Goal difference of 52+ does help Monaco's case though

true that.

meanwhile, Nice is locked for that CL spot which is a great achievement, Lyon is doing their best to gift that spot to Nice.
They've lost 3 of their last 4.

my wild guess is Bakayaka, Bernardo Silva, Mendy, Lemar, Sidibe, Mbappe, Carrillo will all have offers this summer.
Are they a selling club now anyways? I can even see some mid table PL teams putting offers on table for Falcao.

PSG 0 - 0 Toulouse. Only saw parts of it but understandably less intense than in midweek. Monaco stay top by 3 points.

Possibility that Jardim could replace Wenger at Arsenal? If I was an Arsenal fan and had to go for a shrewd and original option, I'd go for him. He's very pragmatic and tactically flexible - they were a pretty robust and very structured team the last few years and definitely not pretty to watch a few years ago, but this season he added a bit more flair players to the squad and now they're flying. Such tactical flexibility is probably something Arsenal fans are crying out for at the moment. I think he has all the hallmarks of being a great manager, so I just hope he doesn't come to the Premier League! Barca looking for a new manager potentially.... a good punt I'd say.

Anyway, Ligue 1 has its fair share of decent managers. I hear Bielsa is going to manage Lille next season, and on top of that you have Jardim impressing at Monaco and the equally impressive Lucien Favre at Nice. There's more to Ligue 1 than just PSG and this season is proving so.

What's the deal with Monaco these days? No longer backed by a wealthy guy so got a cracking youth setup or good scouts?

How attainable are their star players? Could we throw a lot of money at them and get one or two?

Surely this is the summer window that Lacazette finally moves, another great season for him goalscoring wise. Wonder where he ends up? Would love it if we got him.

I Was at the match it was pretty much over after 15mins, they was awful

When you look at the results against the teams they want to be competing with

Lyon 3-1 Marseille
Monaco 4-0 Marseille
Marseille 1-4 Monaco
Marseille 1 - 5 PSG

Its clear theres still a lot of work to do

Decided to watch a bit of European football for a change and have watched some of this game and yes, Mbappe looks some player. Would imagine the likes of Madrid, Chelsea and City would be in for him.

They don't need the 'extra' money but will slap a big price tag on Mbappe and Lemar (their most attractive assets) in the summer. I assume a lot of mid table and top 4 clubs would love a player like Lemar and Mbappe will be a guaranteed 20 goals a season striker soon. He's 18.

Liverpool would not be able to get Mbappe, I'm afraid. He's destined for the Barca's and RMs.

I would put Bernando Silva up alongside those two in terms of being an attractive asset, think all three of them will be sold for nothing less than £50 million.

I'd agree Mbappe is destined for the very top, but it may not be the greatest of moves for him to go to one of those clubs yet. I've seen reports we tried to sign him last March before he signed his first professional deal (for a small training fee), we'd have no chance now.

He will be going for €60-80m if he leaves this summer, but I hope he stays there for another season or two to develop further and without the added pressure of a big move.

True. B Silva should be another one garnering interest from almost all the top clubs.

Ligue 1 is the best conveyor belt of talent in Europe right now. Ridiculous amount of brilliant young players coming through. Mbappe, Augustin, Lemar, Kimpembe, Dembele, Coman etc. and then you have young established players like Laporte, Varane, Kante, Rabiot, Griezmann and Martial. Safe to say that France is the place to be if you're a top international scout.

We made a paltry offer 2 seasons back, I think. Then City made a 40mn Euros offer last season. Monaco rejected both and made him a pro with 1mn Euros signing on bonus. We have absolutely no chance now.

Nice came back from 2-0 down at home to draw 2-2 vs Caen last night, and Marseilles won 3-0 vs Angers.

Monaco at home vs Bordeaux later, with PSG away vs Lorient on Sunday.

As soon as Lacazette was subbed off, any attacking edge Lyon had, was lost. You could painfully see them towards the end trying to push on, getting a bit of possession only to be completely clueless what to do with the ball reaching the final third.

Some shocking crosses by their left back, players running with tunnel vision to nowhere.
Hm. Hm. Sure.

It was funny to see Lyon fans turn on Ghezzal. He's almost violently disliked there now. I guess running down your contract does that to the fans. Still what a shit thing to do for a club he grew up at. Completely fucked his performances as well. No confidence whatsoever. This season should have been his breakthrough.
