Review of revision 4229996 [Passed]Edit


{{Editprotected}} According to the article, Zlatan won two consecutive domestic titles with PSG. But, in fact, he won two consecutive domestic trebles with PSG. He won the Ligue 1 in all four seasons at Paris. (see this link mentioned in the source)

@AGastya: I agree that the source verifies two consecutive trebles, although it's not at all clear to me one would call those "domestic". I'm not sure what edit you're asking for, though. Is the statement in the article false or misleading? If so, we really should issue a {{correction}}. --Pi zero (talk) 16:50, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
@Pi zero: a domestic treble in football means winning the league, the domestic cup and the supercup (played between the winners of the league vs winner of the domestic league. If the same team has won both, then domestic cup runners, which is a knockout tournament, play against league winners in the supercup) On the other hand, the treble FC Barcelona won in 2015 is the European treble winning the league, domestic cup and the European Championship (UEFA Champions League in Europe)

Zlatan won four Ligue 1 titles and two consecutive domestic trebles. (By the way, it didn't ping me.)

  1. Is the statement in our article wrong?
  2. Is the statement in our article misleading?

Correction: The article states that "Zlatan helped the club win two domestic titles in a row" but, Zlatan helped Paris Saint-Germain to win two domestic trebles in a row. Zlatan has won four Ligue 1 titles with PSG.

But... If I read your explanation correctly, a domestic treble involves winning the domestic cup (amongst others) and hence the domestic title. Which would rather imply the article is neither inaccurate nor misleading. I note you haven't answered either of Pi zero's questions. BRS (Talk) (Contribs) 16:00, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
I have already answered Pi zero's question on IRC. Since Zlatan has won four Ligue 1 titles with PSG, saying he has won two consecutive domestic titles would be incorrect and this I have mentioned what to write for the correction template.

Like BRS (see article edit history) I had trouble with the four wins, so I poked around (to my mind, verifying a correction is a more free-wheeling sort of thing than ordinary article review). Key source: --Pi zero (talk) 23:25, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
Zlatan has never won the Champions League (we need to verify that, but it is the fact). But, we have published the UEFA Champions League match report for the finals of the last two seasons, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid won.
