From the ashes

…..and for anyone who likes news of our old boys, Lilian Laslandes scored two goals for Nice in a 3-0 win over Troyes, giving his club hope of avoiding relegation from the French top flight.

The Journal du Dimanche said he was like a Phoenix rising from his own ashes, grabbing the 122nd and 123rd goals of his career.

What a shame not many of those came while he was wearing red and white stripes and, to be fair, playing with teammates who kept hoofing high balls to him thinking he was the same size as Niall Quinn.

  1. Yes, it was a shame Laslandes didn’t have a better chance at Sunderland.
    Any news of my favourite French player Eric Roy? You’d mentioned he was last seen on French TV as a pundit.
