Dream on, Martin

Former Spurs manager Martin Jol is again in a talkative mood, this time, he’s talking about returning to Tottenham Hotspur in the future.

The Dutchman told the Sunday Times: “I still have the feeling that you never know. It’s all about opportunities.

“They can say what they like now but in a couple of years I’m not sure the same people will be there on the board.”

He went on: “Wenger: fourth the last couple of seasons. Did he win something? Not the league since 2004.

“Did Arsenal say, ‘You have to win a prize or finish third?’ No, because he’s the man. He can say, ‘I need time’.”

I’ve seen a lot of people saying Jol should have been given more time to turn things around, but as I’ve said before, I wanted him out. I had no confidence in his ability to get us out of the relegation zone, therefore regardless of what he had done in the past, he had to go. Any talk of Jol returning to White Hart Lane in the future is ‘double Dutch’!
