Europa League Wednesday: Fulham vs. Odense

A big one in Europa League today for Americans to watch.

No, not Tottenham.

Wisla Krakow is nipping at the Cottagers heals. A win for Krakow and loss for Fulham rules Damien Duff’s dudes out of Europa.

While American media will be all over Dempsey playing at home after eating at the Swansea gaffe-ateria, Nigerian Peter Utaka is a proficient “B movie” European striker with 99 goals in 246 club matches in his career. MLS comp for Utaka–a rich man’s Dominic Oduro–only Utaka nails the sitters.

Utaka below–gotta love the backing from Will Smith:

        Yes, and if he can keep playing in the middle with a bit of a free role. He is so dangerous around the box. It would be kind of cool to see him at the Olympics in London too.

  2. Injury time equalizer. Ugh.

    At least my little Salisbury FC is through to FA Cup Third Round!

    Peter Utaka, arguably one of “those” who never got a chance at a big league to produce. If Rada Prica could, why can’t he?

    Disappointing result for Fulham. Get the feeling that last year’s squad would have gotten through with ease…they just can’t seem to click so far this year.

    Kudos to Wisla for making the knockout stages. Glad to see 2 underdog Polish teams slip through to the next round (only two teams from Pot 4 of group stage qualifying to make it, unless Celtic can knock-off Udinese today).
