    Nice Forum - Translated Link

    I wanted to say a polite hello and see what they think of the owners. Might be an interesting thread to follow with the use of Chrome's in built translator. I didn't just chuck the English into Google Translate by the way, went through a French speaking (but English) friend so hopefully the context etc is okay. Just thought it could be interesting :p

    I've already prepared to have my head ripped off, but you never know! I know us English don't have the best of reputations abroad :D

    Pretty good job mate as long as you meant to call Chien Lee, Dog? :D, I’ve just ran it thru google translate....

    First of all, sorry for the bad French! I hope this post is readable - I took Spanish at school!

    As you probably all know, OGC Nice and Barnsley FC now have the same owners (Dog Lee, etc.).

    I was wondering what your opinions are on owners. Were they good for the club? Did they meet your expectations? Should we be worried or enthusiastic about the future of our own football club based on your experience?

    Good luck with your season, at Barnsley we monitor your results and wish you good luck. We have a lot of good people here (and some idiots, like everywhere else). Barnsley is a working class city and football is at the center of our identity.

    If some of you speak English, we also have an active forum that you can visit at any time. It would be nice to have some communication between our clubs.

    As expected the same things as they’ve said before and the strategy in place here ie buy young players bring them on and sell for profit. No surprise.

    Loving the term that ‘the soufflé has fallen’. I wonder what the Barnsley equivalent is??

    Haven't they adopted our policy? They weren't buying young with Ballotelli and Sneijder and l've only heard it from their fans this season.

    Ask one if he's willing to put me up if we arrange a friendly. I'll bring some Yorkshire tea.
