PSG 1-1 Bordeaux: Not on song

Paris St Germain once again relinquished the leadership of Ligue 1 this weekend, only managing a 1-1 draw at home to Bordeaux on Sunday.

With Montpellier having scraped a 1-0 win over St Etienne the previous day, the advantage is once again with Rene Girard's charges.

I watched the first half of the Bordeaux game and the less said about it the better. Apparently it perked up after the break, but during the bit I saw PSG were struggling to break down a resolute but unambitious Bordeaux outfit.

After half-time Les Girondins took the lead. The Parisien back-line was less a line, more a zig-zag as Nicolas Maurice-Belay ran on to Obraniak's through ball before squaring for Chieck Diabete to slot home.

But as ever PSG didn't lack fight, and were level almost immediately. A clever ball from substitute Matthieu Bodmer freed Hoarau, who smashed the ball home from just inside the box. Bodmer has been out for a while due to injury, and hopefully he will reclaim his place in the side because when on form I feel he gives us something a bit different in the middle of the park.

All this on-pitch stuff is eclipsed by the amazing news that the PSG squad have recorded a song. The players and Carlo Ancelotti were in the studio last week singing the club anthem Allez Paris St Germain. If you don't know said anthem, penned in the 1970s by the imaginatively named group Les Parisiens, it's to the tune of Go West and features such inspired lyrics as "Go Paris St Germain! Play Paris St Germain".

The video, above, is one of the best things I have seen on the internet for some time, and begs the question which of our players would make good pop stars? I reckon Gamiero has the clean cut good looks and baby-face to be the new Justin Bieber (sorry Kev), Jezza Menezza could be Lady Gaga (unnecessarily flamboyant, stupid hair) while Carlo Ancelotti would be brilliant standing in for Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, or any other 1960s crooner. If you have any other suggestions let me know.
