It would appear so.
When the decision to axe Claudio Ranieri and give the managerial role to Scott Parker, on a caretaker basis, it was a move that got the support of the Fulham supporters.
In hindsight, Ranieri was clearly not the man for the job, although some might say the Italian didn’t have much of a chance considering the disjointed squad he’d inherited.
Perhaps Scott Parker may have been thinking along similar lines when, after several games in charge, he too was experiencing what it was to lose game after game and with no sign of a victory or a clean-sheet in sight.
But Scotty has persevered, he’s slowly established what his starting eleven should be and he’s stuck to his principles.
His reward has been back-to-back wins coupled with clean-sheets in consecutive game.
Now, we should point out that it could be pointed out that two wins don’t make a season, but those two wins have given the Fulham support hope that better times are around the corner.
Indeed, there are calls for Scotty to be given the job on a permanent basis, a point illustrated by the following comments on social media:
Give Parker the job now, best we've played all season under him

Dammn shame the club preserved with the fraud “Raneri” so long. Just shows what even a novice Parker can do with the squad

Now, it remains to be seen if the clubs’ owners share the same vision as the supporters or whether they have their own ideas on who will be the next incumbent of the managerial role.
But, here at Vital Fulham, Scotty certainly has our support and with Stuart Gray alongside him, who knows what next season might bring:
