    Could be! Or two draws max!

    Ligue 1 is dying... Sad.

    In that case get yourself down to the bank to get all the money out of your account and then to the bookmakers and put every penny you own on it. Ask friends/family to loan you the money and say you'll give it them back in May when Ligue Un ends. You'll probably get 5-1 or 8-1 maximum odds on PSG going undefeated, what are you waiting for.

    Well that's not true as you cannot outpace anyone in that game.

    Nah.

    They'll win it very early, like last season, and then take their foot off the gas/rest a few players and get a couple of defeats at the end of the season. PSG players basically get an early holiday..

    It's not early holiday but depression symptoms generated by the Champions League

    As soon as i stepped out the metro three hrs before kick off the ultras were already having a go with the police and everything looked chaotic and unsafe as water cannons were involved, however it followed with a cracking pre-match atmosphere outside the velodrome and the match was somehow okay, a Marseille team with a good striker would have taken something from that match.

    PSG broke Tottenhams 58 year European record for consecutive wins at the start of a season.

    From the current Top 5 league?
    Rangers had a season where they went 18-0-0 like a century ago

    First time watching the french league tonight.
    Was shocked at how poor the quality of football was.
    Neymar running into blind alleys and losing the ball every 5 minutes.
    The lille team not being able to string two passes together.
    Pepe doing his best impression of danny wellbeck.

    Jonathan Panzo on the bench (Chelsea youngster they signed in the Summer).

    But yeah, they're struggling to really create anything substantial.

    Liverpool youngster Ojo is on the Reims bench. Didn't realise he ended up there, not really done much in his championship loans.

    Not sure I qualify 21 as a youngster. But yeah he's played a bit for them this season.

    The more games we go into the season, the more the idea of Monaco relegating, as ridiculous as it's, starts to not look very far away thinking.

    Monaco ended up losing. Henry yet to register his first win.



    Their problem was far more than Jardim as we all know. The board fecked up the team.

    At the moment there is no right man, the team ridiculously lacks quality. Key players are injured or completely out of form.

    I'm not necessarily convinced by Henry as a coach in a vacuum but it looks increasingly like an emergency and in these cases you don't want a novice but an experienced caretaker like Courbis or Dupraz.

    No one is going to fix this. I think Henry knew what he was signing up for, just as Monaco also must be aware there is no turning this around in a quick fix. They've completely gutted their team and haven't properly fixed what they've lost. I'm not judging Henry as a coach on this season just yet, it'd just be mighty good if Monaco actually spent some real money and showed at least a sign of intent to be back among the top dogs in the league.

    Think this was a stupid move by both parties. Henry had a good opportunity to stay under Martinez in a pretty cool job, you can travel around and watch/scout your players while improving your knowledge outside of being a head manager, you get to train the very best players in the world in your Hazards, Courtois and Alderweireld and get some experience under your belt without any massive pressure. Here his jump, brave as it was, seemed to be pretty stupid too, Monaco was in a freefall and I doubt many people have seen Jardim as the problem.

    It's not really criticism of Henry himself or a prediction that he'll be a shit manager, it's just what did he and the board expect to achieve? That he'll 'inspire' the players because he was a great player and they'll magically get 'back on track' despite being deprived of their core players year in year out? Ultimately it's on the board and I echo @BBRBB's sentiment about the caretaker manager.

    Monaco are really in danger. They are in free fall. Need a massive overhaul soon.

    He was, but like here he either gets an silly injury or can be prone to doing something a bit silly.

    No win in two games for PSG. A 2-2 draw at Bordeaux followed by a 1-1 draw at Strasbourg last night.

    PSG and Lyon matches have also been postponed this weekend.
