Starting eleven for the Euro ?

So after yesterday result we qualified to the Euro, what seeing our level is a very good achievement. We could get another group of death anyway...

Yesterday, Blanc had to make a new team, with all the injuries. But if everyone is fit what team do you see ?


Réveilleire Mexes Rami Abidal

M'Vila Martin

Malouda Nasri Ribéry


I know my defensive midfield is not that strengh and powerfull but i would really like to see us like a technical and able to keep the ball.

That's probably the Blanc's plans. Indeed, it's better to play with mids who doesn't loose the ball and uses it well than to have more "physical" ones who are, at the same time, not the ones in the better shape or just can't stand the pressure.
Then, an interrogation remains at the RB position as for Méxès. Only, I hope if Méxès is not operational that Abidal will be at LB and not CB.

+ me, I'd prefer Rémy to Ribéry: since he only want to play on the left: I'd prefer to have Malouda on the left, he who can defend and attack as well + Rémy supposly on the right (but moving): better than Ribéry + Malouda on the right. Moreover, when Ribéry plays, he demands all the balls and it results in a lack of diversity of movements, and so for few results as it's not Bundesliga but International level. So no Ribéry, like no Cantona or no Ginola in 96...

GK: Lloris
RB: Reveillère or Debuchy (I see Debuchy win his place but we will see)
CB (Stopper the most): Rami
CB (a bit more passer): Méxès? or not many solution...Sakho? who knows in some months...or a second stopper, Kaboul, he must fit better, I guess he can improve, it's of the responsability of Rami too.
LB: Abidal who is solid and it's not needed he goes too much forward. For his sub, I wonder, how does Cissokho right now?
CM N°6-8: M'Vila
CM N°8-10: Martin: he doesn't tackle but he defend well by his poistionning and above all, he almost never loose the ball and uses it (very) well. I think we're all ok on this now. Everybody knows he must play.
Main playmaker: Nasri, free role, axxis.
Left-mid/ Left Wing: Malouda: he equilibrates the team and he is an offensive weapon at the same time. There's only the assistance of Stade de France to whistle him.
Right Forward: Rémy: can have the play of a winger, can be served in the axxis, he has the speed. Everybody knows him now. He can also play on the left. Very mobile.
CF: Benzema: scorer, can also prepare the attacks and serve Rémy or another one. The best player.

I talk much but it's exciting, and that will be exciting, of course, to see how this team could improve. Yes, there's a huge potential.

So in gross, I agree with your point of view, with your team except for what concerns Ribéry. Imo, this role is for Ménez now.

The Boss deserves to be a starter, IMO.

Red is a pleasant colour
