I have this feeling we have been here before?
The worst kept secret in the world ever - the one that Tony Adams dreams of being Arsenal manager has been exposed…… again, this time by the Daily Mirror.
We all know that Adams' heart belongs to Arsenal - it is bound to after all the years he spent with the club. Who in their right mind would not want to manage such a club, especially if they have been a former player. This is highly likely to one day happen for Adams - but not for a while yet.
During the season just finished Adams revealed how he hoped to get back into management in his own right and said how he would probably be leaving Pompey after only one season. Since that time the talk had been that Adams had enjoyed his time here so much that he would stay for a while longer, the media have other ideas!
Adams' previous foray into management with Wycombe was not all he had hoped for but he has since gone on to pick up knowledge from a few European clubs, before Pompey.
His arrival with Pompey has coincided with a far tighter defence so although I was sad to hear he was considering leaving - when I first heard, I understood why he would want to and still do, but I can not see him leaving just yet, he has unfinished business here, besides Arsene Wenger will not leave Arsenal for at least another year, probably much longer.
I do not think I am alone in thinking that Adams will stay for the time being, but if for some reason he goes after all we will miss him but I would thank him for all he has done - for one very big thing in particular, would we have got Sol Campbell had it not have been for Adams' influence? As much leverage as Harry Redknapp holds I would think not.
Ahh the tabloids are a joy to read, are they not? In fairness though to the written media it was in actual fact SKY Sports that manipulated these comments to initially make me think Adams was in actual fact stating his desire to leave now - even if not necessarily and obviously for Arsenal.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
