Save Our Season Nicholas!By: John | April 14th, 2012
With tonight’s cup final kicking off in roughly half an hour, we have a chance at securing a place in the Europa Cup next fall. While this is not what we were hoping for at the start of the season, the recent poor run has left the season hanging in the balance, and tonight the story will unfold against bitter rivals, Lyon.I have read that today our saving grace Nicholas N’koulou has verbally committed to returning to the Stade Vélodrome for the next season. The Cameroon international and captain will surly solidify our ailing back four and add experience and grit to a defensive unit that has been anything but impressive all year.
That’s the good news. The bad news is, well, everything but this it seems like. I haven’t gotten any updates as to whether Remy will play tonight, and I’m sure we can all assume that this will be his last big match for us, as England has continued to beckon him (Tottenham and Arsenal, among others).
The starting 11 as follows
I’ll be sure to add a lot more to this post later after the match tonight, so check back in! ALLEZ L’OM!
