    It's boring. Referees are too severe and kill the game, coaches are too defensive, and the winner is already known (Qatar Saint-Germain).

    Well I do watch when PSG is playing the likes of Monaco, Lyon etc, but overall I do find it boring because the football isn't great as La Liga, BPL and its not a good tactical watch as Serie A. Also with the likes of Marseille, Lille and Bordeaux in decline along without the pull factor of Ibra playing, french football isn't great atm.

    I do think like both of you.. Referees are ****, players aren't real professionals and don't train that hard, pitches are disgusting,stadiums are empty.. You really don't know how lucky you're seeing great matches every week lads..

    My mate has gone to the game between Paris and OGC Nice tonight, I don't know guess if you took the money out of Paris it would be more interesting league.

    I don't thinkmits nearly as bad as some people make out, that said, it is quite bad.

    The continuing failure of clubs like Lyon, Monaco, Marseille, Bordeaux to put up any kind of challenge, even when they seemingly to have a decent enough set of players.

    I thought it was a good match between Paris and Nice tonight, didn't realise Balotelli played for Nice.

    Lyon dominated that league for years before PSG were bought out so it's hardly a new thing.

    Seeing Falcao suddenly start scoring for fun again after 2 awful years in England doesn't give the best impression of the league, but I won't pretend i've watched any of the games. Is it even televised in the UK?

    BT Sport broadcasts it.
