Zinédine Zidane is always the most favoured.he really deserves it!
seb is commonly well accepted , which is for sure.
Olivier Panis is only on one list. maybe it is because TOYOTA's poor performance this year. ;)

In the general classement (all mixed age), he's 11th, behind all the football players. Amelie is 4th, what is very good !!! (only behinf zidane, henry barthez !!).
In fact it's a top 30, and there are 4 tennis players on: seb, amelie, then...arnaud and nico escudé. ;)

Welcome Val ! :)

(hehe, Vale a des concurrentes maintenant ! LOL)

Hey Val! Welcome here!

I watched a TV series about sports poeple and they once talked about Zidane (I like him since France won the World Cup 1998), they said French people take Zidane as one of the most important Frenchmen in modern times. Zidane is very popular in France. Huge posters of Zidane are around Marseille, and they write "MADE IN MARSEILLE"!!! Same as Seb!

Here, Zidane = God.
The difference between seb and zidane, it's their accent. Zizou has the accent of marseille, not seb.

No wonder that Zidane always tops the list, the man certainly can play!
But it's nice to see that the French haven't forgotten about Grosjean either!

It's very nice that Barthez is so much rated in France because internationally his reputation is unfairly very low. What makes him so popular in France? Does he have a great personality?

06-20-2004, 06:36 PM
I dunno him either, but then again I don't watch a lot of football, only big things like what's happing now, how do u say that in english EC?? I dutch you call it EK (Europese Kampioenschappen) and WC (??) in ducth WK so every match of the Dutch team..
