West Ham boss Curbishley sympathises with Tottenham's Jol

Alan Curbishley has offered sympathy to Martin Jol but concedes most managers must now live with regular speculation surrounding their futures.

The West Ham chief was speaking after seeing Jol come under scrutiny despite leading Spurs to top-five finishes in each of the last two seasons.

"We all know how difficult it is and Martin Jol this week has copped a lot of publicity, and Spurs have," he told Sky Sports News."I think he'll be the first to admit he wants to get on with it now and make sure it doesn't come round again because we all go through it.

"I had a fairytale existence at Charlton for 15 years.

"I've been at West Ham for eight months and I've been very critical of some of the things that have been written about me in the press but you've just got to get on with it."
