Fulham are reportedly prepared to offer their vacant manager's chair to Mark Hughes, after first-choice target Martin Jol turned them down. The former Manchester United star, who enjoyed a frugal period during his late playing days at Fulham's SW6 neighbours Chelsea, has been out of management since Manchester City dumped him last December. Prior to his short-lived spell at Eastlands, the Welshman had enjoyed a promising start to club management, moulding a Blackburn side that was hard-headed (not for nothing were they nicknamed "Blackeye Rovers") yet bloodily effective. It might take a while for the Craven Cottage faithful to warm to such tactics, comfortable as they are with the more stylish play Roy Hodgson cultivated.
