Martin Jol´s grip on his position as Tottenham boss continued to look fragile on Tuesday, with some bookmakers refusing to take bets on him being the first Premier League casualty of the season.

Thrashing Derby over the weekend was meant to ease the pressure but a meeting between Spurs officials and Sevilla boss Juande Ramos reported in Spain led to the spotlight remaining on Jol and his relationship with the board.
