Valenciennes FC: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

VAFC preview

Coach: David le Frapper Stadium: Stade du Hainaut Last Season: 16th in Ligue 2 DEFENCE The GK spot was an issue for VA last season but they’ve rectified that by signing Damien Perquis from Caen. Truth be told, Perquis could be a ligue 1 keeper but Remi Vercoutre denied him that chance at Caen. It’s surprising he’s made the move back down […]

FC Tours: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

Tours Preview

Coach: Marco Simone Stadium: Stade de la Vallée du Cher Last Season: 15th in Ligue 2 DEFENCE Tours had huge goalkeeping problems last season. They ended up using three different starting custodians, eventually settling on youngster Bingoura Kamara. He was ok but inconsistent as you’d expect. They have signed Quentin Westberg from Norwegian club Sarpsborg as competition but he’s only average at […]

FC Sochaux: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

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. […]

Chamois Niortais: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

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. Paul Delecroix has been an extremely consistent performer for a couple of years now and it’s a surprise to me that a Ligue 1 team or a bigger L2 outfit haven’t made a move for him. His all-round […]

Nimes Olympique: 2015/16 Ligue 2 Preview

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. He should do a fairly good job for them in between the sticks. Nimes’ best defender is Fethi Harek, someone who has plenty of ligue 1 experience. Behind […]
