Lyon is probably the most well-known and successful French team of all time. But is that enough for the U.S.? Do they draw fans here?
Anyway, a source (an agent working for the club) told me that he was negotiating to bring the team to Los Angeles for a friendly, perhaps against Chivas USA.
He was discouraged, though, by the apathy toward the idea in general. It's true that friendlies in the U.S. have tended towards really big clubs like Chelsea, Real Madrid, Milan, or Barcelona, but Lyon is a quality club.
I wonder whether any of our readers would be excited to see Lyon in action here.
