Fulham - Fair Play League!

Fulham - Fair Play League!

Our loss, to Atletico Madrid, last night means that Craven Cottage will not witness European football next season.

A victory last night was the only way in which we could qualify for the Europa League next season.

Any hopes of finishing high enough in the Premier League, to qualify, diminished as the season progressed whilst one last possible entrance route was slammed in our faces just recently.

English football had high hopes of being awarded an extra Europa League place through the Fair Play scheme.

Our exemplary disciplinary record meant that we were prime candidates to qualify; indeed if we`d have won the Europa League relegated Burnley were the club likely to fulfill that place.

Sadly, that door was slammed shut when UEFA awarded the Fair Play places to the Scandinavian trio of Norway, Finland and Sweden.

It looks like, for us, all our efforts will be concentrate don the domestic competitions next season but it does have the added bonus that we`ll not be playing 63 competitive games and we`ll not be playing competitive football as early as July like this season.

I think our best hope is a domestic cup because getting seventh is going to be a huge ask with the money that the teams above us have. But after this I want season more Europa League football. I think a lot of us were sceptical at the beginning of the season but Roy has definitely converted me and also raised Fulham’s profile on the European stage beyond all recognition. Hopefully it may allow us to attract better quality players in the closed season. Obviously it would have been better to be able to offer more European football to get players in.

Obviously, I wanted victory, but I'm not disappointed that we'll only have domestic football to focus on next season. I think trying to sustain another European adventure would be overwhelming. Refocus domestically. Grab a top seven finish, and we'll give it another go in 2011-2012.

Unfortunately Teddy, I don’t think seventh will be a possibility next season, when you see the teams that we would have to beat to get there we would have to finish above two from the list below and that doesn’t count the seasons surprise package whoever that will be next year. Man City; Tottenham; Liverpool; well maybe not them if their collapse continues :-) Villa; Everton They will all spend a lot more money than we will in the summer so getting seventh will be a big ask, unless Mo spends big and that still doesn’t guarantee getting there, I think a domestic cup will be the best chance and it would be nice to win something for a change. Wednesday hurt like hell it was ’75 all over again, but I think under Roy we will get there eventually. COYW
