    Hi Christopher, thanks very much for your message. I am really pleased to hear that you enjoy my work, you have written some very good stuff too that I have enjoyed (especially the Jeremie Aliadiere piece!). Keep up the good work, I'll keep writing mine as long as you keep reading! Cheers,

    I've always known about Ligue 1 but haven't come close to following it as much I do with the EPL. If this counts, I used to play with the old Lyon teams on FIFA all the time during their title winning streak.

    Thanks Chris, I appreciate the praise. It's good to see more writers on the B/R team covering other top leagues around the world like you are doing with Ligue 1.

    You might want to root for OM on that one Christopher, to run us ragged and put us in a negative mindset, as our next game after the league tie is with St Etienne !!!

    Hey no problem, Christopher. It was an excellent piece. I wish it could get more play on BR. I posted it on Twitter, maybe that will help.

    Thanks, glad you enjoyed that one. :-)
