The Club World Cup Final

Sunday 13th December 2015 – Club World Cup Final – Seoul World Cup Stadium, Seoul – Att. 77,644

Glenn Tham: Welcome to Seoul for the Club World Cup Final. I am Glenn Tham and Jeremy Pauker as our guest pundit joins me tonight. This is the first time we are seeing Olympique Lyonnais in this competition after seeing them lift the Champions League trophy against Liverpool. Tell me Jeremy how do you think they have been playing so far this season.

Jeremy: Well you only have to look at their league form to give you an idea of how strong they have been. They stand top and unbeaten after a great run of form and to be honest I cant see Corinthians causing any real trouble tonight. Lyon have already won the UEFA Super Cup and look well on their way to winning another league title.

Glenn: I am just hearing the managers have confirmed the lineups so let’s have a quick look.

Glenn: What are your thoughts? Lyon are having to play a bit of a makeshift back 3 because of injures and that has meant Ulrik Yttergard Jenssen comes in along side Prince Boateng and Kyle Gonzalez.

Jeremy: Apart from a suspect back 3, Lyon look absolutely unbeatable in midfield and up front. Asamoah has been an absolutely brilliant signing, on a free as well, and Benzia is really having a superb season. Allione is one of the many shining stars at the club and I cant wait to see him over the next few years.

Glenn: I think Lyon’s midfield is one of the best in France and Europe at the moment! Corinthians have Lyon old boy Lucas Zen, Paulinho and Renato Augusto who will all attempt to influence the game. They will look to Cassio to have a big game today but in all honestly this Brazilian team won’t be able to handle the team. It’s time to hand over to commentator Arvind Krishna who will take us through the 90 minutes.

Arvind Krishna: Good evening everyone out there. I’m looking forward to this and hope we have a cracker of a match! The teams are out, national anthems have been sung and Yassine Benzia and Alexandre Lacazette await the referee’s whistle.

1’ – And we’re off with Lyon kicking from left to right this half.

2’ – Danger!! Grenier has a chance from a freekick, slightly left of central about 23 yards out. He runs up, over the wall but comfortable for Cassio.

4’ – Grenier in the thick of things and has now been booked.

10’ – Asamoah is the 2nd name in the book and Lyon need to be careful here.

21’ – Benzia hits the post from a header and it looks like Cassio got fingertips on that. A great save!

22’ – 1 minute later and we have our first goal. Alexandre Lacazette was nudged in the box and he went down. It looked a bit soft but there was contact and he steps up to cooly slot it home, straight down the middle. Lyon lead 1 – 0.

26’ – Corinthians seem frustrated and Villagra is booked for a late tackle on Tom Ince.

38’ – The Brazilian team have the ball in the net but it has been ruled out for a push and Paulinho picks up a booking for his protests.

45’ – End of the first half and a bit of a tame opening 45 minutes. Let’s hope it spices up in the 2nd half! Lyon lead 1-0.

45’ – Corinthians get us underway but immediately they lose the ball with Benzia racing on and closing down the back pass. He intercepts, rounds the keeper and taps it in for an easy finish. Great anticipation from the 20 year old! 2 – 0 Lyon.

51’ – Junior with a great chance to grab a goal for Corinthians but Ruddy stands tall and beats the ball away. Great save from the Englishman.

57’ – Renato Augusto unlucky not to score with a thundering long range drive. An absolute scorcher and Ruddy was beaten all ends up.

70’ – Apart from the goal this half has been dominated by Corinthians and it’s Junior with a long drive that Ruddy holds on to. Corinthians knocking but can’t break down the door yet.

78’ – Sidnei absolutely clatters in to Lacazette and is booked. Lucky to be on the pitch as he could have been booked for the penalty.

90’ – And that has all but wrapped it up. Alexandre Lacazette with a powering header from Tom Ince’s cross scores the 3rd Lyon goal.

90+4’ – There goes the final whistle and Olympique Lyonnais, perhaps not as comfortably as they would have liked, have won the FIFA Club World Cup and Remi Garde just carries on bringing the trophies in!

