Tottenham fan Jack McInroy was kind enough to send us a link to his thoughts on Martin Jol. This piece details how Jol got on White Hart Lane and offers a few indications as to why Spurs fans have so much affection for their former boss.
What’s most interesting to me is how Jol brought on players like Dawson, Lennon, Huddlestone and King – Bale is also mentioned in this context – although quite how much success he’d have with Fulham’s young talent depends on whether any of our young prospects are genuinely able to make the step. Equally, given how Spurs fans like their teams to play attractive, attacking football, it will be very interesting to see how Fulham line up under the Dutchman.
He’s a canny operator, good with the media and asks a lot of his players. Hopefully, he can build on Roy’s solid foundations and add to the attacking emphasis introduced by Hughes. Next season could be very exciting indeed if he delivers.
