Good player, lovely hair
I should start by apologising for the lack of new material on this blog in the last couple of weeks - it's been a bit manic at PSGT towers, but normal service should be resumed this week.
Since I was last with you the PSG have picked up two wins, a single goal triumph over that Luxembourg team in the Europa League, Nene scoring the decisive goal. And an impressive 3-1 come-from-behind victory over Toulouse which, if you believe the media, probably saved Antoine Kombouare's job. For now.

The transfer window has also slammed shut, closing out the barrage of rumours surrounding potential new stars heading to the Parc. Expect those to return in January, especially if there's been a change of coach. It was a pretty low key end to the transfer window in the capital, with PSG actually doing some sensible business, leaving us supporters free to snigger at Lille signing the new Magic Chris, aka Joe Cole. Teehee.

Anyway, arriving before deadline was Diego Lugano, captain of Uruguay and erstwhile defensive rock of Fenerbache. I'll be honest and say he's not a player I know a great deal about, but on the face of it he appears to be just the kind of guy we need (ie defender, leader, experienced). Plus he has excellent hair.

Mevlut Erding was the surprising non-departure, given that he appeared to already be half-way to Rennes last week. Perhaps his goalscoring cameo against Toulouse changed Leonardo's mind. "Both club and player have decided to continue their current adventure together," trumpeted the club website, sounding ever so slightly like a Famous Five book. I'm not Mevlut's biggest fan, but it's obvious that keeping him makes sense. We need someone who's prepared to play second fiddle to the wonderful Kevin Gameiro, so bringing one of the many touted big name strikers would have likely ended in tears for someone or other.
