I would love to talk with you in French but unfortunately I did not do so well in French class at school. I am an Englishman coming to Lille to enjoy my first game in December - nothing to do with Joe Cole, I just like watching LOSC! I am planning to buy tickets online - will they post them to England for me? It also says Canal+ is offering 25% off tickets (OGC Nice, December 21st) - is anyone willing to share the code with me? Where would you recommend sitting, of the available seats?
I notice in another topic someone asked how Yohan Cabaye is getting on - the answer is very well! He is very well regarded in England already, and is seen as a good signing. Gervinho on the other hand is struggling in a poor Arsenal side... Hopefully he will find the form he showed at LOSC.
Thank you! At home I am a Portsmouth supporter, so am looking forward to seeing some nice football for once!
Welcome here! Happy to read that u enjoy watching Lille games. we feel very lucky cause not so long ago (80ies & 90ies), we were struggling every year just to stay in Ligue1. After some too long years in Ligue 2 between 1997 & 2000, we have begun an incredible improvement of results and keep showing great spirit as always. This has been materialized by an astonishing 2010-11 season with Ligue1 title & French cup.
21st of December vs OGC Nice, expect the weather to as cold as in England for same date. Our new arena 'Grand Stade Lille Metropole' is not yet opened (next summer) so we will welcome you in our athletism pitch 'le Stadium'. If you do not want to stay there as an ice statue for winter time, I strongly recommend you to book tocket in 'honneur' tribune or 'presidential'. For sure, if you want to enjoy the supporters kop atmosphere, you should book in North tribune and bring your warmer clothes.
Thanks for the news concerning Cabaye & Gervinho!
Good for Cabaye, even if Newcastle is not as bright and shiny as it has been in the past.
Gervinho will come back to his best football after a while. He took time to show his talent & to become efficient with us back in 2008-09 days.
Cheers to U,
