The 1970 Podcast: Nobody Fought For French Football

The last time you heard from The 1970 crew was last March when Paris Saint-Germain defeated Borussia Dortmund to reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

Since then, that competition has been suspended and Ligue 1 has been shut down completely due to the coronavirus. Despite the lack of matches, there’s still plenty to discuss when it comes to the capital club, and joining me as always to break it all down is Marc Damon.

On this episode, Marc Damon and I reflect on the decision to cancel the Ligue 1 season now that we know the other four top leagues in Europe will complete the 2019-20 season.

Opinion: Government’s Decision to Shut Down Ligue 1 Was Wrong and Will Forever Change French Football

We then look ahead at what the next few months look like for PSG as they’ll face a long layoff with the Coupe de France final, Coupe de la Ligue final, and Champions League knockout stage to play in August most likely.

Then, we switch gears and discuss the latest transfer rumors. Mauro Icardi staying in the French capital appears to be close to being done as well as Alex Telles from FC Porto. Will PSG make additional signings and what positions need the most strengthening?

The last of our topics focus on a report from KMPG that looked at several indicators and announced that PSG is the ninth most valuable team in the world.

We conclude the show by answering a few questions sent by listeners via Twitter.
