We resume our third season in France with work to do in both the League and the Champions League. Please feel free to catch up on the first half of the season here.
Lets get straight into the action and we start with the champions league as we face back to back must win games to stand a chance of making it through to the knock out stages.
Champions League - January 2026
Npt much more to say here its simple. We need to beat Dortmund and Inter and hope its enough. Its a tough ask.
An insurmountable task. We will look back at some really poor results against teams we should be beating. It evcentually left us needing results against top European teams.
The final standings are below.
Febuary & March 2026
With the Champions League dream well and truely over, our sole focus is ensuring we get back into the premier European competition next season.
We start back in Febuary after a domestic break throughout January and we need to pick up some serious points to mount a top 4 challenge.
Febuary was almost perfect with a loss to high flying Lille the only dropped points.
March although a shorter month was infinitley more difficult and it showed with only 1 point from 9.
We have goven ourselves a chance but we need the teams above us to start dropping some points also.
Always and exciting time of the year! Lets see what this intake has in store.
Not bad at all. Some very high potential players. The pick of the bunch appears to be Xavier Dubus. Lets have a closer look.
April & May 2026
We need to be almost perfect in the last 2 months to sneak into the top 4 having spent minimal time there over the season.
I must add that PSG, Nice and Lille have all but comfirmed their spots after breaking away from the pack slightly. Its between us and Monaco.
Its an unbeaten run to finish the season and I was really really pleased with how we played. Just those two draws that are frustrating. but we couldnt do much more than that. We have done our bit, but how did Monaco get on.
It came down to the last day and with Monaco playing Lille there was a chance of dropped points. As you can see they scored in th 81st minute to win the game and pip us to 4th place.
Final League Table
We miss out on the top 4 on the last day. That 81st minute Monaco goal was enough as we were in the top 4 on goal difference until then.
Its the Europa League next season.
As always at the end of the season I will leave you with the season review.
Thanks for reading.
