So, the expected happened on Sunday and Manchester United beat Tottenham Hotspur and yet Spurs boss, Martin Jol, still has his job.
Jol had been under extreme pressure from Spurs bosses after dismal performances against Sunderland and Everton. So, why, I ask you, is the man still manager of a Premiership football team ?
Is it possibly because the Tottenham board have realised :
a) Jumping up and down; stamping your feet like a two year old and shouting 'I want Champions League football and I want it now' isn't actually going to get the desired effect?
b) That sacking a coach who is very highly regarded within the football industry and who got Spurs into Europe two seasons running is not going to send out the right signals to potential replacements?
c) The season is only two weeks old. Only a bunch of cowardly incompetents would sack a manager after two weeks?
d) That Martin Jol is actually a damn fine manager who has done extremely well for the club and should be given the opportunity to show he can take it one step further?
e) All of the above.
