Martin Jol believes Tottenham's 4-0 victory over Derby has made the fans at White Hart Lane happy again.
After taking a 3-0 lead inside the first 15 minutes thanks to two strikes from Steed Malbranque and one from Jermaine Jenas, Darren Bent then bundled in his first goal for Spurs with 10 minutes remaining.
"That is what we wanted," he told Sky Sports. "We knew we had to start at a high tempo, you know, play our football - and they need a bit of a luck as well and a bit of quality."
And Jol believes that the fans are now back on side.
He added: "We've made them happy again, and that is the most important thing in football.
"We have seen the crowds and that tells you all. It's not about our people, it's always the media.
"But even the media were quite concerned today because they know what I did here, and they know if they give us a bit of time we will do that in the future."
Asked if he was feeling better with some of the pressure lifted, he replied: "I'm always the same, but, of course, it's a better situation to be in."
Jol reserved special praise for Jenas, who turned in a sublime display as well as scoring a brilliant individual effort.
"Jermaine Jenas was probably the best man on the pitch. He did everything right and scored a goal like that."
