Dressing room is intact

While much has been made recently of the potential replacement of Martin Jol at Tottenham, you can rest assured that the dressing room is intact after the impressive away display against Manchester United on Sunday.

Tottenham lost, but it was not for lack of effort. Spurs work rate was exceptional and they deserved something out of the game.

During the week it was revealed that Tottenham had been shopping for a manager, and while it was denied, it’s a lie. A case of plausible deniability, when you have a 3rd party make the approach for you so you can claim that nobody from your club did it. While that is technically true, its also true that they made an approach for Juande Ramos.

But the club has regrouped. No El Hadji Diouf’s here. Lots of positive statements from players and a positive statement on the pitch. There was a lot of concern that the dressing room had been lost, and this game could, in many ways, be the most important game for Tottenham this season. They lost, but they passed a very important test. For me, it was an impressive display.

Should this talk of Martin Jol being sacked finally stop, Tottenhm can finally get on with their season and Martin Jol given the chance he deserves to finish what he started.

Lastly, how impressive were Tottenham’s fullbacks? Chimbonda was brilliant, Gareth Bale showed some great ability and potential.
