It’s a bumper pod this week as the gang’s back together – Kris is nursing a back injury but is ploughing through with Jez, Rich and Phil to discuss all the Ligue 1 happenings, PSG squad choice, Monaco jitters, whether Ligue 1 is crap, France, Didier Deschamps, the Women’s Champions League, and why we are all here in the first place.

Le50 2017 – Adam Ounas

Ounas GDB

Ligue 1 followers will be well aware by now that it is a league littered with young, ambitious and naturally gifted raw diamonds destined to be stars. Those three descriptions perfectly fit 20-year-old midfielder Adam Ounas. Despite talents such as Lyon’s Nabil Fekir and Nantes’ Amine Harit grabbing the headlines, Ounas – a product of the fabled Bordeaux academy – […]

Le50 2017 – Valentín Vada

Vada GDB

Bordeaux’s ambitious Proyecto Crecer, an academy system located in Argentina, has, to date, yielded little in the way of concrete results. Emiliano Sala was a product of the programme, but never made much of an impact with Bordeaux, eventually being sold to Nantes after various loan spells. The project, a joint venture between Newell’s Old Boys and the French side, […]

Crivelli SCB

Bastia finished the season bottom of the league, and joint-lowest scorers with only 29 goals – but they had on-loan striker Enzo Crivelli to thank for ten of them.

Le50 2017 – François Kamano

Kamano GDB

As an admirer of French Football, it can be tiresome batting off the constant ‘defensive’ tag that is applied, which is why when a pacy, direct and skilful player such as Bordeaux newcomer Francois Kamano is an instant success, it gives one reason to smile. Aged 18 at the time, Kamano made his Bastia debut against Marseille in 2014,and despite […]

Coupe de France Quarter-Final : Angers SCO v GD Bordeaux

Laborde CDF

While the other quarter-finals involve combinations of minnows and the top two, this rerun of last year’s round of 32 match which Bordeaux won 2-1 should be one of the closer encounters of the round. The league fixtures have been pretty tight, Angers winning 1-0 in Bordeaux in game 5, and getting a 1-1 draw at home, while in the […]

Coupe De France 8emes – Tuesday – CA Bastia v Angers, Frejus v Auxerre, Bordeaux v Lorient

Tuesday CDF

The round of sixteen crashes into view with some interesting fixtures but also not the draw we might have hoped for, as the minnows are all at home against higher opposition. However, with several of the higher-ups in a slightly awkward situation league-wise, there could still be some upsets in store. Today there are three fixtures, including a couple of minnows facing […]
