Ranieri back in the Premier League

Will be nice to see him back in the league, has a big job on his hands at Fulham however.

I'm not really sure this is the right move for Fulham. Not so much with regard to who they've hired and I of course wish Claudio the best there, but as I recall they started both of the last two seasons slowly and then picked up and gained momentum as they went. Given the nature of the league this year, they're not exactly at risk of being cut adrift at the bottom as yet, and the could potentially have started accelerating soon under Jokanovic just as they have before.

But then, their owner will have a better idea of what's going on behind the scenes than I. And I fully expect at least a new manager boost from this.

I hope it works out for him, but I do worry that it won't. At least he has an easy start, home to Soton. I'll certainly be looking out for Fulham's results.

I don’t know how to feel about this.

I’m not sure I’m comfortavke seeing ranieri coming out to try and beat us. I’m also not sure this is a great move for Ranieri as it doesn’t play in to his skills. Immediate turnarounds aren’t his thing.

However, what he showed at Leicester is he’s a tactical magician and can get a defence shaped up. The defence piece is absolutely key, and with the talent Fulham have, I think he may succeed.

It’s mixed emotions from me, but I wish Claudio well.

Good luck Claudio!

Hope he has some success there but not at our expense.
Maybe he'll come in for 1 or 2 of our fringe players?
Who is Fulhams right-back???
Danny Simpson might be buzzing at this news?

Comment from BBC news article:

"Idiots, don't they know you're supposed to hire Pearson THEN Ranieri if you want to win the league?"

Mersey - you kind of sum up my feelings on this but hey - "dilly ding, dilly dong" to Claudio - a real gentleman and Legend in the true sense of the word. I also am old enough to remember Fulham in the old First Division and they were something of a bogey team to us so I'm not overconfident about the upcoming fixtures. I particularly remember losing at home to the then "unfancied" Fulham when City were a top side to a wonder goal from Rodney Marsh. I can still remember the depression on leaving Filbert Street and wondering just how we managed to lose the game!! Now where's my Fossils & Foxes??

It'll be interesting to see how he goes with this, quite a different challenge from what he inherited at Leicester.

I thought about wishing him luck, but at the moment he's in charge of a club that looks to be finishing below us, so I don't want him to do too well.

It should be entertaining in any event.

Cant see him doing any worse than his predecessor at Fulham. Ranieri is a manager with plenty of experience in the Prem.

It's funny really.
For us it was deemed a crazy appointment generally.
Now at Fulham he's "The right man at the right club" appointment generally
