On paper, Paris Saint-Germain has one of the best squads ever assembled, but behind the scenes, something just isn't right and it could cost them the UEFA Champions League title and one of its superstars. On the final episode of PSG Talking in 2021, I'm joined by French football expert and CBS Sports Golazo correspondent, Jonathan Johnson, to discuss the first half of PSG's season, Kylian Mbappé's future, Mauricio Pochettino difficulties, and more! To kick off the show, I bluntly ask Johnson who is to blame for PSG's lackluster first half of the season? Is it the manager's inability to get the most out of one of the best squads in Europe? Is it the players who appear disinterested the majority of the time? Or, is it the fault of the sporting director, Leonardo, who put the whole thing together? Next, I ask JJ about Pochettino's future and whether or not Zinedine Zidane could replace him in the French capital in 2022. One issue that is brought up when discussing Zidane potentially managing PSG is his Marseille roots. Johnson explains the rivalry between the two cities and gives his thoughts on whether it might keep him from taking the job at the Parc des Princes. Just recently, Mbappé gave an interview to CNN after being crowned the Best Men's Player of the Year at the Glove Soccer Awards 2021. In that interview, the PSG superstar was asked about playing with Lionel Messi, his desire to win everything with PSG, and the rumors linking him with a move to Real Madrid. I ask Johnson what his biggest takeaway from the interview was. To wrap up the show, we talk Champions League and discuss what it might take to defeat Real Madrid in the Round of 16 and whether that might convince Mbappé to stick around in Paris for another couple of years.

    PSG Féminine Overcome Drama and Keep Title Hopes Alive

    48:34

    One Paris Saint-Germain team has already defeated Real Madrid 6-0 this season on aggregate, and it ain't the men. On the latest episode of PSG Talking, I hand over hosting duties to Mikko Kapanen from PSG Fan Club Helsinki to discuss the latest news surrounding PSG Féminines. Joining him on the show are Alfonso Mitch from PSG Fan Club Chicago and Vale Gallardo, a passionate supporter of PSG and the women's game. The show begins with the panel discussing how they started following PSG Féminines and the conversation transitions into last season's Division 1 Féminine title and a busy summer transfer window where the club had to replace several outgoing players. Of course, the situation between Kheira Hamraoui and Aminata Diallo, which made headlines around the world, is mentioned and the trio discusses how that bit of drama affected the club and led to the 6-1 defeat to rivals Olympique Lyonnais. To conclude the podcast, Mikko, Alfonso, and Vale look ahead to the UEFA Women's Champions League quarter-final where PSG faces a difficult tie against FC Bayern Munich. See if PSG can advance past the German giants by checking out the tournament on YouTube.

    Bring on Real Madrid; Champions League Draw Reaction

    1:12:27

    Paris Saint-Germain could be credited with the demise of FC Barcelona, and now, they set their aim on another La Liga giant in the UEFA Champions League. On this episode of PSG Talking, Tyrone Taylor hosts and is joined by James Teague, James Carter, Eduardo Razo, and Ed to discuss a chaotic Champions League draw. Up first, we react to UEFA completely botching the draw and then blaming it on some third-party vendor. PSG initially drew Manchester United, pitting Cristiano Ronaldo against Lionel Messi, but then it was discovered that teams that shouldn't have been in the same pot were, the entire draw was scrapped and a redo was ordered. After the second draw, PSG drew Real Madrid, the club Kylian Mbappé is rumored to be heading next summer. Next, we go around the horn and give our prediction for the tie against Real Madrid. Will the removal of the away goals rule hurt PSG? Is Real Madrid peaking as a team too early? Can Neymar Jr. and Sergio Ramos return from injury to propel PSG to victory despite a lackluster midfield? Finally, how will Mbappé handle his contract situation leading up to the highly-anticipated matchup? With the January transfer window about to open, should PSG look to add a player or two to reinforce its midfield? Could a managerial change be in the works? Zinedine Zidane is available and is very familiar with Los Blancos. We wrap up the show by giving our final thoughts on the Round of 16, including Ed's prediction that PSG's former manager, Thomas Tuchel, will go down to Ligue 1 side Lille OSC.

