Just started the Winter Break, and as most of you know, part of my family is from Russia (Yaroslavl), so I try to stream as many games as possible. 

Here is the current table -

I'm surprised about how well they have done this year. I do think Spartak is still the most talented team in the country, but too many late game debacles have left with leaving much needed points on the table.

Do you follow any team in particular, @Eco?

Spartak. 

Shinnik Yaroslavl are where the fam is from (and still have an apartment there), however they are in the second division and almost impossible to follow outside of Russia.

Working man's club they are. 

Dinamo are secret police

CSKA are military police

Spartak are for the blue collar workers.

I know haha, that's why I said that. Lokomotiv used to be Ministry of Transportation, better than the other two, but still a part of apparatus.

Ah - I'm not sure how much people know about the teams in Moscow. I should have known that you knew it. :D

Same as. I started following them during their cup winners cup run of 1992/93. I believe that was the season. If I remember correctly Royal Antwerp knocked them out and then lost to Parma in the final.

That was before I started following the sport ( I was 8-9 years old). 

Oh by the way, are you able to add Team Logos? If so, could you add the Spartak one for me?

Of course. I’ll take a gander.

I actually attempt to keep up with CSKA and what they are doing, I've slacked a little bit in the past few years since they dropped Elm though. Im actually a little surprised Zenit are still holding onto second right now.

I know this is a wind up but he was never good. I was curious as to why Leicester signed him in the first place as champions. I always thought that he was overrated by FIFA and FM.

Slight hint of elbow there to keep it out sort of ruined it for me a bit...
