After guiding his side to a 3-1 thumping of Tottenham at White Hart Lane, a result that sent Arsenal top of the table while continuing Spurs’ free fall down it, Arsene Wenger threw out some support for his beleaguered opposite number,
“I don’t know the situation he is in. You can only see what the newspapers say. But you always have sympathy for people going through bad periods. It happened to me and everybody. That is where the clubs just have to be solid and support their manager,” he told Arsenal.com
â€œI was very pleased with the quality of our game and the mental strength we showed as well as the togetherness.
â€œI could not fault the team at half time. I thought we had played well we just had not taken the chances. I thought that if we kept the pace high in the game like we did that we’d have a good chance to win the game,â€ he continued.
It would be nice to think that the club and fans are going to support Martin Jol through thick and thin, but after a quick look through various Spurs message boards and blogs it seems that the knives are already out.
