Europa Cup last night. Horrible name for a horrible competition.
Villa contrived to lose by the only goal away from home, Herts lost 4-0 in Zagreb, but Everton managed a 4-0 win and Fulham comfortably beat Amkar Perm 3-1 to give themselves a good chance of going through into whatever the next round is, despite Andrew Johnson breaking his collarbone. Elsewhere Galatasary and Ajax both won by 5 clear goals, while Roma's visit to MFK Kosice was a 3-3 thriller... with four penalties scored.
