English Teams in Europe

The poor European campaign from english clubs continued this week as both Newcastle and Tottenham bow out leaving last years Champions League winners Chelsea the only club left representing our great nation to fight for UEFA‘s top prizes.

Newcastle gave a good account of themselves but lacked the neccessary firepower needed for the toon to progress drawing 1-1 at home and despite 2 offside goals Cisse finally notched, and that was a similar case for spurs who drew 2-2 away with goals from Clint Dempsey and despite taking it to penalty’s, 2 failed spot kicks from Huddlestone and Adebayor sealed the London clubs fate.

Over all it has been a poor performance in Europe by the English clubs this season, even last years champions chelsea went out at the group stages along with the premier league winners Manchester city, Manchester United and Arsenal also went out before the Quarter finals. its all down to Chelsea now to restore a little pride.   Good luck
