Man, those fake pics suck! Quality wise, I rework images better than that!
Oh and actually, Mario Jardel should have had signed for Marseille last summer during the Copa America. After several episodes between Bernard Tapie, Jardel's agent and Galata's management, the thing looked like done deal but in the end, the player's economical pretentions ruined it all.
As for Zizou back in France (and far from Madrid ), where do I have to sign?
OM has always been special for me. I can`t explain it, but it proberly has something to do with a person called Papin. Also because Ivàn played there. The president of Adidas has the same postion in OM and that`s why they managed with the big hunt for trophys when we signed Dugarry, Blanc and Maurice etc. But after that I don`t no what happend, but I hope the return of Tapie will be a positive influence and that OM will soon be back on the highest european level.
It wasn't the brighest decision and it is now confirmed. Tapie's been hired due his huge popularity among the suporters , who strangely enough, chose to remember the good moments (CL 93) and ignored the demise or the scandals (OM-Valenciennes, etc). He arrived last season very mediatically and told everyone who felt like listening that he would succeed where his predecessors have failed. :yawn: Well, he... failed in a miserable way!!! We've had polemics off-field, we've had trials, (Marseille are deep juridical and financial problems, i spare you the details...) but where is the improvement he promised?
He himself supervised the transfer campaign which was catastrophic. 44 professionals under contract (way too much!!!), and most of them being on loan or has been's. Tapie probably told himself, according to the old adage, "how to make new with old?". Instead of buying less but better, he sold few players at a loss and brought in about 20 players. How can a team that is being changed so radically and so fast, work exactly?
Well, I will stop here as I could write novelms about the subject! Just to say that Tapie won't be there next season...
