Can someone tell me why everyone hates Comolli?
He's an easy target. What does he do? Is he whispering bad things about Jol in Levy's ear? He's French. Or he's not British? Lot's of people aren't very bright?

it's not a hate .. it's abouy against his role ..
for me, some people, board & Media talking harsh with MJ as he spend £40m and still bad start .. but Does MJ brought his own players 100% ? Don't say our signings are great ... the manager should get his own players and with our current way .. Comolli also should be blamed for poor results, not only MJ !

I dont get it, because the Director of Football role is common place in football, many of the successful teams have them. I dont believe that Comolli should shoulder the blame for bad results! That is always gonna lie with the manager. Unless there is evidence, then we have to accept that Jol agreed to the players..If not then Jol is an idiot.

No he should,

I am sure that Jol gets the final say weather we buy the player in question. But it is Camolli job to scout for a player matching Jols criteria (e.g.LB,CB,ST...so on) and is in charge of the fee given to the club in question (e.g.Southampton for bale)for thepurchase of the player. We know that Camolli is at fault for buying players like Zakora for £8 mill or Bent for £16 which both players were bought for more than their worth.

It is also to do with the Media constantly blaming Jol for bad signings which not in charge of.

To add to that Frank Arsene offered Jol the job as manager Arsene seemed to have more authority then Jol and this seems to be the same Camolli and Jol

p.s he also used to work for arsenal.

Comolli is one of the best appointments Levy has done, and I am so grateful to have him at Spurs. He has signed some really quality players to this Club, and the Club has a big future because of him!

Simple problem at Spurs: "Too many chiefs, not enough Indians," especially over our tranfer policy. . . a'mon avie.

The key to success is buying French/african, and Comolli has brought in Assou-Ekotto, Zokora, Kaboul, Adel Taarabt, Malbranque, Chimbonda. He has also brought in good talents from other cultures with raw talent.

If you see all the top Clubs, they build French/african.
