If you squint at a picture of Claudio Ranieri, you'll notice that he resembles a certain someone. An individual that also dons thick framed spectacles with a shock of grey hair. Twigged it? No matter what angle or perspective you glance at the dumbfounded Italian, shuddering comparisons of Felix Magath creep into the forefront of our vision.

Gravity's a killer. Sniped from a great height by Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace, Claudio Ranieri's Fulham swiftly reacquainted themselves with the earth's crust after sidling through a Premier League fixture that they simply had to win or draw at the very least. We thought that we'd turned a corner following Tuesday's heroics against Brighton & Hove Albion, but this campaign evidently has many chicanes to scale in Nürburgring proportions.

If you were chilled to the bone on the way up to Craven Cottage on Tuesday evening, I bet you were glowing with a fizzing sense of delight on the journey back to your homes after witnessing what was undoubtedly one of the most exhilarating encounters our grand, alluring stadium has hosted in recent years. Claudio Ranieri was spouting a lot of tosh about change, wasn’t he?

Still no concrete movement on the transfer front since Ryan Babel's arrival at Craven Cottage, and with only a matter of days left before the January window slams shut, our recruitment experts have their work cut out if they're to lure their primary targets to SW6 before it's all too late. But, as ever, the media never fails to spew up alluring rumours, whispers and murmurs.

We're in desperate need of some fresh faces aren't we? No matter what Claudio Ranieri has implemented since taking the reins from Slavisa Jokanovic, Fulham are still a terribly fragile collective that are flirting, dangerously, with relegation to the Championship after one solitary season back in the esteemed confines of the Premier League.

Normality painfully resumed down by the river and what a thunderous jab in the gut that is to announce. Harry haunts the Cottage once again, and it's not even the usual suspect, either. Tottenham Hotspur, depleted and diminished, still managed to march away from the banks of the Thames with three points in their back pocket, but it's the manner in which we gifted them the spoils that stings the most.

The Turf Moor curse continues. Fulham have not won at Burnley since 1951 and the omens weren't positive before kick-off, although we understood how imperative a victory was. Train strikes, driving rain, our 1,000-plus faithful intrepidly trudged t'north to lift Claudio Ranieri's men towards a mythological victory. But football's a cruel, unforgiving game, isn't it?

We haven't lured anyone yet, but that's not to say that we're not painstakingly drawing up contractual offers for various individuals at this very moment. It's a strange time of year. Everyone on the face of the earth is planning and scheming for the months ahead, be it dietary, financially or even in terms of meeting that special someone.
