Marseille's community-based site, notreOM.net, brings you a ray of hope on Thursday with an article entitled "Reasons to believe!". Injuries... bad luck... a rough patch... rivals... Plenty of reasons not to give up the fight, despite the eight point gap up to Lille in third. notreOM gives the reminder of 2007 and the squad coached by Albert Emon:
"To the question: 'Has OM already experienced a season like this?' we can tell you 'Yes!' How could one forget that back in 2007 OM was in an identical situation, if not to say a worse situation: eighth with ten points to make up on second-planced Lens in Week 27! OM ended the season second behind Lyon, overtaking everyone in a charge home to the finish line. Les Olympiens are the masters of the sprint finish, and they can prove it again this season!"
