As the footballers get some much needed rest, French newspaper L’Equipe have a bumper edition looking at the French team and squad.
Crystal Palace star Yohan Cabaye is wheeled out to give a brief list of the things he likes and dislikes in life. It’s brief, but revealing nonetheless.
Cabaye likes spending time with his daughters, is a big fan of eating penne arrabbiata whilst watching a film with his girlfriend, likes sleep, NBA, family meals, and playing tennis whilst on holiday.
His favourite places in France are Lille, where he got a brilliant reception as a local boy on Sunday evening, and Corsica, and his favourite films are Django Unchained, Pulp Fiction and Training Day.
More interesting is what Cabaye doesn’t like. A major part of his list is West Brom’s ground. The Hawthorns has left such a mark on Cabaye, because of poor performances and results, that he’s picked it out as a place which irks him.
Other things on the dislike list include cabbage, ‘unbearable’ London traffic, aggressive people, liars, watching F1 on TV, and listening to French rap.
It’s ok, the football starts again soon.
