  1. What a load of crap!

  2. Они все идиоты!

    Please do not judge all Russians by the standards of these knuckle-dragging cretins.

    Unacceptable.

    The Russian FA should suspend them from the league until further notice, and if they do not UEFA should very publicly suspend all teams governed by the Russian FA from all international competitions until further notice.

    1. Why should the team be suspended because of a racist fan club. When the club itself has written that it “does not uphold archaic views”.

      The fans should be identified and banned from football games for life, like football hooligans have in the past.

      1. Have been

  4. “The document claims African players have trouble adapting to Russia’s wintery climate.”

    But we’re not racist.

    I wear a warm coat myself when it’s cold.

    1. It’s more alarming that they think all black players come from Africa. I guess over a century of quite considerable global immigration/emigration to and from Africa have passed them by. Although it’s probably not surprising since they live in the middle ages. Better not let them know that white people are born in Africa as well. Their heads might explode.

      Samuel Eto’o gets paid £500,000 a week before tax at anzhi makhachkala . Im sure he’s adapting nicely

  5. Without gay or black players they will probably lose anyway.

    Hitler would have sent Turing to the gas chamber.

    “We want players closer to our soul and mentality to play for Zenit.”

    On a completely different subject, are Chelsea going to put John Terry up for transfer in the upcoming window?

  7. Oh. Dear. God.
    Anyone who starts a sentence with: “I am not a racist but…” really ought to smack themselves.

    But I like the reaction by the club. Particularly that they won’t uphold “archaic views”. That’s very nicely put! Well done them.

  8. Isn’t it likely that many people (not all) who are homo hysterics are also likely to be racist?. The difference being that they have to keep the racism under wraps more than they do the homo hysteria?

    Well in that case we don’t want Russians in Miami beach enjoying our beautiful sub tropical weather so get the f..k out here and freeze to death !!!!!

  10. Talk about dense!

  11. Obviously they can only play football in Siberia in the middle of winter. Twits.

  12. I’m really tired of all this. My only hope is that Myans were right… Because there’s no other way to make Putin go away!

      No, it’s just not convenient for the World to end Friday. Campaigning to have the date changed to suit!

    This is disgraceful.

    No place for this kind of attitude. It just pushes Russia back further and further into the Dark ages.

    Shameful.

  14. The challenging climate of barbarian Russia didn’t stop Alexander Pushkin. As a matter of fact his descendants are still with us, even connected to the British royal family.

    Mentioning Pushkin in interesting – he was part-African. Isn’t it time we thought of boycotting St. Petersburg in Particular and Russia in general? No sports contact, no holidaying in any part of the country, and as little in the way of commerce as can be managed?
