    Leipzig Loss, Tuchel in Trouble, and Elevator Error Traps PSG Players

    Leipzig Loss, Tuchel in Trouble, and Elevator Error Traps PSG Players

    The meme machine has been putting in overtime with the amount of content Paris Saint-Germain has delivered the past couple of weeks.
    On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by https://twitter.com/CoseEspinosa (Cose), https://twitter.com/psgtourist (Matt), and https://twitter.com/Ofthedoor1 (Guillaume) to discuss the 2-1 loss to RB Leipzig and whether or not Thomas Tuchel deserves most of the blame for the lackluster performance.
    The defeat means PSG could potentially fall to the UEFA Europa League if they don't win their remaining UEFA Champions League matches. Is now the time to bring in a new manager or should PSG let Tuchel finish out the season and replace him next summer? Who can fix PSG's "eye cancer" of a midfield? What are the ramifications in terms of Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. who are considering signing an extension with PSG? Also, did you know Marco Verratti is 28-years-old!?
    After a lengthy and very serious discussion about the issues at PSG this season, we close out the podcast with a somewhat comical story about https://www.espn.com/soccer/paris-saint-germain/story/4227026/psg-players-stuck-in-elevator-ahead-of-champions-league-clash-at-leipzig (several PSG players getting stuck in an elevator) for 50 minutes before they were rescued. We go around the panel and decide which players we would like to be trapped in an elevator wall. Don't forget to designate a pee corner!
    Anyway...if PSG don't turn this thing around quickly I'm turning this into a Cambridge United FC blog. Get it together, guys...

    Latest Injury News; Feud Brewing Between PSG and Brazil Over Neymar

    Latest Injury News; Feud Brewing Between PSG and Brazil Over Neymar

    Paris Saint-Germain has won seven of their last eight matches but things in the French capital are far from ideal. Injuries are piling up almost daily and the manager is very much on the hot seat. This season was always going to be difficult due to the ongoing pandemic, but no one expected it to be this bad.
    On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by French football journalist https://twitter.com/Jon_LeGossip (Jonathan Johnson) who recently joined CBS Sports to cover the UEFA Champions League and contributes to the outstanding https://www.cbssports.com/soccer/news/introducing-que-golazo-a-daily-cbs-sports-soccer-podcast/ (¡Qué Golazo!) podcast where PSG is a frequent topic.
    The episode begins with a discussion about Johnson's https://www.cbssports.com/soccer/news/neymar-out-until-after-international-break-with-adductor-injury-psg-coach-thomas-tuchel-confirms/ (recent article on injuries at PSG), the most devastating being https://psgtalk.com/2020/10/report-neymar-set-to-miss-psgs-next-three-games-due-to-injury/ (Neymar Jr.'s muscle injury) suffered against Istanbul Başakşehir. The injury will keep the PSG superstar out for the next three games and if it were up to Thomas Tuchel, he wouldn't play for Brazil during the upcoming international break either. There is already https://psgtalk.com/2019/10/the-latest-in-the-psg-vs-brazil-national-team-feud-over-neymar/ (bad blood between PSG/Tuchel and Brazil) from previous injuries Neymar has sustained and it will be interesting to see how this situation plays out.
    Up next, we discuss Tuchel's situation and whether or not he will make it through an entire season without being sacked. The offense has sputtered and while there have been quite a few injuries, there appears to be a malaise over the squad and he hasn't proven to be able to light a spark that is so desperately needed. Could Thiago Motta return to the Parc des Princes and solve PSG's issues?
    I also asked Johnson for his ideal starting lineup if injuries weren't an issue. Does he go with Marquinhos in midfield or center-back? Kean or Icardi? Speaking of Kean, Johnson offers some clarity to his loan deal from Everton FC.
    We conclude the show with a discussion about Kylian Mbappé and Neymar and whether or not they will extend their contracts with PSG and the outside factors that could determine their futures.

    Manchester United Recap, Kean Breakout, Champions League Outlook

    Manchester United Recap, Kean Breakout, Champions League Outlook

    With a host of injuries and https://www.goal.com/en-us/news/psg-sporting-director-leonardo-slams-tuchel-for-transfer-demands-/1qspz84gct0681cdu55vwixlph (turmoil between the manager and sporting director), Paris Saint-Germain faces perhaps its most pivotal stretch of games of the season so far.
    On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by James, Cose, and Guillaume to discuss PSG's two most recent results and we also look ahead to PSG's upcoming UEFA Champions League match against Istanbul Başakşehir.
    The show begins with a conversation about PSG's frustrating 2-1 loss to Manchester United in the first match of the Champions League group stage. The squad looked tired and devoid of ideas offensively even with Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. on the pitch together. We discuss whether the blame rests on Thomas Tuchel's shoulders and whether his days could be numbered as manager.
    PSG rebounded from that defeat to United with a 4-0 win over Dijon FCO—the last place team in Ligue 1. Tuchel was forced to rotate his squad due to injuries, which included starting Moise Kean who scored his first two goals in a PSG kit. The 20-year-old has loads of potential and this performance could lead to him taking minutes away from some of the usual starters.
    We then discuss Wednesday match against Istanbul Başakşehir where anything other than a win could lead to Tuchel getting sacked and the very real possibility that PSG may not qualify for the knockout stage of the Champions League. We go around the panel and get score predictions for this highly-anticipated match.
    The show concludes with a discussion about a surprising statistic. According to journalist Robin Bairner, since the start of the Qatar Sports Investments era (2011-current), PSG has conceded 18 penalties in the Champions League and only been awarded 7. Is this a case of bad defending or is there a conspiracy against the French giants?

