Ligue 1 is the most exciting title race in Europe at the moment

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden contends that Chelsea has better chemistry in midfield than PSG.

The French are not known for being particularly good at suspense. We are quite a predictable bunch as my British wife will often remind me.

Our back catalogue of films consist of many a twisted love story with a psychological edge, our best writers philosophize and give social commentary and our general elections are a one horse race where politicians make predictable comebacks. However our football is different. We've done suspense pretty well over the last few years, even more so this year.


There's reason to hold out hope that Garcia's full FIFA report will be released

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti reacts to the news that Michael Garcia lost his appeal to FIFA regarding his ethics report.

You may be bored stiff already by the reporting on FIFA, their ethics investigator Michael Garcia and German judge Hans-Joachim Eckert.

You may be among those who jumped to the conclusion that all football governance is corrupt, there is no way out and that rather than reading this, your time is better spent doing something more valuable, like looking up players who made dubious fashion choices in their youth (here's Ivan Rakitic. ... Enjoy!)

If that's the case, I don't blame you....

The Europa League needs to change current format to gain more interest

ESPN FC's Craig Burley joins Alexis Nunes to discuss the Europa League draw and which British sides need to take this competition seriously.

The Europa League just got interesting. After months of preliminary rounds and a long group stage, we're into a straight, two-legged cup competition, and it looks brilliant.

There are echoes of the past in Celtic's tie with Internazionale. There may be glimpses of the future when promising Borussia Monchengladbach face Sevilla. There are 32 teams of varying quality and stature and, unlike the Champions League and, in many cases, their own domestic leagues, almost all of them have a chance of winning....

Jeremy Menez is finally fulfilling his potential at new club AC Milan

Employed in a false nine role at AC Milan, Jeremy Menez is finally showing what he is capable of under Filippo Inzaghi.

A formal announcement had yet to be made. It wasn't official that the next coach of AC Milan was to be Filippo "Pippo" Inzaghi. But days after dining with Silvio Berlusconi at his residence in Arcore on May 31, evidence emerged to indicate a future was being built around the former striker as he was being let in on their recruitment plans.

Pictured with CEO Adriano Galliani in Ibiza in Spain, it was clear they weren't there on holiday. Sat around a table with them at the restaurant Es Torrent was...

Where does Thierry Henry's legacy fit into the pantheon of French football?

Former Arsenal and France striker Thierry Henry has announced his retirement from football as he prepares for a career in the media.

Now that his career is over, Thierry Henry, 37, will come home. He will move back to where he belongs. No, it is not Paris or its suburbs where he was born and grew up and where his family still lives. It is not Monaco, where he started his incredible career at age 17. No, home for Henry is London.

Of course, he spent eight great years at Arsenal and has a statue at the Emirates. He is the club's greatest-ever player, its top goal-scorer (228), its biggest legend and, in my opinion, the best player...

Altidore's Sunderland effort is laudable but maybe he should move on

The ESPN FC crew react to Jozy Altidore's shocking miss against West Ham, in a Sunderland career where he's scored only two goals in 69 Premier League appearances.

Two minutes before Sunderland's kickoff Saturday against West Ham, a post appeared on the A Love Supreme message board with the topic, "Today is Jozy Altidore's day," followed by the text, "He will win this for us today. His time has come. Haway Jozy."

Just over 50 minutes later, after Altidore had tied his feet in a knot when presented with a tap-in from three yards out, someone else posted on the same thread:

"Love him, but let's face facts: He's rotten at football."

Moments later, on another...
