Most refer to it as the good old transfer window. Some call it the Silly Season. If you are an Olympique Lyonnais fan, you might know it as Reverse Christmas, or that time of the year when your favorite club is pillaged, rather than showered in gifts.
I don’t even know why I bothered to watch this game when the players themselves can’t be bothered to play. They basically showed up an hour before the match and then had a casual game of kick about. At least that’s what it felt like to everyone except maybe Bruno Genesio, who seems to think that barely scraping by relegation-level teams is an ok result.
My 10 year old cousin has a more aggressive coach than Lyon does at the moment. Maybe Aulas should start looking for his next manager in the Washington DC youth league.
