Martin Jol resigns

7:00 pm

Former Tottenham boss, well liked by the White Hart Lane faithful, has resigned as boss of Egyptian giants Al Ahly. The 60-year-old Dutchman had only been there six months but results were not as hoped. having said that they won the Egyptian title last season and lost in the Cup Final to their arch rivals.

Once they were eliminated from the CAF Champions League at the group stage they both parties decided it was time for a new direction. A statement was posted on their website announcing his resignation.

"Ahly have amicably terminated the contract of Martin Jol at his request. He will be replaced in the interim by his assistant Ossama Orabi."

Jol - Spurs fan since 10 managing them was a dream job

8:00 pm
Martin Jol has been speaking about being a fan of Tottenham since he was 10 and how it was his fairy tale job when asked to be manager.

Jol has been appointed commissioner at ADO Den Haag. he has now officially joined the supervisory board after his nomination was approved by the general meeting and agreed by the shareholders.

He is still held in high regard by Spurs fans which must be pleasing for him as a fan and a former manager. All things come to an end and it will have been sad to leave but to have managed is surely better than to have never managed at all.

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).

We want his kind at The Lane

The Sun reported that Harry's interested in signing Club Brugge defender Vadis Odjidja. The red-top's article wasn't too enlightening either. Apparently, we're lining up a £5 million bid for him.

The Sun got it wrong in saying that he's a defender. Odjidja is a defensive midfielder. Whenever I've seen him play, he's deployed just in front of the back four and he's fairly adequate at getting stuck into the oppositions face and break up play.

He's strong for his age (20), although his passing could improve and he's quick. From what I've seen of him, he needs to mentally toughen up a bit, but that'll come with time. The lad's built like the proverbial brick-house; the trick is to get him to act like one.

If there's any truth in this story and we do end up bringing Odjidja in, he could become a success. I say 'could', because he's not a great traveller. He moved to Hamburg last year and had a bit of a bad time adjusting to life in Germany. Martin Jol didn't play him either, which, didn't really help the lads confidence.

He's by no means the finished article, but I would value him at £5 million on the few occasions I've seen him play.

If we had the cash, I would go all out for Moussa Sissoko. I've had the pleasure of seeing him in action a lot this season and although his team, Toulouse, aren't playing that well, he's been in great form. If France beat Ireland in the World-Cup play-off, expect this lad to shine at the World Cup.

Last I read, Toulouse wanted £18 million for him. If he does as expected at the World Cup, his fee could rise considerably.
