Fulham’s season has been a mess from the start – the saddest part for this naive side is that relegation was so avoidable
Let’s start with the goalkeepers. Marcus Bettinelli was Fulham’s No 1 during last season’s promotion challenge. He had waited patiently for his chance and started when they beat Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final. He was a key member of a winning team; the shirt was his to lose. Then they signed two experienced Spaniards just before the start of the new campaign.
Fabri was the first to arrive, joining from Besiktas for £5m, and Sergio Rico followed him after signing on loan from Sevilla on the final day of the transfer window. Two days before their opening Premier League game, Fulham had three senior goalkeepers. All they had to do next was work out who was first-choice. No sweat, right?
