One more defeat and that could be it for Jol !!!

Tottenham boss Martin Jol is is skating on very thin ice after yet another Premier League defeat last night to Newcastle. Tottenham have got off to a miserable start this season after spending big in the summer and Jol has been under pressure since the second game of the season but is he set for the chop anytime soon?

Well, the Tottenham board have said on more than one occasion that they are backing Jol but when will they finally crack. Well last night Tottenham lost their fifth match in only ten games, far from the form that helped Spurs to two top 5 finishes in a row and one suspects that Tottenham chairman Dabiel Levy has to act sooner rather than later.

From the aftermath of the game last night there was talk of unrest between Jol and striker Dimitar Berbatov, something that leads me to think he is beginning to lose his players trust. I understand that there had been talk of a dispute between the pair before but this news of a rift can't be good for Spurs.

So will Spurs get rid of him soon? To be quite honest I'm not sure but if their form doesn't pick up considerably in the coming weeks then how could he stay. If Jol was to be sent packing, who might replace him at White Hart Lane? Well the obvious candidate would be Juande Ramos at Sevilla.

Ramos has already been linked with the job, half way through August but that rumour never materialised. Former Spurs favourite Jurgen Klinsman is another name been mentioned, and I would personally love to see how the German would do. He performed miracles with the German national team during last years World Cup getting them to Semi's and I would love to see his managing style in the Premier League.



  1. DK said,

    The board acted like sneaky little children in their ridiculous public pursuit of Ramos, and as a result Jol lost all credibility with his players. The board now have no choice but to sack him if they ever want Spurs to get anywhere near Europe again.

  2. yeah agree with you dk. I thought the boards decision to go and talk to Ramos has totally ruined Jol's carrer at Spurs
