Summary

Part two of two. Frankie Boyle meets Russia's leading football historian in St Petersburg, and has a look round his collection of memorabilia. He attends a Spartak Moscow match in a corporate box, and considers how a team with proud proletarian roots has lost touch with its heritage. He also discovers that street footballers in Russia are able to make ends meet by selling their skills to advertisers, and ventures to a town where locals play a dangerous high-speed version of football on motorbikes.
