Evian Thonon Gaillard: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Evian Preview

Coach: Safet Susic Stadium: Parc des Sports D’Annecy Last Season: 18th in Ligue 1 DEFENCE It’s unclear if Dane Jesper Hansen will stay at the club. He probably won’t but it doesn’t matter because Benjamin Leroy will be a more than satisfactory no1 keeper at this level. The backline contains some quality but really lacks depth. The starting back four […]

Dijon FCO: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Dijon Preview

Coach: Olivier Dall’Oglio Stadium: Stade Gaston Gérard Last Season: 4th in Ligue 2 DEFENCE DFCO have a very strong goalkeeper in Baptiste Reynet, who is arguably one of the best in the ligue. Backing him up are Enzo Basilo and Christopher Dillo, who has recently signed from Rennes. The backline has to be classed as weaker compared to last season. They have lost […]

US Créteil-Lusitanos: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Creteil Preview

Coach: Thierry Froger Stadium: Stade Dominique Duvauchelle Last Season: 18th in Ligue 2 DEFENCE Creteil actually have a couple of good goalkeepers they can call upon. Yann Kerboriou will start the campaign as no1 choice, but Cyrille Merville is more than capable of putting some pressure on him. Merville used to be real quality, but his standards have slipped in recent years. […]

Clermont Foot: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Clermont Preview

Coach: Corinne Diacre Stadium: Stade Gabriel Montpied Last Season: 12th in Ligue 2   DEFENCE Clermont have three keepers to choose from, all of whom are fairly raw and inconsistent. I’d expect Mehdi Jeannin to start as the no1 keeper, either backed up by Franck L’Hostis (who has been a transfer flop) or new man from Monaco Marc Caillard. Neither […]

Bourg Peronnas: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Bourg Preview

Coach: Hervé Della Maggiore Stadium: Stade Jean-Laville Last Season: 3rd Championnat National   DEFENCE It’s been confirmed that Sebastian Callamand will be starting in between the sticks. Unproven at Ligue 2 level like most of his teammates, he could be pushed by Marseille loanee Julien Fabri. The coach prefers to employ a 3-5-2 formation which includes three CBs. Options here include […]

AJ Auxerre: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Aj Auxerre Preview

Coach: Jean-Luc Vannuchi Stadium: Stade Abbé Deschamps Last Season: 9th Ligue 2   DEFENCE Auxerre had goalkeeping issues last season. Donovan Leon didn’t perform as well as expected and he’s been given the boot. They have definitely upgraded by signing Zacharie Boucher from Toulouse, a fine young talent who is definitely worth the £350k they paid. Geoffrey Lembet is an able backup […]

AC Ajaccio: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

AC Ajaccio

Coach: Olivier Pantaloni Stadium: Stade Francois Coty Last Season: 17th in Ligue 2 DEFENCE Goalkeeper is a problem area for ACA. They have lost Oumar Sissoko (which might not be a bad thing because he struggled last season), but his replacement looks set to be Riffi Mandanda – the younger brother of OM’s Steve – and Riffi has yet to produce […]
