"Our only goal was to stay in the top flight and in the end we are champions. I'm going to enjoy it because it will probably be the only time it happens to me."





Kinda want to know what Remi Gaillard will do to celebrate

A lot of pundits actually did predict Montpellier to be relegated this season. I've watched a fair bit of French football this season and i'm delighted to see them win the league.

Pfft, I won about 6 league titles and 4 Champions Leagues with them in Football Manager.

Always good to see a new team winning a title, although I doubt that PSG's new owners will be too happy at not winning the league after the amount of money they've spent.

Louis Nicollin became the Chairman in the mid-70s when Montpellier had dropped as far as the CFA and had amateur status. He eventually bought the whole club a few years later and and he is still there today as the sole shareholder. So congratulations to him!

Anyone but Bayern PSG

Delighted for them. Everyone should be happy that there are at least a few places where relative paupers can win titles with the right approach. Five different champions in five years and ten points separating the bottom club from the top half.

PSG can go die in a fire.

At least Mvilla if he comes to Arsenal won't be moaning about winning trophies seen as he just done it already lol

Yann M'Vila plays for Rennes who haven't won squat.

I've liked them ever since Valderrama played for them.

nice to see ex-portsmouth player John Utaka doing well for himself.

He scored two goals in the final game of the season against Auxerre to come back from 1-0 down and win the title.

.


14 points .

Either way, stats can serve any purpose. Bolton were closer to the CL places (33points) than Caen (36).Onlf for Wolves and Blackburn being so bad this season the gap between half way and relegation would have been less than France. Bolton were only 11 point soff a top half finish.

Nice to see them win it. Very refreshing. On the flip side, the relegation battle was mental. Before the days play, 8 teams were in danger of going down. Absolutely mental.

No prizes for guess what his nickname will be the first time he mouths off in an interview in England.
