Jol's tall order

Martin Jol could be thrown into further crisis tomorrow when Spurs travel to Anfield - where they haven't won since 1993 (14 years!)
The Tottenham boss needs a win to preserve his threeyear reign at White Hart Lane following a woeful start to the season.
Jol has overseen just one Premier League victory in the first eight games of the season - at home to rockbottom Derby - despite successive top-five finishes in the last two seasons.
Not since Ossie Ardiles' stylish team emerged victorious thanks to Teddy Sheringham's double-strike back in August 1993 have a Tottenham side nicked three points from Anfield. Nigel Clough put Liverpool ahead but Sheringham sparked a comeback which pushed Graeme Souness closer to the sack while Freddie Mercury topped the charts posthumously with 'Living on my Own.'
Even before that rare win they have to go back as far as 21 years to 1986, when Clive Allen's solitary strike helped David Pleat's side defeat the previous season's double winners.
Pleat led the north London club to third in the table and an FA Cup final appearance as Chris Waddle and Glenn Hoddle supplied ammunition to Allen, who finished the season with 49 goals and the Player of the Year award.

utusanLFC : so if the records can be trusted, the only factor that Spurs can win is when LFC refused to win. Yeah... simply repeat their sorry game like when they were embarassed by Marseille.... hmmm
