In their continuing efforts to stave off relegation, Fulham have signed Ryan Babel.

The 32-year-old Dutch winger has joined the club on a six-month permanent deal from Besiktas, whom he joined in January of 2018.

Once of Liverpool, Babel doesn’t immediately strike you as the kind of muck-in-and-get-things-done signing the Cottagers need to haul themselves up and out of the gurgling mire (any Fulham fan will tell you that at least one new dependable centre-half should have been the priority).

Rather, it would appear that the club have procured another flighty attacker with a long and vaunted history of being entirely inconsistent.

It’s not like he’s even in form, either, with Babel currently without a single goal or assist in his previous nine appearances at club level.

With every passing day, Claudio Ranieiri’s wimpy team look slightly more doomed.

    So, this Paki goes to Turkey and buys a red-capped Babel…and gifts that rare avian to an Italian working in London for a firm recently owned by an Egyptian…who owns a department store that is full to the rafters with oil-drenched, heretical glitterati.
