when a team loves thier manager they dig deep and sort out a result, when a team hates you they get sent off and give up. Watch whats going on over the road daniel. Jose gone Chelsea's season over. Enjoy the birthday and stand by yer man !!

Another Gooner here. I to like Uncle Jol, seems a good man and has done good the last 2 seasons for the spuds, sorry spurs (old habits) I have heard alot from spurs fans about there problem in centre midfield and it showed last night. Enjoyed the game and my heart was banging last night loved the way they ran to the manager. Spurs our better than the postion and will move foreward. Turning point last night for them.

the solution is easy, the players are good and the manager is good our keeper however is shite! apparently all the goals he conceded were his fault and if anyone accuses me on going by radio commentary then look at last season and every other game weve played this season, we concede all our goals in the last minute when robinson appears to think its over. the only goal i saw him dive for was nanis one. even then it was only to look like he cared.

i have one critisum for jol and that is that he hasent bought a new keeper over the summer, robbos lost it since the world cup. i think we should give cerny a chance and when january comes we sell robbo and buy a better keeper befor its too late.

i would not say that conceding 4 goals at home was a result more of an embarrassment for spurs
===============================================

we need another keeper urgently!!!

i could not give a monkeys were arsenal are in the league, they are meant to be in top 3 season in and season out nothing new there. they have finished outside the top 3 in the last two seasons and thats concerning for arsenal fans. spurs are meant to be are an average mid table side but finishing in the top 5 two seasons in a row. tell me arsenal who has mafde better progress in the last two seasons, in terms of ability. i think spurs.

I'm a neutral here but these tottenham comments are so pathetic and ridiculous. I like how you say that arsenal are "meant to be a top 3 side." It's the top 4 not the top 3 you deluded muppet. You're only making that comment because Arsenal have finished 4th the last few seasons. And how is Arsenal "meant to be top 3" and you're "meant to be a mediocre side," when you've spent a net 40m pounds this transfer season while Arsenal have spent very little? That's right, you should be a top4 side this season with the ridiculous amount of money you spent but you're not, you're in the relegation battle and you will achieve nothing while Arsenal will win the league. Celebrating drawing at home against Villa... does it get any funnier?

'They're hiring an open top bus for Tottenham today, they're gonna parade their single home point around and continue celebrating being in the drop zone.'

Heck, some Spurs fans actually criticising Robinson ..... about time too. He's been a good keeper but has really gone off the boil for England and Spurs for ages. He should be dropped, that may wake him up.

As for Jol, I think his days are numbered. Forget coming back from 4 - 1 down, that was yet more points dropped. Someone said give him
10 more matches. I don't think he'll last that long.
If the fixtures I've seen are correct, Spurs will only pick up about 13 - 15 points out of a possible 30.
Hardly top 4 or European qualifying material.

Arsenal fan here, but (oddly) not a Spurs hater. Watched the game on the box last night. It just seems to happen when the manager's position is put in doubt, that sense of tension filters through to the players. Of course, credit for fighting back to get a draw from 4-1 down, but I do feel that Jol's days are numbered, sadly. It usually goes with all that speculation.

Another gooner here. Levy has no-one to blame but himself. It's the same in football as in any other workplace - if the people working for you don't think they have your faith and support, they'll start to make mistakes. It's just a question of trust and confidence. That confidence, or lack there of, will trickle down through the manager and into the team, particularly with all the media attention there was always going to be. You either back your manager, or you don't. Anything less than 100% public support is undermining, and frankly, patronising. Martin Jol has done too much for Spurs to be treated the way he has been over the last month.

You need continuity at a club with ambition, and all managers go through spells when the results don't go there way. For all the good that he has done for Spurs, Levy may have essentially blown forty million quid and put Spurs back a good 5 years.

Unstabillity at Spurs is the last thing we need.Back Jol and things will soon turn i our favour. The perserverance of our lads was truly demonstrated yesterday.We stayed positive and were no doubt the better team. Robinson was appaling,it's not that we can't score or create, it's conceeding goals that is our problem. Chimbonda,Kaboul and Bale all prefer to attack and Dawson isn't half the player he is without Ledley. It's easy to direct the blame at the gaffer but when players are under-perfoming there is nothing he can do.

I Love Martin Jol!

ZidaneLikesDisco -
Agree <ok>

Levy's just letting air out of the balloon while Jol & the team keep puffing!

Sure, there's a lot of stuff Jol still has to get right, but you could say that about ANY PL manager.

He should go hara-kiri & let them get on with it!

I am sad for Spurs. I wanted them to break the top 4. I think they should keep Jol, there is always next season, u need to be impatient spurs board. If you keep Jol, in the long-term you will come good!
