Fulham will play in the Europa League next season via the Premier League's Fair Play League ... which has many wondering who the hell is running football these days. It could have been relegated Blackpool! It has been suggested the club that sells the most pies will get into Europe next season. Mark Hughes' side had just one player sent off in league matches all season - that happened in the very last game leading to suggestions that relegated Blackpool could pip them to the spot. Chelsea finished top of the Fair Play League but had already qualified for the Champions League. The Premier League: "Fulham FC has finished the season as the highest placed club in the 2010/11 Fair Play League that has not already qualified for UEFA competitions via the 2010/11 Barclays Premier League. "The club will take the additional European place awarded to England and compete in next season's UEFA Europa League."
