5 Bordeaux players who would make it in the Premiership
Having put paid to Juventus & Bayern Munich my beloved Girondins de Bordeaux have now won away at Lyon and Montpellier (currently 2nd in the league) in the last week.
I guess it's time to acknowledge that they're not a one man team after all.
So here's my guide to which five players would take the Premiership by storm (are you reading this Harry?):
5th: Cedric Carrasso - A big money signing from Toulouse in the Summer the 28 year old keeper has more than justified the expense and is quickly becoming a crowd favourite. Sure to be in the French squad in South Africa.
4th: Yoann Gouffran - another newcomer. He's a 23 year old attacking midfielder with oddles of skill and plenty of confidence. He's better than Obertan was so expect Fergie to come calling soon.
3rd: Benoit Tremoulinas (pictured) - Rampaging left-back, born in Bordeaux in 1985 the ultras's on the virage sud love him. He has everything that Ashley Cole has apart from a wife who can't sing.
2nd: Marouanne Chamakh - it's hardly a secret that he wants a move to a Premiership club but he hardly endeared himself to Sunderland fans when he said they were too small.
1st - Yoann Gourcuff - no surprise that the Bordeaux number 8 heads the list. It's a case of when he heads off to play in England or Spain not if. Look out for him in South Africa this summer, he could be player of the tournament if Domenech gives him free rein.
