week 7 & 8 of ligue 1

awww our first loss of the season! and against auxerre who have been having a torrid time of late! and we even scored first and it was called back for ABSOLUTELY NO REASON. b*stards.
and my cutie pieroni has a bobo-like miss. bless his cute little head. we at least bounce back with a point in midweek and are still in the top half of the table. if we can remain there until christmas, i'd be amazed and ecstatic.

st. etienne
they may have had a great 3-0 win over psg at the weekend but then they also lose for their first time at midweek against nancy!! nancy who are in 18th place! and it breaks their run of 1534 minutes of not conceeding a goal at home. damn. no wonder janot is my french fantasy league keeper. what happened to that brilliant backline we saw against psg??

lyon & psg
so that leaves lyon as the only unbeaten team in france but these past two games have only been draws while psg at least have a win and a loss and are now 2 points behind lyon in the table. and how cute is landrin (psg) with his spikey hair lately? lyon should consider themselves lucky after that bordeaux game: 2 handballs in the box that were not called against lyon and their defense looked shakier than it has been all season.

poor poor monaco. they lose over the weekend and then deschamps quits which throws everything into chaos. all the credit in the world to them for managing a win in midweek. the game against nice this coming weekend should help them continue rebuilding. you just hate to see prince albert looking all unhappy in the stands, now don't you?

I really think the Champions League tires out Lyon. They are not invincible.

Go PSG! Not very consistent but A for effort.

I am so impressed with LeMans - it is very early, but a very good start.

Poor Deschamps. I know we haven't seen the last of him, but I'm sorry to see him disappear from Southern France & have to leave behind the cute little Monaco branded collared shirts. I hope he finds a new place for himself in an equally sunny clime so his tan doesn't fade.
