Gameiro, Cisse, Bobo and finally this guy ??? Geeze.
Maazou got injured. It must be karma. I find it funny that people who tried to find him excuses said that he is kind, he just repeated what he has heard in the locker room...
Actually, I've heard him talking French and he speaks French perfectly. Funny thing is I looked up for his nationality and found this :
FRANCE/ BORDEAUX, Sanchez to replace Diarra
Bordeaux could sign Valenciennes 25 year old midfielder Carlos Sanchez to replace 29 year old Alou Diarra who seems intentionned to leave the French club.
great trade for Bordeaux
You forgot to mention he's cheaper which is most important here.
6 south american players in Bordeaux soon to be 7!
South Americans and Africans are cheaper than Europeans and Bordeaux are a cheap club.
almost a year without a post, anyways bordeaux seems to be getting back in form and even in today's loss(which could have turned out differently) they showed some good defensive ability as well as confidence going forward
the 3-5-2 or variation of it seems to be difficult for other sides to break down
bordeaux are doing their usual run again, 4-2 vs auxerre and now has a shot to finish 6th or even up to 4th with some luck
lorient away then a direct contender for a higher spot at the last matchday vs ASSE
Bordeaux did it again!! freaking dramatic, red card to bordeaux in the 85, lorient pushing up, saves by carasso set up some counters, game is in added time and opportunity and eventually a penalty gives way for gouffran
ended 1-0, rennes and asse losing set up bordeaux in 5th and having to face asse at home to defend it with the greens being only 1 point below
I'm impressed by their turnaround this season. At least they can still claim to be one of France's elite clubs. Am I correct that there will be no EL for the fifth place team? Or does Lyon's 4th place spot to go the 5th finisher?
I would pin the turn around in the second half of the season since the first have bordeaux were rotting back and forth from 8th-16th
If i remember this correctly, 1-2 CL, 3rd qualifycation for CL, 4th EL, the other 2 EL spots go to the winners of the domestic cups and since OL won one and is already in 4th; the spot would go to 5th unless quevilly get it? idk
it goes to the 5th place finisher. it would have gone to quevilly only if OL had qualified for the CL, and even then the quevilly management said they would decline.
makes sense especially in quevilly's situation,
3 teams for 5th bordeaux/asse/rennes
the first two battle it out at the green's home while rennes play dijon at home
toulouse has a long shot if GdB draw with asse and rennes loses
I'm cheering for you guys. Batter the Stephanois!
unbelievable game really and to think this team was struggling in mid table but a last run of games have put them in 5th and allowing them into EL, honestly I was doubting bordeaux and hopes dimpered when rennes were ranking up the score vs dijon but that header from diabate turned the tide and forced the game to open up allowing chances on both sides, it was also a coaching battle seeing as both coaches were adapting to the situation whether attacking or defending, in the end bordeaux (only just)managed to hold on defensively to a slim lead of 3-2
interesting to see what transfers will develop seeing as every single position has a player under 30, and the only 2 30+ players Plasil and carrasso can still play
Congrats good luck in the EL next year. Good some solid French representation next year.
ligue1 is sending a good group next year, I can see m'pellier and psg getting out of CL group stages, lille will have to see who they match up in the preliminary but if they lose Lille/Lyon/Bordeaux is a good group for EL, OM is the only wildcard seeing as that club is having some real problems that they need to sort out this summer
pundje has come back from nimes and will probably feature more for bordeaux b than for the first team,
chevalier has signed a one year contract, good offensive player that can really become a good gourcuff(in his better days) just needs to work a bit more on the passing side, great shooter though
the new home and away shirts
personally i've never been a fan of big billboards but this is ligue 1...
the collar on the home doesn't look right, I like the white with the red band and the third kit is growing on me since the end of last season, kia still ruins the shirt for me though

Can anyone tell me how Mariano has been at Bordeaux?
as one of the CBs in a back 3, pass rating, good link up, vision and cover but thats about it
as a wingback, where i think he belongs, he had some good performances and some not so good performances but overall the team has faltered and its really do to selling of some key players(and for peanuts i might add) that has hurt the team the most(gouffran, ciani) and further back
the team cant put it together until push comes to shove and bordeaux are down 0-1 then the magic happens, this team can really come out with a draw but thats about it
mariano is a good player though, worth every penny
