Imagine the numbers we will take to Lyon, be on a par with Lille

Since I don't know the exact dates I've just booked 1 night for every date in Lyon , free  cancellation.

Apparently the Atalanta game won't be played at their home ground, waiting to see what happens with that

Lyon seem to have sold their best players like Lacazette, Valbuena and Tolisso and not really replaced them properly.

Is Depay still there?

Could anyone price up a potential trip to Lyon for us?

Depay is there. They also have Rafael and Betrand Traore.

Saw Atalanta a few times last season and they were worthy of their league position. I think they went 10 games unbeaten or something, which was a club record, and only lost it to Juventus.

Managed by Gasperini who has a habit of bossing it for one season at a time for some reason.

From what I've seen they play only one way which is fairly fluid possession football in a 3-4-3 and they're quite good to watch. They're unpredictable, however and can win games they aren't expected to and lose those they are.

They may come crashing back down to earth this season though cos they've sold all their best players and some of which are still there had the seasons of their lives which they might not repeat. They're one of those teams won't ever consistently be good because their XI is drastically different every year. They have the best academy in Italy but little inclination to hold on to their homegrown talents.

I reckon we're better them and 4 points from two games would be just fine

Not a common destination.

Flights have stopped from Manchester till next year.
Flying from London is 58 on a random September Thursday (double or teble that when the dates for the match are announced though)
Hotels around 80 for 2 as well  (again, may go up).


If you could drive you can get an overnight chunnel for 46. Take between 12 & 18 hours though

Train is (getting in at 4 on a Thursday, leaving at 2 on the Friday) is 190
