"proud to be a peasant"

With one of the puniest budgets in France's top division, Guingamp can't splash the cash like some of the mammoths — Qatar-owned Paris Saint-Germain being the prime example — it competes against and humbles from time to time.
Out here in one of the most unlikely backwaters of top-class football, in a Brittany town of 7,300 inhabitants, where fans attend games wearing jerseys marked 'Proud to be a peasant,' euros and cents are counted in before being counted out.

  1. "Peasant and Proud" makes for a good t-shirt or bumper sticker. I'd like to see "Robin Hood was Right"on one. But "Psycho Bitch" or something about cats seem more common.
