The Greens already in the red

Saint Etienne picnic crisis. After the third defeat of the rank of their favorite (1-0 Boulogne) Green fans invaded the pitch Geoffroy-Guichard, castigating the staff of ASSE. The fans roar: a delayed recruitment and lack of clear results ... The club ten times champion of France was second last, only saved by a goal difference qu'Auxerre less catastrophic.

Three matches, three defeats, six goals conceded, one goal scored. The season began badly for Saint-Etienne, which points to a miserable 19th place. Only AJA Jean Fernandez has done worse. Side of the Abbe-Deschamps, was expected to a season galley. Geoffroy-Guichard, the crisis brewing. For AS Saint-Etienne knows the worst start in Ligue 1's history. Not the club Etienne had displayed a single point after three rounds. During those 56 previous seasons in the elite hexagonal ASSE had always harvested at least one point.

At this rate, patience demanded by Alain Perrin Etienne supporters may soon reach its limits. The home defeat (1-0) to face at the Tom Thumb League was 1, Boulogne-sur-Mer, set fire to the powder. Saint-Etienne is beside the nervous breakdown: after coming face to promoted a thousand supporters invaded the pitch in the Cauldron, bellowing his disappointment at the rostrum with slogans become customary since last season: executives, resign! "

Recruitment challenged

The target of the wrath of fans forezien? Shareholders, Bernard Caiazzo and Roland Romeyer, but also the general manager, Vincent Tong-Cuong, and sporting director Damien Comolli, guilty in their eyes lack ambition for the club and not having completed recruitment in the Domain offensive, despite the promises started a few weeks. The banners displayed before the Saturday meeting were clearly: "A quartet unworthy of our colors," "A team is built before the takeover" ...

Since his return to Ligue 1, the ASSE was growing steadily. 13th, then 11th, then finally 5th in 2008, For├ęzien believed the revival of a legendary club in France. But the 2008-2009 season turns into a nightmare. After 5 straight losses, Laurent Roussey was sacked. Alain Perrin called to the rescue, made with whatever was at hand and, despite a workforce plagued by injuries, St. runs off the final day, thanks to a victory over Valenciennes.

Too many injuries

Injuries have not spared Alain Perrin's men this season either: and Perrin, Monsoreau, Ilan Mirallas Hautcoeur and Dabo were absent Saturday. But these absences do not explain everything. Openly targeted by regulars Geoffroy-Guichard, the duo Romeyer-Caiazzo and its recruitment policy. At Saint-Etienne, where the departure of Pascal Feindouno has not been digested, they do not understand how the staff could have let slip Baf├ętimbi Gomis Lyonnais in the enemy without replacing it with a more attacking side as Boubacar Sanogo. Especially the recruits announced (Diego Tardelli, Augusto Fernandez) are slow to point their nose.

Players such as Brazilian Ilan, a part of the team that refuses to extend his contract, also question the strategy of the club. "We sell players, it weakens the team and did not increase thereafter. At one point, he must be more ambitious. I'm not playing to finish 15th," he lamented in Progress, recalling that there had to St. Etienne "everything to succeed." Even Jeremy Janot, faithful among the faithful, was booed against Boulogne.

As Lens and Nantes

Side directors, obviously attempting to calm the game Romeyer Roland has cleared the microphone Canal +: "I do not feel guilty," said co-president of the ASSE. "I even looked in the mirror this morning (Saturday). Has been entrusted the keys of the game with two leaders (Vincent Tong Cuong, managing director, and Damien Comoli sporting director), we trust them." At a press conference, Alain Perrin has also refrained from throwing oil on the fire. "I do not think the fans but I do not understand them either. In England, players have gone out to the applause of the public because they provided entertainment. Except that the show this weekend, came more visitors, despite all the good will of Sanogo and a Gelson Fernandes. The two recruits were already in shape, could bring some hope to the Greens.

The fans themselves, clinging to the memory of OM Albert Emon (one win in 9 games), saved by Eric Gerets, or Tottenham of Juande Ramos, who finished eighth under the guidance of Harry Redknapp after the worst start in club history. Not sure, however, that this solution satisfies Alain Perrin. Except that on Saturday evening when the pitch invasion, one would almost felt back a year or two back, Felix-Bollaert and La Beaujoire, the year of the descent of Lens and Nantes.
