People, I am no massive Jol fan - I know he makes mistakes and the errors at Fulham threw away a win. However, I see a greater problem that is now affecting our club. One that makes it impossible for Jol and any other manager to ever succeed at Spurs.Why Levy Must Go.
Yeah Jol has his faults but has been the most successful league manager for 20 years.
However, lets now look at or f**kwit chairman:
He allows Jol / Comolli to spend £40 million
He then suddenly decides he wants Jol gone 2 games into the season.
What message does this send out to the players to begin with? Imagine doing your job knowing your boss is not rated by the big cheese - what does that do for your opinion of him? Do you respect him or realise his time is up? What does that do for your motivation?
Levy then "backs the man" but continues to look for people like Mourinhio etc further undermining the boss.
Before the season started we had strengthened but not in important areas like midfield - Bent was never needed and this is Comolli's fault - he is the man responsible for that. Even so we still looked comfortable for a top six and maybe sneak the fourth spot. Now we are rudderless, players know Jol is going, Jol knows he is going - if you know you are getting the sack then will you still give 100% in your job? I wouldn't but I'd make sure I'd get my pay off.
Now view us from another managers view point. We have had our two most successful league seasons for years and yet the board are working behind the managers back. You don't have total control of the team as you have Comolli in the background all the time. You see how Jol is currently being treated., Would you want to come and work for the shambles that is Levy and Fat Kelmsey? I doubt it.
So we now sit in no mans land and I can only see one clear person to blame and that is Levy. Until this worm is driven from our club whoever is in charge will have his hand tied behind his back.
And finally, every managerial appointment Levy has made has been a disaster. And so many on here put so much faith in him to deliver better than Jol when he has done more in the last moth to wreck our season than anyone.
