WINNERS & LOSERS: Beasley sets up two; Brit press hammers Howard

DaMARCUS BEASLEY, who assisted in league play last weekend, set up a pair goals on Tuesday as a 4-0 PSV Eindhoven win over Volendam sent it into the Dutch Cup quarterfinals.

Florida product CORY GIBBS, who made his Feyernoord debut last weekend, played the full 90 again in midweek Dutch Cup action as Feyenoord downed AZ Alkmaar, 3-1.

American defender OGUCHI ONYEWU of Standard Liege was named to the Belgian League's ''2004 Golden Eleven.''


Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson is blaming his defenders but TIM HOWARD is taking a beating in the British press after Chelsea eliminated MAN U from the English League Cup with a 2-1 semifinal win Wednesday. Howard made a couple of good saves, but on Chelsea's second goal he stood and watched Damien Duff's 40-yard free kick from the flank bounce in the goal area and into the corner of the net. Last season, the American keeper lost his starting spot after his failure to handle a free kick that led to Man U's ouster from the Champions League. He fell out of favor again earlier this season after giving up soft goals in league play and in a Champions League draw with Lyon. Press reaction in Britain included: ''Dim Howard'' (Daily Mail), ''Damien Duff made a mug of United keeper Tim Howard'' (The Sun) and ''Howard inexplicably froze'' (Daily Telegraph)
