Very warm, about Beskov-coach spoke in his book "Football through the years," founder of "Spartacus," the legendary Nikolai Petrovich Starostin:

"... It soon became clear that Beskov unusually corresponds exactly to the role he would play in a dilapidated" Spartacus. " He's one of those coaches who know what they want, and consistently go to the target. Goal - to return the "Spartacus" to the big leagues - for him and was passing and passing, for granted. <...> Beskov from the beginning planned to build a team that could get a leading role. His favorite expression: "It requires a football tomorrow." And finally, Beskov has a taste for the pursuits of young, faith in them.

Spartak, of course, needed new players. Where to find them? "Interception" of some of the famous? This was a fundamental issue for us. I think if we smalodushnichali and began chasing the names of "Spartacus," which he began two years later, we would not create "- Nikolai Petrovich Starostin wrote.

Thanks to the coaching instinct Konstantin Ivanovich Beskov in that, in consequence of stellar team there are players such as Georgi Yartsev, Rinat Dasaev, Sergei Shavlo, Yuri Gavrilov, Vagiz Hidiyatullin, Oleg Romantsev ....

The next year, which was unfortunate for Metallurg, they again beat Spartak - 5:3. Beskov scored in that meeting three goals while playing against his own Andrei Starostin.

Arkad'ev learn that Constantine, border troops, yet the fall of 1940 began to act to transfer him to Moscow, with the intention to take part in the Moscow Dynamo. And, he got his way - cropped cropped soldier Beskov arrived to collect the Moscow Dynamo in Gagra. Its partners are: Mikhail Yakushin, Sergey Ilyin, Mikhail Sevenfold, Alexei Lapshin, Evgeny Eliseev, Leo Korchebokov, Sergei Solovyov, Arkady Chernyshev! Whatever the name, the outstanding personality in the sport.

A reporter for the Daily Mail readers and gave players a sensation: "Today the Soviet Dynamo break on vodka and caviar. Tacit Soviet players would drink a wild, monotonous sound of the balalaika and shouting" Hurrah! "And other words expressing enthusiasm."

However, Moscow's players gave a real fight the British "Grand", won a series of meetings with a total score of 19:9. Among the teams were defeated Welsh Cardiff City "(the fastest team in Britain), the famous Arsenal and Chelsea and Glasgow Rangers" failed to level the score. Two wins and two draws - like this was the opening of Russian football Mecca. Beskov contribution to this victory - 5 goals and 4 assists.

About Beskov players Starostin said: "During the reign of Gregory Fedotov Viceroy r utbolnyh fields could rightly be called Constantine Beskov. He was less endowed by nature than Fedotov, but its high football education and culture allowed him to stand in one row with the first of the first on the football Olympus. Beskov game was built on a thin calculating and brilliant technique. "
