By dropping 20 factors in Chartres, Saturday November 12, 2022, the identical hole because the week earlier than in opposition to Reims, theUSO Mondeville confirmed his very dangerous cross of the second. The crew is in tenth place in a homogeneous championship, since 9 formations are held in a small level after 5 days. It’s this density that leads Sebastien Monniernormal supervisor of the membership, to place the rating into perspective.

Sébastien, the leaders and your self are you disenchanted with this begin to the season?

Sure and no. Clearly, we can’t be happy with having a unfavorable steadiness after 5 days. Now the championship is dense. Final weekend’s outcomes are a reminder that the season goes to be very lengthy and really troublesome. All of the groups that had carried out the week earlier than fell to badly ranked groups. Admittedly, this isn’t the perfect begin on this championship. However there shall be cleaver matches each Saturday. You must be prepared. For now, we lack a little bit of collective energy.

Do you’ve gotten the sensation that the issue is collective relatively than particular person?

We have to rediscover our collective values. We additionally want to search out a bit of psychological and bodily freshness. I’ve the impression that we’re on a crew physiognomy on the finish of the championship when it’s the begin of the season. We now have not but seen the spark that may permit us to reassure ourselves as a crew. If everybody is ready to carry out collectively, it would change the face of our matches. For the second, now we have seen ladies carry out individually – Louise (Bussière) in Monaco, Vaciana (Gomis) in opposition to Reims, Nahan (Niaré) in Chartres – however the result’s at all times the identical. It’s in our collective values ​​that we should discover a type of stability.

“The women are the primary to undergo”

This crew appears to be a continuation of a failed finish to final season. Is it a actuality?

No. If we merely observe the outcomes, we’re nonetheless on defeats. However to have mentioned with the gamers lately, together with individually, the massive distinction is that there’s an settlement, there’s a serenity. The group lives very properly. Merely, we’re unable to collectively specific what we all know how one can do, in order that it brings us nearer to victory. The women are the primary to undergo from the state of affairs. They are saying it: “we’re the primary liable for not succeeding in taking part in as we all know how one can do”. We now have an excellent group. The target stays the identical, it’s essential to qualify for the playoffs. And with yet one more victory, we might be third. There isn’t a crew flying over.

You win by one level in opposition to the Federal Centre, you maintain as much as beat Aulnoye, you lose to a promoted participant and you then lose the following two video games by 20 factors: earlier than hanging on to the playoffs, will or not it’s obligatory to take care of on this “very dense” championship?

If we take a look at the rating after 5 days, after all. However on this similar classification, with yet one more victory, we’re third. There isn’t a level in drawing hasty conclusions. The championship shall be tight all season. Each Saturday is a warfare to be received. We now have to be able to go to warfare.

“We do not produce the basketball we must always produce”

Mondeville has been going by means of galley seasons for just a few years. Appears like this shall be one other one…

We will draw the conclusions we wish after 5 days… Final yr, we weren’t in keeping with the targets. And even ! We have been within the lead on the break. The top outcome isn’t what was anticipated. At this time, we’re on the identical need to qualify for the playoffs. If we qualify there and exit within the first spherical, we may have the identical outcome as final season. The outcome would be the similar with totally different season curves. However we’re conscious that we don’t produce the basketball that we must always produce. We attempt to discover options collectively: the membership, the workers, the ladies.

We must swap psychologically, as a result of we think about that this unfavorable sequence hurts the heads…

It is not a headache as a result of – that is the distinction with final yr – the discourse has modified. We’re all conscious of the state of affairs. In fact, we do not prefer to lose with huge gaps. However nobody is working away from their tasks. Everyone seems to be within the actuality of what we dwell. What can be worrying can be to run away from actuality.