    Champions League Draw Prediction

    1:31:22

    The holiday season is upon us and soon, Paris Saint-Germain will be gifted their opponent in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. On the latest episode of PSG Talking, Tyrone Taylor hosts and he's joined by fellow contributors James Carter, John Olangi, and Eduardo Razo to discuss PSG's win over Club Brugge, the upcoming Champions League draw, and other team news. Up first, the panel breaks down PSG's 4-1 win over Brugge. With second place already secured in Group A, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé both recorded a brace as PSG cruised to victory. The guys wonder whether the attack functions better without Neymar Jr. The next topic up for discussion is the Champions League draw where PSG could potentially face Liverpool FC, AFC Ajax, Real Madrid, FC Bayern Munich, Manchester United, or Juventus FC. There are so many storylines, including Messi vs. Cristiano Ronaldo if PSG draws Manchester United. There's the potential PSG could face Real Madrid with Mbappé having already signed a pre-contract with the La Liga giants. Find out which team our panel believes PSG will draw in the knockout stage. The show concludes with some talk about potential transfers, the unreliability of Marco Verratti, PSG's talented youngsters, and the removal of the away goals rule in the Champions League.

    Glamour and Punishment

    48:57

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, it's not easy being a Paris Saint-Germain supporter. Sure, you have a star-studded squad and endless amounts of cash to sign more players, but between injuries, coaching drama, and unrealistic expectations, the club is constantly making headlines for all the wrong reasons. On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by Guillaume Delaporte to discuss PSG's 3-1 win over AS Saint-Étienne, Mauricio Pochettino's future at the club, injuries, and the UEFA Champions League Round of 16. Up first, we break down the win over Saint-Étienne at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. The offense looked better, but the defense was beaten once again by a diagonal pass into the box to wide-open attackers. Sergio Ramos did start and despite the goal given up by PSG, we were impressed overall with his performance. During the match against ASSE, Neymar Jr. went down with another ankle injury and had to be carried off the pitch. The extent of his injury hasn't been released by the club yet, but we question whether he should have been on the pitch in the 88th minute with PSG in full command of the match. Speaking of injuries, we also discuss Marco Verratti's injury history and whether PSG needs to sign a midfielder in January if they can't rely on their world-class maestro. Next, we discuss Mauricio Pochettino and whether PSG will sack him for Zinedine Zidane. With so many superstar players in Paris, it would make sense to bring in a high-profile manager who has the resume to command the respect of the dressing room. Finally, we wrap up the show by talking about the Champions League and who we want to see PSG play in the Round of 16.

    More Mbappé Drama and What The Newcastle Takeover Means for PSG

    48:10

    We're in the thick of the international break and if you're like me, you're counting down the days until Paris Saint-Germain is back in action. Luckily, we have something to help you get through the next few days. On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by Guillaume Delaporte and Ty Taylor to discuss the fallout of Kylian Mbappé's interviews with RMC Sport and L'Equipe. There's also the interview Mbappé's mother gave to Le Parisien that seemed to contradict some of what the PSG star said. Up first, we dive into the comments from Mbappé, which are nicely summarized by Sporting News. We learned that the player did ask to leave PSG and that the only club he has eyes for is Real Madrid. Guillaume and Ty give their thoughts on the situation and hypothesize how Mbappé's comments might have been received by Nasser Al-Khelaifi, PSG's president, and Leonardo, PSG's sporting director. The Mbappé contract saga has been lingering for at least a year, if not longer, and his comments cleared up a lot of confusion supporters have regarding timing and what has really been offered to him. He also confirmed he said some not-so-nice things about Neymar Jr., which we also discuss. Looking ahead though, the footballing world is still unsure of what Mbappé will do, and his mother only complicated things late last week. In an interview with Le Parisien, Fayza Lamari told the publication (via ESPN) that "we are talking right now with PSG and all is well. I spoke last night with Leonardo. Will we reach a solution? One thing is clear. [Mbappé] is going to give everything until the end to win the UEFA Champions League." As we discuss on the show, Mbappé's decision will likely come down to PSG's performance this season and also Real Madrid's. If the France international clicks with Neymar and Lionel Messi and PSG win the Champions League, he may extend for another two years. If the super team implodes and Real Madrid looks like the better project, Mbappé will likely bolt on a free transfer next summer. We conclude the Mbappé segment by putting a percentage on whether he will sign an extension with PSG and whether the supporters will boo him at the Parc des Princes. Getting away from the Mbappé drama for a second, there was some monumental news in the world of football. Newcastle United FC has new owners! Much like PSG with Qatar Sports Investments, Newcastle will be majority-owned by an investment fund (Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, or PIF). How will this change the landscape of football and should PSG be worried about competition from Newcastle in the transfer market?

    Reaction to Mbappé Bombshell Interview

    45:42

    If you thought things were bad at Paris Saint-Germain following the loss to Stade Rennais last weekend, well, Kylian Mbappé dropped a bomb on his way out the door for international duty. On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by James Teague to discuss Mbappé's interview with RMC Sport and L'Equipe in which he confirms he did ask to leave PSG and so much more. Up first, James and I give our initial reaction to the interview and our take on the revelation that Mbappé asked to leave for Real Madrid at the end of July. Why did he wait until there was a month left in the transfer window and why did he choose now to do an interview? Should PSG have sold Mbappé last summer when there was no progress on his contract extension? The conversation continues with us discussing whether Mbappé is using the media to change the narrative around his contract situation. Having already been jeered at the Parc des Princes this season by PSG fans, Mbappé appears desperate to come across as he tried everything to help his hometown club even as he lines up a move to Madrid. Regarding the interview with L'Equipe, Mbappé continued to burn bridges at PSG. He admitted to calling Neymar Jr. a "tramp" for not passing him the ball. He also expressed concern over comments made by club president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who said that he wouldn't let Mbappé leave on a free transfer. Overall, he painted the picture that PSG is a prison and showed other potential transfer targets that if they sign a long-term contract with the capital club, they better be prepared to see out the entire deal. In typical Mbappé fashion, he left the door open ever so slightly for potentially remaining at PSG—even though we all know that's a lie but again, Mbappé doesn't want to tarnish his image. "If I was told that [Lionel] Messi was going to play at PSG, I wouldn't have believed it," Mbappé told L'Equipe. "So you never know what's going to happen." So, what does this all mean? We conclude the show by debating whether or not Mbappé could be sent to Real Madrid in January when the transfer window opens, or if PSG would send him to the reserves since he can't control his emotions when a teammate doesn't pass him the ball when he feels they should. One thing we know for sure is, PSG didn't sanction these interviews. Mbappé went rogue and created drama at a time when it really isn't needed. Just last week, PSG defeated Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League, and instead of talking about that or what Mauricio Pochettino needs to do to maximize the squad's potential, we're talking about Mbappé drama.

