I must profess, I am becoming more respectful of French soccer. Division 1 has impressed me in the last two years and I enjoy several of the teams. Marseilles is a great team and I think Runje and Drogba are outstanding, plus, Mido and Maira (I can't spell at all) is pretty good. I am indecisive about the cup, but I will support them. AS Monaco is another team that truly demands respect. Rothen, Giuly and Morientes plus Roma is alright. Lyon is good but I haven't followed them and Auxerre is alright too, I am awfully glad that Cisse is Liverpool bound!
I must also give props to Arsenal, what an outstanding display of dominance. Plus, they are not even full of the elite stars of the game. Their line pales in comparison to Real or Juventus or even teams like Chelsea, Manchester, Roma, Deportivo, Monaco and Munich. I have no problem saying that Henry is drive and leader that pushes that team and he would be the same anywhere he went. I am not a big fan but he is my player of the year, he was unstoppable and if you don't include some of he performances in the CL he was impressive all year long.
