Tours vs Nancy by Alcuni
With an Italian coach, Tours became, of course an Italian style team. Strong defense and quite poor in attack, almost complete changed compared with previous seasons. But this new display brought them enough points to stay relaxed in this end of the season. With 47 points, before this game, they will finish somewhere at the middle of the table a bit up compared with what bookies expected from them at the start of the season – 15th spot. A lot of problems for the (ie with transfers before the start of the season), but selling of young striker Kouakou brought them the pace they need. Perhaps now they will sell another promising youngster GK Camara and possible will say “ciao” to the coach Simeone who said he want to leave after the season it’s over. So we had this season a less attractive to watch team, quite an ugly one.
Nancy won the title no matter what will happens in this game. They fully deserved the promotion having an incredible attacking football especially on their own artificial pitch. I don’t remember their promotion to be put under the question mark this season, but of course they had also bad moments too. Comparing with what bookies said prior the start of the season – 3rd spot- they over performed. But in order to survive in Ligue 1, Pablo Correa’s squad must be strengthened. A lot of interesting players but some of them old and probable will be difficult for them to keep the pace in Ligue 1. Nice to see Nancy promoted in Ligue 1 after few years I follow them.
Maybe the last game for Simone, at Tours? I see Nancy playing again at half of their potential without putting too much danger at Camara net. Perhaps home win. gl
