Teams: FC Nantes, Chamois Niortais
Deschamps is boring with his choices since the match with Ecuador at the World Cup. Bad timing in choosing who must start and who mustn't.
Apparently he is trying a system here (more than players) but well.
It's only half-time and maybe France will win it in the end but it won't change what I think.
Griezmann will be the new Ribéry, the guy who must be the super-sub the n°12 but you feel obliged to start him because it's true he's good and is quick and has no real contender at an instant T. He should have been a sub against Germany in 2014 for exemple with Giroud as a starter (not a fan of him but he had been good agaisnt the Germans in a friendly before the Cup). That was last year...well...but now, it is always the same, a bad timing in the choices. And i remember Deschamps doing the same errors with Monaco at the time: example in semi-finals of the Couep de la Ligue agaisnt Caen if I'm right...at one match of the Stade de France he putted a 'B' Team. Hey ho Deschamps!! 1 year it's nothing ... you must have a team for the Euro now with a clear hierarchy at least for 75/100 of the team! Defence and midfield, with one and onlyone clear scheme. Maybe he prepares the World Cup 2018...if one is held...in Russia, yes. But wait, that is true it's summer...but it is worrisome still...this "team" is worrisome...Deschamps is worrisome, Lloris, his captain, is worrisome (when he speaks, even if he points out some interesting questions if we manage to pay attention to what he says despite his livid face and boring speach...there is no group...there's no team...there's no balls...there's nothing...Deschamps can scream in the lockroom and what? nothing because that's babies...and most of all, he can't find any solution for what concerns the game on the pitch.
It is like TOP SECRET DEFENCE: I don't want the World to know the brilliant team I will assemblate for the Euro so until the 1st match of the competition you will only have random teams to watch. Industrial secret it is. But when do you find automatisms and...confidence? Stop the langue de wood, stop the political cant, stop doin' shit, play football damn! there are enough good players to do it. And find a defence! Good luck for that though! 98 is over, the 90s are over, FRance must go back to its roots, the offensive football, the flair (with guys like Fékir, damned, it is possible)! Remember 1958, Remember 81, 2 to 85, 6!
DESCHAMPS, t'es chiaaannnnnnt, boring! Out of 98, THe only way the French team manage to do something good is when playing football and the players are here: payet, fekir also grizzly, so please do it! stop the negative football (the no-football) stop the anxiety in the players (foot is a game...wait desch can't do that) or the constant smiles on their faces too, they must take this sport a little seriously too and appreciate it not only for the money and fame but for the game itself, but the real football not the playstation!
Sorry, feel better now.
What Deschamps is trying right now is actually interesting even if he does not have all the players we'd like to see. Because for example, not sure if Pogba can play in the 2 of a 2-3-1. Matuidi neither.
