I agree with this. It proves that your German concepts weren't just a fluke as you've shown now with two separate leagues/countries that you understand how to create a suitable classic look for them with the design elements that you use.

One thing with the Lille crest is that you could stand to make the text just a bit smaller. Right now, the 'L's get to close to the outer circle which leaves some awkward secant-like white spaces. Love the kits though!

US Grenoble
The Union Sportive de Grenoble, or commonly US Grenoble was founded 1957 by the union of the two most important teams of the alpine town, the Grenoble FC and the Club Alpine Foot. In his nearly half century of history, the US Grenoble has hardly ever won anything just collecting some final of the National Cup. The history of the club is fairly recent, has spent most of its history in the lower divisions. The first appearance in Première Ligue is in 1984, but the adventure lasted just two years. The second promotion took place in 1993 followed by relegation in 1996. In these years the club is relegated to the third division, partly because of an economic disaster. After several years in the second division the club has finally made his return to the top flight in 2012, and since then has always managed to save themselves by getting several good placings.

The emblem of  US Grenoble has a modern shape with a yellow outline that echoes the color of the coat of arms. Inside, in addition to the initial "USG" and the full name of the team is the silhouette of the famous Alps that rise behind the city. Within them there is the flower, symbol of the city, and the whole is placed in front of the red and black stripes.

Kits
The uniforms of the club have always been red with black stripes. The colors are derived from the two founders of the club, black from Grenoble FC and red from Club Alpine Foot. Today the club is sponsored by the Novotel hotel company, while the technical sponsor is assigned to Kappa from the 2011 season.

AS Strasbourg
Founded in 1905, the Association Sportive de Strasbourg or simply AS Strasbourg is one of the former champions of the Première Ligue. The club became professional in 1933 and enter in the first division in 1948, in fact the destiny of the club has always been wedded to the history of Alsace. Like the region, Strasbourg has changed nationality three times and has a troubled history. Founded in what was then a part of the German Empire, the club from the beginning insisted on its Alsatian and popular roots, in opposition to the first Strasbourg-based clubs which came from the German-born bourgeoise. When Alsace was returned to France in 1919, the club changed its name from 1.FC Strassburg to the current AS Strasbourg. The only title arrived in 1985, after that the club was relegated into second division in 1993 and in third diviosion in 1997. The club came back in Première Ligue in 2001. Today the club play a very appreciated football and its academy is one of the best in the country.

The club crest is very simple and recognizable. His story, however, is much like that of the troubled club. The first crest had within it the stork, symbol of the city. The stork is the only element that has always accompanied the club. In the 90s it arrived to the present form, with the only addition of the star symbol of the championship won in 1985.

Kits
The club's nickname is "Les Rouges" because of their red suit. When it was founded, the AS Strasbourg used a blue shirt with white shorts. The change to red took place in 1912. After several years with Adidas, in 2010 Le Coq Sportif became the new technical sponsor. Hyundai's partnership start in 2013.

Saint-Etienne FC
The Saint-Etienne FC was founded November 18, 1911 by a group of young people who wanted to participate in the various tournaments organized at the time. The Saint-Etienne is one of the most famous teams and important of France. Winner of 3 Première Ligue, the first in 1938 and the last two in the new millennium, respectively in 2005 and 2007.

The 1968-69 season ended with the last place and relegation for the first time in the second division. After two years, the club were relegated in the third division. After being able to return to the top division in 1983 there were several ups and downs until the final stabilization in Première Ligue in 1990.

The club crest is very simple, inside there is the symbol of the city of Saint-Etienne, accompanied by a blue horizontal band representing the shirt and the initials SEFC. Throughout its history it has undergone little change. Worthy of note is the introduction of the blue band in the late '50s and the progressive modernization of the logo.
