Spending is only a partial statement of ambition.
Although I didn't watch both of their matches against Real Madrid, I believe nothing has changed.
Despite breaking a bone in his foot, Neymar is determined to return to first-team football in Paris before the end of the season.
Captain Silva headed in late on to complete the scoring, as Paris maintained their perfect record at home in the league this season.
The arrival of Neymar gave the PSG faithful a fresh hope of succeeding in the Champions League.
Those rainy Wednesday nights in Stoke are no one's idea of beautiful football, but they are a necessary battle for the Premier League's title hopefuls.
PSG's main objective is to find success in Europe, where the Ligue 1 giants have fallen well short of expectations year after year.
Emery remains convinced PSG are heading in the right direction - no matter who is in the dugout.
The countdown on Emery's departure has begun. We will work with enthusiasm and motivation. They were good sometimes ago but not anymore.
Emery added: "All players wearing the PSG jersey have a responsibility".
"After this elimination, the criticism is normal", Emery said ahead of Saturday's home game with Metz. There are simply no guarantees. The club must still have the proper mindset, the organizational commitment and the individual desire for winning that defines clubs like Juventus, Bayern Munich and, at times, Chelsea. The Belgian looked frustrated and even embarrassed with the team's performance as he was hooked off by Conte against Manchester City.
Their desire to part ways with Emery has less to do with him finishing second last season than his inability convert hundreds of millions of pounds of new signings into any further progression in the Champions League.
"One match is not going to allow us to forget everything".
I also wonder how PSG fans feel at this very moment.
German midfielder Julian Draxler, who watched most of the second leg from the bench, claimed PSG had "offered much, much too little" against Real Madrid.
His future has been the source of constant speculation and his fractured relationship with star players like Diego Costa has appeared to create a disillusioned dressing room under the Italian, harking back to the final days of Mourinho's reign at Stamford Bridge.
