GF38. Oswald Tanchot already in his element

The new GF38 coach Oswald Tanchot took charge of his group this week. With several priorities and a vision that fit a context that he seems to have already understood well.

« Pleasure », « special moments », « enjoy these moments “. If Oswald Tanchot had appreciated being able to take a break and recharge his batteries after his trying season at Sochaux, he did not hide his pleasure in returning to the pitch last Thursday at the former “Smart Good Parc” at La Poterne.

« What interests us is what connects us, what happens on the field. It’s the balls. The relationship, we created it first and foremost on the field even if we can exchange in the offices and in the locker rooms “, the technician enthused. We took a lot of time for the medical tests to have reliable data and allow us to save time later, but we have now been able to give the starting signal for the preparation. »

As a new cycle begins, Tanchot begins to impose his mark. The field will obviously display his ideas, his influence on his new group. But the essence of this beginning of preparation is to explore, to create, to refine on all the dimensions of construction of a desired coherent whole. The coach thus evokes a moment where ” on co-constructed “. The exchange remains at the heart of his concerns. There is what he brings but there is also what he needs to absorb from others, from his players, from his staff. ” I am rather in the observation phase. “, he notes. There are people who have been at the club for a while who have given me their vision. I will also take the time to discuss with the executives who also have their vision of the elements that worked or that worked less well in order to be able to start on a roadmap that will be effective in a second phase, during the month of July, beginning of August. »

This start of preparation will also more traditionally allow everyone to gradually get back on their feet physically and prepare the squad for future championship games, to establish the first principles of play that will be refined at the pace of the evolution of a group that is far from being definitive yet. With inevitably a pragmatism linked to the obligation to get results. But Tanchot also sees another dimension in his work. Our job is also to entertain. People need to come to the stadium to have fun. We can’t ignore that dimension. We have to have a team that is strong enough to perform and win matches but at the same time do it with emotion. And emotion is not only linked to the game. It is linked to the commitment of the players, it is linked to their love for their job, to the relationship with the public. If we create that, people will be able to vibrate in front of a match where you will snatch a victory at the end in pain. In Grenoble I don’t think we can start by telling ourselves that we will control and dominate everyone. On the other hand, we must be able to tell ourselves that we will fight at every moment to make the task difficult for our opponents. »

Oswald Tanchot also seems to be in line with the expectations of the people of Grenoble. I also did some research, approached some people to try to feel what people are satisfied with or less satisfied with. Why there is a form of disenchantment. Because there is a core loyal to the GF38 but we must try to make it grow. We are lucky to be able to count on very active supporters. But I think that there is also a need to rewrite things so that it vibrates. »

To do this, he will need to find the right balance between emotion and results. Or perhaps even better: the formula that reconciles the two. With six short weeks ahead of him to refine this.
