A game too far for brave Fulham

Roy Hodgson's boys should be proud of their fine performances in the Europa League, which sadly ended in tears tonight for the valiant team from the banks of the Thames, south west London.  London's oldest top flight club played very well and were defeated in the last moments of extra time.  Tired legs and minds fought magnificently.  The game was finally won for Athletico Madrid by Diego Forlan, a Manchester United reject who has plagued both Liverpool and now Fulham in this football competition.   Visions of Forlan removing his shirt to celebrate his killer goals will haunt English fans for years. He has been able to pop up at the crucial moment and win key games.  Forlan was not a prolific goal scorer for Manchester United, but he now enjoys hero status among Athletico's supporters; they have been so long in the shadow of the mightly Real Madrid.  Let's give Athletico credit for the success they achieved in Hamburg today. Bravo Athletico!
