The current season in France will definitely go down in history.

On the other hand, the failures of Monaco and Toulouse, which were determined to compete in European competition. As a result, resignations of coaches and new heroes of the French championship.

Monaco’s fail is especially epic. The previous season, the team finished second in the standings and qualified for the Champions League. However, because of the ill-conceived transfer campaign, this time the Monegasques did not show even half of what was expected of them. After half of the Ligue 1 season, they are in the relegation zone, and, which is doubly insulting to the fans, this situation is completely reasonable.
