Now we have the fair play option it opens another possibility- what will the strategy be for Sunday?
a) Fight tooth and nail to beat the barcodes to claim 5th place - risking yellow cards / red cards if things go astray
b) Go for a nervy draw to claim 5th with best behaviour just in case Man City lose the plot and we go above them on the fair play league (we are very close - 1 yellow for them might do it). That way we get in even if 6th through the fair play league. Lots of risks, ifs and buts here. Just like the Aresenal game.
I would like to see a rousing finish personally and go for option a), really go for it, knowing we have the Intertoto as a fall back if needed.

Plus finishing on as many points as possible to set a target for next season.

Wasn?t the last time Man City qualified for Europe via the fair play?

" Don’t worry about losing lads, just don’t concede any yellow cards - oh and no appealing for penalties AJ!"
Probably have someone on the phone checking the progress of the City game "they’re down one yellow card Boss!".
Did you know that apparently crowd behaviour is taken into consideration (seriously) So be very nice tomorrow lads. A warm welcome back to Merseyside for our old friend Kevin (God Bless im) and a round of applause for those jocular Geordies who make the trip ;-)
Ok, forget all that, just go for the win, 20 goals for the Yak, clean sheet for Tim and lots of stick for Kev.
