Cooking with Gaz!

Here’s a shocking development: Zenit St Petersburg is favored to lead the way in the Russian championship this season.

The government is run by Vladimir Putin, who is from the old imperial capital and, odds are, is a Zenit supporter if he supports anyone.

And to think American soccer fans complain about how MLS operates.
