Good But Not Good Enough: Why Paris-Saint Germain Still Lacks What It Takes to Win the Champions League

They are the team that almost always glitters brightest in Paris, a team befitting the city’s nickname “la Ville Lumiere.”
They have no worlds left to conquer inside their country’s walls, having placed a stranglehold on Ligue 1 shortly after Qatar Sports Investments became the club’s only shareholder in 2012. The cupboard is stocked full of Ligue 1 trophies, Coupe de France trophies and Coupe de League trophies, with a few Trophée des Champions thrown in for good measure.

For a long time, no one seriously believed that Real Madrid and Barcelona would ever be challenged at the top of La Liga. However, the 2013/2014 season defied the odds as Diego Simone’s Atletico Madrid sealed the league title by drawing at Barcelona on a dramatic final day. Four or five years ago, Atletico was not a contender for the title in most people’s eyes. If any club was going to break the duopoly at the top of La Liga, it was going to be Valencia.

The top flight in Scotland is largely frowned upon by the UK let alone other countries around Europe. Celtic and Rangers have won the highest tier in Scotland since the 1985-1986 season which has been evident proof of their dominance. Rangers were demoted to the Scottish League 2 in 2012 due to liquidation which pretty much sealed Celtic’s fate as being crowned Premiership champions until Rangers returned to the top tier but the 2014/2015 season has seen a new rise.

I’m not sure how big a story this has been around the world, but next month Scotland is voting to decide whether or not they should become an independent country for the first time since 1707.
Scottish nationalism may be very high at the time voters go to the polls. Glasgow has just successfully hosted the Commonwealth Games, in which the UK countries compete as separate nations, and the Ryder Cup will soon be held at Gleneagles.
Opinion polls seem to suggest that, at the moment, Scotland will stay in the UK, but let’s say hypothetically that the ‘yes’ campaign is successful and Scotland becomes independent.
