Montpellier had gotten just one win since the French League kicked-off. The reigning champions suffered a 3-1 defeat in their last league game against a newly promoted side and that brought a comment which sounded funny and caused me a huge laughter.
The comment was made by Montpellier’s Younès Belhanda even before our 6 - 1 win against Southampton. He said,
"If we play like that against Arsenal, we’ll concede eight goals."
I guess you are laughing already.
Montpellier coach, Rene Girard also expressed his concern over his side's poor start.
"We did everything to win the game. I am very disappointed. I don’t usually have any reason to reproach my players, but what is happening at the moment is a bit depressing."
"We did quite well in the first half. We need to waken up quickly because, if not, we are going to be in for a big fall on Tuesday."
"We are conceding silly goals. It is quite worrying. This is the first evening where I have had to ask myself some serious questions. We lost our values."
It seems they are seriously missing Olivier Giroud who won the Golden Boot in the French League last season. I don't know the boss' plans but I just hope he starts for us tomorrow. He might be the one to joyfully lead us out of the wilderness on Tuesday night. I believe he gat the masterkey to open up his former club's goal post.