    We Have 9 Midfielders and None of Them Suck

    We Have 9 Midfielders and None of Them Suck

    With so much attention being paid to Paris Saint-Germain's transfer signings, it's easy to forget that on the pitch, the reigning French champions have looked awfully impressive with four consecutive victories.
    On this episode of PSG Talking, I hand off hosting duties to https://twitter.com/Ofthedoor1 (Guillaume) and he's joined by fellow long-time contributors https://twitter.com/psgtourist (Matt) and https://twitter.com/CoseEspinosa (Cose). They're essentially the Thiago Motta, Marco Verratti, and Blaise Matuidi of the podcast crew.
    The show begins with a discussion of the 3-0 win over OGC Nice at the Allianz Riviera. PSG dismissed Patrick Vieira's side with relative ease in what was the first time we really saw Les Parisiens play close to their potential.
    The conversation transitions to PSG's 2-0 win over Stade de Reims at the Parc des Princes, with a brace from Mauro Icardi, and the 6-1 win over Angers SCO, which included Alessandro Florenzi's first goal as a PSG player since arriving on loan from AS Roma.
    Up next, the crew discusses PSG's transfer business. There are several new faces in the French capital and some old ones still remain (Julian Draxler and Jesé to name a couple). What can supporters expect from https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/soccer/2020/10/05/psg-signs-danilo-pereira-on-loan-on-transfer-deadline-day/114225044/ (Danilo Pereira, Rafinha), and https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11671/12089642/moise-kean-paris-saint-germain-sign-everton-forward-on-loan (Moise Kean)? Will they be major contributors or fringe players? Regardless, it will be up to manager Thomas Tuchel to rotate his starting lineup to keep all of the players happy now that he has quality depth at nearly every position.

    Champions League Hangover or Serious Issues at PSG?

    Champions League Hangover or Serious Issues at PSG?

    When Paris Saint-Germain supporters look at the Ligue 1 table, they find their team in the basement of Ligue 1 in 15th place. It's hardly what was expected following the club's first appearance in the UEFA Champions League final just a few weeks ago.
    On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by fellow contributors https://twitter.com/its_jcj (James) and https://twitter.com/psgtourist (Matt) to discuss PSG's disappointing start to the 2020-21 Ligue 1 season and what needs to change for the club to return to their dominating ways.
    The second match of the new season saw PSG welcome Olympique de Marseille in what was supposed to be a football match but instead turned into more of a rugby match with a dash of UFC thrown in at the end.
    Not only were several PSG players sent off, but Neymar Jr. claimed he was racially abused by a Marseille player. We discuss what should happen to Álvaro González even if it's not proven with a video that he did abuse Neymar.
    New signing, Alessandro Florenzi, made his debut against OM and he was one of the rare bright spots in that match. We discuss his performance and whether or not PSG needs to sign a left-back with Juan Bernat going down with a https://www.beinsports.com/us/ligue-1/video/psg-lose-juan-bernat-to-acl-injury/1545575 (serious knee injury).
    Speaking of changes, one move some fans would like to see is a new coach. Thomas Tuchel did get PSG to the Champions League final but with one goal scored in the opening three matches, serious questions are being asked of the former Borussia Dortmund boss.
    We end the show with our expectations of the new https://psgtalk.com/2020/09/amazon-prime-video-unveils-trailer-for-new-psg-documentary/ (PSG documentary) that was recently released in France via Amazon Prime Video.

    Bayern Munich Smash PSG's Champions League Dream

    Bayern Munich Smash PSG's Champions League Dream

    A season unlike any other ended on Sunday with Paris Saint-Germain falling 1-0 to FC Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League final.
    The loss was made worse as it was former PSG player, Kingsley Coman, https://psgtalk.com/2020/08/video-coman-scores-against-former-club-to-give-bayern-munich-the-lead-over-psg/ (who scored the only goal of the match) to give the Germans their sixth Champions League title in club history.
    On the latest PSG Talking podcast, which was recorded just minutes after the final whistle, I'm joined by fellow contributors https://twitter.com/_eddierazo (Eddie), https://twitter.com/Teague13 (James), https://twitter.com/IAmMelBrennan (Mel), and https://twitter.com/TyPoundSign (Ty) to discuss how PSG let this opportunity slip through their fingers.
    We start the show with initial reactions to the defeat and an examination of manager Thomas Tuchel's tactics and whether he got the starting lineup correct. Was there anything he could have done to counterbalance Bayern's relentless pressing?
    The panel also discusses the two penalty shouts that were not given by the referee. Was the right decision made in both instances or should Kylian Mbappé have been awarded a penalty in the second half?
    Speaking of PSG's French superstar, we discuss his overall performance and why he and Neymar Jr. were ineffective against Bayern's high defensive line.
    Looking ahead, we wonder whether major changes need to be made to the squad or if it only needs small improvements in key areas.
    We wrap up the show by answering a few Twitter questions and share our parting shots on what has been a historical season despite ending in disappointment.
