Guingamp had hoped to achieve promotion back to Ligue 1 at the first time of asking but instead spent the season battling relegation, only to pull away from trouble towards the end of the campaign and enjoy what was a rather flattering mid-table finish. Frederic Bompard had saved the club but his role as firefighting coach was nevertheless ended in the summer, with Stephane Dumont stepping up to take charge of a team for the first time. Previously, he was the assistant at Reims, where he worked both in Ligue 2 and in Ligue 1. Like many clubs in Ligue 2, Guingamp have worked hard to reduce their wage bill significantly over the summer months. Players on big wages like Paul-Georges Ntep and Lebogang Phiri have departed, while veterans Jeremy Sorbon and Pierrick Valdivia have departed. There was a need at Guingamp to almost reset and that is exactly what has been done over the summer months, with even key winger Ronny Rodelin allowed to depart. Guingamp have drawn heavily from their youth set up while they have several players returning on loan who may be able to perform in the first team, with the foremost among those Mehdi Merghem and left-back Pedro Rebocho. Merghem is coming back from a serious injury like centre-back Felix Eboa Eboa, whose absence last season weighed heavily on the side. What signings have arrived have typically been drawn from the bargain basement. Souleymane Diarra has joined from Pau while experienced midfielder Maxime Barthelme was a regular in the Troyes side that won the league last season. With Frantzdy Pierrot in attack, Guingamp should have some attacking power, although he was another to suffer from injuries last season. Indeed, the whole offensive unit, which has not been given a dramatic facelift, was one that flopped last term. It surely cannot underperform so drastically again. Youssouf M’Changama in the midfield is the team’s driving force and will be a key figure this term, while there remains enough in defence to build a team around. The challenge for Dumont is whether he can do it in his first job.

Target


Guingamp will be aiming for promotion. This is a feasible goal if they can realise their promise and not flop like last season.

Season Review
2020/2021

№9: EA Guingamp

When the season began, Guingamp were expected to be one of the Ligue 2 sides competing for automatic promotion, but instead found themselves fighting a grim relegation battle almost until the end of the season. Indeed, after 35 matches, they were still 16th in the league, and the fact that they finished in the top half offers an incredibly flattering reflection of the football they produced for much of the season. Indeed, they only finished two matchdays all term in the top half of the standings. Guingamp’s biggest issue was that they did not score enough goals, which given they had one of the best attacking line ups in the league was rather embarrassing. Again, their tally of 42 in total is flattering given that seven of these arrived in the last three matches. Mecha Bazdarevic produced a miserable start to the season for Guingamp, which saw him sacked just after the halfway point of the season. Frederic Bompard came in for a firefighting role and was demonstrably better, suffering only three defeats – which all came against top-four opponents. There were, however, too many draws, but it took a long time to turn the confidence in the squad around. By the end of the season, they were functioning like the team they were expected to be, albeit in a rather nervy manner at times given the stakes of the fixtures. If the attack underperformed, the midfield had its life complicated by injury issues, with Pierrick Valdivia and Lebogang Phiri two notable performers to miss long periods of time. It was an area that leaned too heavily on Youssouf M’Changama, though ultimately Guessouma Fofana came onto a game in that sector. Similarly, the rearguard underperformed for long periods of the season, with neither coach able to really settle on a first choice in either of the full-back roles, which were a source of weakness. Philipe Sampaio arrived from Brazilian football and was a rock in a defence that sorely missed the combativity of Felix Eboa Eboa, injured early in the season not to return. Goalkeeper, too, was an area of disappointment. Nicolai Larsen arrived as first choice last summer but was horribly error prone and gave way to Enzo Basilio. Guingamp must continue the momentum they picked up at the end of last term under new management. The goal next season, though, will remain promotion.
