The latest contribution in our supporter stories series is from Tim Russell, who tells how he fell for Saint-Etienne. He can be found on Twitter, @timmyruss and @portfcsandpit. Back in the late 1970s/early 1980s, the initiative of town-twinning (originally conceived to ease Anglo-French-German enmities and foster post-war reconciliation) was at the peak of its popularity. British towns caught a bit of continental glamour, city [...]
Europe incoming! Kris is joined by Rich, Phil and Conor to round up a fairly chaotic round of games in Ligue 1 and look forward to six French teams going into European action. OM get ready to play behind closed doors, PSG have new shirts for their trip to Liverpool, and Lyon might be rightly nervous about what will happen at the Etihad – [...]
It’s a full-house as Kris, Jez, Rich and Phil get together to review France’s performances in UEFA’s reasonably-successful-so-far attempt to make people take friendlies seriously. These included an impressive debut for Alphonse Areola, a goal for Olivier Giroud, a still wonky first-choice formation, and a lot of post-match celebrations as the World Cup was presented to the home crowd at [...]
As the transfer window slams shutTM, Kris, Jez and Phil try to work out who’s where and how the traditional big four – PSG, OL, OM and Monaco – have done this summer. Have they strengthened their squads, made necessary replacements, or just trod water? Phil’s been at a wedding and hasn’t seen any games, Jez forgets to mute his [...]

Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny faces an uncertain future at Arsenal, amid widespread reports that French outfit Marseille are aiming to offer the player a potential escape route from the Emirates in the coming weeks, if a deal can be agreed with the London club. The summer transfer window may have closed earlier for English sides this year, with the move [...]

Four teams have two wins in Ligue 1 so far – including both of the promoted teams, as Nimes and Reims make it clear that they aren’t just here to make up the numbers. Kris, Jez and Phil look back at an interesting weekend that saw PSG continuing to play the kids, OL being stymied, Marseille struggling against les Crocos, [...]

Patchy. The pitch at Parc OL was, to put it mildly, in less than satisfactory condition as Olympique Lyonnais welcomed Amiens for the start of the new Ligue 1 season. On a metaphorical level the surface also represented Bruno Génésio’s tenure as OL’s head coach; patchy. Under his stewardship there have been spectacular winning runs coupled with worrying winless streaks, [...]

A distress flare bounced in front of me and then between the legs of Didier Deschamps who had been warming up ahead of kick-off. Zinedine Zidane stood laconically next to him. A cheer went up away to my left from the Tribune Auteuil. Serie A had obviously made both French players accustomed to a little audience participation. Their reaction to [...]

The new Ligue 1 season kicked off with goals, goals, some more goals, and then yet more goals – 33 in all, including a seven-goal thriller between Angers and Nimes, two red cards, both promoted teams winning, some hilarious goalkeeping ricks, and Wahbi Khazri possibly shading the goal-of-the-week in the face of some very strong competition. Kris, Jez, Rich and Phil get [...]

After a short break, the team’s back together! Still giddy from France’s World Cup win, Kris, Rich, Phil and Jez mostly ignore the title ‘race’ to talk through who could make it to Europe, and which teams could be in trouble. They discuss the transfer market so far, bitch about TV coverage, and answer your questions along the way. If you have [...]
