We’re holding our hands up here and saying, extremely poor run of recent Premiership results aside, we’ve literally have no idea why Fulham sacked Chris Coleman.
It’s probably down to a lack of Craven Cottage-attending writing staff, but we always thought Coleman fell into that group of managers who were doing quite well with the resources they had (along with Sam Allardyce at Bolton and Mark Hughes at Blackburn). Then again, Fulham should be safely midtable with the squad they have rather than just four points above the drop. There was also no sign of the club making any significant headway into the top six any time soon, so perhaps it was a matter of Coleman not taking the club forward enough rather than too far back? Collins John seems shocked, but then this bloke seems to think it’s the right move to save the club from relegation. It’s all very overwhelming.
But whatever our guess, it’ll never be as good as what the actual Fulham supporters have to say. We’re not afraid to admit we don’t know whether Liam Rosenoir has hit a patch of poor form, or whether Luis Boa Morte has been sorely missed, or whether Zat Knight has actually been a rock at the back recently (ok, we know the answer to that last one).
So if anyone could help us out:
1) Should Fulham have sacked Chris Coleman (and why)?
2) Who would you like to see replace him (and why)?
