For a team that intends to take a step forward and play a little higher than maintenance, this was the kind of game to win. But Chartres was unable to overthrow Toulouse on Friday night. At the start of the season, the CCMHB shows certain limits and even gives up the idea of a team still in the works. Whether at the level of individuality and play, we see alternately the good and the less good, with an ensemble that lacks for the moment consistency and regularity.
Grahovac’s fantastic double parade. On social networks, the question was asked: do we already have the action of the season? Nebojsa Grahovac’s exceptional double save at the end of the match made the Jean-Cochet hall roar as rarely. On a counter-attack, the veteran Bosnian (37) first repelled Feuchtmann’s attempt, before stopping with his foot, a fraction of a second later, that of Gilbert. He was then in complete disequilibrium! The incredible streak went around the web, and it would be surprising if we didn’t find ourselves in first place in the top stop.
Onufriyenko’s flawlessness. In terms of satisfaction, we could have mentioned Vanja Ilic, true to himself with eight goals, we could have highlighted the full match of Adrian Figueras or the interesting copy of Yvan Vérin, his most successful for a while . But the one who flamed the most on Friday night on the Chartreuse side was Sergiy Onufriyenko. Since the start of the season, the Ukrainian has often been aligned in the second half, relaying Matic Groselj. Against Toulouse, his entry was shattering, with seven goals at 100%. An offensive contribution that allowed the CCMHB to believe in it practically until the end. But in vain.
Too kind a defense. In the spans of Jean-Cochet, at the time of the debrief, observers were unanimous on one point of the defense of the CCMHB is too kind. Against Toulouse, it took water from all sides at the start of the game, with eleven goals conceded in the first fourteen minutes. The general impression is a lack of aggressiveness, of harshness. Cohesion too. The Fenix has been given far too much freedom. “The first quarter of an hour was catastrophic in defense. We weren’t there, ”admitted Captain Morten Vium.
We are not at the level at which we must be. We have a serious problem on the back base, we can’t get goals.
An attack that seeks itself. So far, Chartres has struggled to install his attacking game, and Toni Gerona, the coach, makes no secret of it, he who was quite annoyed by Friday’s production: “We are not at the level at which he have to be, he thunders. We have a serious problem on the back base, we can’t get goals. We are not just in the speed of our attacking game. “
premium The CCMHB pays the price for the awakening of Toulouse
Since the start of the season, no player at the back base has really offered consistency, and the two rookies, Nicolaï Pedersen and Matic Groselj, are blowing hot and cold. Especially the Dane, who we feel needs confidence to express his potential. Friday, he tried a lot but nothing came in (0/7). Even Sergey Kudinov, the soul and lungs of the team for the past two years, is currently appearing half-hearted in his role as center-half.
