    At their first competition against each other this season (Finlandia), in the FS where both were pretty clean Liza got higher PCS. I'm not saying that Julia isn't going to get higher PCS, she definitely is. But it shows Liza is capable especially if she improves which she should with time.

    Yea, Julia's exposure has pretty much moved her past Tuktamysheva on the PCS scale at this point. It wouldn't be surprised if Tuk has to work herself up from Low-Mid 7s in PCS starting this season, and unless she is skating relatively consistently/cleanly, the judges will have very little reason to move her up.

    Tuk has probably a high mountain to climb back atop
    aside from her weight issue, she must reinvented her programs in the judge's eyes as to increase her 7s in PCS
    lay off from all black, tango, latin themes and most of all work on her skating skills and spins
    Mishin seems to not put efforts much in his ladies skaters

    at this point she is relegated to Rus No.5 or 6, this could change but right now
    no waycan she beat any of a clean Julia, Adelina, Anna or Elena
    even Sakhanovich or Sotskova can beat her

    I was one of her biggest fan,
    this isnt the same Tuk that I saw in 2011, sadly

    she needs to sow the consistency and results like Gracie or Julia have shown

    Did you just use Gracie and consistency in the same sentence?

    Hopefully she will look even better on ice in the upcoming season.

    I honestly don't think there is any chance Tukt will score higher than Julia PCS wise now. That was the first competition LAST season. Since then, Julia has majorly upped her exposure and (relative to her past glory days) Tukt has basically imploded over and over on competitive ice. Julia has the stronger reputation. I am not trying to be predictive in a long term sense- in a long term sense anything can happen (though certaint hings are more likely than others) but in a right now and for the rest of the 2014-2015 season, I am making a STRONG prediction that Liza's PCS are not going to be close to Julia's. In fact, unless Julia implodes this year, I do not think there is any chance of Tukt beating her. I think Julia with up to 2 major mistakes probably beats a clean Tukt UNLESS Tukt majorly improves her spins.

    For the reasons everyone stated, I simply want Liza to skate clean and rebuild her reputation with the judges. Not being able to beat a clean Yulia in the 2014-15 season isn't a reason to quit (by that logic, everyone except Adelina and Yulia herself should just quit. )

    But she's not bloooonnnd! (Liza is very distinct and that, imo, is part of her beauty. And I'm glad she didn't grow up stick-skinny--no offense to any super skinny girls, but Liza's features would look odd on someone that's way too thin.)

    Liza seems to have a lot of black outfits that are similar-looking, but she looks great nonetheless

    You mean like win an international event? Oh wait, Liza has already done that.

    FYI, Tukt came 4th and 4th in her two GP events last season. A 3rd and 4th isn't much better.
