Re: Bye Bye Jol =]

Ramos would be the best appoinment and choice to replace Jol.

Clayts is right about Klinsmann .... he was the 'front' for the german national team at the WC, the motivator and someone with a bit of personality (hard to find amongst germans :eek: ).

But EVERYONE knew that it was Loew who was the tactician and the 'coach' despite his 'assistant' title.

I doubt he'd take the job anyway .... same for Van Basten.

Bent was a waste of cash .... what a silly amount to pay for an avg player (by world standards).

Bale looks like he was a decent buy and good investment for the future BUT Spur's biggest problems remains the lack of a QUALITY playmaker in CM/AM.

Oh and a GK that can catch! lol :P

Re: Bye Bye Jol =]

To Be Honest Why Would Ramos A Top Quality Manager At A Top Quality Team. Quit Seville To A Struggling Tottenham Team. Why Would You Sack Martin Jol What Has He Done So Bad He Has Put Totteham 5th In Two Consecutive Years Although He Has Made bad Transfers Such As Bent 16 Mill Pffft That Makes Him Just As Good As Henry which Is Ridiculous. Dont You Think Some Of The Blame Should Be Down to The Players. And Not The Manager? If The Players Preformed As Well As They Have The Last Two Years Jol Wouldn't Have The Sack?

Hope Tottenham Get Relegated :D

Re: Bye Bye Jol =]

Despite the widespread speculation that emerged last night linking Gus Poyet with a potential role at Tottenham Hotspur within a new management team following the departure of Martin Jol, Leeds United can officially confirm that we have neither received an approach from Tottenham for Poyet nor a request from him to be released from his contract with Leeds.

Any approach from Tottenham for our assistant manager would not be welcome.

The most important matter for everyone at Leeds United is Saturday's fixture against Millwall where we will be looking to extend our unbeaten start to the League season.

The club will not be making any further comment at this time

Re: Bye Bye Jol =]

Difficult times for Tottenham now I feel. After the way Jol was treated before, I would of resigned then and there if I was him.

But to sack him now, just hours before an important European game was a ridiculous decision.

Give him time ffs, he is one of the best managers in the league and given time would of turned it around. Hem ust of been one of the best Spurs managers they've had for a while, and what he has been through in the past months is disgraceful imo.

Houghton sacked as well, don't know much about him, but he's been at Spurs a long time, and tbh seems quite good.

For Spurs' next game, Alex Inglethorpe and someone else in charge :rolleyes: Inglethorpe, a former Exeter City manager so don't hope for things guys :D Honestly though, Inglethorpe is a great manager, took Exeter to our draw at Old Trafford in the FA Cup a few years back, would love to see him made permanent boss :P

So what next for Jol? England maybe ;)

Re: Bye Bye Jol =]

This was inevitable, I do feel sorry for Jol because he had a good young policy coming through and it was always going to take time, but 3rd form bottom for Spurs isnt good enough - especially with the money spent in the last couple of seasons. Ramos looks set to take over according to all media today. Id like to say farewell to Jol hes been a good manager and a great character to have in the EPL.

Re: Bye Bye Jol =]

Leeds United and Gus Poyet have agreed that in the best interests of the team he will not be in attendance at Elland Road for tomorrow's fixture against Millwall (October 27) to allow the players to fully focus on the game without any distractions.

The club captain, Alan Thompson, who is currently injured, will assist manager Dennis Wise from the bench at tomorrow's match..

The club will be making no further comment.

Re: Bye Bye Jol =]

For any Spurs fans, who are not sure about him, here's his C.V:

Early Years

Juan de la Cruz Ramos Cano, better known as Juande Ramos, has travelled a long road to get to Tottenham Hotspur, and despite his wealth of experience it's only in the current century that he's truly made his mark on the global game.

Like many top-end managers - Jose Mourinho among them - he had only an undistinguished career as a football player, spells with Elche and Alicante proving the high point of a journeyman pro life.

With Elche, he reached the Primera Liga, but it was all downhill from there. Alcoyano, Linares, Eldense, Alicante, Denia - and then a tragic end to his career as a knee injury saw him laid up permanently at the age of just 27.

Still, a career in management beckoned, and thus it was back to Elche to work for their 'B' team, Ilicitanos, in the Tercera Division.

