Snapshot Special – Mixed fortunes for British teams in the UEFA Cup


7th, March 2008

There were mixed fortunes for the British sides still involved in the UEFA Cup last night – although it was our big name teams that suffered while the lesser lights managed a few surprises.
Spurs still seem to be suffering from a Carling Cup hangover and a slow start gifted PSV’s Jefferson Farfan an all-important away goal, which Spurs couldn’t equalize despite sustained pressure in the second half – is this the end of Juande Ramos’ monopoly on the UEFA Cup?

Everton were the second big name casualty after being outclassed in Italy. Tim Howard pulled off some impressive saves in the first half but an under-par Everton eventually succumbed to two classy goals from Fiorentina’s Kuzmanovic and Montolivo.
Bolton’s unexpected European adventure was still on course after Gavin McCann’s opener at the Reebok but a second half equaliser from Sporting Lisbon Vukcevic means they will have to replicate their impressive away form if they want to go any further.
Rangers were the only British team to come away with a win after two goals in quick succession from Daniel Cousin and Steven Davis respectively against a decent Werder Bremen side with Champions League experience.
Let us know who you think has the best chance of progressing to the quarter-finals.
