OUT:

Henry
Gallas
Govou

Most of the work is done with Domenech NOT being there, the players are certainly there. You just watch France become brilliant again now that they're in Bosnia's ECQ group .

i think also that he will impose gourcuff as the playmaker.

You would think so as he was his key man at Bordeaux, he knows him well.

The Gourcuff of 08/09 was brilliant, where is he?

***Not that I'm complaining too much as an OM sympathiser .

Certainly did, that's why the Girondins couldn't win a game for 2 months almost.

and that is the reason why i'm interrogative about laurent blanc managing. maybe he didn't rest gourcuff enough, he asked him too much.

He will certainly get a central defense working well. That's the least i am awaiting from the classy defender he was.

What players that aren't in the WC squad do you expect to break through into the NT after the WC?

Of course. I should have been more specific as in what younger/unknown players...

e.g.

Sissoko
Rami
Cissokho
Ciani
Fanni
Briand
Remy
M'Vila

Shame he's broken through at such a late stage in his career.

I think they're all decent players. Could depend on which of the old guard leaves so some of them can come in.

Code:
Lloris Sagna ??? ??? Evra Diaby Gourcuff Briand Nasri Marveaux Benzema
Wild guess. Remember Gourcuff used to play much more defensive with Rennes at the beginning. He got skills to orientate the play. While Diaby brings the muscles. Marveaux got the touch and the abilities to delivers assists, while Briand brings his activity non stop. Even if he can not converts all. Still we desperately needs to find some good central defenders. But Laurent Blanc needs to start from the beginning with youngs players. We also needs players who are commited to the jersey, not only to theirs club. But that's more an overall subject for big nations... I fear a bit that this generation is just a bunch of spoiled childs.

What do you think of Rami as a CB?

I think Blanc has a great team to work with, a team that will play for him. This generation of French players coming through is great.

I've watched Ligue 1 and Blanc's team a lot, and I think Gourcuff is a certainty to start. Blanc built a lot of his team around him, and he delivered. I don't see any reason why he won't do the same again.
As for players Blanc will work with, don't be surprised to see the likes of Ciani and Tremoulinas (another quality LB) come into the team.

I think a team like this he will field.

Lloris
Sagna - Ciani - Planus/Rami - Evra
M.Sissoko - J.Toulalan
F.Ribery - Gourcuff - Nasri
Benzema

I think it will be between Rami and Planus to partner Ciani, I think Blanc might prefer his club player to start. I have no doubts Moussa Sissoko will dominate CM position for France for the next 10 years, he's easily a better player than Diaby. I think Malouda will start for Blanc's team, but I put Nasri ahead of him just in case Blanc goes all youth, which he won't though. Benzema will be the perfect Blanc type of striker.
