    Rajkovic signs for Reims.

    Stade Brestois - Very nice logo. But the stadium is obsolete, with disparate and disgusting stands. Fortunately, a new stadium will be built and will take office in 2023. I think the club should have been green because it represents Celtic culture.

    FC Metz - Nerdy logo but the two symbols (dragon + Lorraine cross) make it elegant. The stadium is really obsolete. Fortunately, the stadium began its renovation. And it's very pretty.

    Dijon FCO - Nice and modern logo. Very recent stage, very simple, but the arborescent pillars, at the angles, bring a touch of elegance and personality. I think in Ligue 1, we need clubs that represent historic cities. Dijon is a city with an important history and is the capital of Burgundy, an equally important and historic region.

    AS Monaco - Very beautiful logo. Beautiful stadium that perfectly matches the rest of the architecture of the city and is different from any other. But I do not like the athletics track, which keeps fans out of the way. It is also a small stadium. People come little. There is no atmosphere. The Monegasques are so bourgeois that they do not care about football and all that is popular. They make more noise outside than at home.

    Girondins de Bordeaux - Classic logo, but recognizable by its enlarged V. Beautiful radiant stadium of whiteness, especially with its cladding that hides the frame, elegant, it looks like a real luxury room. Outside, the large staircase ramps, pillars and stands it supports contribute to the noble character of the city. The large number of pillars echoes the surrounding forest. A real success for cheap. Too bad his club is constantly zero.

    Angers SCO - Graceful and quite unique logo with a crystal inside. The stadium is rotten with disparate and ugly platforms. Fortunately, the stadium will be renovated and expanded. From the outside it will look like a shed... No personality. But at least they will be new.

    FC Nantes - Like Juventus, this club has replaced its logo with a symbol for mentally deficient. May * preserve us from this great evil! It's a shame because the previous logo was really beautiful, very rich. Nantes fans suffer a lot because of their absolutely stupid president. The stage has personality. It looks like a big wave, everything seems moving, elegant. The club spoke of new stadium, but the project was abandoned.

    RC Strasbourg - Very identical logo, with the small bell tower of the monumental Gothic cathedral of the city. It seems dragged by a cygogne, another symbol of the city. The red band comes from the city's coat of arms. The stadium is a maddening banality, but you know what? It will be renewed. Phew!

    Stade Rennais - Logo pretty, well done. Nice stage, but if it is not very noisy. The club has had a reputation as a loser for a few years, but it has just won the Coupe de France by beating PSG shooting-in-goal.

    Nîmes Olympique - Very nice logo that reflects the Gallo-Roman history of the city: the crocodile was its symbol at that time, until today, and the three arches are those of the famous arena of a city. The stadium, I like enough. It gives the impression of being long and narrow. And the stairs all around add to the elegance of the stadium. We are planning a renovation.

    OGC Nice - Beautiful logo (NICE logo !), and beautiful stadium that perfectly represents the city of Nice and its environment. The club is being bought by an English billionaire.

    Stade de Reims - Nice logo. Classic stade but quite pretty and quite new.

    Montpellier HSC - Very classic logo, but that's what makes it so charming. Stadium just as classic, except its grand stand that gives the impression of being very large. The affluence is absolutely derisory, even when the club was champion in 2012. The leaders plan to build a new stadium, because the first is in flood zone.

    Olympique de Marseille - Logo very pretty, very simple with the two initials enchassées in the same way as the NY of New York on the caps. Very impressive stadium with its huge roof.

    AS Saint-Etienne - Classic logo, except the tricolor star for their 10 champions won. Stage expanded and modernized, but rather classic.

    Olympique Lyonnais - The logo is largely inspired by the coat of arms of the city. The stage is strange with fine pillars as in the palaces, but loopholes as on the fortresses. But the shape is very pretty, and it changes a lot according to the angle from where we see it. The interior is beautiful, but I regret that the frame is not hidden because I find it ugly. Otherwise, the whole stadium is very beautiful. The original model was even more so.

    Lille OSC - The club takes the same direction as Nantes or Juve, with an extreme simplification of the logo. The pentagonal shape of the logo refers to a famous and huge citadel built to protect the city. The stadium is new but without personality: outer forms simply rounded; inside, the rails of the roof seem to squirm the stadium, and the upper stands are plunged in the shade, especially that the seats are gray.

    Paris Saint-Germain - The logo is quite nice, but it is too much of a toy brand. With all its spikes, the stadium evokes a terrible hostility. perhaps they represent the anti-provincial spirit of the Parisian elites. Inside, the stadium is classic but the turns are too far away. The stands are pretty pretty. We talked about aggrandissement but finally it did not happen.

    Marseille stadium is one of the best in the world. Absolutely iconic.
