His era was definitely the turning point where we moved from solidly mid-table towards heading to where we are now.

Do you remember the slow “Oh When The Spurs” used to just go on forever... miss those days.I love Martin Jol. After years of being shit we were finally on the right path under him and looking up and not down. It was the last time everyone was completely together and on the same page. The ground has never been like it was in the Jol years. There was no twitter then to encourage negativity either.
Snap, I got in late as well.Queuing up outside and missed the first 15 minutes meant I missed the goal(s?) we conceded that meant we had very little chance of going through... . but still one of my favorite times at the lane.
On the quayside in porto before braga in the wafer cup ..when it really took hold..big enfield skinhead on a chair directing the yid choir ...and the bar owner doing his bollocks as he was running out of beer .legendary dayDo you remember the slow “Oh When The Spurs” used to just go on forever... miss those days.
Agree.The word legend is thrown about these days like confetti, I watched our “legends” game and thought “christ we need to start winning something soon as some of these guys are as far from a legend in the true sense you could imagine....But I 100% put Jol in the legends bracket, that man started something that those who followed have reaped his rewards....#LegendJol
they only beat us through that hugely dodgy pen at their placeSnap, I got in late as well.
The atmosphere was unbelievable, so so proud of the manager, the team and the fans that night. Sevilla were a very good side at the time.
Harry was obviously great for us too, but BMJ did revitalise us without half the talent Harry had. In hindsight scrapping 4th with King, Modric, Van der Vaart and Bale maybe wasn't the greatest achievement.I adored the big lug. He got Spurs, understood what the fans wanted. It's a shame how it panned out but I hope he gets an opportunity to come back to the Lane at some point. I'm sure he'll get a great reception.
Preferred him over Arry even if he never got us into the CL.
When you look at the squad Jol had at the time, and the one Harry had at his disposal, you'd be right on the money there!Harry was obviously great for us too, but BMJ did revitalise us without half the talent Harry had. In hindsight scrapping 4th with King, Modric, Van der Vaart and Bale maybe wasn't the greatest achievement.
He could've been bitter after the way he was sacked, but he is always positive about Spurs, says a lot about his character, should've chinned Wenger though.How he managed to get us to even fight for 4th in 05/06 remains a mystery consisting the years of shit we'd had to endure for years prior.
A great bloke, good at developing talent and got what it meant to manage this club.
