deporiginal is an unknown quantity at this point

Feyenoord coach Gert-Jan Verbeek could get fired this week, or the beginning of next week. Maybe if that happens, Feyenoord could get a "new-coach-boost" against Lech. I read a lot of the players want Verbeek out, so maybe if he gets fired, they'll want to show themselves against Lech.

Second, we should be able to beat Nancy. They've been horrible in Ligue 1, and it's not like they've been that spectacular in the Uefa Cup either. They beat an atrocious Feyenoord 3-0, even though Nancy was pretty crappy. They should've lost in Poznan, like Depor. And they failed to get something against an already qualified CSKA at home. Sure they scored three times, but CSKA seemed to hold back when in the lead, and when things got tied, they simply stepped up the pace again and won.

At Nancy, they're not even expecting to get a point against us. They're talking more about Feyenoord - Lech, than Depor - Nancy. If we play with a strong enough team, this should actually be a pretty easy game like the one against Feyenoord, if we're a bit lucky.

Edit: Holy crap, just saw all the injuries Nancy have Ouaddou and Sami won't play, their best player in defense André Luiz is suspended, and Chrétien will probably still be injured too. Their defense will be their B-team. Seeing they'll be relying on their defense, Depor should be able to push Nancy aside without too many problems to be honest. If we can score in the first half hour, we could see another game like against Feyenoord. This'll depend on Lotina. For the love of god, play with both Lafita and Guardado from the start. He could always sub them early in the second half, if they get tired.
