HISTORY

Association Sportive de Monaco Football Club commonly referred to as AS Monaco (or simply Monaco) are a French-registered Monegasque-based football club. The club was founded in 1924 and will play in Ligue 1, the top tier of French football in the 2013-14 season. The team plays its home matches at the Stade Louis II located within Fontvieille. Monaco is managed by Claudio Ranieri and captained by Andreas Wolf.
Though based in Monaco, the club is regarded as a French club, as the club plays in the French football league system, and because the principality of Monaco is not a member of UEFA. Monaco is one of the most successful clubs in France, having won seven league titles and five Coupe de France trophies. The club has also regularly competed in European football having been runners-up in both the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and UEFA Champions League in 1992 and 2004, respectively.
Monaco enjoyed success in the 1970s and late 1980s during the managerial tenures of Lucien Leduc and Arsène Wenger, during which the club was amongst the leading lights of European football. Monaco's traditional colours are red and white, and the club is known as Les Rouge et Blanc (English: The Red and White). Monaco is also a member of the European Club Association. In December 2011, two-thirds of the club was sold to an investment group led by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev.
Monaco new owner Dmitry Rybolovlev has invested big in bringing new top rated players likes of Radamel Falcao, Joao Moutinho and James Rodríguez at the start of 2013/14 season.

I think this club could have the potential to really piss me off - I liked it when we had the biggest wallet in the room. Still, I like what they are doing, in my lifetime there has never been a time with two French clubs capable of CL challenges, maybe that will change?

best sig ever.

I was thinking today about how if Monaco won the Champions League in 2004 everything could have gone a lot more different for Deschamps. He would have probably even have become Chelsea manager.

Actually stealing Lisandro from Lyon would be a great idea. But I guess he'd cost less than 50 million so they're not interested. (H)
