NICOLAS TUCAT / AFP Les Ultramarines are demanding the resignations of Frédéric Longuépée, the club's deputy president and Antony Thiodet, the boss of ticketing, after a year of tensions. The largest group of Bordeaux supporters left their turn completely empty during the match against the Greens, simply displaying banners. Its representatives today refuse to discuss with the accused and defer to the co-owner of the Girondins, Joe DaGrosa.
There is definitely something wrong with the Girondins de Bordeaux. Even when the results are pretty good (6th in Ligue 1) with a quality show, it rumbles in the stands. And getting stronger! Indeed, the conflict between the Ultramarines and part of the club's management took on a new dimension on Sunday during the match against Saint-Etienne (0-1).
The Virage Sud simply remained empty throughout the meeting: It was not a strike but an insurrectionary movement, immediately specifies Florian Brunet, one of the spokespersons for the largest group of Bordeaux supporters. After a year of tensions, the Ultramarines are asking for the resignations of Frédéric Longuépée, the deputy chairman of the Girondins and Antony Thiodet, the Director of Stadium and Networks Commercial Strategy since notably the so-called Virage Sud ticketing business.

After the Longuépée resignation banners and the singing strike for ten minutes against PSG, the UB87s therefore decided to raise their voice even further. The club is trying to defuse the situation and published a new press release last Saturday, recalling its commitments to popular football and that its leaders are working on a project that has its roots in the history and culture of the Girondins institution.
But this one ultimately had the opposite effect. He set fire to the powder even more for Florian Brunet: We are not quoted once, we are put down again. There is disdain for us. Frankly, the cup is full and rarely the fight has been so unanimous with us. Before this press release, Frédéric Longuépée had proposed to the Ultramarines several meetings last week according to our information because he is always very open to discussion on this subject, confides one of his relatives at 20 Minutes.

On the other hand, we reply that it is too late, there will be no turning back, the door is closed! . The situation therefore seems inextricable and it does not matter if Paulo Sousa requests the sacred union around the club and that the sportsman suffers from it on the field.
Faced with the stagnation of the conflict, the American owners of the club are today on the front line. But for now, everyone is passing on the hot potato. Since he reaffirmed his support for Frédéric Longuépée a few weeks ago, the big boss Joe DaGrosa has remained silent.
He must come out of the woods! We are ready to discuss with him as with Hugo Varela (his right arm) or Eduardo Macia (the football director) because they represent the real FCGB. Frédéric Longuépée and Antony Thiodet are building a second business club.
If Florian Brunet recognizes that short-term results exist (the fill rate has increased by 20% according to the club), he says that the club will cut itself off from its base in the long term. At time T, no new meeting between the club and the Ultramarines is planned. Until the next episode, the group is considering new actions.
