Every Good Boy Deserves F_____

Congratulations to Zenit Saint Petersburg for bagging the UEFA Cup and all, but…I’m sorry, what brings that competition into more disrepute? The fact that Manchester City qualified for next year’s edition by finishing sixth in the Premier League’s “fair play” table? Or the fact that Fulham, a club that would be looking forward to next year’s big clash with Ipswich Town if not for divine intervention, almost qualified by the same metric? Shouldn’t there be a separate competition for “fair play” standouts—maybe one where both teams sit down for a nice cup of tea at midfield?
