The French league has never really caught my eye. FSC has showed Ligue 1 games the past few years and I never really got into it.
Watching Lyon in the Champions League is good enough. And Monaco had a nice run 3 years ago.

bwahahahhahaha Spurs are so bad. Unreal. I hate Everton, but ****, gotta hand it to them....

I had a feeling Spurs would have a problem living up to the hype. But it's only been a couple of games. They can still turn it around. What I mean is, don't write them off yet. As to Everton I hope their current run of form ends two weeks from now in the derby...bitter blue bastards!

Well Spurs fans can be consoled with the fact that Arsenal lost today as well.
1-0 to Manchester City.

Spurs clearly miss Carrick.
That Man City/Arse game was hella fun to watch. Paul Dickov has still got it.

Totally agree here, Martin Jol should have started Zokora, as he is the only midfielder who comes close to Carrick on that team. When Zokora came in at the end it seemed to help their organization in midfield a bit more. Edgar Davids had a HORRIBLE game and showed no control with the ball. Inversely, Arteta and Cahill on Everton made a huge difference in midfield and made it difficult for Tottenham to start any attack, what's even more amazing is that they played with a man down for 60 Minutes!!!

So far, Man U, despite missing Scholes & Rooney are going to be the team to beat, unless Chelsea can put all that talent to good use tomorrow...

I think the guy Spurs miss the most though is their Captain. Ledley King. They've been shaky at the back and Dawson's play has clearly suffered without his normal CB partner.
Also, speaking of Spurs, they signed Mido yesterday.
Mido was good last year for Spurs and seemed to enjoy his time in London. Rome was a disaster for him. This move doesn't solve Spurs problems at CM, LW, and RB, but it gives them depth up front. And if you want to compete in 2 or 3 competitions you have to have depth.
