano had a solid month, having some great defensive performances, and even grabbing a goal in a key game for the club, making him a big player, even in a tough month for the side. Cesar Navas took another place in the top three grabbing second, followed by Oleg Kuzmin in third. Yeah, defenders took them all this month!
Good signing, but the loss to Zenit must have hurt. Don't worry, you'll recover :)
Blue: I hope he can perform, but Im wanting him to develop a bit more until then. The loss hurt for sure, but it's not too bad. There are only 1 point ahead in the league, and we played well, while missing some key players. Anyway, we beat them in the Super Cup and we'll beat them next time! :P

Arndt: Tore Not Played Enough

Christian Arndt, agent of Gokhan Tore has criticised Andrei Kanchelskis for his involvement of his player within the squad for the 2012/13 season. Gokhan Tore, currently 20, has featured just five times for the club this year, but is yet to play in the league, with four of his five performances being in pre-season.

Arndt, who is known for being the agent to stars such as Gundogan, Schurrle and Holtby, slated the Russian manager, saying:

Gokhan Tore is an exceptional talent. Everyone can see that. Why Kanchelskis is playing players such as Eremenko and Orbaiz over him I have no idea. Tore is an exceptional player, and the comparisons to Arda Turan are shit. Turan is shit. Tore is world class. I hope to see him feature more in the team, or a transfer crisis could unfold.

Andrei, Gokhans manager, is yet to comment on this situation, but it is unlikely he will react to the situation and will keep playing his current, favourite squad.
