Defender on the move

7:28 pm
I think the wisest news I've heard this festive period is that Harry Redknapp's trying to get Jonathan Woodgate a loan move so as to beef up his fitness and especially match fitness. It also gets him off our wage bill until he's back to his very best.

I still remember the Carling Cup winning goal against Chelsea as though it were yesterday. I also remember a few pundits claiming that the King/Woodgate partnership was the very best in the Premier League. How we miss those fine days when we had a settled centre-half pairing.

As this is the time for dreaming, do you think we can have a good Christmas? We face Villa away, whilst tackling Newcastle (is the honeymoon period over?) and Fulham at home. Surely we can take seven points from those three games, especially as it looks like our injured lads are on the mend?

Merry Christmas fellas.

Where has our Bentley gone?

6:08 pm
With the season entering November, David Bentley has had just one Carling Cup appearance in which to persuade Harry Redknapp he's worth a place in the Spurs first team. Bentley can't afford to have another season playing reserve team football and if things don't improve on the field, maybe our midfielder will be on his way out of White Hart Lane in January.

We know that Bentley's got talent, and we all know that the the lad has some temperament issues that have put him in the papers for all the wrong reasons in the past. Last season, Bentley was accused by Harry for showing a lazy attitude in training, contributing to his lack of first team action.

Bentley missed out to Aaron Lennon for the role on the right side of midfield for much of last term and this season looks set to be a similar story, and the Betfair rumour mill suggests he could be moving on soon.

On his day Bentley can be a match winner and when given a run in the first team he has the ability to change a match. He showed that during his three years at Ewood Park, where Mark Hughes brought out the best in the precocious talent.

If Harry does decide to sell Bentley in January then there is sure to be a host of clubs interested in the player. Transfer rumours suggest Fulham have been monitoring the situation since last season and may decide to make an offer in the New Year.

Some see it a shame for us Spurs fans to lose Bentley after never really seeing the best of him? I don't view it like that. If a player isn't willing to give his all, he knows where the door is. There is enough talent in our squad to cover his departure. Aaron Lennon has started to produce the form he showed in the early parts of last season and behind him are the likes of Niko Kranjčar (who needs a game or three) and Giovani dos Santos, who could and has played on the right.

Spurs must keep in mind Bentley's knack of coming back to haunt his old clubs. Arsenal fans can vouch for that after seeing the midfielder score a 45-yard half-volley in the 4-4 draw two years ago. If he does move, Bentley would love nothing more than to prove Redknapp wrong. David would be forgetting that you can't technically prove your former manager wrong by performing well for another club.

Spurs Priorities

7:24 pm
Despite the fact Tottenham are clearly in with a massive chance of making the knock-out stages of the Champions League, Harry Redknapp and his side have shown they are fully focused on matters back home.

It's clear to me that domestic dominance is a more important quest than pursuing what the Champions League betting suggests would be an unlikely European triumph.

It's a tough balancing act to pull off. Harry Redknapp and the Spurs players will want to do as well as they can in the Champions League, but at the same time, ensuring they qualify to play in it again next season.

The fact Redknapp was prepared to play Ledley King against Fulham, rather than at the San Siro, is a clear sign of which competition he wants his side to be stronger in this season. Either that, or Harry's already played the match in his head and we have lost.

Our win against Fulham came despite us not being at our best. I suppose this shows that the team is able to dig deep in order to achieve the sort of result that few Spurs teams in recent years would have been able to pull off. A glance at the Fulham betting will tell you they're a tough side to beat at home, plus, they were unbeaten all season, until we came along.

Having said all this, the fact that Spurs have spent such an impressive amount of cash to strengthen their squad in recent years means that we surely should have no worries when it comes to putting out a top side in either competition, even if this means we need to sacrifice the success we have achieved in previous years, especially when it comes to domestic cup competitions.

Wouldn't you prefer that we do well in the Champions League rather than Carling Cup success? It seems to me that Harry is doing the right thing.

A Jolly time for Fulham fans

7:02 am
Fulham fans know Roy Hodgson left big shoes to fill as the club's manager, but they should be delighted that Martin Jol looks set to be the man given that task. No managerial shoes are too big for the burly Dutchman, who has all the attributes to be a major success at Craven Cottage.

English-speaking bosses with Premier League experience are a rare commodity and the Cottagers are right to emphasise Jol's success as Tottenham manager. Fulham's Premier League odds suggest they could face relegation this term, but Jol should be able to sort things out.

Two fifth place finishes with us, comprise an ideal CV for a prospective Cottagers boss and Fulham will see the poaching of a top level coach from a European giant as a significant coup. Ajax's loss would certainly be Fulham's gain.

The next manager football betting still makes Jol favourite to take the job, despite reports he has agreed to stay with the Amsterdam club. Clearly, Fulham need to do some work, but they seem confident of getting their man.

It might also be good news for Spurs fans. Not only will it give us the chance to see a much-loved figure up close again - he will be given the warmest of welcomes at White Hart Lane - but it also opens the door for a return to the club.

Jol stated that he had "unfinished business at Tottenham" when he was deviously driven out of the club and his dream of one day returning has come one step closer. A successful two or three years as Fulham manager might make him the ideal candidate to take over from Harry Redknapp, who has not-so-secretly been coveting the England job.

The relationship with Daniel Levy would need to be mended, but one senses the Chairman is not emotionally driven, especially after admitting that bringing back Hoddle as manager didn't work out as he had imagined. If bringing Jol back is the right thing to do for Spurs, Levy and co. will happily eat some humble pie. There are plenty of Tottenham supporters who hope that he does just that, if the chance arises.

To be honest, I am not one of them. I loved the guy when he was here. His charisma really rubbed off on you. I had the pleasure of meeting him via his nephew, Robert, at the Great Ormond Street Charity Dinner in December 2006. He was a real gentleman and his wife, Nicole, also loved living in London and seemed to know an awful lot about Spurs.

But for footballing reasons, I wouldn't want the Martin Jol that managed us previously. Martin himself has said that he made mistakes and has learned from them. If Martin has learned to inculcate a plan B, I would welcome him back. I suppose we'll have to see how he earns his spurs in the Fulham hot-seat.

Above all, if BMJ is to become the Fulham manager, I wish him the very best of luck.

Jol in for Keane

9:39 am
Even though Big Martin Jol has yet to be named as Fulham's new manager, The Telegraph have our former boss down as already having lined up a bid for Robbie Keane.

If we are to believe all the reports, it looks as though Jol will be Fulham's new manager before the end of this week. I also think The Telegraph may be onto something here.

Jol was always an admirer of Keane and Robbie, on various occasions, spoke highly of Martin. Both Robbo and Keano spoke out about the way Jol was treated by the Spurs Board after that embarrassing affair.

Maybe this is the end of the line for Robbie Keane? If so, I do wish the lad well.

It will feel kind of weird seeing Jol in Fulham's dugout, won't it? It'll also be interesting to see how Martin fares in the Premier League. Ajax are in financial meltdown, so I can see our old boss swooping in for some of his former players.

Maybe Luis Suárez will be back on Harry's radar, now that Joe Cole has moved up north (for footballing reasons of course).
