PSG Talking Podcast: Season of Optimism

Paris Saint-Germain might be having the best offseason of any club in Europe. From Kylian Mbappé signing a new contract until 2025 to new leadership at the club, there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic heading into the 2022-23 season.

On this episode of PSG Talking, I’m joined by Stu from Parisian Londoner (Instagram | YouTube) to discuss the many changes at the club that have taken place and what still needs to be done in order to win the coveted UEFA Champions League title.

While I am very optimistic about the season and look forward to the squad’s new direction under new manager Christophe Galtier, there are reasons to be concerned. The former OGC Nice and Lille OSC manager doesn’t have much experience in the Champions League and he’s never managed superstars like Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi, and Neymar Jr.

Up next, we discuss the possibility that Galtier will rely on PSG’s talented youth players to fill out the squad and actually give them playing time to show what they can do. We discuss the youth players we’re most excited about and how they could help keep PSG afloat with the FIFA World Cup scheduled to interrupt the season.

We then turn our attention to PSG’s superstars and predict what we might see from Mbappé, Messi, and Neymar Jr. Can the Frenchman take his game to the next level? At 35 years old, is Messi still a regular starter for PSG? And can Neymar rebound from an average season and finally lead PSG to a Champions League title?

To wrap up the show, we give our prediction on Galtier’s starting lineup and how many trophies PSG will win this season.
