As someone with a soft spot for Spurs, I really thought they were going all the way in the UEFA Cup this season. Their name was on the cup, or so I thought until about ten minutes into last night’s second-leg quarter final, when they found themselves 2-0 down to a very strong Sevilla side (lovely finish by Spurs old boy Freddie Kanoute for the second); perhaps the home team were put off by the Spaniards’ shockingly bright away kit.
Spurs fought back well, but they couldn’t quite manage a winner. This was always going to be the worst tie for both teams – it should have been the final – but the Primera Liga got one over on the Premiership this time. Bah. Still, I could watch these two play all day. Match highlights/goals below:

    well, still english team was eliminated.
    there are 3 teams from spain in semifinals.
    in my opinion it just shows that maybe premiership has 3-4 very good clubs (maybe the best in the world) but level beyond top goes down rapidly. where in spain there are more good teams and league is better because of this. (this is answer to claiming that premiership is the best in the world after 3 top teams from england got to semifinals in champions league)

    You make some good points utlendingur I’m always impressed how well even smaller teams play in Spain in terms of technique and so on.

    Well, Sevilla isn’t exactly a ‘small’ team in the sense of La Liga. They’ve been in and out of first for the most part of the year, and are current UEFA Cup and SuperCup holders. Osasuna maybe moreso.

    I’m still backing Werder Bremen- inconsistent, certainly, but they’re brilliant when they’re on. The fourth goal against AZ was beautiful.
