    You did a nice job with the first post (Y)
    Hopefully, OM will finish on top next season, this year they were full of bad luck. When's Barthez' suspension ending?

    First game of the season in Annecy against Chateauroux after 1 week in Aix-les-Bains. L'OM played well even if it's a bit just physically. New players as Ribéry and Oruma started very well. Next friendly game against Istres tomorrow in Aix-en-Provence.

    Oh yeah I totally agree, last season he did very good games on his left wing with us, better than Koji Nakata and maybe Lizarazu.. I think he'll play more, and the new coach, Jean Fernandez, believe in him after seeing his U-20 WC :rockman:

    We change our logo last season because of Christophe Bouchet, ex-president who wanted to renovate this one... The last was better but this one is pretty good too.

    If we succeed in 3rd Round, we could play against Lazio in semi-finals :rolleyes: Last time we lost 5-1 in Champions League, but I think we can play well in theses games especially if the 2nd games is at home.

    Yeah but there aren't any real proofs that Galatsaray paid his wages... Just a paper who isn't really convincing... We'll see the decision on FIFA, maybe we'll pay Galatasaray but I believe Ribéry, and I think all is normal in this transfer considering he was free... Just wait and see.

    Transfers: Lamouchi and Mendoza to l'OM

    Sabri Lamouchi (Inter) and Andres Mendoza (Metalurg Donetsk) have signed a 1 year-contract yesterday in Marseille. Mendoza will be loaned with an option to buy him after the season, Lamouchi will be free in june 2006.
    After long searchs, l'OM has found a new midfielder with Lamouchi. José Anigo and Jean Fernandez want him to give his experience to young players as Samir Nasri, Ahmed Yahiaoui, Taye Taiwo or Rakhmane Barry.
    L'OM who wanted to buy 1 more forward for the next season takes Andres Mendoza. Not really known here in France except his goal against Milan with FC Bruges, Mendoza will play as a left forward to replace Cheyrou.

    Moreover, l'OM is looking for a DC to replace Meïté and Beye during the African Nations Cup in january 2006. It should be Andre Luis Garcia from Benfica, maybe on loan. This powerful defender (1m92, 86kg) didn't play enough in Portugal and maybe want to leave Benfica to get a bit more playing time in Marseille.

    Last game before our round in Intertoto Cup. Pretty good game, Jean Fernandez tried some players in different positions. Our new striker Mamadou Niang had a few opportunities but we saw his powerful play. Ribéry played very well again but we waited until 85' to score with Bamogo who could leave the team this week to go to Lille on loan. Next game against Young Boys Berne next saturday in Switzerland for Intertoto Cup 3rd Round.

    We find our DC thanks to Carlos Mozer. Now we'll see how he'll be used in the team. I think he'll be useful during Afrcian Nations Cup in january 2006 because Meïté and Beye will play this tournament.

    Really good game :rockman: We played well all along the game, we succeed in keeping the ball even if Berne was more preparated for this round. First official game, fist win especially away, I think it's a good start for our new team. 2 of our new players scored (Niang, Oruma) and Taiwo did an excellent game (H) and duet Batlles-Oruma at midfield is already good (Y) Too bad Berne scored 2 goals but we can see the next game in Marseille with confidence.

    Jean Fernandez (coach):
    "We won the game in the first halftime, thanks to our technique. We were technically better, as long as we physically handle. That’s what explains our victory.
    After that we were physically weak, which explains we were in bad position.
    But we joined forces and made a good point by scoring the third goal. However we haven’t won yet. Young Boys could retaliate next Saturday. One must keep in mind that this team won Lokeren 4-1 and Neuchatel 3-1, both outside.
    We still have one week to be ready."


    Laurent Batlles
    "We played very good throughout first halftime, shooting high balls, stealing it to the opponent. Maybe we did too much, which may harmed us. Swiss were not easy to play, especially on their two wings. But we fought for victory.
    We felt like playing like we did in friendly games. We should go on like this."
