    ok, i guess i stand corrected with regards to the comparison between France/Lyon and Japan/INAC but you have to admit there are some similarities. nevertheless, i would not be so keen on Lair either as a coach for not being able to utilize his players more effectively (i have read this American article musing on Rapinoe’s wasted potential at her natural position, etc, that could have cost them the Champions League; and i also don’t like how 2 skillful Japanese ditched the club at the same time, Ohno and Otaki). or is it the administration/organization of the team itself at fault? (or does Lair have a big role in saying which players to get and get rid of?) for turning into a women’s Real Madrid with so many good players wasted and put aside?

    in any case, since the new coach is neither of them, i’m curious as to how he goes about trying to cure the underachieving sickness the FWNT apparently seem to have.
