Eyes down, it's PSG window bingo

Best. Picture. Ever. (Pic: PSG official site)
The Paris Saint-Germain squad have been getting away from it all this week at a pre-season training camp in Austria.

As well as training hard in preparation for the new season, the lads have been engaging in a bit of bonding on the go-karting track and back at base camp, where they enjoyed a BBQ and a sing-song (above). Bless them, it must be like the world’s best-funded scout camp, I wonder if any of them will get their map reading badge?

Back on Planet Football, the transfer market continues to throw up more ridiculous stories than the John Terry trial, and with this in mind we’ve come up with this fun game, PSG WINDOW BINGO. When you end up accidentally reading a story too proposterous to be true, amuse yourself by seeing how many of the following you can tick off. Note: The Daily Mail is probably your best bet if you want a full house.
  • “Big-spending PSG/mega-rich PSG/variations”
  • “...bank-rolled by their Qatari owners...”
  • “...are set to embark on a massive summer spending spree”
  • “...as they bid to compete with Europe’s elite”
  • “...have the funds to compete with the world’s richest clubs”
  • “the French Manchester City”
  • “...were pipped to the title by unfancied Montpellier last season”
  • “...can offer [player] Champions League football next season”
  • “... have already signed the likes of Javier Pastore and Thiago Motta”
  • “Carlo Ancelotti/Leonardo will try to tempt [player] to France”
  • “PSG’s sporting director Leonardo has made enquiries about [player’s] availability”
  • “Ancelotti admires [player] from his time in England”
  • “Ancelotti knows all about [player], who he managed at Chelsea/AC Milan”
  • “[Player] is interested in being part of the PSG project”
PSG window bingo would also work well as a drinking game, though if you're playing drinking games while reading made-up nonsense on the internet it's probably time to re-assess your priorities in life.
