PSG won. Champion of France. Unfortunately this title means nothing and did not make anyone happy. Editorial.
Who believed in the joy of PSG players after the title obtained on Saturday evening? Who could swallow this bad salad? Never, nowhere, had we seen such a thing. A team wins a championship title and returns to the locker room without greeting their public. Players open a few bottles and have probably gone partying. Nothing original, since it’s what they do best in their life, the party! Neymar’s house is an amusement park, Verratti’s restaurant a trendy place on Friday evenings. Thursday evening is Le Matignon. Unless you are blind, you will see PSG players in brilliant form.
Obviously for this title, we had the right to a few Insta posts to virtually share the joy of the players. Modern means of communication that will delight pimply young people for whom football is not a club, a team, a stadium, a competition, a victory and a defeat, but just the life of a player, his goal, his gesture, his status, his record.
A Saturday night like any other, PSG was therefore crowned champion of France for the 10th time. On Canal+ Offset. Symbol of the anonymity in which lives our L1 and its champion. As we know, Canal abandoned football a long time ago. Rugby, Formula 1, motorcycling, everything is better than L1 now. No image of supporters celebrating the title outside the stadium. It was information, however, but it did not interest the broadcaster who no longer wants to broadcast. The next day, PSG captain Marquinhos went to Canal Foot Club, a show that keeps losing audiences. Nobody at the club told him that Canal was no longer the football channel? Marquinhos does not understand why the Park public is angry. Neither does Verratti. Mbappé even less. Neymar, he understood. He knows that no one loves him so he displays his contempt. “It’s useless to whistle, I still have 3 years of contract!” Who doubted for a moment that the Brazilian was anything but a common mercenary?
Half of the stadium comes without knowing anything about PSG
Messi, Ramos, must be wondering which club they arrived at. No one will dare to explain to them that it will soon no longer be a club, but just a show business. You just have to come to the Park just once to see what this stadium has become. Half of the stadium comes without knowing anything about PSG. Going to the Park has become an event in itself. We eat, we go shopping, we go out afterwards, we take pictures. Except that right now, part of the show is gone. For the leaders, the Virage Auteuil was part of the decor, it was included in the show. It was borderline in price. Go puppets, come, sing, be the jesters of kings in boxes!
The sports policy of PSG, this pile of stars which gives nothing and which has caused a new humiliation in Madrid, no one wants it anymore. Leonardo recognized “errors” without really saying which ones. Shall we give him a hand? Management of goalkeepers, recruitment of ending stars, acceptance of the Republic of Players… Mbappé is at the center of all attention. He carried the team so much this year that his departure would be seen as a disaster. But if Qatar manages to keep it, is that what will serve as a sports project? The truth is, everything about this business is hateful. Almighty Mbappé has been holding the club hostage for months. PSG should never have put themselves in this situation. Mbappé has stripped PSG to their knees! In which club, a player has already done this? They will tell me, Messi. Certainly. Well, when Mbappé has done for PSG everything that Messi has done for Barça, I will revise my judgment on what seems to me to be one more element in the proof that this PSG is managed in a catastrophic way.
Without a total break, this PSG will only be a champion of France who will always have cotton legs in the spring.
The majority of club supporters vomit this PSG there. The Ultras, the rich, the poor. There is no social fracture in this disgust. The fracture is elsewhere. And she asks a question. What do the PSG leaders want? Change audience? There is no club in the world that reaches the top by changing its public, by cutting itself off from its history, from its supporters. We can purify a stadium as we do the English, but we do not substitute one public for another. The supporters are therefore waiting for a speech. The definition of the new project. The President who hears nothing and listens to nothing, was not even present for the title of champion, will necessarily soon speak. He will carefully choose his medium and the questions.
He may explain who is leaving and who is staying… But what will really change? Without a total break, this PSG will only be a champion of France who will always have cotton legs in the spring. All those millions for a 10th title? Obtained moreover in a championship of a terrible weakness!
The only way to get over this system is to not let go. Come and be heard. To be there without being there. Spend three years whistling the Neymar employee if necessary. Jean-Marc Pilorget, legend of the club said in The Parisian, how this 10th title had brought no pleasure. Many of us understand this and have the same opinion. So don’t give up. To recover this club fallen into the hands of mercenary players and incompetent managers.
