Europa League review – Thurs 30th Sept

“A review of the action involving Barclays Premier League teams in the Europa League on Thursday.
Liverpool and Manchester City both drew in the latest round of Europa League matches.
The Anfield aces were held 0-0 by Utrecht in Holland and then City came from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at home to Italian giants Juventus.

Adam Johnson snatched a point, bringing his side level in the 37th minute when he took advantage of a glorious through-ball from Yaya Youre. The winger showed good vision to race in from the right and sweep the ball home from inside the area.
It was just the boost City needed after falling behind to a goal from Vincenzo Iaquinta in the 11th minute.
With Jerome Boateng backing off, Iaquinta cut inside from the left before unleashing a shot that went beyond Joe Hart and into the corner of the net.
Veteran striker Alessandro Del Piero hit the underside of the bar with a late free-kick with both sides good value for their point.

Liverpool held

Earlier, Liverpool picked up a hard-earned point with a goalless draw away to Utrecht.
The Merseysiders had precious few opportunities although Fernando Torres did fire over with his left foot early in the second half when he might have hoped to hit the target.
And the visitors should have taken the lead in the 57th minute when Dirk Kuyt crossed from the right to near post where Torres, eight yards out, saw his first-time shot tipped around the post by Michel Vorm.
Raul Meireles came to his side’s rescue, clearing off the line from Michael Silverbauer’s header after Pepe Reina had failed to claim a corner from Dries Mertens.
Without the rested Steven Gerrard, Liverpool lacked a spark. It was a solid but sometimes laboured display by Roy Hodgson’s side who will still be pleased to come away with a clean sheet and a valuable point.
A draw in the Stadion Galgenwaard, where the hosts had won their previous six matches, was no disgrace but it was hardly one of those classic, gritty away performances in Europe.
Roy Hodgson’s side, who had five successive Europa League victories prior to this match, were dominated for long periods and their clean sheet owed much to goalkeeper Jose Reina and that goalline clearance from Meireles.”

Editorial Notebook: U.S. soccer frenzy – deep or superficial?

Published: Thursday, Jul. 1, 2010 – 12:00 am | Page 14A
Like many U.S. soccer fans, I was bummed when Ghana knocked Team USA out of the World Cup. Like other patriots, I had bought into the hype that our red, white and blue boys, led by Landon Donovan, would storm into the round of eight and possibly advance to the semifinals.
Lose to Ghana? Not a chance.
Yet, as they say, reality bites. And for U.S. soccer, humility rules. Although Team USA made a good showing, the nation’s soccer elite still has some work to do to compete with superteams such as Brazil, Argentina and Spain.
Still, there may be an upside to Team USA’s downfall.

For weeks, I’ve been yearning to watch World Cup games at a favorite watering hole, such as de Vere’s Irish Pub. Yet for weeks, the throngs of newly hatched soccer fans have packed such places.

It’s easy to understand the fan frenzy. When Donovan scored the winning goal for Team USA against Algeria, it was an electrifying moment.
From my living room in midtown Sacramento, I could hear a roar go up from nearby apartments as Donovan saved the day.
Within hours after that match, one of my neighbors purchased a vuvuzela, one of those dreaded plastic horns that have turned the World Cup into a hum of mind-numbing noise. Ever since, my wife and I have been treated to annoying honks at all hours.
As a longtime soccer fan, I realize I shouldn’t be a snob. I should welcome that U.S sports fans are finally embracing international soccer with gusto. In a small way, it helps unite us with the rest of the world.
Even so, I can’t help but wonder if the recent U.S. soccer frenzy is a mile wide and an inch deep. I will find out Friday, when Brazil faces the Netherlands in what promises to be one of the best World Cup matchups yet.
Perhaps then I’ll be able to secure a stool at de Vere’s, far away from any vuvuzelas.
