accorde à sujet

Hi there, just wondering why we don't need to accord the 'grande forme' as 'grandes formes' with the attackers (plural)

 "et nos attaquants ne sont pas en grande forme."

Thanks!

Bonjour Joanne,

It is part of a fixed expression and always stays singular, just like in English: 

'avoir la forme' = to be in good shape / to be fit
'être en grande forme'  to be in great shape / to feel fit

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
