Sochaux Preview

Coach: Olivier Echouafni Stadium: Stade Bonal Last Season: 10th in Ligue 2 DEFENCE Sochaux have lost GK Yohann Pele to OM which is a blow because he was quite impressive last season. Replacing him is Olivier Werner who comes in from Belgian side Cercle Bruges. I have little idea if he’s any good but considering the level he was playing at, you’d […]

Red Star FC: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Red Star Preview

Coach: Rui Almeida Stadium: Stade Pierre Brisson Last Season: Champions of National DEFENCE Red Star actually have a couple of proven keepers at Ligue 2 level. In fact, the no1 starter Vincent Plante even has a number of Ligue 1 matches under his belt. They should be well set in between the sticks with ex-Laval man Arnaud Balijon backing him up. The […]

Paris FC: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

PFC preview

Coach: Denis Renaud Stadium: Stade Charlety Last Season: 2nd in National DEFENCE Paris FC have made a great signing recently by securing the services of Alexis Thebaux. The ex-Brest man is one of the best custodians at this level and is proven quality. Vincent de Marconney was the starting keeper last season but he’ll almost certainly be sat on the bench this year. […]

Niort Preview

Coach: Regis Brouard Stadium: Stade René Gaillard Last Season: 11th in Ligue 2 DEFENCE Niort have one of the best GKs in Ligue 2.

Nimes Preview

Coach: Jose Pasqualetti Stadium: Stade Des Costiéres Last Season: 13th in Ligue 2 DEFENCE Young custodian Mathieu Michel actually had a fairly good season last year and looks set to have a promising future.

AS Nancy: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Nancy Preview

Coach: Pablo Correa Stadium: Stade Marcel Picot Last Season: 5th in Ligue 2 DEFENCE Nancy had a bit of a goalkeeping merry-go-round last season. Paul Nardi was sold to Monaco but loaned back for a year. However, he seemed to regress and was eventually dropped. Guy Rolland Ndy Assembe took over, although it’s unclear if he’ll be part of the squad this year […]

FC Metz: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Metz Preview

Coach: Jose Riga Stadium: Stade Saint-Symphorien Last Season: 19th in Ligue 1 DEFENCE At the moment, Metz have custodian issues. Johann Carrasso is technically still one of their players but has been told to find another club, the same with Anthony M’Fa. So that means either David Oberhauser or youngster Thomas Didillon will be starting in between the sticks. The former isn’t […]

RC Lens: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

RC Lens Preview

Coach: Antoine Kombouare Stadium: Stade Felix Bollaert-Delelis Last Season: 20th in Ligue 1 DEFENCE The no1 keeper for Lens this year will be Joris Delle. The ex-Metz and Nice man did once look set to have a promising future, but has regressed in recent years. Injuries haven’t helped so he’ll hope to have a clean bill of health this term. Delle should […]
