Podcast: Episode 12 – Topsy-Turvy in 2020

It’s a new year and everything is upside down for Lyon. Is this optimism and positivity we’re feeling for the men’s team? Nerves and dread for the women’s team? 2020 is a strange new world, but Sam (@OZOL1950) and Arianna (@AScavs) are back to break down these surprising developments in Episode 12 of the Lyon Offside Podcast.

We’re digging into what’s different these days for an OL men’s team that stormed through January with a string of wins, and applauding Juninho for a forward-thinking transfer window. We’re stressing over just how long the women’s short-staffed midfield can hold up and wondering where the goals will come from with golden girl Ada Hegerberg sidelined by injury. Sam’s got conspiracy theories and Arianna’s got angst…and we want to know how you’re feeling!
