I'm living in Montpellier at the moment and theres a great atmosphere here! Thousands of people watched the match last night (and last Sunday too) on a giant screen in the city centre! You can tell how much it means to them to win it



Going up later to watch the team with the trophy! People already waiting up there to get a good spot!

I watched their game against Auxerre this morning and you feared the worst when they went 1-0 down. Plus the second half of the game took forever to get played after 2 long delays caused by the Auxerre fans behind the Montpellier goal.

Nice to see a good story like this with Montpellier not just beating money bags PSG to the title but winning their first ever league championship in club history. What a great moment for their club and no doubt long suffering fans.

So refreshing to see a club like this win a league title. I am also so happy PSG did not win it.

Why do people dislike PSG so much?

Mars Bar I belong here. As do you.

Same reason they didn't like Chelsea and now City. Came into a windfall of money via a sugardaddy...

It is not so much that I dislike them, just glad that another title was not won by a team bought by billionaires. Just good for football i reckon in this age of mega rich clubs and obscene wages.

PSG were always a huge club though. It is a bit different.

Not too sure of their history, but I think they are a relatively new team compared to others in France. How many times have they won the League? It has been a while i reckon.

Yeah, they've only won the league twice, last was in the mid-nineties I think. They were formed as a merger in the 60's/70's so not that old and certainly not a 'huge' club other than being the capital team

Jesus, didn't realise their trophy cabinet was so bad. Have always viewed PSG and Marseilles as the big clubs of France.

I hated PSG long before they were rich

For a city the size of Cork, Montpellier is punching well above its weight in football, handball, rugby...

That's the reason they were formed, to try and get some competition going for the traditionally big clubs in France (Marseille, St Etienne,...)

Most people who follow football in Paris itself support Marseille btw.

Anyway, Montpellier's most famous fan didn't take long

I'm not certain on this, but this might have to do more so with geographical location, rather than them being rivals at the top of the league every year, as Marseille is the biggest city in the south of France.

It's pretty much that. OM fans love to get one over on PSG not because they're a big club but that they represent the capital. Marseille are the only big club of long standing, really. It's a long time since St. Etienne were challenging and Lyon are Johnny-come-latelies to the top of the table. PSG are a new club who have rarely won anything but have produced a few cracking players.

In Denmark the same happened.

FC Nordsjælland, a small team just north of Copenhagen with a ground of about 10.000 just won the league.

One of the goals scored by Andreas Laudrup, son of Michael.
