Instead of clogging peoples timeline it will be much easier to do my #FF’s in a document so here’s what we will do I will try and put them into little sections to make it user friendly and of course link straight to their twitter accounts.
First things first if you follow me @gibfootballshow you need to follow my French alternate ego @FrenchFtWeekly – we have a weekly podcast and tweet all the latest news and gossip from Ligue 1, Ligue 2 and everything else Les Bleus.
New people I follow that I think you should too.

@LesRosbifs – Gav’s site is one of the most original on the net, his dedication to finding and breaking the latest news and stories is commendable. The hours spent on his research to finding English players abroad doesn’t get the credit it deserves.
