Troyes narrowly missed out on promotion last season, making an excellent charge in the second half of the campaign before coming up short in the playoffs. Their aim this time around is to go one better. Head coach Rui Almeida departed for Caen in the summer, leaving Laurent Batlles to take over what is his first senior post after three years in charge of Saint-Etienne’s reserves. Improving on the Portuguese’s performance since January, though, promises to be a difficult challenge for the rookie. Troyes’ squad has seen a significant turnover of players over the summer months. While they have lost few undisputed starters, they have seen a high proportion of squad players depart. This should have freed up some significant wages but that has yet to be reflected in the manner they have signed. Yoann Salmier arriving on a permanent deal from Strasbourg is certainly a big boost, while the rearguard is also aided by the signing of Gautier Gallon from Orleans. He has been more reliable than Mamadou Samassa over the past couple of seasons. Christopher Martins Pereira’s loan has not been extended from Lyon, leaving a big void to fill in the midfield, with Eden Massouema and Rui Pires arriving from Dijon and Porto B with the intention of doing so. Neither is proven at this standard, with the former failing to impress at Valenciennes last term. It is in the attacking areas that Troyes look especially short of depth, though. While experienced campaigners Stephane Darbion and Benjamin Nivet have left after performing bit-part roles last season, only Maxime Barthelme has arrived. With Bryan Mbuemo, Kevin Fortune and Yoan Touzghar all available, the front line of Troyes’ attack is not lacking but beyond these players they are without proven quality at this standard and are likely to have to lean on green youngsters. It is a risky strategy.

Target


With a capable coach at the helm, Troyes have a squad able to fight for the playoffs, which is the club’s target this season. Batlles is something of an unknown quantity, though.

Season Review
2018/2019

№3: Troyes

Troyes’ season ended in disappointment as they were defeated in the second round of the playoff by Lens, despite playing at home and despite their opponents going down to 10 men at the end of the first half. To finish third, and to do so comfortably, was an achievement in itself after a wretched start to the season under new coach Rui Almeida. By the end of August, Troyes were second from bottom, having lost five of their first six games. Slowly, they began to turn their season around, based largely on a strong defensive effort. At first, it meant shifting Jimmy Giraudon into an unfamiliar defensive midfield position but, by the end of the campaign, Troyes had evolved into a side playing 3-5-2 very effectively. Almeida made the change halfway through the season and in the second half of the campaign no Ligue 2 side could boast better form than them. Indeed, at one point they won 12 of 13 matches, barely conceding in that run. Offensively, they became increasingly strong, too. Bryan Mbeumo was dubbed the Kylian Mbappe of Ligue 2 for his contribution out wide and then in attack, while Yoann Touzghar was an effective centre forward along with Kevin Fortune. This trio all scored double figures, although there was sometimes a sense they were standing on each other’s toes a little. There was a changing of the guard in midfield, where veteran Benjamin Nivet played out his last campaign largely as a substitute, while the creative Stephane Darbion was injured much of the season. As such, they were forced to play Bryan Pele as their most creative force – a move that worked satisfactorily. Christopher Martins Pereira was an excellent loan pick up from Lyon to add steel to the midfield, though a lack of discipline on a couple of occasions somewhat soured his otherwise strong season. He and Rayan Raveloson were important shields to the defence. Troyes will rue the first month of the campaign, which cost them so dearly in the end. Keeping their squad together will be tough but they should have enough strength in depth to remain competitive next season at the very least.
