Is Life Too Comfortable Under Jol?

Is Life Too Comfortable Under Jol?

All is not well at Craven Cottage.

Following the 21- home defeat to Swansea, the jeering, chanting and booing aimed in the direction of Martin Jol, doesn`t bode well for the future.

Jol may well have brought in Rene Meulensteen to steady the ship but unless he can get the support back on his side he faces a huge battle to keep his job.

Following the barracking he experienced yesterday, Jol was honest enough to admit these are trying times, remarking to the media in his post-match interview about the barracking and turning the teams` fortunes around,

"I`m not sure - it`s not the best period in my life I must admit."

"I can understand why the crowd turned. They were with us in the first half but then in the second, we`ve gone a goal down, got back, then let them get the winner."

"You can understand the criticism. This is not about me - this is about the team."

"If I cannot handle it, then it would be time to get someone else - but I know these players the best, they know me and there are no problems in the changing room."


Perhaps that`s the answer, perhaps life, despite our predicament, is too easy and too comfortable!