    Messi Masterclass Sinks Manchester City

    27:52

    When Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, admitted that he didn't know how he was going to stop Paris Saint-Germain's front three of Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi, and Neymar Jr., many dismissed the comment, but as it turns out, he was right. On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by James Ridge from the PSG Unrestricted podcast to discuss PSG's 2-0 win over Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League. If you're a PSG supporter, you know it's difficult to find insightful commentary, in English, about PSG, so make sure to give them a follow and subscribe to their podcast. We begin this episode with James sharing his overall thoughts on the win that wasn't as convincing as the scoreline might indicate. PSG was put under pressure by City for most of the night, but as James states, it was a real statement of intent for what is to come throughout the rest of the season. Next, we highlight the midfield trio of Idrissa Gueye, Ander Herrera, and Marco Verratti. They were instrumental in the performance and without their defensive determination, City could have gone on to win this match. Gueye stood out especially with a goal in the eighth minute, but later in the first half, he was on the receiving end of a reckless challenge from Kevin De Bruyne. The City star only received a yellow card for the tackle but we discuss whether he should have been sent off immediately. Moving on from the midfield, we address the performance of PSG's three superstars: Mbappé, Messi, and Neymar. While Messi did score his first goal since arriving from FC Barcelona, the performance from MNM didn't live up to expectations. What changes does Mauricio Pochettino need to make to unlock their potential? Later in the show, we praise PSG's defense, which stood strong against City's waves of attacks, and debate whether or not Gianluigi Donnarumma has won the starting goalkeeper role over Keylor Navas. We wrap up the show by having a laugh at our La Liga friends who had a difficult week in the Champions League and I ask James about how he became a PSG fan and if he's seeing more PSG kits in England.

    Real Madrid's Tired Tactics Fail in Pursuit of Mbappé

    1:04:53

    Paris Saint-Germain finally has its most complete squad of the Qatar Sports Investments era, but supporters will have to wait to see how all of the pieces come together because it's international break time! Luckily, we have just the thing to pass the time. On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by Ty Taylor, Matt Gooding, and later in the show, Carl-Oscar Källström joins all the way from the Swedish wilderness. The panel of esteemed PSG experts shares their thoughts on the Kylian Mbappé transfer saga, the arrival of Nuno Mendes, missing out on Eduardo Camavinga, and potential formations Mauricio Pochettino could deploy this season. Up first though, it's all about Mbappé for the first half of the show. With Real Madrid rumored to have offered €200 million for the 22-year-old who will be out of contract at the end of the season, we're left to wonder if this was all a waste of time and a PR exercise from Los Blancos. We also debate whether PSG can convince Mbappé to sign an extension or if they'll regret not accepting an offer for their most prized asset. We also spend a few minutes discussing PSG's new left-back, Mendes, from Sporting CP. While we admittedly know very little about him as a player, the highlights on YouTube have us very excited. One player who didn't arrive in Paris was Eduardo Camavinga from Stade Rennais. The 18-year-old midfielder made the move to Real Madrid and we discuss why PSG didn't push harder for one of the most promising youngsters in world football. We wrap up the show by discussing the optimal formation for PSG this season with everyone agreeing that three-at-the-back is the way to go. We also answer a few questions sent in via the PSG Talk Discord server, including why Real Madrid fans are so awful.

    Haaland Rumors and the Plan to Replace Mbappé

    1:07:21

    The eyes of the footballing world are upon Paris Saint-Germain. With time running out in the summer transfer window, what will they do with Kylian Mbappé? On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by Carl-Oscar Källström and Mel Brennan to discuss Real Madrid's bid to sign Mbappé with a year left on his contract, how PSG should replace Mbappé, and the UEFA Champions League draw. Up first, it's the topic everyone is talking about. According to reports, Madrid has offered PSG €180 million for Mbappé, which at the time of publication, has not been accepted and is unlikely to be enough to get the deal done. We discuss Real Madrid's transfer tactics, the figure we believe PSG would accept, and our prediction on what the club will ultimately do with their prized asset. Of course, if PSG sells Mbappé, it's a very real possibility that Les Parisiens could reinvest that money immediately and on Friday, one notable name emerged as a potential candidate. According to ESPN, Erling Haaland could be on the move to the French capital if Borussia Dortmund receives an offer of around €200 million...the same amount PSG is hoping to sell Mbappé for. Another angle to the Mbappé saga is the fans, especially the most passional Ultras who make their voices heard at the Parc des Princes. They've already whistled at Mbappé once this season and we discuss what the atmosphere could be like if the 22-year-old remains in Paris for one more season. We wrap up the show with some Champions League chatter. Once again, PSG finds themselves in the "Group of Death" with Manchester City, RB Leipzig, and Club Brugge. Does the schedule play in PSG's favor and which big clubs could fail to reach the knockout stage?
