Had to happen, I think, although I expected him to last until Southampton next week, after the improvement against Liverpool.
Jokanovic did us the miracle last year, and all Fulham fans will treasure that day in May at Wembley, but he was taking too long to find a side that could win in the Premiership.
Ranieri is a decent choice from what is available. At least it wasnt Allardyce.
Will it save us? Unlikely, but at least we might go down with a fight.

And a win! At last!
Did we deserve it? Probably not. Do I care? Definitely not!

With Ranieri in charge Fulham will be ok come the end of the season.

I wish I shared your insight. We were still very average, against a side that are arguably just as bad.
We scratched it today, and Im sure we will get better, but Im under no illusions that we are one of the 4 poorest teams in the division.

He's already started. We passed the ball longer into the channels much earlier than under Jokanovic, and the possesion stas were the reverse of the usual Fulham way. We usually dominate possesion with no end result, whereas yesterday, we conceded 60%, but still outscored Southampton. He has to tighten up the defence-no shit Sherlock, but he doesn't have much time to alter the whole playing style. Thank goodness we have a decent striker. If you have that, then everything else can be fixed on the training ground.
