Little interview with Anelka in l'Equipe today during which he mentioned the challenge of adapting to Boltons game. The paper expressed surprise that a player who has spent time at Arsenal Liverpool and Manchester City should have a problem adapting to English football, Nico explained it by saying that there is English football and then there is Bolton football.

Anyway he's looking forward to the transfer window and possiblility of new arrivals. Dhorasoo, the recently fired by PSG and ex international was mentioned.

Nico always looks forward to the transfer window.

Can't say I am sorry to see him struggling.

Dhorasoo's Sex, Lies and Videotape approach to training and team talks would go down a treat with Big Sam, I'm sure.

Cue his brothers leaking "Barca looking at Nic" stories . . .

Dhorasoo is too weak to last in the premiership.

i thought dhorasoo was well past his best anyway.

i didn't realise anelka was struggling at bolton, whenever i've seen him he's been good.

It is somewhat hard to locate Dhorasoo's "best", which has elements of les neiges d'antan, and he is certainly too lightweight for any British league, but I have to think that his video escapades would be enough by themselves for Allardyce to ban anyone even thinking about him.

This sounds like typical Nic, "reaching out to a brother in trouble with the Man" (i.e., Domenech).

My money is on Greece or Qatar as their next destination, should they decide to take the brothers in arms thing any further.

Briefly. Dhorasoo was a member of the French World Cup squad, but barely got on the pitch (if at all). He arrived at camp with a video camera, and spent most of it with his eye to the viewfinder, filming teamtalks, training and the usual horsing around "for himself".

He then put together an edited version of "highlights" (including a great shot of his feet intended to evoke his depression on not being selected) and sold it to one of the French tv stations. Even though there were no "bombshells", Domenech and his teammates went ballistic and he was dropped from Les Bleus tout de suite.

He then got into a blazing row with Lacombe over not being picked for PSG, refused to show up for training or reserve matches, and eventually became the first French player in the modern era to be "fired" by his club for refusing to perform.

He has always been a bit of an oddball, but has really stepped it up in that category over the last six months or so.

Given Sam's Panorama experience, I would actually love to see Dhorasoo trying to bring his little video camera into the dressing room.
