Brian Glanville: Ranieri Failed To Carry out Magic With Fulham
Fulham are doomed to go down after a disastrous season however the place does the blame lie? Absolutely not with the supervisor they sacked so early within the season, Slavisa Jokanovic, who had little or nothing to do with a disastrous summer time switch coverage which value a colossal reported £100million however delivered so pitifully little.
Reportedly, the Khan hierarchy had determined to make use of some intricate new system which notionally would select the suitable gamers on the proper costs. However alas it did nothing of the type and a innocent and competent supervisor misplaced his job in consequence.
So Claudio Ranieri, as soon as the stunning winner of a League title with Leicester, got here in with the problem of choosing up the items. Which, since his star alas had palpably set, he was fairly unable to do. The as soon as nicknamed Tinkerman continued to tinker with a formation which by no means appeared more likely to work whereas failing to make use of the unquestioned skills of younger Ryan Sessesgnon on the left flank and the creative Tom Cairney in midfield.
The final facet Ranieri fielded at Southampton was in a prolix formation which might absolutely have baffled a educated mathematician. However the harm had been performed in the summertime when the switch coverage was taken away wholly from the supervisor and given to a machine.
Scott Parker, a former favorite at Craven Cottage, has taken over so late within the season and the membership may hardly do worse than affirm in workplace for subsequent season and the lengthy haul to flee from the so-called Championship.

Within the native derby misplaced by the odd objective to Chelsea final weekend, it was absolutely vital that the Fulham staff ran three miles additional than they’d of their final match below Ranieri, versus Southampton. For that derby sport, Parker selected a staff based mostly on gamers like Cairney and the energetic younger left winger Sessegnon. They at the least gave Chelsea a run for his or her cash.
Allow us to hope that whoever the supervisor could also be subsequent season, he escapes the mechanical hand of the equipment utilized by the membership so controversially, expensively and unsuccessfully for its rash switch coverage final summer time.
Managers not machines would absolutely at all times be a safer wager in terms of switch coverage.
