I haven't watched all of Rostelecom yet so I cannot catch up in this thread; but having made it through the men's event, I would just like to congratulate Aliev on having botched more significant footwork sequences in his career than possibly any other figure skater I can think of;).

I still had no time to watch men, but before I forget: Nugu! :encore:
This was not the best she skated all season; but based on recent injury and line-up, 5th place finish here is great 💪

I know I am biased here, but her lines and skills were absolutely superior in this field! :love:

Is it just me or are the music selections and choreography from Team Rukavicin this season not so great? Aliev is such a wonderful emotional skater, but that LP is so boilerplate and reminded me of an old Morisi program. :scream: He deserves better than that. Nugu's LP doesn't highlight her strengths and enhances her weaknesses. And while Ignatov's endurance actually seems improved, the LP is quite poor--worst version of Malade ever.

It all just seems so generic and it's not elevating the skaters at all. Particularly in contrast to the more inspired choreography/music (if not always tasteful) from team Mishin.

Do we need to arrange an intervention? ;)

She is lovely and skated quite well. I don’t care for this year’s FS much though, wish she would bring back the Nutcracker program or choose a different lyrical instrumental selection. She really shines with that kind of music.

#TeamRukavicin bad programs post
Totally agree here. I love Il Volo for Aliev, but just because I love schmaltz, but that program goes nowhere.
Nugu works best classic, as shown in SP, so I really don't get this 'modern' approach for her.

Tbh, I have a soft spot for Ignatov's JSM though. I love the final steps, just because he is wobbling around as he'd been an entire night in the bar of sunken dreams :40beers:

Off topic, but the posters in this thread know everything and have salacious instagram posts about it, what is going on with Tursy? since she trains with Eteri I thought she might be at Rostelecom.

I think she just got back on the ice very recently
