    Hey, Bonheur is never painful to watch!:smokin: (I guess I tend to see only him when he is skating:swoon:)

    Yes, interesting. So maybe they are thinking of Alexei Urmanov as new coach for Brian Joubert? He has no other international top student right now.

    Maybe, but according to the FFSG website Urmanov is currently teaching a workshop for the top French singles skaters (except for Joubert) so it would make sense for Gailhaguet to meet with him at least once during this workshop, even if they aren't considering him for Joubert.

    I hope Urmanov has a successful student soon. I enjoy seeing him in the kiss&cry. :)

    Asides from jumps I wonder if Canac's skating skills will compensate Bonheur's weakness is this area.
    Canac&Coia were so smooth while Bonheur and his partners seemed to have issues regarding speed and flow.

    I´m just happy I still can watch Bonheur competing, good luck to him and Canac :cheer:

    Spanish dancer and choreographer Najarro is really getting lot of work (and :bribe: too of course) with French skaters. Joubert, Pechalat/Bouzart and Carron/Jones. He´s everywhere this next season.

    It's been posted on the Brian Joubert Facebook fan page that Najarro has commented on his site that he choreographed Brian's short program to Malaguena. Don't know how reliable that information is, but there you have it.

    Yes to Najarro but do we *really* have to listen to Malaguena again... :/

    Joubert had some interesting and original music choices in the past, shame about him reverting to a tired warhorse.

    So no James/Coia?
    That'd leave Canac/Bonheur the new French No. 1 :rofl:

    Well there is still Mélodie Chataignier/Mehdi Bouzzine and junior champs Anne Laure Letscher/Bruno Massot who are skating senior this year.

    On the other hand DG uses Vanessa to promote himself at the head of the FFSG, announcing James / Coia everywhere :lol:
    I am just still waiting for any press release :lol:

    What a mess...

    I wonder why the James/Coia pairing didn't work out. :(

    Sorry but this profile about Vanessa is old or actual?
    Because probably she raised it when she had problems with Bonheur:):)

    PD: She has deleted it.

    Maybe if we write here enough speculations, she will again log herself in to update us! ;) (Hopefully she will go easy on the exclamation marks though. :D )

    Maybe it was an old profile and she has deleted it after somebody has alerted her to this thread. ;)

    Nope, her late profile had been deleted when she paired with Yannick ;)

    Maxima is probably a bit cautious with everything being said or promised by dear DG.
    Last time, he had to pay for everything himself since DG would only vouch for Vanessa and Yannick.
    So if it's gonna be a new pair, I am sure he awaits a LOOOT of written promises this time :lol:

    The profile was clearly updated and deleted yesterday. She had her Euro 10 SP video on it. And she said that her goal was to go to Worlds, Euros, and French masters.
