I am hardly a Tottenham Hotspur supporter but still have a great deal of sympathy for them in their seemingly ceaseless quest to be a "big club."
Unfortunately big and small clubs alike are all too prone to hit the panic button. I echo the comments of many when I say THFC have sacked the best manager they've had in ages. They have written off this season intentionally or otherwise. Perhaps they fancy their new man is another Rafa Benitez but he likely will be just another Spanish hothead who will be good entertainment value even though the results will not improve greatly.
Good luck to Jol who handled the speculation and questions as best he could.
