To call last weekend a bad one for American soccer plays in Europe would be an understatement.
Fulham lost again, as did Reading. Michael Bradley’s Heerenveen blew a late lead and fell to sixth place in the Eredivisie after being in second place two weeks ago. Oguchi Onyewu’s Standard Liege dropped points to KAA Gent and fell into second place in the process. Then there was Steve Cherundolo, who scored an own goal in Hannover 96’s 2-1 loss to Bochum on Friday.
