Diao is a defensive midfielder very polyvalant ( he can play defense, center left or right or midfielder )
he was formed in Monaco with Henry and Trezeguet for example

He isa kinda Vieira

i heard Liverpool is intersted, isn't it ?

Thanks, there was a small rumour that he was Liverpool bound but nothing more has been said.

Yeah,he plays for Lille(i think).His role is kind of like a 2nd striker - well that's his best position IMO anyway.He has good dribbling skill,and is also very competent in retaining the ball.An all-round very tidy player,definitely a #7 for me.To get a good idea of what he did,watch his performances in the CL - and his goals as well of course;).I particularly liked it when he scored against MU:tongue: .Having said all that,i feel he has the technical ability to play in either wide midfield positions also.:)

Thats what I thought, I've only seen him play against Ytd and a few highlights. Looks like a decent player if we get him.

hello CardiffRed!

ok first Salif Diao is a defensive midfielder and plays for Sedan.
He is from Sénégal and was part our thier African Nations cup team that reached the final. (he was a starter) He is also part of their 23 man squad for the WC 2002.
He works very hard and is very strong.


Bruno Cheyrou !!! this is a class player! one of my favourite players in Le Championnat! he is a attacker or offensive midfielder and has good technique and shoots very good!!!
his brother Benoït Cheyrou plays also for Lille and is also a great youngster! yes I heard that Liverpool almost had signed Cheyrou and thats a shame cause it´s sad seeing all our players leaving our leauge..:(
btw he is 24 years old...

Cheers Lebouef.

It's rumoured that Houllier will sign Bruno Cheyrou (with a possibility of signing his brother as well) BUT they are also looking to buy Arteta in a double raid on Le Championat.

litlle brother Benoït Cheyrou won the u18 Euro 2 years ago, that team had many young prospects such as Mexés, Vignal (Liverpool), Cissé, Penneteau, Ahamada, Bugnet etc etc

do you know that you have also signed 2 of our most talented youngsters in ANTHONY LE TALLEC & FLORENT SINAMA-PONGOLLE.
both born in 1984. they will hook up with the team in 2003!
(now both currently at Le Havre)..


btw I think that right now you have 4 frenchmen in your squad:
Grégory Vignal, Bernard Dioméde (world cup winner), Nicolas Anelka (on loan), Djimi Traoré (away on loan), yeah and the keeper Pegguy Arphexad....

Yeah, Le Tallec and Pongelle look good, it'll be good for them (and us :D ) playing in the first division next year.

As for Liverpools other players, I don't expect Arphexad and Diomede will be around much longer, Trajore if he continues to improve will stay and Vignal will probably start as LB next year.

Dioméde will probaly return to France this summer, I think he is a quality player and can be great if he only get´s time on the pitch!

Arphexad, I don´t know anything about him and I really don´t care anything about him neither.

I would be very happy seeing Vignal playing as LB starter next year!
