Report 20twenty league match report thread in Custom Game Worlds Posted May 25, 2009 Re: 20twenty league match report thread Zenit hanging in there despite tough times.. Zenit were able to put off-field problems to waste overnight as they were able to pick up a thrilling 3-3 draw with AS Roma in front of almost 83,000 people at the Stadio Olimpico in Italy overnight. The russian side have been ravaged by injuries and overnight they picked up a further 2 injuries, the worst of all, influential captain, Anatoliy Tymoschuk, injured for 8 weeks, yes, thats right.. 8 weeks, with a broken hand. Javier Saviola was also a big name casualty after he suffered a head injury early on after a horrifyingly high tackle from diego godin. Elano was the matchsaver in the end for Roma after the Brazilian scored all 3 goals for the italian giants, subsequently being given the match ball. Zenit will be feeling very hard done by, because they had snatched the lead thanks to a Radamel Falcao strike just 8 minutes from time. They were left heartbroken, battered and bruised just 4 minutes later though, when Elano struck to complete his hattrick. AS Roma 3 Zenit 3 I feel very hard done by, We played our hearts out today and it still wasnt enough. I came face to face today with one of the most respected managers in the game, and We really should have taken all three points. Im disappointed because we are going to have to sell Pogrebnyak, which im not pleased with. We are averaging a 700k loss each game including the games at home. we lost about 800k in the match with Roma, and with the injuries piling up aswell, i really dont know what is happening. Were in a rott at the moment, however having not lost in 4 matches is just about the only positive thing for us at the moment. Next up for Zenit is the tricky home tie with league leader and league owner Naths Chelsea, looking to put in a more respectable showing than the one that they displayed in the first game of the season, a shocking 6-1 thumping at the bridge.
