    Jol's just been described on TV as looking Angry, Upset, Disappointed and Dismayed!!!

    This makes be Happy, Pleased, Unsuprised and a tad Arrogant after another poor result from the scum....

    Keep em' comin lads.................

    Oh and, I watched Man U v Spurs from a bar in Spain last weekend. United went 1 up and even their fans seemed to be enjoying Spurs's underachievment!!
    "Martin Jol, Goin On The Dole!! Oh, Martin Jol etc" I think the song went!!

    I celebrated like a madman when Kamara scored the equiliser. The whole goal seemed to happen in slow motion, and when it settled in the back of the net it was pure euphoria! One thing is for sure - I may live in South Africa, but I haven't forced myself to dislike Spurs...I've grown to dislike them.

    This title needs an [R] if you're discussing results as you have in the thread starting post, no matter whether or not you posted the actual result.

    Not I, but that is irrelevant. We have way too many threads started about the results of a particular game.

    One thing aneffective manager must do is get his team to play with some fire and determination. I noticed that Jol never scolds his players; he looks like he wants to. Either do the Reading manager thing and don't give the players any idea what you are thinking, or tell them to get it going.

    Jol is not alonein this; but he needs to lead now.

    Same here. I first picked up arsenal when we got satellite tv in South Africa and I had access to supersport to watch games.

    They just naturally became my most hated team all on their own in the last 10 years. I came back here to the US, and have never had too many encounters with groups of spurs fans(do many of them even exist?) - yet I still came to the conclusion that these guys were real c*nts.

    great day for a fan of Arsenal and Yanks in EPL. Dempsey involved on all goals (1 goal, 2 assists). That was an amazing game even though Fulham just long-balled the whole game.

    I've run into two total spurs fans was the boyfriend of a girl i was hitting on at a Notre Dame bar (she was an Arsenal supporter, I have no idea what she was doing with him!). The other is one of my dads clients (so I don't say much to him so as to not burn business bridges for my father)

    Tottenham seem to be the 3-3 draw specialists. Of all the 3-3 draws I've seen in the last 3 seasons, almost all of them have involved Tottenham.

    Given their problem seems to be in defence, why did Jol go and spend millions on a forward who isn't even in the team?
