That sounds like rank bullshit. Ligue 1 has a parity issue more than it has a level of competition issue. Players who signed for obnoxious Saudi sums are already wanting to leave because the quality of play is pathetic and the atmospheres are even more pathetic. Ronaldo has never even played in Ligue 1, wtf would he know about the quality of play in that league vs. Saudi Arabia?
People don't have to play in France, or even play football to know that the French league is shit.

Also, the players that wanna leave Saudia Arabia, is cause of the lifestyle, not cause of the quality of the league.

the level of competition and the difference between PSG and every other club in the league... The quality of players of PSG and every other club and on field performances. PSG can play with 60% every game and they will still win the league, while in order to beat them you need some miracle goal, or a bunch of luck... Also, the tactics are horrible. Most of the league plays run&gun. Just have some quick wing players and sprint up and down. And the average defending ain't helping... Now, you could say that, well the Premier league also has one winner all the time, so why are they not shit? Cause other clubs are actually good and the players there are also pretty good... If you ask anyone, what would they rather watch, a game between Wolverhampton and Everton, or Nice vs Brest, 90% people would pick the first thing and it does not matter that Nice and Brest are 2nd and 3rd best teams in France.... Also, they are a shit league compared to other top leagues, not some Latvian league or whatever.... So yea, they are shit and i don't recommend wasting any time with it... The only enjoyment you get from watching it is falling asleep after a good lunch.

No one making a new thread for this garbage since 2017 and only 24 pages says a lot.

Hm, interestingly enough, PSG managed to lose as many French titles as City in England since 2016 (when Guardiola took over)

That's just funny.

I don't want to ask ignorant people to talk about their views on things they have no idea about.
Had the same discussion with some friends on Boxing Day where all PL games - on paper - were shit and irrelevant and they claimed that it was still better to watch than any random La Liga game or Bundesliga one. When I asked if they ever actually watched that and had any idea of what kind of football they'd see there, the response was that it never occured, so they pretty much admitted they had a useless opinion on something they shouldn't be talking about out of their asses.

So yeah, I don't care what anyone who's only connection is betting, FIFA video games and/or Fantasy (PL). I'd rather watch, or at least do some research.

Still don't understand why the fuck is Real Madrid insisting so hard on him. This guy is a cancer. I never denied his footballing abilities, but he's a shit person. Could be just an ego transfer, otherwise I think Real Madrid would be better without him.

He has the profile of a galactico which Perez always had a hard on for.

The only real concern in this league is for Marseille get a CL spot, nothing else matters.

Balogun numbers a bit underwhelming compared to last season, but at least Monaco is second in the league and nobody can take that from him. While Zirkzee don't have huge numbers either, Zirkzee has been ballin' most of the season, while Balogun started good, had a slump+injuries and now he is contributing positivly again.

I hope he gets the right pieces around him this summer. He clearly isn't a bad player.

Numbers aren't everything. In fact, they're close to nothing if you pay attention.

And paying attention is considered a disease these days...