Arvind: Well that is it from me in the commentary box. A great game and we have 1st time winners Lyon going home with the trophy! Back to Glenn and Jeremy in the studio.

Glenn: Thanks Arvind. Well looking back on that 90 minutes the result was never in doubt and Lyon came away with the win. Who was the man of the match and tournament for you Jeremy?

Jeremy: Well man of the match has to be Lacazette. He’s been tremendous these last 2 seasons and with 2 goals tonight he deserves it. Man of the tournament for me is Augustin Allione though. His 2 goals in the semi finals and his wing play today was brilliant and there is a lot to come from him as he’s only 21!

Glenn: That wraps up the programme for us tonight and the Club World Cup for another year. Will we see Lyon defend their trophy? The form they are in it looks like a real possibility! From us here at FMScout Sports 1, goodnight!

Great title win, lol FMScout Sports 1 :P

League Table

Nothing really to be said about this month. They were all games we should have won and we did just that. We’re slowly extending our lead at the top of the table and I am seeing another Ligue 1 title in the near future ending up at Lyon. P$G had started the season a lot stronger and the win against them was important but now the aim is to finish unbeaten in the league!

The January Transfer Window

Transfer windows are always a thing of excitement and nerves. At Olympique Lyonnais there are a group of players that are confident in knowing they won’t be sold because they are an exceptional group of players. Apart from one or two, there would be nobody leaving the club this January.

One player I have had constant problems with is Norwegian Ulrik Yttergard Jenssen. He has been an absolute pain in my ass with his attitude towards training and I finally sold him to Russian club Kuban for €2.2 million. A paltry fee but I was fed up with him and he had to leave.

The board weren’t happy with how little I let him go for but I couldn’t care less I was just glad he was gone!

I had kept my eye on a young French talent over at Manchester United for a couple of seasons and it seems this season he has really blossomed in to an exciting prospect. Djibril Toure is currently on loan at Middlesborough but he has all the attributes that you would see in a 23 year old yet he is only 17. I immediately contacted Manchester United and we agreed on a transfer fee that is pretty hefty. €13 million up front with €3 million spread over 48 months. It was accepted and we then offered Toure a contract worth over €20,000 a week. It is a lot but he is an amazing talent and I was ready to bring him to the club and I had the backing of the board this time. He joins at the end of the season and will stay at Middlesborough on loan.

***Guys this will be my last update for a while. I know it is nothing spectacular but I start working tomorrow at Aon Hewitt and will be there for 2 months. This means I will only be able to update the story maybe once or twice during the week and a few times on the weekends. Hopefully you will all carry on following :D***
Have fun at Aon! Good luck with your career. Will be looking forward to the next update. :)
Amazing month, Benzia scoring loads it seems! Good luck at Aon, I'll still check religiously for updates ;)
What a player and only 16 million Euros, what a bargain.

Also errr 500th Post

Win, win, domination, win. No change there! :P
Another big trophy for OL... And always sit on the top... Great mate! :)

Good luck with your work... And I will be here, looking forward for your next updates, obviously! :D
Glenn: Thanks mate :D should be able to update tomorrow yay!

neal: Benzia is one of the top scorers in the team now and has over 20 goals...hopefully he carries on! He has 5* potential in my save!

TSO: He looks excellent and I think maybe 16 mill is a lot for a 17 year old but Id rather get him than let Man Utd have him :p haha thanks for noticing!

Rabs: Haha I want to make it an unbeaten season in the league at least!

Gambit: Thanks mate! We have a great squad :P hopefully we can retain the CL trophy! I will update soon! Thanks for following!
I paid 12.5m for a 17 year old so now that you've spent more I feel better on it :P
I think you have a awesome signing there I love this story!!!

Forgot to screen shot the league table but we have continued extending our lead at the top of the table. It has been a great month with 2 away goals in Moscow and I am confident we will beat them in France. To be honest we should have won by more! The draw against Nice was frustrating because they parked the bus and PSG had 10 men for the last 17 minutes and we couldn’t capitalise which was a shame but those draws haven’t stopped our march to the title!
