Spurs to do Jol a Gross disservice?
Tuesday’s newspapers are reporting that, just three games into the new season, the man who guided Tottenham to two fifth place finishes in successive seasons could be replaced by Sevilla coach Juande Ramos.
It’s true that Tottenham have made a poor start, with two defeats and one win so far, but Jol remains a popular figure and Spurs bloggers have reacted with incredulity.
“I simply can’t comprehend why there is serious talk about replacing Martin Jol as manager,” begins a piece at Push and Run and similar sentiments are on show all over the web.
With the fans still firmly behind him, shouldnt Jol at least be given a full season to prove himself with a new squad? The last manager to leave White Hart Lane this early in the season was Christian Gross in September 1998. Surely serving Jol a similar fate would be doing the man an immense disservice?
