Something which I often comment on - as do many, many of you - is the job that Tony Adams and Joe Jordan do at Portsmouth, and this is something that Harry Redknapp has now spoken out about following the praise that has been heaped upon him this season.
Redknapp has gained a lot of praise, and rightly so for guiding up to the FA cup final as well as the upper reaches of the top flight table but he could not have done this without the help he has got, and he knows this and would like to see Adams succeed him when the time comes: 'they deserve a lot of credit. I love having Tony with me. What a player he was, what a captain. The nearest thing I've seen to him as a captain is Martin Johnson.
'I'd love Tony to be manager of this club when my time is up - one day. There's no problem there and I'm not worried about him taking it. And Joe's done brilliantly; you would never get anybody more staunch.
'So I'm lucky to be have two such smashing guys'.
The pair have done a fantastic job here, Jordan is a true unsung hero and does a hell of a lot more than some people might think so I am glad to see him being given praise too.
As for Adams one day taking over, I would not be against this per se I just cannot see him hanging around for too many more years and I do not think that Redknapp is going to be that keen on giving up his post just yet - or will he? Reading between the lines of what he has said is Redknapp hinting at something we do not know, or am I doing exactly that, 'reading between the lines', and too much at thatů
PLAY UP POMPEY!
