Fulham ‘s first away win at Bournemouth in a year solidifies the case for Scott Parker’s permanent appointment.
Here I draw up the pros and cons:
1) Fulham have had 6 managers over 6 years. Each new appointment might offer initial hope but the reality was upheaval. The case for continuity is strong.
3) He is playing Ryan Sessegnon which Ranieri did not. He is also prepared to have on the sub’s young starlets like Harvey Elliot aged 16.
4) His talent as a defensive midfielder has improved Anguisssa the £30m acquisition who plays a similar role.
5) He is in the tradition of Malcom MacDonald and Chris Coleman of popular ex Fulham players making their managerial debut.
1) He will be the manager who took Fulham down and failed to win key games like Watford and Leicester away.
2) Most of the team that support him now will be gone by next season.
3) He has no experience of the Championship.
5) There are better candidates e.g. David Wagner of Huddersfield.
The solution might be for a full interviewing process of every candidate which would include Scott Parker.
