Depends on Unai obviously but it's either him or Cavani up top. Would be harsh on Cavani if he was surplus to requirements, he was patient when Zlatan was around and deserves to keep his spot on the pitch. This is the main reason this transfer baffles me. We're expected to play Mbappé because we'll pay a lot of money for him but playing him now puts bags of pressure that he didn't have at Monaco.

I just think we could have waited a season. I fear that Mbappé won't have a great time in the early stages of his PSG career...

Neymar, Draxler, Mbappe and Cavani are starting for PSG tonight.

4-4-2/4-2-2-2?

Could even be a 4-2-3-1, I suppose.

When did they sign that new goalkeeper epic?

I've never heard of 'possibly?'.

Keeping an eye on the St Etienne vs Monaco clash this evening. Are St Etienne's fans boycotting the games or summat?

He has to be. The card should be rescinded too, but probably won't cos the player handles the ref after he's brandished the card.

Props on Turpin for getting the red out though. A lot of refs would have pussied out on that one. French ref on standing his ground shocker!

We were shite last night. I know Neymar wasn't playing and Mbappé was subbed shortly after the half-hour mark but if this is the level of performance we offer against someone decent then we don't have a prayer against Real imo.

Full-strength PSG beats full-strength Real based on recent (albeit Ligue 1) form, have faith. It's time for PSG to get the European monkey off their back and knocking Real out would be a great way to start doing that.

Thing is mate, the more Real are rubbish the more pressure we are under to knock them out. Mbappé and Neymar will supposedly not play until the game which puts immense pressure on their shoulders while our constant dying need for a CL semi-final berth makes us look desperate. A true big club wouldn't be overly bothered by a CL exit. To us, it's the only thing that matters given that we're going to win (and have pretty much already won) everything domestically.

Then again, we've never been knocked out of the CL whilst under the Qatari regime playing the 2nd leg at home so who knows. I can certainly see us scoring a few at the Bernabeu. Avoid defeat there and we have a chance.

Fair points mate - I hope you beat them, it's nice to see them struggling for a change.

They seem to be under the impression that they can click their fingers at the end of the season and summon Neymar so it would be funny to see him put them out, too.

Les Herbiers beat Auxerre 0-3 in the coupe de france, and they had a female ref don't 'chya know!
Also Marseille put 9 past Bourg Peronnas, so Swansea can't even claim the biggest result of the day!

Ligue 2 side Clermont had now France women's manager Corinne Diacre as head coach for several seasons. Despite being a backward country on many topics and doing the good things decades after everybody else, we're quite evolved on that front.

Tuchel to PSG seems to be gathering credibility, replacing Unai Emery in the summer. Two year deal reportedly.

Yeah. Would be fun to see Barca hiring Unai and them beating us again next season.

Wouldn't it?
