Bob Bradley leads Normandy landing
| It isn't every day that a former World Cup coach arrives to coach a Ligue 2 team, so the French press treated Bob Bradley's signing at Le Havre as a big

Le Havre-Brest match as "Bradley en prime time." A 0-0 draw in a match broadcast live on Eurosport did nothing to take away from new enthusiasm at HAC. |
