I thought I’d write an article on here as I’m not getting much time on the internet as I am on holiday in the heat of France. I’ve been trying to keep up to date with all the rumours about the name of our new manager and signing etc but I’m having to make do with the news papers.
The main topic on my mind has to be the topic of Martin Jol. As I’m currently with several Spurs fans I have gained a lot of confidence around this rumour! I had never considered Jol as a contender for the job until yesterday. One particular Spurs fan said, “You lucky Team!” whenever I mentioned Jols apparently imminent appointment. He said that not many Spurs fans will have a bad word to say about the guy. This kind of talk gets me excited and now really hope that the rumours are true. I hope that he signs before the boys go off to Sweden as he will need time to make the team understand his style of tactics. Jol was very unfortunate to get sacked as, after two 5th place finishes in the league, he was let go with out having much off a chance after 6 games. He then went on and did extremely well with Hamburg before moving to Ajax. He would be a good signing as he has experience and a history of doing well.
Another rumour that I wanted to write about is about Steve Sidwell who is also meant to be arriving at The Cottage soon. He would be a decent signing. He hasn’t really has much of a chance at Villa and might be able to re-ignite his career at Fulham.
