    I figured it was about time to start this thread with the season just around the corner.

    Anyone who wants in, please subscribe and indicate your team preference. Also, if we can spread the word around and get more people involved it would be a better experience for all considering the amount of vacant teams we had last season.

    A newbie here....I will take Lorient.

    Be prepared for some comedy, I know very little about French football but I am eager to learn.

    Hello all. You can count me in. Since Strasbourg is in league 2, I'll chose my team last, among the ones that remain.

    I bowed out last season due to the lack of activity, and I've not been around the France boards lately, but I'll play this season if all the teams get taken. As Montpellier seem doomed to stay forever in L2 I'll take Nantes.

    I'm not really sure what is involved, either. Taking teams isn't exactly fantasy soccer/football IMO.

    Take a look at the thread from last season.

    You predict results for each fixture, and you're awarded goals for picking them right. Your opponent is the same as who your team is playing in real life. Here, I'll do an example. I'm Nantes, so I'm playing Auxerre (not picked yet).

    The first thing to do is to take the list of the weekend fixtures and make predictions on them: here's an example using next weekend's first round of games.

    Auxerre 1-1 Nantes
    Bordeaux 3-0 Caen
    Le Havre 0-1 Nice
    Le Mans 0-0 Lorient
    Monaco 2-1 PSG
    Nancy 1-1 Lille
    Rennes 1-2 Marseille
    Sochaux 1-0 Grenoble
    Valenciennes 1-0 Saint Etienne
    Lyon 3-1 Toulouse

    Your opponent will also pick results. You get one point for picking the right result and an extra point for getting the score exactly right. Whoever gets more points wins and gets three points in the standings.

    So thus far we have:

    frasermc - Nancy
    Chims - Saint Etienne
    mamitchell - Lorient
    Neeto - Lille
    guignol - Grenoble
    toulousain - Toulouse
    blackjack - Nantes
    jpg75 - Auxerre
    Allez Chelsea - Bordeaux

    Pierre-Henri and Reignking want in but still have to choose eligible teams. Allez Lyonnais will probably play.

    If those three come through, we still need 8 more players. If you know anybody who would enjoy it, please send them a PM and invite them in. This game is no fun unless nearly all the teams are in use.

    I will be happy to do as much recruiting as I can until the teams are full, but I cannot do the standings and results each week. Somebody else will have to volunteer for that.

    And I'll take the team with some American on it...Monaco...

    My wife lived in CF for a bit, and I was hoping they would get promoted last year. Very close.

    Hey everybody, I'm back, sorry, I've been away on vacation quite longer than I expected. Anyway, if everyone agrees, I'm willing to do the table again, and I'm sorry I was not present when you chose teams.

    I'm willing to be any team, even l'OL.

    Though if Allez Lyonnais is taking them, I'll go with PSG (though if Carefree 95 wants that, I'll go with, hmmm, Rennes).
