re: GF accidentally stumbled onto PSG kit release in Paris - nvasil1
Makes sense, for Nike at least. That looks like the Champs-Elysees store near the Arc...I stood in a similar looking line there last year. :lol: Glad your girl was able to snag one for you :cheers:...

[quote]But then came Paris, who will now win it for the next decade...[/quote] As nice as that would be, it's tough. Monaco looks like they could be becoming trouble again. I think Lyon is the only one in the big leagues to string 7 together. Inter had 5, but they were helped by Calciopoli. ...

re: The Best and Worst from Ligue 1 - nvasil1
[quote]I have high hopes for Thauvin, but his attitude sucks. Then he ends up on a list like this. When we lose out on the Champions League by 2 points to Monaco, I just think if Thauvin could have put in better performances for his talent level, that could be us.

[quote]Jallet (Lyon)[/quote] I was happy he made the best XI. Underrated player and I was disappointed PSG let him go so easily. [quote]frick Thauvin though[/quote] This guy...I guess some players just don't live up to the hype, but damn, he doesn't even look like he cares. Don't Spurs still w...

That's pretty cool. I'm surprised they weren't on sale Saturday since they played their last match in them. I've never understood the rationale behind some kit release dates though....

[quote]That isn't a burn to me. Unlike most other fans I fully acknowledge that our ability to spend money is the catalyst for our success.

[quote]Why do you think Porto is the last team such to achieve what they were able to?[/quote] Because the Bosman ruling allowed Abramovich to buy Mourinho and 2 of his best players from Porto. It also allowed him to buy Drogba, Cech and Robben. All of this in one summer....
