    It's Time to Go!

    When you've already said all that needs to be said, all you can do is echo Claude from AFTV. IT'S TIME TO GO!
    On this episode of The 1970, I'm joined by https://twitter.com/marcdamon9 (Marc Damon), as always, and we discuss yet another loss for Paris Saint-Germain and try to explain why Thomas Tuchel hasn't been sacked yet.
    We begin with that 2-1 loss at RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League, a result that currently has PSG in third place in Group H behind the Germans and Manchester United. Is the manager to blame for the lack of energy and questionable substitutions or are there simply too many injuries to overcome?
    The defeat to Leipzig means PSG are staring down the barrel of the UEFA Europa League and we discuss the implications of dropping down to the lesser competition, including a change at manager but who is the best option for the club?
    The show concludes with a prediction for PSG's upcoming match against Stade Rennais, which neither of us are overly confident about.

    Tuchel on the Hot Seat After Loss to Manchester United

    Tuchel on the Hot Seat After Loss to Manchester United

    Paris Saint-Germain's match against Manchester United on Tuesday night was supposed to be a chance at redemption. The Red Devils eliminated PSG from the UEFA Champions League in 2019 and their return to the Parc des Princes was a chance for Les Parisiens to prove that result was a fluke. Unfortunately, that didn't happen.
    On this episode of The 1970, I'm joined as always by https://twitter.com/MarcDamon9 (Marc Damon) and we give our instant reaction to discuss PSG's frustrating 2-1 loss United and discuss who is to blame.
    https://twitter.com/PSGTalk/status/1318661750418407424 (According to my followers on Twitter), most PSG supporters believe manager, Thomas Tuchel is to blame for the loss to the Premier League side and Marc and I agree but for different reasons.
    Marc believes Tuchel's inability to create a system in which Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. can thrive is a fireable offense. While I tend to agree with him, I think Leonardo, PSG's sporting director, should make a change to inject some optimism into the squad and supporters. It worked for FC Bayern Munich last season as they won the Champions League over PSG.
    Tuchel may keep his job for a couple of more weeks. PSG host Dijon FCO on October 24, and then travel to Turkey to play Istanbul Başakşehir F.K. That's a game PSG should win comfortably but if things go south, it's hard to imagine Tuchel continuing with PSG and the club's future in the Champions League this season would very much be in the balance.
    The podcast concludes with us answering questions from Twitter, including what we think of the rumor that a European super league could be a reality in the near future.

    Champions League Draw Reaction and PSG Transfer Window

    Champions League Draw Reaction and PSG Transfer Window

    After a rough start to the Ligue 1 season, Paris Saint-Germain has bounced back and strung together four straight wins. Despite the positive results on the pitch, there's plenty of drama swirling behind the scenes.
    On this episode of The 1970, which was recorded during PSG's 6-1 win over Angers SCO at the Parc des Princes last Friday, Marc and Ed examine the current squad and how being so reliant on Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. to score goals can be a bad thing. Has manager Thomas Tuchel become lazy in coming up with his gameplan, especially in Ligue 1 play, because he has two of the top five players in the world?
    We do know that Tuchel doesn't believe his team is as strong as last season and his recent comments about that have https://au.sports.yahoo.com/psgs-leonardo-rebukes-tuchel-comments-085958631--spt.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAFmRXDfUzaLX5XmOS_8ssVwsRsq92M1za2wN8BJDKERGl_RCMpCpkvsYha8ihSSAyZr-oxj_v2PxwAD-c6oBfA8Pc48m4zfCTC6DZE6X4iRP6MSh6JZUYqOlg5ODxLVvy3vNflKP5yAnwi1d_e9ogJIZpU-cbfxXNnnROhjX1oxp (not gone down well with Leonardo), PSG's sporting director. With the transfer window coming to a close on Monday, Les Parisiens are running out of time to make the important signings that will help them return to the UEFA Champions League final.
    Before the Champions League final, PSG must go through the group stage and after last week's draw, we now know that Tuchel will lead his team against Manchester United, RB Leipzig, and İstanbul Başakşehir. The two games against Manchester United should be very interesting considering https://psgtalk.com/2020/02/manchester-united-fans-took-the-news-about-di-maria-hating-their-club-as-well-as-you-would-expect/ (Angel Di Maria's history with the Red Devils) and the report that https://www.espn.com/soccer/soccer-transfers/story/4200213/man-united-set-to-sign-telles-from-porto-cavani-arrives-for-medical-sources (Edinson Cavani could soon suit up for Premier League club).
    The wrap up this episode by discussing potential what may happen on transfer deadline day and we answer questions from listeners.

