Sports Letter: Dish the Dirt

Sir: Could I suggest a modification to the splendid Uefa rule that will allow the fairest team from the fairest league an entry to the Uefa cup as whipping-boys?

I propose that this be extended so the reverse applies - the dirtiest team that would otherwise qualify for European competition on merit would be excluded.

Not sure of the current stats, my guess would be one of little endorsement of my idea from M. Wenger.
