Hello ! I would like to know what you think about this french team, the PSG.
They're first of Ligue 1, and fought Bayer Leverkusen 4-0 in quarter finals of the UEFA Champion's League.

Do you think they can win ?
Do you like this team ? Yes ? Why ? No ? Why ?

Thanks you !

What I would like to know is why has a city the size of Paris only got one team? And if they only have one team why haven't they got a bigger stadium?

They got Paris FC, in Division 3 and the Racing Club of Paris in Division 6. Nobody invested in these clubs, so they won't grow and will stay in these bad divisions.

The Parc des Princes is an old stadium, built a long time ago (1897) and was renovated in 1972. I would like to know too why the stadium isn't bigger, it easily needs 30 000 more places... Will ask to french friends.

IMO they're the best team in the world not named Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund. Unfortunately for PSG all of those teams except City will still be alive in Champions League after this round (funny how I can say that with such confidence after only one leg--no close contests involving any of these teams).

Ibrahimovic has long been my favorite player in the world so I might be a little biased....

A team that sold its history and culture for money

Good points all around. The team seems to be better this season than last, which I questioned was possible with so much roster money invested in one position (Only 1 striker plays at a time).

While I agree with them being sell outs, the club was created in 1970 so not much history to begin with

I know I heard rumblings of financial issues last year but they seem to be doing fine now. This Champions Leage season they are right there with Barcelona. Only behind Bayern and Real.