    Fallout From PSG's Loss to Marseille & Neymar's Racism Allegations

    Fallout From PSG's Loss to Marseille & Neymar's Racism Allegations

    Any time Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique de Marseille get together on a football pitch, there's bound to be fireworks but last weekend, the latest installment of Le Classique crossed the line in more ways than one.
    Marseille's 1-0 win over PSG at the Parc des Princes was their first win over their rivals in league play since November 2011. The match was brutal to watch and included 10 yellow cards and five red cards. Referee Jerome Brisard lost complete control and towards the end of the match, there was a brawl, an https://www.espn.com/soccer/paris-saint-germain/story/4181548/ligue-1-to-launch-investigation-into-neymar-racist-abuse-allegation-sources (accusation of racism), and a video that appears to show Angel Di Maria spitting towards an OM player.
    On the latest episode of The 1970, I'm joined by https://twitter.com/MarcDamon9 (Marc Damon) and we try to sift through the fallout and make sense of it all. The loss to Marseille was PSG's second consecutive loss to start the 2020-21 Ligue 1 season and the lack of goals has us wondering if Thomas Tuchel's tenure in the French capital is coming to an end.
    We also give our thoughts on Neymar's allegation that he was racially abused by Marseille's Álvaro González. There's no video evidence as of yet to confirm Neymar's allegation but considering how upset he was and the fact he went to an official right away, I'm inclined to believe him.
    The episode concludes with us discussing if there should be fans at the Orange Vélodrome when PSG visits Marseille on February 7, 2021, or if it's too dangerous for the visiting players. We also give new signing Alessandro Florenzi some shine as his debut exceeded expectations and he proved he is a right-back who can put a decent cross into the box.

    Bayern Reflection, Messi Transfer Rumors, and Changes at PSG

    Bayern Reflection, Messi Transfer Rumors, and Changes at PSG

    Sometimes you need some time to properly reflect on a major event and that's exactly what Marc Damon and I did following https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/23/football/psg-bayern-munich-champions-league-final-spt-intl/index.html (Paris Saint-Germain's 1-0 defeat to FC Bayern Munich) in the UEFA Champions League final.
    You can listen to the https://psgtalk.com/2020/08/psg-talking-podcast-bayern-munich-smash-psgs-champions-league-dream/ (PSG Talking podcast) for an instant reaction to the loss but on The 1970, we dissect what went wrong for PSG at the Estádio da Luz on August 23. Did manager Thomas Tuchel make the right decisions when it comes to his substitutions? Why couldn't Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. step up when PSG needed a goal late? One thing became abundantly clear in that match against Bayern and that is Thilo Kehrer is not capable of playing right-back at this level of football.
    The football world came to a standstill a week ago when the news broke that https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/25/football/lionel-messi-barcelona-spt-intl/index.html (Lionel Messi wants to leave FC Barcelona). PSG are one of the few clubs who can realistically afford the 33-year-old and the rumor mill is churning out story after story about the possibility of him rejoining his friend and former teammate, Neymar, in the French capital.
    We wrap up the show by talking about the ridiculous criticism of PSG not keeping their best youth players, Thiago Silva's https://www.chelseafc.com/en/news/2020/08/28/thiago-silva-moves-from-paris-to-london (departure to Chelsea FC), and we answer listener questions sent via Twitter.

    PSG Join the European Elite With Champions League Final Appearance

    PSG Join the European Elite With Champions League Final Appearance

    Paris Saint-Germain booked their ticket to the UEFA Champions League final on Wednesday with an https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/18/sports/soccer/psg-leipzig-live-score.html (emphatic 3-0 win over RB Leipzig) at the Estádio da Luz.
    It's the first time Les Parisiens have reached the final of the prestigious tournament in their 50-year history and fans https://youtu.be/WsNhhYqhvUY (celebrated around the world) after the final whistle as did the PSG Talk crew. However, there's business to attend to and we're pleased to bring you a 1970 podcast.
    On this episode, https://twitter.com/MarcDamon9 (Marc Damon) is joined by fellow contributor https://twitter.com/TyPoundSign (Ty) and the duo break down the win over Leipzig and explain how PSG made it look so easy. It's been a long time coming for supporters and finally, with all the chips on the table, PSG elevated their play and Leipzig didn't even look like they belonged on the same pitch.
    No discussion of this match would be complete without giving Angel Di Maria his credit. The winger was suspended against Atalanta in the quarter-finals but he returned to the squad and was the Man of the Match.
    The podcast was recorded prior to the FC Bayern Munich vs. Olympique Lyonnais match but the crew rightly assumed the Germans would advance and they provide some thoughts on the final matchup and while Juan Bernat, in particular, will be up for this match. They also discuss whether or not Mauro Icardi should return to the starting lineup or if his limitations are too risky against a club like Bayern that did defeat FC Barcelona 8-2.
    Before that match though, let's just enjoy this feeling of reaching the Champions League final. There's a lot of PSG fans out there that have been following the club for a long time and never thought they would be in this final. This is a major moment in the club's history and we should embrace every second of it. Allez PSG!
