first team / 2015 in Review

The decisive moment...

Between Alex's display in the derby, the last ever match at Gerland and the cascade of injuries, we asked OL fans what was the moment of the first-half of the season...

43%. Injury doom and gloom

What would OL's season have been like with a full playing squad available? Almost certainly a little more positive! Unfortunately, injuries where an ever-present at Tola Vologe, since the summer. In preseason, Grenier tore his quadriceps against Arsenal. Four months out. A month later, Fekir was injured on international duty with Les Bleus. A knee reconstruction and six months on the sidelines... The first may be back, but the latter will have to wait a little longer yet... And then there was Umtiti, the leader in defence, sidelined since early November. For the final match of the year, OL were without Bisevac, Fekir, Gorgelin, Kalulu, Jallet, Fofana, Lacazette, Morel, Valbuena and Umtiti... and after just ten minutes, Rafael joined them as he hobbled out of the game... Injury doom and gloom!

Alex Lacazette's hat-trick in the derby came a close second in the voting, while the festivities for the last ever match at the Stade de Gerland was third...
