FC Sochaux-Montbéliard vs. Olympique Lyonnais,

Ligue 1 , Matchday 13.

It is time to pick up the pieces. Real Madrid redefined the words ‘Demolition Derby' for us these past few weeks. But more significantly, they've left Lyon on the verge of being knocked out from the Champions League after the group stages.

Stade Municipal de Gerland, Week 4, Ligue 1

Yep, Hugo Lloris has left for Tottenham. I couldn't help going back three years in time when a friend said Lyon is better than Tottenham. "Tottenham?!", I cried, "Why would you even mention the two teams in the same sentence?

Milan for Lyon, first take, clap! New Lyonnais Milan Bisevac will start in central defense. The Serb defender will be associated with Kone and not Lovren, who rejoined the group after four months absence due to a painful foot.

Short post today as Nikhil won't be able to post the preview due to personal circumstances.

There's precious little to say other than Lyon are pretty much assured to keep the 4th spot, so this game is of little importance... except for Gourcuff and the other European internationals who want to be noticed and selected for the Euro championship.

Lyon – Valenciennes : a standing to defend

Short post today. After winning the Coupe de France against Quevilly (1-0) and therefore qualified for the group stages of the Europa League, the OL players (currently 5th with a game in hand) will try to end the season with panache and climb onto the podium. Les Gones stand nine points behind the third (Lille) and one point behind current fourth Rennes, but they rely on a postponed game to play against Evian TG on May 10.

Lorient vs Lyon : So what now?

Call that mimicry. Or boredom. Or the result of too many hot then cold showers. Anyway, I can't help but feel exactly like OL in Toulouse : uninspired. Yes, there is a game tonight, and mathematically there is still a chance to end up on the third spot; but Lille have got their superpowers back, and QSG will do their best not to be ridiculed by seemingly unstoppable Montpellier and their budget that is barely one fifth of theirs.

4 months. 4 months since we couldn't count on a full squad. And boy, was it felt. But could our initial fortunes be coming back to us? All of a sudden, no more injured (except Tafer and substitute keepers Vercoutre and Lopes), no more suspended (Dabo has served his three matches after being sent off against Saint-Etienne).

The FA has passed down it's judgement on Joey Barton, and he has been suspended for a total of twelve games for his misdemeanours in the last game of the season against Manchester City. The first four games of the ban cover the sending off for violent conduct, plus an extra game ban for it being Barton's second sending off of the season – every time a player gets sent off more than once in a season in England, they have an extra game added to their suspension for eqch subsequent dismissal.

Yesterday evening the Football Association announced that they had bought 'violent conduct' about Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton (or '37542′ as he was briefly referred to as for a short stretch back in mid-2008) for the sly jab he delivered to Blackburn winger Morten Gamst Pedersen when the two sides met in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

The Colorado Rapids hold their collective breath while they await the injury diagnosis for star forward Conor Casey.

Casey is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the left calf/Achilles strain he suffered in the first half of Colorado's 4-3 loss at Seattle on Saturday afternoon.

The ongoing saga of how poorly the Revs' roster has been built continued this week, as oft-injured midfielder Ousemane Dabo announced his retirement on Monday.

The 34-year-old center half was limited to three appearances this season, and never stayed healthy long enough to make an impact on the Revolution's fortunes.

Mired in a nine game winless streak with no end in sight, the New England Revolution desperately need new players to turn their season around. And no one knows that more than head coach Steve Nicol.

The New England Revolution are set to take on English Premier League champions Manchester United on Wednesday night at Gillette Stadium as part of the World Football Challenge. This friendly comes smack in the middle of an extended run of poor form for the Revs but shouldn't throw too much of a wrench in their fixture schedule as it will be 9 days since their previous match against Real Salt Lake.

The New England Revolution will make an arduous Independence Day trip to Utah to take on Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium on Monday. The Revs are winless in their last seven matches, going all the way back to a 1-0 home victory against Vancouver on May 14th. RSL, on the other hand, are starting to come out of a rough patch after beginning the season on fire but losing momentum due to injuries and Gold Cup absences.

The New England Revolution will take on the Seattle Sounders on Sunday afternoon in the first match of an extended road trip. Seattle has been up and down this season but appear to be getting their house in order and they still sit pretty at third in the Western Conference. The Revs will have to try and fight for all the points they can get after coming up with just two points in their recent two-match home stand.

Missed opportunities and miscommunication in the attacking third continue to be the name of the game for the New England Revolution as they fail to get any points against a red hot FC Dallas team out in Frisco, TX.

The team saw the surprising return of their consistently injured Frenchmen, Didier Domi and Ousmane Dabo, as they made their way to Nicol's starting XI.

FRISCO, Tex. For the second consecutive week, the Revs were kept off the board as they fell to FC Dallas Saturday night at Pizza Hut Park.

Martin Chavez scored in the 69th minute while Kevin Hartman was rarely tested in the course of recording his seventh clean sheet of the season.

Even with Ousmane Dabo and Didier Domi back in action, the Revs failed to assert themselves on the ball early.

On the one hand, the New England Revolution will have to look at last night's result as two points lost. The Colorado Rapids side that met the Revs at Gillette were not the MLS Cup Champion Rapids; they were horribly depleted by injuries and playing their third match in seven days. Especially with Conor Casey and Omar Cumming missing it appeared the perfect opportunity for New England to pick up a valuable win against one of the league's class sides, and they failed to do that.

It looked like a depleted New England Revolution side was going to get out of Houston with a draw until Hunter Freeman's 86th minute goal broke the Revolution's resolve and handed the Houston Dynamo a 1-0 win.

It was the Revs' second consecutive shutout loss after starting the season unbeaten through four games, while it was also their first-ever loss in Houston after five previous successful visits.

Sorry I'm late, Sunday was a little hectic.

I hope none of you are satisfied with Saturday's performance. One point is better than none, certainly, but an expansion team on a long road trip that has conceded five goals in their last two league matches should be easy pickings for a club looking to be a playoff contender.
