Top Ten : Before they crossed the Channel

Old School Panini à l'heure internationale ! Devant le succès d'OSP en Grande Bretagne et aux Etats-Unis (hier le site a eu plus de visites en Grande Bretagne qu'en France) j'ai décidé pour la première fois de l'histoire de mon blog de rédiger un sujet en anglais. Alors vous vous dites le malheureux déjà qu'en Français il a du mal et ces sujets sont bourrés de fautes d'orthographes, de grammaire et de syntaxe alors en Anglais il va pas oser ??!! Et bien je laisserais Michel Audiard répondre à vos interrogations "les cons ça osent tout d'ailleurs c'est à ça qu'on les reconnait".

In front of a huge growth of Old School Panini's audience in Great Britain and United States I decide for the first time in my blog history to write a topic in English. By this way I want to be grateful for all my new english spoken followers. But as I explain in french just before, I have some difficulties to write in my mother tongue so I let you imagine in english....please give me a chance ! For this first english topic I want to resurrect the "ENTENTE CORDIALE" and I'm sure you will enjoy by this. Here they comes famous footballers in Great Britain, you know them as a Gunner, a Red Devil or a Citizen but before they crossed the channel they were french club formers. I find in my Panini treasure the best of young and haired faces for your pleasure. So we can begin :

10 - Thierry HENRY
Before to be the great striker of Arsenal, Henry was a Monaco's former. There is this first Panini sticker in 1997

9 - Sébastien PEREZ
Perez is a Saint-Etienne former but he played at Bastia before loaned at Blackburn. The sticker below is in 1997 the year before he crossed the Channel

8 - Ousmane DABO

7 - Eric CANTONA
Eric the King with Auxerre in 1986

6 - Antoine SIBIERSKI
Lille 1995

5 - Steve MARLET
Auxerre 1997

4 - Pascal CYGAN
Oustanding picture may be the only one with an haired face (Lille 1996)

3 - Syvlain WILTORD
With his former club, Rennes in 1996

2 - Fabien BARTHEZ
Fabulous Fab with Marseille in 1994

1 - Franck LEBOEUF
My favourite one ! Francl LEBOEUF started with Laavl but in Division 2 and at this time there was not Panini stickers for sub-divsion in France. But it doesn't really matters because the year after he moved at Strasbourg and now we can admire his perfect mulet (1993) :

Bonus : We exporte many players in England but also managers, here they comes the 3 famous I think, Arsène Wenger (Nancy 1985), Gérard Houiller (Lens 1983) and, the most marvelous, Jaques "Charles Bronson" Santini (St-Etienne 1976)
