    Last night

    First off I'm a Newcastle fan ok, I haven't come here to take the p***, I know it must be a bad enough time for Spurs fans already. On last nights perfomance it's pretty easy to see where your problems are and I think that if you sack the manager things would get even worse. Your defence, mainly Dawson are shocking, no belief or confidence and it shows. When the score went to 2-1 you could see how Spurs improved clearly with a little bit of belief. In hindsight yeah maybe you should have invested in more defenders rather than Bent. I just wanted to say keep your faith, the Premiership needs institutions like Spurs,not the likes of Sunderland and Derby etc, or it's just going to deteriorate. Sure that as soon as your injury crisis is over things will turn around.

    • No big surprise that a Newcastle fan wants to see Spurs keep Jol as manager,I dare say supporters of the other 19 premier clubs would also be in favour of MJ staying put.

      1 win out of ten(home game against Derby) is ridiculous,he's got to go.How about a straight swap MJ for Allardyce?

      I heard MJ and Fat Sam nearly came to blows after the game,apparently there was a very heated discussion as to who should have the last sausage roll from the buffet cart.

      • What about the last two seasons though ? True you're going through a bit of a storm at the moment but do you really think that Jol is useless ? Up at SJP we almost had a revolving door fitted to the managers office and look what good it did us ! Of course I don't want Spurs to keep finishing above us but if you see in my other post I'd be sorry if you went down too. I think that if you sack MJ now then it could bring even more instability into your team, a new manager will want his own players and style, as we often have experienced, you normally get impoved results for the first couple of matches, as the players try to impress the new boss but it rarely lasts. Once those players cross that white line then it's up to them, certain Spurs players don't have the right attitude or ability at the moment, you've got to be honest about that, Dawson isn't fit to lace King's boots ! Yeah, and Martin Jol's comments about us not being "in the same boat" as Spurs was a bit out of order I reckon, must have been the stress !
