Pupil of the Resurrection Children’s and Youth Sports School, forward Stanislav Timakov

spends his seventh season in his own yellow and blue jersey of the club. But if earlier the talented striker was one of the many in the team’s team, now the “super-close ambitions” of the Moscow region squad largely depend on him. After the games in Nizhny Novgorod, the leading player of “Khimik” answered the questions of our site’s observer. “>

“>

– The result, shown by “Chemist” on the banks of the Volga, hardly pleased the fans of the team. In this regard, I would like to ask you the following: Is Torpedo really stronger at this stage than your club?

– I didn’t see much difference in the class, but if we take the team game as a whole, then the Volzhans are still superior to us. In the first meeting we were broken by two quick goals, and we were no longer able to properly rebuild during the match. The second game was played in a completely equal fight, and if luck smiled at Chemist … However, one should not argue in the subjunctive mood. Once we conceded, it means on business. “>

“>

– In what components of hockey did the Nizhny Novgorod team surpass Khimik?
“>

“>

– In team movement and the realization of moments. Plus we had quite a few unnecessary deletions that were clearly not conducive to success. Yes, and missing two goals in the majority is an unaffordable luxury for meetings of this level. “>

“>

– Due to the fact that the match had no tournament background, can we say that the games were to some extent of a training nature?

– In no case! If no one needed anything, then there would be duplicate teams on the ice. And this is how the dress rehearsal turned out on the eve of the final of the playoffs. I have no doubt that in the main series of the year we will face off against Nizhny Novgorod. “>

“>

– Who do you remember most in the ranks of your opponent?
“>

– Sergey Zhurikov. He acted personally against me, and literally did not give a breath. And from the players of my role I will single out Mikhail Varnakov, Konstantin Shafranov, Vadim Pokotilo and Dmitry Altarev. Very skilled strikers.

“>

– You yourself could have moved to Torpedo two years ago. What then did not work out for you?

– Family circumstances intervened. In addition, the offer then received from Vityaz was practically no different from the Volga version. “>

– You played the beginning of this season in the Super League, in Amur. How different is the level of the top and second ranked divisions?
“>

– Heaven and earth. If in the Super League, passing and high-speed play are held in high esteem, then viscous and monotonous hockey prevails in the “tower”, which clearly does not contribute to the entertainment of matches. Yes, there is a lot of struggle, dedication, but the average level of skill is an order of magnitude inferior to its “older brother”.

“>

– Then why, on your own initiative, did you leave the Far East, where the club infrastructure is worthy of the highest epithets?

– Firstly, because of the crazy flights. No matter how hard I tried, I could not adapt to this way of life. Secondly, my second child was born, and it was very difficult for me to endure separation from loved ones. These two circumstances forced me to leave the Khabarovsk club, in which I seemed to be doing well. “>

“>

– What do you know about the teams from the East, with which Khimik will have to compete in the playoffs?

– Until the coaching staff introduced us to potential rivals. But I think the level of play in the East is lower than in our conference. I am sure that “Chemist” is able to pass any opponent from another zone. “>

– You spend the tenth season in big hockey. Which of this time period is the most memorable?
“>

– Twice I was directly involved in the teams entering the Super League. First with his own “Chemist”, and two years later with “Vityaz”. I also remember the battles of the Super League, in which, at times, I managed to please the audience with a spectacular game. Well, it’s a sin to complain about partners. Performing in the same flight with Alexey Zhamnov, Roman Oksyuta and Sergei Korolev, you clearly understand what else you can strive for in hockey. Serious school. “>

– The Resurrection edition of 1979 was very prolific. Those of your youth team partners Sergei Morozov, Alexander Popov and Evgeny Pasternatsky were initially highly rated at their age. Why did none of them realize themselves like that at a higher level?
“>

– It’s hard for me to speak for others (pause) … Everyone has their own destiny. In the mid-90s, this “trio” was regularly called up to the youth teams, while unhooking me. You can say that I was then in the background. But due to my character, anger and my goal, at some stage I bypassed them, and managed to gain a foothold in the Khimik team. “>

– Is “Chemist” able to return to the Super League at the end of this season?
“>

– Without a doubt.

“>

“>

– You yourself could have moved to Torpedo two years ago. What then did not work out for you?
