Yeah Chelsea & PSG is becoming the new Liverpool v Chelsea from the mid 2000s a little bit

Thanks man, we'll give it our best shot! Fingers crossed!
a tough group...... and that is needed for Marseille. You will need that colombian's skills to get through this.... don't think he is as good as Cabella though

any way good luck
Jeeesus that's gonna take some real effort getting out of! Best of luck!
I'd be aiming for third in that group, but will be very tough as Lazio are a decent side for sure. Though you could prove me wrong and get top 2 in the end, no matter how difficult that task seems.

Haha im gonna try and not take you saying we needed a tough draw as an insult to my team ;) nah just kidding mate, its going to be a very tough test for us, but id rather that than get three teams we cruise past, its the Champions League you have to be at the top of your game if you want to do well!

As for Cardona, hes made an impressive start, hopefully he'll fill Cabella's shoes! Thanks mate!

Cheers mate, definitely wont be easy but we've got a good enough squad to at least put up a fight!

Yeah third is the aim at the minute but we'll give it our best shot and see where we end up!

LEAGUE TABLE


PLAYER OF THE MONTH


MICHY BATSHUAYI
With 4 goals and 2 assists in 5 appearances, the big Belgian striker has started the season in flying form and if he can continue to bang in the goals with this strike ratio then he could be on for his best season in an L’OM shirt yet. After two good seasons, could this be the year that Batshuayi finally hits the heights that he seems to be capable of, on a more consistent basis?

TRANSFERS

http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/af298/Mg1001/Olympique%20de%20Marseille%20Manager%20Story/Banners/Transfers%20In.jpg.png
Clinton N’Jie, Tottenham Hotspur, Loan. We had been looking for a third striker all summer and after several offers to take Munir off of Barcelona’s hands had failed, we were left with a situation where we were approaching the end of the transfer window and beginning to run out of time. Clinton N’Jie is a player who knows Ligue 1 very well and had a fantastic year for Lyon before he moved to Tottenham and if he can find his form and his feet in the opportunities he gets then he will be a useful addition to our squad.

Chaker Alhadhur, SM Caen, £2.3 Million. Another addition in an area where we needed reinforcements. With Benjamin Mendy and Franck Tabanou either injured or suspended going into the end of August we needed someone who could deputise at left back. Camilo Zuniga was unable to join us from Swansea as we had reached the limit of the maximum number of foreign players we could register. Alhadhur was a player we had scouted all summer and the time was right to bring him in and hopefully he can develop into a good enough player to really challenge Tabanou and Mendy for the left back slot in the starting XI.

MANAGER'S THOUGHTS

http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/af298/Mg1001/Olympique%20de%20Marseille%20Manager%20Story/Uploads/59125d56-f5e8-4840-b0ca-92a5d93fea84.jpg

A very good start to the season if not fantastic. We’ve picked up 11 points from the first possible 15 and we’re very happy with it considering it is our best start to a Ligue 1 season. The victories over Guingamp and Montpellier were very pleasing on the eye as we scored 7 goals in 2 games, played some delightful football and moved the ball around with some real pace and the two sides couldn’t cope with it. Against Lille and Nantes in the two draws we were disappointing as we couldn’t find a way around their systems as they both clearly set up to frustrate us and try and nick something and FC Nantes very nearly did and they seemed to have found a way to get positive results against us, which started with the Coupe de la Ligue Final. To finish the month off on a positive note though we did absolutely brilliantly against Rennes in the final game of the month with some fantastic counter attacking football so to do that well in a game was brilliant and the boys deserve a lot of credit. To be second at the end of August is encouraging, although if last season was anything to go by the teams that are up there at this stage of the season, then things won’t finish that way, and hopefully we can continue with our very good run. The other thing that needs addressing is the UEFA Champions League Group Stage Draw. We know we’ve been dealt a very tough group and one that we are going to have to do miraculous things in to get out of but if we break it down we could do something here. FC Barcelona are obviously a world class team that could and should beat us in both games but Manchester City are different. We gave them a very good game last season in the Europa League and if we can snatch points against them and beat Lazio then maybe, just maybe we have a chance in this group.


Excited to see how N'Jie will do it! I really love him.. Oh and btw.. Good start to the season :)

Maybeee dont get your hopes too high for this one man but....SPOILERS!!

Yeah a solid start, nice to be above PSG this early on in the season too :D
Not a bad month and nice transfers
Good start, any chance at seeing how Batshuayi has developed and his overall goal scoring record?
