Why would Ranieri be a disaster, pre chelski (and the top club merry go round he wasn't up to) his lower league record is Alladyce-esk
Cagliari,he took from Serie C1 to Serie A in successive seasons.
Napoli, 4th + qualification for uefa cup (this was after maradonna era when the club was pottless)
Fiorentina, led them to Serie A promotion + Coppa Italia + Supercoppa Italiana
Valencia, Copa del Rey + UEFA Intertoto Cup, qualified for UEFA Champions League(after nearly 15 yrs underachieving)
I don't think we'd get him, but like Alladyce for me it's a no brainer, they are exactly what we need.
If Clotet gets the job he WILL be gone b4 xmas. his manager/coach record is seriously laughable. Farsley wouldn't want him.
