Episode 1376: Scorning Neymar’s Duplicity, Talking Italian, Money Fights, Coveting Your Neighbour’s New Signing, Brexit And Identity
Last night Neymar was forced off the field with an injury that threatens to rule him out of the Champions League matches against Manchester United. But rather than sympathy, his opponents offer only scorn. Might this mark a fatal turning point in the story of Neymar’s French sojourn, and PSG’s chances in Europe?
Didn’t think #MUFC stood much of a chance against #PSG when draw was made. But United’s subsequent revival, injuries to Verratti (who was the only operational central MF!) & Neymar, and PSG’s ongoing failure to strengthen their midfield is making the tie look far more balanced
