The Bluest Skies - A Season Preveiw Here we are another season and a new league. We are your English outlet for Russia's best football team The Sky Blues of Zenit St. Petersburg. With a strong season finishing second in League 1 the team earned the right to play with the big boys in the Premier League. They've been tipped as a team that should stave off relegation safe enough and possibly make a run, this is new territory for the eastern European team who seemed to not get noticed until they made the quarter finals of the Champions League last year. Will they play with the same fight as when they had that chip on their shoulder? Only time will tell but the preseason hasn't shown the best results so far. Scoring just 2 goals they have a loss and a draw to show for their two tune up games. Manager Dylema doesn't think this a problem because in the second game they we're out possessing the opponent 65-35 and we're showing the slick passing game that lead them to be one of the top teams in League 1 last year. Once they find there goal scoring edge they will be back to the dangerous team they know they can be. The Sky Blues aren't looking for much, avoiding the relegation battle and making the group stage of the Champions league or the semi's of the Europa league. Only time will tell if they can achieve this goal but Zenit have shown that they can compete with anybody.
