And here is the new Russia thread!

Since we are rapidly approaching the end of the season I chose this title.

If he is on IPS, it means that he is open to a partner from another country. I don't see the Russian Fed release him easilly. Russia has so many talented girls right now and some of them could switch to pairs.

I want to quote kwanfan1818's post from the last thread because she made a very good point:


One of the things his students say about Morozov is how he gives them confidence. I can't remember him bad-mouthing his students, or having unrealistic expectations for them and taking it personally when they have weak performances (see Dan Hollander's manleywoman skatecast).

It's easy to ignore big picture and political issues in general -- racism, working for the Stasi, cheating on his women -- when what they see day to day is different. I suspect Morozov is Clinton-esque, and people who speak to him when he's sober feel like they are the center of the universe.

This is why Morozov is such a successful coach, I believe.

He makes his students confident and they become more consistent.

Yes he is a total jerk in some aspects, but if you don't discuss the "character" of Japanese people with him (which I imagine is not something you really do with your coach, if at all) and don't fornicate with him (well that's one problem area :P), you actually get loads from him as a coach (note: I don't mean that kind of loads this time :P).

Make sure he doesn't fancy you before enrolling his services, I guess? :P

Easier said then done, I suppose. :shuffle:
As much as I dislike Morozov, there's no denying that he usually gets good results and thus I can't fault skaters for wanting to be coached by him.
What I cannot understand is why his programmes are marked the way they are by the judges. I don't like most of Nichol's work but at least I can usually see that most of the ISU bullets for CH/TR are checked...the love Morozov is getting from judges is confusing.

i dont like some programs, but i think he really did great jobs. mikis 'memoirs of a geisha' and 'the mission' short programs were really great. especially the 2009 was absolutely great, dont understand some 'bad comments' about her short program last year.
miki had great exhibition numbers of him too; and shes the best example how he could affect a skater. look at miki 2004, 2007 and now.
even at her first world title (although i am/was a big fan of her) she wa sfar beyond from where she is now. she really becomes an artistic skater, great performances and interpretations.

in ice dance and pairs skating its different. most of the programs are lacking of something and often not suited well to the skaters.
