wow. thats great marmotte! I have never seen Abidal play, but heard he's quite a talent. Will Frau and Elber be your striking partnership next season? And how is Essien doing?! He should be your next Vieira I think!
Well I don´t think Lyon should worry that much of the loss of Edmilson, he is not that good and reliable.. Luyindula is a great player and should break in to the NT soon, but Lyon have Govou (wich is better as a striker then a mid) and Pierre-Alain Frau (wonderful goalscorer)... isn´t Elber still there to??
The biggest loss for Lyon is Vikash Dhorasoo & Eric Carrière.
edmilson may not be the best CB in the french league but he's still good and losing him leaves us with only 2 CBs !
same with deflandre
of course i agree losing carrière and especially dhorasoo is even worse.
as for luyindula, he's the best striker we have currently (better than elber govou and frau IMO) and i don't think we build a succesfull team by selling your best players.
