Last week we ran a short article suggesting there could be an added bonus for the club this week as well as staying up if we beat Portsmouth.
In the UEFA Fair Play League, we were lagging just behind Manchester City as the top English club who hadn`t already qualified for the UEFA Cup. Well yesterday Manchester City had Richard Dunne sent off and Sun Jihai booked, whereas we received no red or yellow cards at all.
Common sense would suggest that would be enough to hoist us above City and give us the chance to sample European football, however, it doesn`t seem to appear to be that simple with other criteria also needing to be taken into account.
A club spokesman had this to say on the matter,
'It is certainly a possibility that we could be playing in the UEFA Cup.'
'It is a complicated situation in which administration efficiency is also taken into consideration as well as on-field behaviour but we know we are in a good position and expect to have confirmation from the Premier League early next week."
'For now, we have enough to celebrate over staying up but this could be another bonus, although we can't say more at this stage until all the documentation is in.'
Right, fingers crossed everyone, this could really put us on the map!
