Ah, it seems they've dropped the reality TV show to cover the costs thing. Too bad, it sounded like a solid financial plan...

NZ only has 1 pro team. Comparison with England (or NZ) is exactly what France should be going off if they want to get to the next level. As it is they're miles behind and no better than the Celtic nations. Let's hope the youngsters are better than the last lot


Yes, we are. 8 wins on 10 matchs over the last 5 years for an average score of 32-16. That's better.
And that's leaving aside that the 'celtic' nations had often not much 'celticness' about them...

In Topic: Is Toulouse in the 2016 League One ?

For a Welsh team to survive in SL, it must be based in either Swansea or Cardiff, small towns outside the heartlands

will always stuggle, (hope Wrexham prove me wrong) to support top level clubs,



...And big towns outside the heartlands will always strugle in non top level competitions....

The cap issue has been resolved for Toulouse now though, so comparisons to 2009 cannot be made. Toulouse could become full time and offer far more than they could have back then. A ridiculous situation really.


But... they won't. To become full time, they will need extra revenues. Extra revenues that can only be generated by finding new customers. New customers that can only be brought in if you provide them with an enough quality product which is not the League 1, nor the Championship.
The only way the club could become full time before entering SL would be if someone was willing to waste millions during a few years to pay players for playing in L1/Championship.
That goes for Toulouse, or for any other possible expansion market (english or not).
