Jol`s Bitter Pill

Defeat was a bitter pill to swallow for Martin Jol last night.

Before kick-off the money was on Fulham to qualify for the last thirty-two of the competition but events conspired to throw us on the scrapheap.

Speaking after the cruel last gasp goal that decided our fate, it wasn`t hard to detect the disappointment in Jol`s voice when he commented,

"We were 2-1 up and then 30 seconds from the end we did not have the cleverness or experience to keep it in their half."

"We are very disappointed. Normally you have a few minutes to repair but we couldn`t. It was over."

"It is a big blow. But there were positive things in the first half. We put them under more pressure than in the second."


We did but it seemed to me that we let a lethargy set in after the break and Odense were allowed to get back on top of the game.

Continuing, Jol spoke about that last gasp goal clearly laying the blame at the feet of Orland Sa, when he added,

"It was when Sa had the ball on the break, 25 seconds from the end. Instead of going where the space was and keeping the ball there, he went for goal. He lost it, they had the break and we conceded a goal."

Now I`m not sure if those remarks should have remained behind the sanctuary the dressing room door gives but Jol did have one comment to offer that will please those who are fed up of having Sunday`s ruined, when he remarked,

"It was awful to go out as we did but, hopefully, we will gain something from the fact that we no longer have to play these Thursday matches."

A minor compensation though compared to the glory Europe can offer!
