All indications are Martin Jol is heading back to the Premiership.
The former Spurs manager who presently coaches Ajax has been in negotiations with the Cottagers and he maybe announced as manager by the end of the week. Other contenders for the Fulham job included national team coaches like Sven Goran Eriksson (Ivory Coast), Ottmar Hitzfeld (Switzerland), and Bob Bradley (USA).
Jol was quite successful at Spurs and in his second season (2005- 06) almost led them to a fourth placed finish but on the last day needing a win against West Ham, ten Spurs came down with Lasagna Diarrhea in one of the most bizarre episodes of food poisoning.
A listless Spurs team lost against West Ham while Arsenal, the team they were hoping to displace trumped Wigan, 4-2 to sneak into fourth place. Conspiracy theorists suspected Arsene-ic and Old Lace but investigations proved inconclusive.
