    so the Monaco dispute continues ... definitely don't want to see Monaco have to move from Monaco and lose their tax exemption status, but that is the sole reason why there is an issue with the Frenchies in the first place ... there was talk of a move to the Serie A ... I hope they stay in Ligue 1 because it makes historical sense, and a rivalry with PSG at home and in Europe would bring more prestige to the league ... but I would be lying if I denied secretly hoping that Lega Calcio are whispering in Monaco's ears about making a move ...

      Marseille midfielder Joey Barton was handed a two-game suspended ban for calling Paris St Germain's Brazilian defender Thiago Silva an "overweight ladyboy" on Twitter.

        well, foregone conclusion or not, it's officially done in Ligue 1 ... another unconvincing performance that delivered another win, and the trophy ...

        time for the speculation to go into full swing about next season, RE: PSG, Monaco, Hollande, and the what the rest of league can/will do ...

          Six years, six different champions
          2007/08 - Lyon
          2008/09 - Bordeaux
          2009/10 - Marseille
          2010/11 - Lille
          2011/12 - Montpellier
          2012/13 - PSG

          Last time PSG won the title was in 94, with players like Lama, Le Guen, Ginola and Weah.

            That's nice. Especially after that domination by Lyon for so long.

                Last round tomorrow. All over for first two and last two sides, but plenty of action for the rest. PSG and Marseille have qualified for the CL group stages, Nancy and Brest have been relegated.

                The third CL place and the one Europa League spot will have to be decided tomorrow:
                3. Lyon 64 (CL)
                4. ASSE 62 (EL)
                5. Lille 61
                6. Nice 61

                Saint-Etienne will play Europa anyway, as they won the League Cup. But if they beat Lille tomorrow and when Lyon wont' beat Rennes at home, they'll get a chance at CL for the first time in 30 years.

                The French Cup and the third EL spot will be played out between Bordeaux and Evian.

                As for the relegation battle:

                15. Evian 40
                16. Ajaccio 40
                17. Sochaux 40
                18. Troyes 37 (R)

                Evian and Ajaccio should be fine thanks to goal difference, but it Sochaux will have to avoid losing to Bastia to remain in L1 for the next season, even if Troyes should beat Valenciennes.

                Coming up from Ligue 2 are Monaco, Guingamp and Nantes.

                Fun fact: Monaco are a disgraceful piece of shit.

                Their Stade Louis II has a capacity of 18 500, small stadium for a rich oil-dollar-club? But worry not! There's no need to expand or to build a new stadium - their average home attendance this season was just over 5000 per match, that gives them the 13th place in L2, and there's just 36 000 people living in Monaco anyway. So no one fucking cares, no one will.

                  Just thinking out loud here, what does that make these high profile players that will go there for the big paycheck??

                    My thoughts exactly. Atleast they have a far more illustrious past than PSG.

                      I was a Monaco fan since the Henry/Wenger/Weah days!

                      The only Weah memorabilia I ever owned was PSG though.

                        I hope Monaco kicks ass. I for one find it exciting to see how quickly they'll ascend through the rankings since I watched them back when they had Rafa Marquez (obviously), Patrice Evra, Guily, Prso and Simeone and were winning shit.

                          What stadium did they have back then? Seems ridiculous tthat they'd reach the CL final in a 18k stadium.

                            They've always been at the Stade Louis II.

                              Did they fill it up at least?

                                It has to do with success too. Last year, the average attendance was actually below 5000. This year, fighting for promotion, it got a little better. During good the good years, they did almost sell out the stadium for later rounds of CL, but it has hardly been so in the league.
