Adams' future put on hold

Adams' future put on hold

Tony Adams is putting all talks about his own future, and what this will be with Pompey on hold until after the FA cup final.

Once again when this summer comes round Adams will be out of contract so we do not know if he will stay with Pompey or decide to spread his wings and take up a managerial role of his own elsewhere - which as we all know is something that he does want to do.

At this point in time though, as he has told The News this is not something he is thinking about at the moment, the upcoming fixtures, including the biggest of them all the FA cup final are what he is focusing on: 'I'm not contracted past the end of the season so we'll see. These football clubs do everything at the last minute.

'It's done that way, it always has been and I've been in this game long enough to know how it works, so we'll see.

'I don't know what I'm doing about my future. I'm not even thinking about it at the moment. I'm just getting on with the job to be honest and we've got some big games coming up.'

I would hope that he stays, as the team that we do have in place is fantastic at the moment, but you can never tell what will happen and what changes might be made? Another year would not hurt I do not think, but it depends what jobs come up over the summer, and what he is offered really.

I have a few theories on what might happen but at this point in time, much like Adams I am just thinking about the games that we have left, whatever happens after will be bridges we will cross at that point in time.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Good coaches don't all make good managers. Our success last & this season have been down to many things. Adams has obviously been a massive contributor. He does want to manage again & Arsenal is his top choice for the future. Tony is long ib the footballing tooth & may see another season with Pompey makes more sense especially if we qualify for Europe.

tony may want the experiance of 1 more season with pompey (if we can get into europe) - but he is clearly good enough to be his own man, and will go and manage his own team in the near future.

it makes sense for him to stay for at least another year, he and us would benefit...
i think alot depends on what happens with the main man 'arry this summer really. a sneaky feeling has been growing in my stomach recently - and i have hinted at this this week - that an fa cup win 'might' see him feel his work here is done? hopefully not tho!

If Harry had even a glimmer of wanting to go, I think he'd have taken the Newcastle job. When he turned that down, I'm convinced he'd made up his mind to stay at Pompey until he stops enjoying his football or until the chairman no longer wants him here. My gut says Tony will go in the summer, even if my head says that another year would make more sense for him and us.

(sorry for my spelling in my previous comment - and other comments - i am having trouble with my keyboard being very unresponsive, and missing out letters) - essentially though, as i have said - i dont think he is leaving for some time to come! (maybe when we win the champions league...or get "the treble")

no need to be sorry carpet, i wasnt highlighting the word as being spelt wrong, just highlighting to the word itself as to say 'lets see how ridiculous that thought does prove'... as said i hope that it is proved just that.
