It is a sign of the Londoners' huge progress under Jol - and that, he says, is just the start.
"When I first came here, the club was 15th in the league and had been underachieving for a long time," Jol tells BBC Sport.
"I had one simple ambition - to make this club great again.
And it is a structure that is definitely paying dividends. After missing out on a European place by just three points in Jol's first season, he led them to fifth in the league last year - the club's highest finish in the league since 1990.
"This is our first season battling on all fronts - in all the cups and the league as well - and I am happy with how it has gone.
"No club outside of the top four can boast what we are doing this season.
"Next season we want it again, but with more success."
"Of course it won't be easy, but we have the fans, the name, the history, and we are building a very nice squad. I feel we can get honestly back to where we were 40 years ago. People see the turnover at clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea of course, but it's not all about money.
It is about educating my players that we want to be a top club. We need the mentality that we need to win and perform every single week. And first and foremost it is about potential, and we have that here I promise you."
"You look at the fact that, this season, I have had to play Dawson and Lennon every single week," he says. "They are terrific players, but you can't gamble on one or two players being fit all the time. My ideal squad is 22 first-team players, with four or five youngsters coming through.
