IMO Gracia was sacked too late if anything. The form at the end of the previous season and the manner of the cup final defeat should have seen him gone in hindsight. I’m aware not everyone shares that view though. As for Ranieri, I think there’s a difference between setting us up defensively - and making us more defensive minded and quick on the break. I think he’ll do the latter in games we should win and the former in those we shouldn’t. Whereas Xisco set us up far too attacking. Worked last season when we should be reasonably expected to batter those in front of us. But the opposition this season is levels above the Championship - yet Xisco’s lack of tactical awareness meant we have just gone in with the same mentality as last season. Kamikaze stuff really. For me Ranieri is someone who probably sits between Xisco and Ivic in terms of style - and that’s maybe just what we need.
