6 September 2014. A Picture IS Worth a Thousand Words… Belgrade Red Star Fans Show Support for DNR at New Spartak Stadium in Moscow

For us, the Motherland is our precious home!


The first match at the new pitch for FK Spartak Moskva was a “friendly” between them and FK Red Star Belgrade. The Red Star backers are always welcome in Moscow… they’re real bros to the Russian people and they aren’t yobbos the way some of the Western fans are (although the English fans were on their best behaviour a few years back when Man United played in Moscow). The Red Star supporters showed a real sense of brotherhood with our suffering compatriots in Novorossiya. Look at the above images… a picture IS worth a thousand words.

Recently, in Mukačevo, Russian Orthodox priests formed a team that played a footy match with Jewish rabbis. The Priests won! No word on whether there’s going to be a rematch…

Now, that was some news that I ENJOYED reporting! If only all of it were the same!

Many Western media outlets trumpeted the idiosyncratic vapourings of an Orthodox priest against football. Wanna know what the REAL Church thinks? Well, look at the above images and read the article below. Look at the good trees… look at the bad trees… ain’t nothing in common between the two, is there?  Realise that you can take ANYTHING too far… including religion!  Think on that one…

By the way… V A Chaplin is a big-time footy fan… I thought that you’d like to know that (no, I don’t know which side he backs… as for me, like all decent human beings, I back FK Lokomotiv Moskva, the mighty red n’ green Parovozy).



There was a youth football tournament between teams from rural parishes in Bar Raion. The Youth Department of the Bar Deanery organised the event. Fr Vladimir Katerinchak, the head of the Raion Department, noted that the purpose of the competition was to promote healthy physical and spiritual habits amongst young people. On 3 July, the first match pitted teams from Karyshkov and Garmaki. Before the game, the participants took part in prayers at St John the Theologian church in Garmaki. Archpriest Oleg Lavrentyuk, director of catechesis and religious education, served a molieben, after which he spoke about the role of God and the Church in the modern world, especially, as it applied to the lives of young people. The youth team from Garmaki won the first match, which was at the local pitch. The senior team match ended with in a draw. Everyone played well, including the local priests. Similar games will occur between youth teams from Bar deanery parishes throughout the summer holidays. The final match will be at the Bar Raion Stadium.
