Some observations from last night (as related to me via cell phone running commentary): 1. Gouffran is quality, and was dangerous throughout, interchanging on both wings. 2. Jemaa was the most dangerous player on the pitch. 3. Plante was solid, as usual. 4. Caen had trouble linking with the forwards through midfield, and Proment had an uncharacteristically bad game. Nivet was all right though. 5. Seube and Hengbart, God bless them, were good as usual. Solid players, who I really like (and they are damn good at paintball). 6. Mazure looked lethargic, and his eventual sub scored the winner. The crowd was rocking and what a way to open the season. Allez Malherbe!
