“He has no weak points. For the last game of this Ligue 2 first leg (day 19), Nimes Olympique travel to the Oceane stadium to face Le Havre tomorrow at 20:45. The match is a remake of David vs. Goliath with the Crocs, the penultimate four game losing streak, the Normans who lead by seven points and are unbeaten since the second day of the championship. “This team doesn’t have a weak point, it scores and doesn’t let go! », summarized Frédéric Bompard on the formation of YAC. Asked at an afternoon press conference (see below), the Gard coach has been rather hopeful in recent hours after speaking sternly following the heavy defeat against Metz. A few other things to remember including, “I’m not too much to let footballers talk”. Frédéric Bompard prefers his players to talk to each other rather than in front of the entire dressing room.

Thomasen and Labonne packs. NO are two players short of a win in Seine-Maritime. Jens Thomasen, who was already out against the Garnets, is still injured. The Dane is expected to return to training with the team in the middle of next week. The second forfeited player is Ronny Labonne, who was released in the first period on Tuesday. Yesterday’s MRI revealed fascia on the right side of the femur. His unavailability is at least two weeks. So it might be fair for the 28th match with Niort. Tomorrow he has to replace this post with Thibaut Vargas. This may be the only change the Nimes coach made compared to the defeat against Metz. “I don’t have a gun. Who do you want to make a revolution with? »he replied that several items could be changed.

OAC wants to take over CNOSF. In the morning of this Thursday, January 12, the leaders of Oaciens were investigated by the new commission of the FFF after they appealed the sanction imposed by the national management control direction (DNCG) last December regarding irregularities in the club’s budget. A withdrawal of 5 points was confirmed to the anger of the Cevennes leaders. “It seems to us that we have not been heard. I didn’t feel like I was at the appeals board. On December 6, I saw myself again. However, a specialist lawyer had prepared a solid 12-page dossier. Five points, it’s like we cheated”, regrets Philippe Mallaroni, the general manager of the club, who went to Paris with president Didier Bilange this morning. AAK is determined not to stop there and has legally challenged this decision. “We have 15 days to contact the CNOSF (French National and Olympic Committee for Sport) and we will! At least we will face real professional referees.Philip Mallaroni completes his opinion.


Jean-Jacques Acquevillo and the people of Nîmes discovered a new parquet floor • USAM

Three friendlies. Last Monday, Usamists returned to training with the pleasant surprise of discovering a new floor. For this second training of the season, they alternate between handball, running at the Marcel-Rouvière stadium and CrossFit. If they benefit from a new surface, Nîmes would like to have the exclusivity of Parnassus. Due to the GRS event and the annual round of the World Archery Championship, they will have to move some sessions to the Camargue gymnasium. For this recovery, Ljubomir Vranjes is without six professional players: Hesham, Sanad and Baznik are at the World Cup, while Sissoko, Tesio and Kamchop-Baril are injured. Three friendlies are planned. On January 20 and 21, the Green team will take part in the Alpes tournament in Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne, facing Montpellier (January 20 at 20:00) and Dijon or Chambery the following day. USAM will then host Granollers Espanyol at Parnassus (free and free entry) on January 25 at 6 p.m. The return to competition will take place on February 3 at 20:00 with a trip to Aix for the quarter-finals of the French Cup. Eight days later, Gardois will follow the same path to find Pauc in the league. A recovery that promises to be intense with this double clash against a direct rival for the European Cups. There are two solutions for qualification: win the Coupe de France or finish fourth.
