The dismissal after a City defeat follows those of Graeme Souness and Mick McCarthy after similar defeats put paid to their reigns at Newcastle and Sunderland.
Fulham are currently in the midst of a shocking run, and find themselves in danger of being sucked into the bottom three so must be hoping that this appointment will provide the jolt to the side to pick up the necessary points to safeguard their Premiership status.
Looking at their squad, whilst not a top six side by any means they do have some talent in there but yet again have struggled and I have picked them to finish around the relegation zone for the past two seasons now. It is perhaps not a surprise that ultimately Coleman has paid the price for their under achievement.
I've got more on the Coleman sacking over at Fox Sports.
