FFW 2014/15 Ligue 1 Team of the Year


After handing out the individual awards, it’s time to reveal our 2014/15 Ligue 1 Team of the Year. The FFW writers all voted for their choices, the players with the most votes in each position were chosen for the team. Maxwell of Paris Saint-Germain, Andre-Pierre Gignac at Marseille and Lyon’s Maxime Gonalons all narrowly missed out on a place. Here […]

Gradel at the Double to Cap Off Superb Season #FFWTOTW


That’s it. All done. All sorted. 38 rounds finish with the traditionally chaotic multiplex; ten simultaneous games, 32 goals, one new stadium being opened, one match stoppage, multiple fireworks and a trophy presentation. It’s a lot to keep up with, and that’s before our correspondent on Twitter realised that the multiplex they were watching didn’t include two of the games. […]

Payet Masterclass Leads Marseille to Lille Victory #FFWTOTW


37 down, 1 to go. And at the end of the penultimate week, almost all outstanding issues look like having been resolved a week early. After a 2-1 win at Montpellier, PSG have sealed their third straight Ligue 1 title.

The big match of the weekend was the first Derby du Nord to take place at the Stade Pierre Mauroy. Lille had been hoping to relegate their rivals […]

Javier Pastore Dazzles for PSG in the Parc #FFWTOTW


A goaltastic weekend, as things become increasingly interesting at both ends of the table. At the top end, Lille were the victims of PSG’s post-Barcelona-humiliation backlash, as the Parisians won 6-1. Lavezzi, who scored three, and Cavani, who notched a brace, have found their level, it seems. Lyon remain level on points with PSG after winning a relatively miserly six-goal […]

Classy Zlatan Keeps Cup From Corsicans #FFWTOTW


The main match of the weekend was of course the Coupe de la Ligue final. A romantic, heart-rending match between those two terribly hard-done-by teams who have been so badly treated in recent weeks by the LFP (let’s not shed too many tears for PSG who, along with the equally indignant Marseille, are boycotting Canal + because of their broadcast […]
