My CSKA Moscow 2011/12 Shirt

IT COME TODAY! :mrgreen:

The story goes like this…..

OK, so if you read my blog you will know that one thing I love is to get things which are exclusive or hard to come by, and one thing I have wanted for a long time is a CSKA Moscow shirt. I searched every online retailer, I asked Reebok UK, Reebok RU and asked others to see if they could help me find this shirt. I went to football websites which stock shirts from round the world, and nobody has anything which was CSKA. Many stores sell Zenit and Spartak shirts, but for some reason unknown to me nobody sells CSKA.

They came 2nd in their league last year, and so are even in the Champions League this season, and have some international stars like Honda, Vagner Love, Mark Gonzalez and more, so I thought that this season it might be easier to get a shirt, and nope, it was not.

Then I found a place, a Russian website completely in Russian Cyrillic, they had 1 page in English describing how to order and that they shipped to England, so I took the plunge and bought a shirt.

It took around 2 weeks to come, and cost over 5,000 Rubles, I worked out that was around £100 and checked my bank statement and yeah, it was £106. The shirt was only about 2900 Rubles, but printing made it around 3300 rubles and the rest was shipping…The shipping was actually around £30 if you need a reference.

But all that aside it came, and I love it 😛

So many sponsors on the front! This is such an authentic shirt, all the Spartak ones I have seen UK retailers selling are “unsponsored” versions.

 

Cyrillic writing on the back 😛 It says “Dzagoev” and amazingly he scored against Inter on Tuesday, but CSKA sadly lost 3-2 🙁 They use Cyrillic writing in their domestic games and English/latin style text in Europe.

I am glad I got this seasons shirt, I think it is better than last, so I am glad in a way that it took so long to find it 😀

I might get the away shirt too 😉
