Fair Play Place

I would hardly relsih going into euorpe through this but now its is a real option. The stupid thing is that Fulham are actually in with a good shout to get through with this as well.

A point on Sunday saves us six games because we'll go straight into the first round proper.

Looking at that League imagine Fulham got in!
Ipswich qualified by this route and got relegated. They qualified for the fair play league by making the fewest tackles, and got relegated for the same reason. It's a joke.
Hopefully, the Man. City players will want to show lots of committment to impress whoever will be their new manager, and so loads of tackles flying in and maybe a few yellow cards.

Sunderland having the best-behaved team officials - maybe ol' Roy really has mellowed a bit
Boro showing the least respect for their opponents - definitely not who I would have guessed
Not a surprise:
Arsenal leading in the "positive play" category
Chelsea ranking dead last in "respect towards referees"

However its a nice feeling going into our last home game of the season knowing whatever happens theres a place waiting for us in next years Uefa Cup.
Would be a nice feeling if it were true and it meant anything....but it isn't and it doesn't. Man City will very likely get it, and even if we did get it it's no better than the Intertoto place we're already assured of.....six games to reach the first round proper either way, so it changes absolutely nothing for us.

I didn't know City had leap frogged us in the fair play league, good for them. Thankyou for pointing that out. As I said sometime ago the last time I recall a fair place being available City where the beneficiaries. But we are going into the last game of the season assured of a route into next seasons Uefa cup and it is a nice feeling thankyou.

It's going to City. Press release came out today announcing that they finished sixth in the final table (meaning we must have passed them) but they held off Fulham.
Yeah we did it's on our official site, quite an achievement.
