PSG Has Turned Cause for Celebration Into Mere Consolation

PSG’s big bet was geared toward becoming European champion,

that’s reflected in the relative apathy toward another Ligue 1 title.

PSG is going to win Ligue 1’s title.

It didn’t wind up happening Wednesday despite the opportunity,

it will drag out a little while longer. But what has been inevitable for months

The club will join Marseille and Saint-Etienne as the most successful in France’s history with 10 Ligue 1 titles all-time.

Eight will have come in the last 10 seasons,

it all feels like mere consolation. The club’s own supporters, spoiled as they may have become, aren’t happy.

On paper it all looked so great and promising. Lionel Messi. Sergio Ramos. Gianluigi Donnarumma. Achraf Hakimi.
