Rooney, re-match and a distinct lack of rouge

If the PSG move doesn't work out, Wayne is planning to usurp Alan Sugar on The Apprentice
Paris St-Germain have been the subject of approximately 1,354,543 stupid transfer rumours this season,  many of which have been faithfully reported on this very blog despite clearly being about as truthful as your average politician.

But even by PSGT's low standards, talk of a €150million move for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is too preposterous to even comment on, except to say that I could see the England man fitting in nicely if he did move to the French capital. Ok, so he's unlikely to appreciate the grandeur of the Musee D'Orsay, or the tranquil beauty of the Jardin du Luxembourg, but given some of the allegations about his private life he'd probably enjoy a trip up to see the er, sights, of Pigalle.

Anyway, moving swiftly on the fixtures were released yesterday, and PSG will start the new season as they finished the old one, with a home match against Lorient. You can see a full list of matches here, but one thing that stands out immediately is that we go to Lille, Marseille and Montpellier in the first half of the season. Mettle will certainly be tested in those matches, but it could work to our advantage knowing we have them all to come to the Parc after Christmas.

The club have also been busy unveiling their new home kit, which you will notice is very blue but not very red. Personally I don't like it very much, but a quick vox-pop of Twitter users garnered a mixed reception overall. Let me know what you think and I'll add your comments:
