'Arry's praise for Adams and Jordan

'Arry's praise for Adams and Jordan

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 that…

i reckon gtony will need, and want, some experiance managing a team for himself. i reckon he will go and manage, possibly a league one side, just to get the experiance, then a championship side, and THEN, he will come back. he has been absolutly brilliant for us, he has helped make us one of the most solid teams in the premiership, but i just think he wants some time to try managing for himself.

He has managed Wycombe but I agree he may want to be his own man somewhere else. Hi sdesire of course, is to manage Arsenal.

Jordon is the unsung hero, he was the steadying post during the turbulent times when "HR" went to Southampton.

All about team work and we have a good team. Keep them together as long as possible.

Both are heroes. I've thought for a long time what an unsung hero Joe Jordan is, its good to see him get some credit. Tony Adams has done a brilliant job for us but I think he'll be on his way next season to get some managerial experience before the time is right for him to take over Wenger's job. I'm sure he'd be great if he comes back here, but he lives and breathes Arsenal, and I think that's where he wants to go. Good luck to him anyway.

I dont think the arse will let him take over just yet, but given the managers comments recently i also think it is questionable if Harry will be managing pompey next year of his own volition

maybe he will leave it one extra year, and call it a day after champ league qualification and the uefa cup. managers calling it a day after really successful seasons doesnt fare well for the teams, look at recent examples, sam allardyce with bolton, mclaren with boro...
