Fulham qualified for the Europa League last season because they were ranked 2nd in the UEFA Fair Play rankings because of a good run on their fair play tactics (e.g. attacking tactics, acceleration of the game, efforts to gain time, and continued pursuit of goals) during the 2010-11 season, which I mostly attribute to Bobby Zamora and Mark Schwarzer. Since Zamora left for QPR and Schwarzer nagging with injuries, Fulham had trouble with establishing calm play. Most of the time Clint Dempsey was blamed of being too "gigil" at goal so their yellows accumulated and David Stockdale isn't convincing in organising the defense unlike Schwarzer or even Neil Etheridge. That's why they failed to improve their Fair Play ranking and not able to qualify for the Europa League this season.

stealthStriker: Thai's goal was an offside according to ph malditas coach. if you see the match report, the Thai's really struggled, and they're are playing physical as shown by those 4 yellow cards. Well just like their Mens NT.
