MARTIN JOL has been sacked as Tottenham boss with Juande Ramos expected to succeed him.

 

Spurs finally lost patience with Jol and agreed severance terms with the Dutchman this evening.

 

Jol was in the dugout for tonight's UEFA Cup match with Getafe but it will be his last match in charge.

 

Clive Allen is expected to be in charge for Spurs' game with Blackburn on Sunday as it will be too soon for Sevilla manager Ramos to take over.

 

Full report and reaction to follow later...

Tottenham part company with Jol

Tottenham manager Martin Jol has parted company with the north London club.

 

Jol tendered his resignation before taking charge for the game against Getafe - a 2-1 defeat in the Uefa Cup.

 

Spurs, who are third from bottom in the Premier League, have won just one league game after spending heavily during the summer transfer window.

 

Sevilla coach Juane Ramos has reportedly agreed to become Spurs' new manager at the start of next season.

 

Spurs reportedly met Ramos in August with a "dizzying" offer to replace the 51-year-old Jol at White Hart Lane.

 

During the defeat to Getafe in a a Group G game Spurs fans gave vocal support to the Dutchman singing "Stand up for Martin Jol" during the match.

 

Jol took charge of Spurs in November 2004, taking over from Frenchman Jacques Santini and under the Dutchman the club twice qualified for the Uefa Cup.

 

Having recruited the likes of Darren Bent, who cost £16.5m, Gareth Bale and French defender Younes Kaboul during the summer, Tottenham had high hopes of challenging for a Champions League place.

 

But Spurs have suffered a disastrous start, recording just one victory - the 4-0 win over Derby in August - and since the reported meeting with Ramos, Jol has faced constant questioning over his future.

arrogance like cocaine can lift a big bald man high in the sky and then send him crashing painfully back down. Yes everyone, Jol was on COCAINE!

:D

 

Seriously though, it's been hilarious to see Spurs in the relegation zone after every football expert in the (London) media had them down as a definite contender for the Top 4, if not the the title...

 

I hope they don't get Ramos, but if they do, I hope he doesn't start at Spurs until the end of the season.

 

EDIT: Just saw that the Guardian reckons Ramos will be installed next week.
