biggest part of french problem is the old players, like apex, rpk etc. They are well known and dont evolve anymore.
I would pick a lineup with alex,amanek,zywoo,kennyS and 2 young talents, or devo + 1 young
There is no problem with "old" players when they're reliable. The biggest problems with french teams is inconsistent players like kennyS, shox or apEX and the lack of leadership.
ZywOo is way more efficient than kennyS and he is OK with taking the AWP. He just doesnt like playing with it on Vertigo for example.
AmaNEk is a good AWPer, he can do some amazing play with shit weapons, he is a good lurker with good clutching habilities and he isn't scared to play agressively (unlike Happy for example). His communication seems on point, he can be a good secondary caller. So i'm OK with him.
ALEX doesn't convince me. He is an OK caller but not a leader like Ex6TenZ or even XTQZZZ. We will see in Epicenter. And if i remember correctly, he and the AmaNEk/devoduvek duo weren't in good terms at the end of their LDLC line-up, but this is only rumors.
devoduvek is someone i like, he plays for the team, he is skilled. But i am scared he isn't as motivated since the end of the LDLC line-up (cf VaKarM interview of him and MatHEND at DH Tours 2019). He dropped bodyy's project for Heretics and that's OK but unlike bodyy, he seems to not have a strong mentality and to give up easily. At least that's what it looks like from the outside.
And about misutaaa and jeyN (yeah i've read #45 xD) , misutaaa needs to finish school before playing full time. Right now he is in what we call "1ere générale" so that means he will finish school in summer 2021. So no misutaaa for now. And jeyN is studying right now, he said he will tell in January 2020 if he comes back or not and in which team if yes (cf twitter.com/jeyNCSGO/status/118089037081..) He is really good but also inconsistent. We will see how he performs in the future because now it is still too early to tell if he is a T1 player or just a lucky pugger.
