Fulham have experienced a frustrating start to their Championship campaign, with the team bereft of consistency as they seemingly follow up every impressive victory with defeat.
The club’s hierarchy are growing impatient with Symons, and without a considerable improvement reports in The Sun suggest they will seek Hull City’s Steve Bruce to take over in his place.
“Fulham will move for Steve Bruce in the next few weeks if boss Kit Symons does not get the club climbing the table,” the report states.
Potential step in the right direction?
Since dropping down to the Championship, Fulham haven’t been shy in splashing the cash and it was in fact their deal to sign Ross McCormack which prompted an increase in transfer fees across the board.
After a disastrous spell under Felix Magath, Symons has steadied the ship but there seems little signs of the club really pushing for the playoffs – an evident target set by those in power.
For every impressive 4-0 defeat over decent opposition such as Queens Park Rangers, a damaging defeat has ensued and such inconsistent form is damaging for morale.
The report states that Bruce has been identified as an ideal replacement and it’s easy to see why, considering the job he has done at Hull City and Wigan Athletic previously,
The Tigers are in a good position to make an immediate return to the Premier League, so it is hard to see him walking away from his job at the KC even if the money is right.
