Podcast: Episode 9 – Tousart, or not Tousart, that is the question.

Two wins in two matches? Zero goals conceded but nine scored? Who is this team impersonating as Lyon? This week, Sam (@OZOL1950) and Rabeeta (@OffsideBeet) are joined by Jorge Rodrigues (@jrod258), the admin for OL’s North American supporter’s group (@OL_ADN). The three of them discuss Lyon’s promising season start, squad rotation, Martin Terrier’s amazing hair, and to go along with this week’s Shakespearean theme, the rather Hamlet-esque drama unfolding around the club’s two senior goalkeepers. This podcast also features predictions for upcoming matches that are both depressing and bold. Have a listen below and let us know if Rabeeta needs help. You will also find timestamps for specific topics if you’d like to jump around.
