Hi. Welcome to Beyond the Iron Curtain, a blog where I will talk about the goings on of Eastern European football, from matches to transfer rumours to historical events and everything in between. My main focus will be on Russia, Ukraine and Turkey, but I will also feature the football of other nations, including Croatia, Serbia and the Czech Republic among others. Feel free to leave your opinions in the comments, but please keep it clean and free of any potentially inappropriate discussion. And above all, enjoy!
