Im not disagreeing with that, I was just responding to you saying those are the only 2 teams that churn out talent in France. I never said France is better than Italy only because of reserves, although reserves are a huge part of their youth.
i was exaggerating to illuminate my point bro. but you still ignored what i said. its negligent to talk about reserves and france when you dont understand or even know the other reasons.
i dunno, how can say there are other reasons if you dont know what they are? its like saying "democracy is good b/c it improves economic relations with other countries, though that's only one reason out of many, though i dont know the others" wtf?

homie, countries are different. culture is different. history is different. federation is different. status quo is different.
so when you say "i read in the guardian or wherever that X was done in Y and it helped, therefore X can be done in Z and it will help", it's negligent and frankly uninformed.
