We think it's a lookalike, or perhaps the Fulham manager has pre-match duties of a different kind?
Afterwards he told the BBC:
"We worked hard but we didn't have the rub of the green. I don't want to see this club be at the bottom of the table. I know we can do a lot better. I think we will be OK but this is a blow. Cardiff are not a team that are going to be in the top six and we have to win these games."
Reassuring. But maybe Jol should come clean and tell us about his pre-match stewarding duties?
This photo was taken by a Cardiff City fan outside Craven Cottage before the game. Is it just me or is Martin Jol manning the gate on the left side of the picture?
