France Celebrates

Recommended Posts

On the 15th day of August a public holiday here. Paris and Lyon make the Champions League semi finals for the first time. On this Saturday Catalans are on top of the Super League and Toulouse Olympique lead the Championship. Interestingly PSG formed in 1970 whilst their German opponents Leipzig - arrived quite recently in 2009.A changing world.

I imagine the soccer and the rugby would make headlines , does the Catalans achievement get much recognition?

Quick tip for Antipodeans. This sentence would benefit from the inclusion of the word "Union" somewhere.

On the other hand, the use of the word "soccer" is spot on.

It would be great to see Lyon win it, of the final four. Anyone but PSG will do though.

Outside of Perpignan no

You said in another thread that Israel Folua was the only thing keeping them relevant. Yet they can afford, I think I heard $400 000 at short notice to sign him and he has now extended for another year. Jimmy Maloney and Sam Tomkins wouldn`t be cheap either.

Somebody is putting a fair bit of money into this Club and must have a fair bit of faith in them despite your pessimistic prognostications.

Hearing that USAP the Perpignan union team have received permission from the district council to have an 8000 crowd for their pre-season game next week. Their ground has a capacity of 15000.Who knows maybe Dragons can follow suit with a figure exceeding the 5000 in September when Leeds and Wigan come over. Fingers crossed.

Albeit Toulouse only lead the championship because they have played more games than the he 2 teams below them.

The dragons are allowed crowds but super league teams don't want to play games in france

The question if you read it isn`t really about Israel Folau but why you consider the Dragons to be irrelevant and yet in your last post you seem to be a supporter.
