PSG’s Player of the Month

Thiago Silva

Thiago Silva has been fantastic all season, in particular this month, which was vital seeing as we had three finals to compete in. He led us brilliantly in all three cup finals and he’s a true asset not only us but world football.

Maradona’s Verdict

This month had all the ingredients to become our toughest so I’m delighted that we pulled through and ended victorious. The Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue were both cups we should have won so it’s nothing too special to do so. However, winning the Champions’ League is what I’m truly happy about and it’s great to leave my mark on PSG so early in my reign.
Just Amazing! Great season mate! Congrats!
Awesome season winning Ligue 1 with ease and even the CL it looked simple lol :P congrats will follow this more closely :)


When the season began, many predicted Paris Saint-Germain to take the Ligue 1 title under Diego Maradona's reign.

However, what many didn’t expect was the manner in which ‘Le PSG’ would do so, winning four titles and breaking plenty of records along the way to become one of the greatest sides to enter the folklore of French Football.

Among those records is the amount of victories PSG totalled up on their way to Ligue 1 success, winning a total of 34 games and ousting the previous record of 26 set by Stade Reims in 1960, AS Monaco in 1961 and FC Nantes in 1966 & 1980.

Until this season, Saint-Etienne, Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais were the three clubs that held the most away wins in a season with 12, a figure decimated by PSG who won 18 of their 19 away fixtures in Ligue 1.

The Ligue 1 champions also boast the best goal difference the league has ever seen with +74, overtaking the previous record of +63 also held by Stade Reims.

Although PSG didn’t quite score enough goals to beat RC Paris’ record of 118 goals in a league season, Maradona’s men did maintain the best defensive record top flight football in France has ever seen, with Alex, Thiago Silva and Marquinhos all contributing to the small figure of 16 goals conceded this season.

The Parisian club hold the record of being the only French club to win both the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue in the same season, doing so for the third time in their club history.

On top of that, PSG have now won the Coupe de la Ligue the most times with four triumphs, being locked on three prior to this season along with Marseille and Bordeaux.

PSG also became the first French club to win the UEFA Champions’ League in their first and only go in the final, defeating Barcelona 3-0 in Lisbon, as well as becoming the first French team to win the so called ‘Treble’, a combination of the most prestigious domestic cup, league title and continental championship.

Even with the likes of Edinson Cavani, Yohan Cabaye and Lucas Moura all continuing to excel under Maradona, it’s likely the PSG fans nor the admirers of French football will ever see a side as prodigious as the one who conquered this season in the land of Napoleon Bonaparte.
Awesome performances and its been a pleasure to read so far keep it up!
They are some awesome records to break, congrats!

Fans’ Player of the Year

Edinson Cavani
To get 65 goals out of Ibra and Cavani is pretty good work and congrats on winning the CL in your first season! How are the PSG youngsters?
Wow! Cavani was impressive this season!
k1rups - Behind the big money signings, they do actually have a few good young players. Adrien Rabiot, Kingsley Coman, Alphonse Areola and Hervin Ongenda are easily the pick of the bunch

AAN - Yeah, he's definitely one of the best strikers on FM
Cavani has been great for you this season! 44 goals, my god.
