As supporters hurried to get out of Block 205 after the final whistle last night, there was a constant grumbling amongst the departing Kopites. Spirits were unsurprisingly not high, as the reality of being in Europe's secondary competition really hit home after an uninspiring narrow victory over Romanian champions Unirea Urziceni.
'Aquilani's not worth ÃÂ£20 million', 'one up front against ten defenders is ridiculous' and 'Pacheco is better than N'gog' were all rash yet understandable analysis of the frustrated faithful, but one common theme stood out more than the others - the price people had paid to watch that game.

Real Madrid target Xabi Alonso made a brief appearance as a strong Liverpool team suffered a heavy defeat in Spain.
Midfielder Alonso came off the bench with six minutes remaining as Espanyol officially opened their new stadium, and reports in Spain indicate it may be his final appearance for Liverpool.
