    Hi, Jonathan. I have been reading your articles for some time now and I'm really enjoying it.
    Wanted to ask you a few questions:-

    1) In your opinion, who should be France's first choice CB pairing for the WC??

    2) Did PSG make a mistake by selling Sakho?? I am a Liverpool fan and he has been brilliant for us.

    3) What do you think of Marcelo Bielsa's rumoured appointment as manager of Marseille at the end of the season??

    Jon, I wanted to get your opinion if Blanc will ever think about switching his tactics especially starting the QF of the CL. I will say that it's a 95% chance that PSG will face the best team they have had so far this campaign once they finish off Leverkusen in Paris. It's unlikely PSG will dominate possession . In that case, PSG using a 4-3-3 with Cavani and Ibra playing isn't optimal. While Cavani does a lot of dirty work, a 4-3-3 isn't ideally meant to be played with 2 big CFs. Blanc for all he has done for PSG, his tactical nous has not been tested this season. It maybe easy to dominate possession in Ligue 1, but when that's not the case, will Blanc have the guts to sit Cavani and play both Lavezzi and Lucas? PSG cannot outplay most of these teams in the midfield and will be forced to counter. If that's the case, playing both Ibra and Cavani will not be smart.

    Really enjoy your ligue 1 articles. How has corchia been playing in a struggling sochaux side? Haven't heard much of him since he was linked with Arsenal. Also, what is going on with Payet? I was heavily impressed by him last year but heard he was struggling with Marseille. Thanks, I don't get to watch French football often.

    Hey, Jonathan.

    How has Moutinho been doing at Monaco? I haven't managed to watch too many of their games, but Moutinho's stats on whoscored.com are very impressive.
