Nancy coach Pablo Correa said: "We have the impression that we gave them the match, we missed our chances. Our biggest battle was with ourselves."

[Q:] Lens doit-il mettre un peu de côté une compétition, l'UEFA par exemple, pour être performant en Ligue 1 ?

[A:] Je ne sais pas s'il faut lâcher quelque chose. Il y a un gros effectif. Je n'ai d'ailleurs jamais côtoyé un effectif pareil. Je crois que l'on peut jouer sur tous les tableaux. Cette dynamique doit nous aider à créer une émulation. Il n'y a pas de titulaires. Tout le monde est là pour donner cent pour cent de lui pendant le temps qu'il joue. Dès mercredi, face à Copenhague, il y aura probablement un gros turn-over, avec une équipe qui sera performante et ne voudra rien lâcher. C'est ce que l'on s'est dit depuis le stage du Touquet.»

From reading the above articles and a few more here's a line-up ('?' probably just the same guy as last week):

Akalé - Dindane - Monterubbio


Sablé - Mangane

Ramos - Hilton - Coulibaly - Laurenti


Update: CB Hilton and GK Runje were selected for last weekend's team of the weak - along with such players as Juninho, Rothen and Elmander.

2nd update: Lineup corrected according to - what a wonderful site!


After yesterday's game Jørgen Glistrup and Flemming Østergaard paid visits to the stadium bar allowing my buddies to have their pictures taken with them and answering questions on the recent G-14 rumors. In short, they seemed more concerned with what influence if any you'd get from a membership of it than if allowed in at all.

Copenhagen Files

I love football and I love the Internet. Copenhagen Files is a playground of mine for the latter and a billboard of the former. The focus is on FC København - the #1 club in Copenhagen and Denmark.

I watch every single FC København game - aways usually on the Danish TV, home games currently from my season ticket seat at Parken Stadium. Every now and then a report from the nearby training pitches are to be expected. Or perhaps just from the supporter environment at local parks or bars ;-)

I also like to bet on games which usually takes place online these days. Therefore, I gather numbers and look at them; I analyze, twist, turn and play with them. And some of them ends up here as my probability assessments. But this blog is not about betting.

In the right hand column I collect every single relevant link you can think of. I actually use it for bookmarks often - perhaps they will prove handy to you too? They should easily guide you to the latest info on injuries, club economy, squad value etc.