First Impression

Ramos had clearly made an impression at not just Elche but other past clubs as, after scant experience with the Valencian side, he was back to Alcoyano to coach their first team.

It was there that he performed well enough to earn a big break in coaching: a move to Levante UD.

The Granota side were not quite as prominent then as now, but it was still enough to put a 40-year-old Ramos on the coaching map. A magnificent 13-game winning streak will do that to a coach.

From there came a whirlwind tour of Spain, the highlights of which included a spell in charge of Barcelona's B team, a three-season spell with Rayo Vallecano, and a spell with Málaga. It was with the Vallecas side that he hit the headlines, the Madrid team reaching the dizzy heights of the UEFA Cup quarter finals after a magnificent campaign in 2000-01.

Then Sevilla

There were relatively ill-fated moments with the likes of Real Betis and Espanyol, but overall his stock had risen so much that, even after a year out of the game after leaving Málaga, he was charged with the task of taking Sevilla to the top.

The Andalucians had just enjoyed their second consecutive sixth-place finish in La Liga and were about to enter their second UEFA Cup campaign in as many years. What followed surprised even the most optimistic of Nervion fans as Sevilla went on to improve on both fronts.

Things started auspiciously as Sevilla made their mark in the Liga, even challenging for a Champions League spot before finishing fifth. That was a definite improvement, and signalled that the rojiblanco revival was no flash in the pan.

But it was in Europe that Sevilla really caught the public's imagination. After beating the likes of Lille, Zenit and Schalke en route to the final, the Andalucians were faced with Middlesbrough, who themselves had pulled off a few shocks to reach Eindhoven.

Sevilla, undaunted, duly thumped the Teesside club 4-0 to lift their first European trophy, following it up with a 3-0 thrashing of La Liga counterparts Barcelona in the UEFA Super Cup soon after.

The Andalucian outfit, playing exciting football with the likes of Daniel Alves and Fredi Kanouée, were to improve even further the following season.

That UEFA Super Cup had started them on the way to a tremendous ending to 2006 - indeed, they were to be officially named the best team of that year by the footballing authorities and, as attacking play swept through the Rámon Sánchez Pizjuán, they even topped the table around New Year.

A Slight Dip, But More Success

They began to dip slightly as 2007 began but, faced with three battle fronts, the league, UEFA Cup and Copa del Rey, perhaps that is not surprising.

Still, they held on in all three competitions until the very last moment. After lifting the UEFA Cup with a close-fought but deserved win over Espanyol in Glasgow, they went on to finish third in the league, after having a chance of the title until the last minute of the last day, and then sealed a historic treble with a Copa del Rey victory over Getafe at the Bernabeu.

Difficult Since The Summer

It all seemed too good to be true and, as the 2007-08 season began, it seemed to transpire that this was in fact the case. Juande, wanted by Spurs, had been seen talking with representatives of the London side, while Daniel Alves, so emblematic of both the club's play-style and its signing policy, publicly lambasted the club for refusing to let him join Chelsea.

Sevilla suffered heartache both on and off the pitch as the season began; Champions League losses to Arsenal and four straight Liga defeats paled in comparison to the death of young midfielder Antonio Puerta, but still Juande insisted that the Nervion side could recover.

Indeed, they did as they racked up two consecutive Champions League victories and then a 2-0 win over Levante.

Then came his resignation.

Martin Jol was sacked as Getafe ran out 2-1 winners over Spurs at White Hart Lane in the UEFA Cup and Juande, who only weeks earlier had insisted that he had no plans to take the job, confirmed what everybody already knew: he was the new Tottenham Hotspur boss.

He has now instructed his new charges to lift themselves from the relegation mire and return to the top of the table, where they should be. Easier said than done. But Juande's track record in recent years suggests that he could very well be the man to make it happen.

Having built himself a reputation as a coach that likes to see his teams attack, while remaining strong at the back, he has his work cut out at White Hart Lane. The front line maybe in good shape, but Tottenham's rearguard is anything but safe.

At Sevilla much of the success was built on the strength and style of the midfield and that is also a key area for Juande's new club as they have often been criticised for lacking creativity, organisation and backbone in the centre of the pitch.

And one has to wonder if any of his former Sevilla stars will come along for the ride...
