Tottenham Finally Has a Manager to Cure the “Spurs Syndrome”

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

Tottenham are perhaps the most frustrating big club in English football. Unlike Leeds United and Newcastle United, they have solid ownership even though the decision making of Chairman Daniel Levy, who runs the club, has been questioned. Last summer's spending spree yielded little in the way of success during the 2013-14 season, but with a new manager in Mauricio Pochettino and a new optimism, Spurs could roar into the top 4 this season.

It used to be said that managing the England national team was the ‘impossible job' as there was no way you could ever succeed unless you were perennial winners of the World Cup. That term should now be reserved for the Barclays Premier League, though, as the guillotine fell on yet another manager, Cardiff City's, Malky Mackay, who became the 6th victim of the season.

Fulham

Riether and Duff, and the advantages of defending

Craven Cottage Newsround at related • 0 views

One of the interesting things I've taken from the analysis of the last week or so is that Fulham were foolish to abandon the emphasis on defending. At the top level it's MUCH harder to be a good attacking side than a good defensive one. In effect, all Martin Jol did with his change of emphasis was to weaken the thing we were good at without improving on the weakness.

Felix Magath's appointment as the new Fulham boss brings one of the most enigmatic, controversial and successful Bundesliga managers of the last decade to the Premier League.

Meulensteen Lashes Out At Fulham Owner After Being Shockingly Fired

When I heard that Fulham had fired ReneMeulensteen today I thought it was a mistake. He had only just arrived at the club, replacing Martin Jol, and in the last two games had got a draw at Old Trafford and lost to fourth place Liverpool on a stoppage time penalty from Steven Gerrard.

This is nothing more than another knee-jerk reaction by Fulham owner Shahid Khan, who unfamiliarity with soccer is damaging the club.

They say never go back, but American Clint Dempsey has just done that. The move comes at a time when both Dempsey and Fulham could use a much needed reunion. The Cottagers are currently languishing in 19th place in the Premier League, and although it is far too early to write Fulham off, recent results have not been too uplifting.

Always interesting. This basically sums us up:

Normally I am fairly conservative about suggesting managers should be sacked. After all, if you are going to bother firing one, they should probably be really badandyou need to be able to replace them with someone better.

Fulham have been down the road of fighting relegation before during their current 12 year run of Premier League football. However, it seems every time the Cottagers were threatened with relegation, something either miraculous happened, or the grit and commitment of the squad came through. The current group of players at Craven Cottage however seem to be a hodgepodge of malcontents from other clubs and run-of-the-mill chance signings that Martin Jol has put together, proving a radical departure from the formula that long worked for the West London club.

Fulham WBA reaction

Ruiz hits the bar, the underside of the bar. If that's a centimeter lower it's a 2-0 win, a well deserved 2-0 win.

Or what about Berbatov's second disallowed goal. Nothing in it. That would've give us a 2-0 win too.

There's nothing Martin Jol can do about these incidents.

Fulham did more than enough to win the game and generally, through bad luck, failed to do so.

Well who knows then?

I don't mind Meulensteen going. I never warmed to him and thought he was a bit slick from the outset. It sounds like the Chief Executive had the same opinion and decided that enough was enough.

The trick here is that a season is finite. You have 38 games, no more, no less, to determine your future.

Sharing the blame around

One question I imagine Martin Jol is asking himself a lot is "why have my players stopped defending?"

It's all well and good everyone going "Jol out" all day every day but as per the post-sacking player interview cliche, there's an element of the players having let him down, too.

One by one:

Stockdale is an inexperienced top flight goalkeeper, so no blame to him here.
