With last year great run of ours French teams in Europe and this year which is not bad either (with two teams in quarter of final of the CL and UEFA), look like we are catching up Germany at the UEFA coefficient ranking. After several years of scarcity, with poor europeans campaigns and teams which does not even reach the knockout stage of the CL, do you think the French league has reach back its level of the Nineties ?

The new great TV deal between Canal + and the French professional league, which should inject 200M€ every year for 3 years should permit to keep more easily and more longer the good players. Would it be enough to change the status of the French league from a reservoir of the "big three" to a respected league ? :rolleyes:

We should absolutely be ahead of Germany!! With Moanco & L´OM in the finals last year, Lyon in the quarterfinals this year (after beating Werder 10-2 on aggregate) and Lille & Auxerre still in the UEFA-cup!

We should be ahead of Spain to :)

hehe, look at the gap between you and Spain. You won't bridge that anytime soon.

But the Germans are within reach and to be honest, your teams have been doing better over the last 2 seasons. I think it's only a matter of time.

Nah, won't catch Spain, the coefficient are on 5 years and we have still 3 very bad year to erase....even with Barcelona and Real Madrid out, they still have some teams in european competition and they have scored more than us this year. Even if Lyon won the CL...
