  • Ligue 1 Thread

    There's a thread for PSG but as I hate them, I thought we could do with a L1 thread too. Maybe someone else cares too, although I doubt it

    Most successful team - St. Etienne with 10 titles, however tha last time they manage to win it was in 80-81.

    Montpellier won their first league title last year, infront of PSG and Lille.
    Dissapointment for Lyon (4th), Marseille (10th) and Auxerre (now in Ligue 2).

    Bastia, Reim and Troyes are all back in top flight. Monaco still in Ligue 2.

    Top 2 teams qualify for the Champions League, third place team will start from the 3rd qualifying round. Fourth place team will get a place in the Europa League, two other EL slots are to filled via the Cup and League Cup

    So far, after 6 rounds, Marseille lead the table winning all of their matches so far. Which is a surprise to everyone, after losing Azpi, M'Bia and Diarra. Number 1 striker Loic Remy has had a **** season so far and is currently out with an injury, Gignac has been amazing, though. Joey Barton is also finally able to play after his 12 match ban.

    Lyon and P$G also up there, **** them. Stade de Reims is currently holding an awesome 5th place, and they beat Montpellier 3-1 few rounds ago. After buying some outcasts from Bordeaux and Lille this summer, no one really thought we'd be talking about Reims' come back to the big game.

    Another kick-ass team so far is Lorient at 4th. They avoided selling all their best players this summer and with a help of Alain Traore who they signed from relegated Auxerre, Gourcuff has managed to make bread of out ****.

    Montpellier are back at their old ways, being laughed at down at 17th.

    Two OM vs. PSG matches next month. First Le Classique of the season will be played on 7th of october in the league, when PSG will go south to the Velodrome. Marseille will visit PSG in the League cup on the 31th.

            My French team is RCL but I just realized their not even in the top division anymore

            Can we have a French Ligue 2 thread?

              lol, it's funny how many teams who were once fighting for top half finish in L1 are now in L2 - Guingamp, Lens, Monaco, Nantes...

                Ha yeah I really loved Deschamps' Monaco.

                I've always thought how great it would be to travel round France for a few weeks just watching a variety of football matches, very feasible too as France is right on my doorstep and tickets are easy to get, so many likeable clubs in France.

                  So today, Valenciennes invited Marseille over and threw a surprise bukkake party. 4-1 loss ended their 100% record.

                  Lyon plays Bordeaux later tonight, if they win they're just one point away from Marseille.

                    Marseille 18
                    PSG 15
                    Lyon 14
                    Lorient 13
                    Bordeaux 13

                    Marseille and PSG meet tomorrow at the Stade Velodrome. PSG lost to Porto in the CL while Marseille beat Cypriot champions AEL 5-1 in the Europa League, the awesomeness of Joey Barton made his debut at the Velodrome. 3rd and 4th place Lorient and Lyon also meet at Yves Allainmats' stadium.

                      Any standout players so far?

                        Andre-Pierre Gignac and Michel Bastos are having their revivals. Both have been pretty poor last years and Bastos was close to leaving Lyon for either Fulham or Al-Ain. Sadly, right after scoring the goal of the season so far (video below) and getting up hopes to get called up for Brazil again, he got his back injured.

                        Alain Traore is the main reason why Lorient is where they are now.

                        Wissam Ben Yedder of Toulouse already scored 5 goals this season, only some Swedish dude from PSG has got more. Rumours are that Deschamps will give him a chance soon in friendlies.

                          Marseille 2-2 PSG

                          Gignac is a ******* legend, he's opener was brilliant. Marseille was a bit better side on the first half. Although Zlatan's both goals were class, I think Mandada couldv'e done better with both of them. Second half was pretty dull, Gameiro had a good chance to win it for PSG but did lulz instead. Marseille were happier with the result as after last weekend no-one thought they could stand a chance against PSG.

                          Lorient 1-1 Lyon

                          Lyon took the lead with an offside-goal. Aliadere equalized in the second-half. Lorient, Bordeaux and PSG are still unbeaten so far.

                          No changes in the TOP 4, but it got really tight as PSG at second is on 16 points and Toulouse at 7th on 13 points. Ben Yedder scored again as Toulouse drew with Valenciennes, making it 6 goals already. Stade de Reims beat Nancy and are now 5th, making it harder for Lorient to look like the surprise team of the season.

                          Awesome season so far.

                            PSG are now on top after beating the surprise team Reims 1-0 after playing like ****.

                            Marseille had a good game against last place Troyes but managed to **** up all their chances while Nivet scored the only chance Troyes got. Making things even worse, Gignac got injured and will be out for atleast two months with a fracture on his leg. Marseille are now pretty much hoping not to get raped every week and get some defending players in January as there are injury problems there too and half of the squad will **** off to Africa for the Cup of Nations soon.

                            Toulouse beat Evian 4-0 to continue their awesome start to the season.

                            1. PSG 19
                            2. Marseille 19
                            3. Lyon 18
                            4. Toulouse 16
                            5. Valenciennes 15
                            16. Montpellier 8
                            18. Sochaux 7
                            19. Troyes 5
                            20. Nancy 5

                              Latest trends in the Ligue:

                              In other news:
                              After calling L1 "a little boring", Joey Barton gave an interview, in english...with a french accent. He's been at Marseille since summer. He's a tool, but a legend. The ultras love him too.

                              What's been going on:
                              Everyone have been ****. I haven't updated this thread because Marseille has been extra-****, in both L1 and in Europa.

                              1. Lyon 31
                              2. OM 29
                              3. ASSE 26
                              4. PSG 26
                              5. Valenciennes 25
                              18. Sochaux 15
                              19. Troyes 8
                              20. Nancy 8

                              Top scorers be Zlatan **** with 13 goals already, Gomis with 10. Then Ben Yedder of Toulouse with 9 and Aubameyang (ASSE) with 8 goals. I'd be surprised if the last two guys won't move to a top club in January or in the coming summer. ASSE has been massive last few weeks and the gabonese dude has been amazing for them.
