Prize Guess the Score: cock-a-hoop Chelsea, rock bottom SAFC and Eric Roy

Jake: 'Monsieur Salut must be in a bad mood again - no prize this time'

French Fancies: hail Lille and – nearly – Patrice Carteron’s Dijon

Image: FC Lille Lille’s 2-2 draw at Paris Saint-Germain last night was enough to bring them the cup-and-league double – they had already beaten PSG in the final of the Coupe de France – and a promise by the club president Michel Seydoux to throw a “huge party in this marvellous city”.
