Harry Redknapp has left Pompey in the lurch again to take over a "big club". I'm confused because the last time I checked Tottenham Hotspur were NOT a big club, just a club living in the shadows of a truly big club, Arsenal. Anyway, enough of that.
With Mr Redknapp realising his dream, there is the small matter of a managerial opening down at Portsmouth. Could Tony Adams be the man to continue Redknapp's work on the south-coast?
Portsmouth are a smashing club. They have a good side down there and the Pompey faithful are some of the best fans you will find. They are loud and fanatical about Portsmouth, especially that nutter who has about 4567 Pompey tattoo's and a big blue wig. He actually frightens me.
Tony Adams could find himself in the second job of his dreams at Fratton Park, obviously the first job of his dreams would be becoming Arsenal manager. Nevertheless, I'd say Portsmouth would a good job for him to begin his Premiership managerial career.
Tony Adams wants to prove that he can succeed as the gaffer after his spell at Wycombe didn't end the way he'd have liked. We Gooners know how determined he is and his time at Wycombe will have hurt him because he is a winner.
Hopefully the door at Portsmouth may have opened for him to have another crack at managing. If the chance arises it will be a great opportunity for him to give it ago and show what he can do.
Arsene Wenger recently said that he expects some of his former players to give managing a crack, could Tony Adams step up to the plate at Portsmouth given the chance?
Who knows, if he takes over at Pompey and does a good job he might find himself in the Arsenal hot-seat one day.
Keep it Goonerish.............
