Only last month Lens defender Raphael Varane was profiled as one of our Ligue 1 20 for 20 – players to watch. In the piece it was mentioned how many clubs were keeping an eye on this talented youngster ready to make a move for him in the transfer market. Manchester United and Bayern Munich were the big names in contention, Sir Alex had been rumoured to be considering a £3m bid for the 17-year old.

The 3rd of March 2009 it was a simpler time, it was a happier time. Around 2pm on what could have been any other Tuesday I began my own football blog. “Gib Football Anorak” was born. There was no agenda for the site just a place to slap down my thoughts on the game we all love.

The first post had quite a few decent points, regardless of how bad the actual writing was. In one post I questioned whether Arsene Wenger should step upstairs from the dugout. Wondered why Aaron Lennon isn’t constantly practicing his crossing, and how good a keeper Ben Foster is while playing for Man United.

**Disclaimer** In no way is this an attempt to generate hits via having the keywords Eden Hazard, Arsenal and Transfer in the same article. Over the past few weeks questions about the future of Lille’s fantastic little Belgian have been flooding in via twitter and other avenues. It is time to put these to bed….for now.

This can’t be the best of times to follow Les Sang et Or your team sits precariously in the relegation zone while you look up at your biggest rivals on the brink of their first title since 1954. With the dark clouds circling overhead the Stade Felix Bollaert fans in the Marek stand are beginning to look towards the ray of sunshine coming from the centre of their defence.

After recording for 38 minutes there was a technical hitch and some of the greatest football analysis ever spoken was lost forever.

Being the consumate professionals that we are at the gibfootballshow we carried on.

Enjoy Rocco Cammisola, Chris Mayer and Ben Shave talking about Lazio and Serie A, the Belgian League playoffs, Eden Hazard staying at Lille and a preview of the Europa League games. Ben also answers some questions on Portuguese football.

As an extra bonus Andy Hudson brings us a report from Socrates Ryton as a whole host of bloggers travelled north for Northern League Day, not to be missed.

Hello..this week on the podcast I was joined by Chris Mayer from 6 pointer, Dave Bevan from the 72.com and Scott Johnston from the footyblog.net. We discuss this week’s four Champions League games. The pod answers how they think Chelsea will be lining up in the future, also answer whether Serie A is going backwards in terms of quality.

In part two, we take a look at our respective leagues of interest Chris (Belgium) Andrew (France) Scott (Scotland) Dave (The Championship) – and we pick out a team, a outstanding player and a young prospect to look out for. And we also pick out the most underrated players from the Premier League this season.

So plenty to look forward to, I hope you enjoy the show.

Oh and forgot to mention it on the show, but this week’s guest predictor is John-Burn Murdoch from the Trequerista site. Good luck John.

WELCOME…..Anyone who has stumbled across this site before will know that I have a strong love for French football, especially Ligue 1 and everything that goes with it. Recently I had a go at a solo podcast “Le Beau Jeu” was a chance for me to chat (to myself) about my love of football over the channel.

Through my twitter journey I crossed paths with a gentleman by the name of Chris Oakley, a man who had also recorded his own solo podcast as he got interested in Ligue 1. Both Chris and I are part of our own fairly successful podcasts gibfootballshow & Sound of Football. However these pods didn’t give us the chance to talk about Ligue 1 as much as we would like.

A plan was hatched at the recent NOPA awards, we decided to come together and form our own podcast concentrating solely on all things French. Inspired by Terry Duffelen and Jon Hartley’s “Bundesliga Show” we knew that working together was much better than going solo.

So the plan is to record the podcast after the last game in Ligue 1 and hopefully capture all the action that’s gone on that week. As the show grows we hope to bring you some top top guests from the world of French Football and we hope you enjoy the show.

Without further delay, may we present to you.
