France: the clubs in the 2009-2010 Ligue 1 season, with average attendances from 08/09.

Note: to see my latest map-&-post of Ligue Un, click on the following: category: France.

The 72nd season of Ligue 1 will begin on 8th August [2009].

Last season, under second-year manager (and 1998 World Cup winning defender) Laurent Blanc, Bordeaux ended 7 seasons of league domination by Lyon. The squad won their final 11 games to claim the 6th French Title for FC Girondins de Bordeaux.

This season, at Marseille, after a front-office shake-up that finds former Chelsea and Juventus defender Didier Deschamps at the helm, the best-supported club in France hope to claim their first national title since 1992. Lille and Paris Saint-Germain, who were 5th and 6th place finishers last season, will probably be in the race for the title, but it remains to be seen if last year’s surprise 4th place finisher Toulouse will remain competitive…after all,  the club from the rugby-intensive south-west of France barely avoided relegation 2 seasons ago. Their good showing last season was aided a great deal by 08/09 Ligue 1 leading scorer André-Pierre Gignac (24 goals). Here were the leading scorers last season in Ligue 1 {click here (espn}.
