Sergei Semak, the captain of the "Rubin":
— Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the natural fields, which were opening match. It turns out that you can prepare the lawn of the necessary quality, even in our weather conditions.

Ruslan Ajinjal, Captain, "Wings of the Soviets":
— The most enjoyable in the first round was of excellent quality field in Pyatigorsk. But the unpleasant was that to prepare for the opening match with "the Tom" had on the artificial turf of Luzhniki, and then had to play on natural soil, which is usually risky. Fortunately, this time there were no injuries.

Our team has touched the way the episodes were treated exactly the same. Whenever sympathies were given to our opponents.

However, he ended up with the most likely outcome.

As for the candidates, these people play in "Zenith" and CSKA Moscow, but strong players with the potential to be the first to dispute the equal and worthy, is in "Spartacus" and "Locomotive".

[B] 6. Who will be the top scorer of the Premier League? [/ B]
Semak: — We have a team has three forwards who can score goals. This Roman Adamov, Gekdeniz Karadeniz and Sasha Bukhari. If one of them won the argument, I would have regarded this event as a very expensive and nice gift. And as a competitor of my partners, it's Vagner Love.

[B] 7. Which team and which player will be the main findings of the season? [/ B]
Semak: — Hardly CSKA and my "Ruby" can qualify for these laurels, and so will highlight the number of other "Moscow." This team is a good coach, a strong line-up, has its own spectacular game. This team has a lot to spoil the mood and plans. I can not say a few words about "Spartacus." Finally, it seems to me among the fans of this team have good reason to hope for a breakthrough on that performance in the championship dreamed of by people who worry about the red and white.
Akinfeev: — It is difficult to answer, because none of the potential newcomers, but our Shchennikova in fact has ever seen. Of course, I would like to major discovery was the player of CSKA.

Berezovsky: — I can only say "Khimki": the open season may well be the Buffon, who has not played in the Premier League, leather, Cvetkovic.

[B] 9. Check out a visit to any of the Premier League club for you the most enjoyable and why? [/ B]
Semak: — It is a pity that the departed Vladivostok. I loved this trip. Beautiful, unusual city, sea, a step away from the arena, the stadium is full to capacity, experiencing both its own and for football. Now, this is not, and the Premier League will not run short of charm, which gave her "Ray." So we have to vote for Peter. Also a city with a twist, and the fans there are! I'm there now twice as nice to go — to the fellow who this winter became head of the team "Zenith". I own Radimova mean. I also love to come to Moscow, but it goes without saying — how many years spent there, and it's a good year …
Akinfeev: — [u] I am glad that the Premier League clubs have returned from Krasnodar and Rostov-on-Don. In these cities, a real football atmosphere in the stadiums, so play nice. [/ U]

KUSHEV: — I like to play in St. Petersburg, where the real football atmosphere, and in Moscow, too, and with any club.
Tymoshchuk: — From the atmosphere in the stadium and its infrastructure — the stadium "Locomotive". There's always a pleasure to play.

Bilyaletdinov: — [u] I like trips to the southern teams — in Rostov [/ u] and Krasnodar. [U] There's always a good field and weather. [/ U]
Yiranek: — Drive to Cherkizovo for the match with the "locomotive". Beautiful stadium, where our games often are not empty seats.
Zhevnov: — Always nice to go to St. Petersburg. There are constantly going full stadium and play in such a situation — a pleasure. Even though the stands are ill against your team.
Jabrayilov: — In Kazan, where we won last year. All of which elevate mood.
Dzhudovich: — In St. Petersburg in connection with a good atmosphere in the stadium.
Klimov: — St. Petersburg.
Berezovsky — now good conditions for football in any city, let alone in the mid 90s. And come to visit most like to go where he played before — to the "Zenith" and the Moscow "Dynamo".
[B] aspen: [/ b] — Probably, "Kuban". Still derby. It is a pity that not every year is adjusted to meet them.
Topcu: — I have a lot of friends in Moscow, and I'm always happy to go there I go. If we talk about the club, it's FC "Moskva", where I played before.
[B] 10. At what an extraordinary act you would be willing, if your team at the start of the season won five straight wins? [/ B]
Semak: — Five — nothing! We have it already was. Now, if we repeat his last year's record, or update it, I am ready for any act within reason. If only it did not affect my family and my safety and my family.
Akinfeev: — We do not think about the extraordinary deeds, and set a goal to win all the matches in which he took part.
Khokhlov: — At any act within reason. Usually promise to shave, but I do not have a mustache and trimmed and so short. I can in the case of five wins in a row to cut "at zero" any of the long-haired teammates.
KUSHEV: -'d shaved off his hair.
Tymoshchuk: — I always try a balanced approach to every situation and his actions.
Ajinjal: — Cover with a beautiful table and invite the whole team.
Bilyaletdinov: — I do not know. Stumped issue. But if this would have happened, the boys would probably come up with something unusual.
Yiranek: — Invited to all the guys on the mug of good beer in the Czech House in Moscow.
Zhevnov: — Shaved today is not so extraordinary … Unfashionable. Then, perhaps, might have sent a mustache. Small. Unfortunately, we've already lost.
Jabrayilov: — After the fifth victory in a row ready right on the dance Lezghinka.
Dzhudovich: — Let go and would not shave his beard until the end of her winning streak.
Klimov: — I once was willing to do anything, but we unfortunately lost, "Wings."
Berezovsky: — For a start would be willing to deal, but rather confined to the promise of a haircut bald.
[B] aspen: [/ b] — The first match we have reduced to a draw. If we win the next five — ready for anything!
Topcu: — Went to the center of the field at the stadium, "Kuban" in front of the stands filled and danced to Lezghinka.
[I] Captain "Saturn" Alexei Igonin did not take part in our traditional questionnaire, referring to the disposal of the General Director of the club. [/ I]
