Allez les blues!

Géraldine Lepère, Oct 10

The normal use of ALLER is the verb ‘to go’, or it’s used with an infinitive to turn a verb into a future tense - “Vous allez manger chez nous?”.

It’s also used as “Allez”, meaning “Come on”, or “Let’s go”, or even “Go Away”.

A phrase you might hear this Sunday night during the rugby is “Allez les blues!”, meaning “Come on France!”
