This season the team finishing 6th in the Premier League Fair Play League could win through to the Uefa Cup as all the teams above them had already qualified for European competions one way or another

Prior to the last game of the season Fulham were just behind Man City in the Fair Play League so depending on the last game Fulham could make it into Europe.

With Man City suffering a red and yellow card and getting thrashed 8-1 in their last game Fulham hoped they had done enough to get into 6th place at the last moment.

Unfortunately today the Premier League have confirmed that City held off the challenge of Fulham to finish sixth in the Fair Play table by less than 1 point.
