Hey everyone. Sorry I haven’t been on here in a while. I haven’t done much, or watched much, French footy lately because I have been totally submerged in the political scene here in the United States. As you may know, we have an election in six days, and I am kind of a political junkie (as well as a former political consultant). Ligue 1 footy is my booze, but politics is my crack! And with this election being so important, I have just been writing non-stop about it.
I am planning on going down to Kentucky today to help campaign for Jack Conway, who is running against Rand Paul for the US Senate. So, between now and Election Day, I might be a little busy.
Anyway, I just wanted to mention that Ligue 1 Talk has been mentioned in France’s largest sports newspaper, L’Equipe. I would first like to thank Jerome Touboul, one of L’Equipe’s top football writers, specializing in Ligue 1, PSG and Brazilian football, for writing the article. I met him at the PSG games in Chicago and he was a really friendly person who showed great interest in our site. It was nice to see that France has some interest in Americans following their soccer as well.
And I would also like the thank L’Equipe for publishing our story. Hopefully we can become a larger part of the French soccer community, continuing to become a leader in providing the news about the France’s beautiful game in English.
I would also like to thank Inside Soccer in Canada for letting me do a write up on the current Ligue 1 season. I would also like to send a special thanks to Paul Hendren for getting in touch with me so I could do the write up.
Again, thanks to all that have supported this website for the last year and a half. I swear, after the elections, I will be back on board
