After yet another Premier League defeat it would appear as though Tony Adams' days as Portsmouth boss are numbered. It has been reported tonight that the former Arsenal defender will be sacked on Monday morning after Pompey lost 3-2 at home to Liverpool on Saturday which was the side's ninth game without a victory.
Portsmouth have been tumbling down the table ever since Harry Redknapp left the club back in October of last year. Adams was almost instantly appointed as Redknapp's predecessor and unfortunately for him it really hasn't worked out. Pompey now sit just a point above the drop zone and are in real danger of being relegated.
Earlier this week it was reported in an English newspaper that Alan Curbishley was being lined up to replace Adams on the South Coast and personally, that wouldn't surprise me one bit. Curbishley has been out of a job for some time now and I think it is the right time for him to go back into management.
This is probably the best for everyone. It was clear for all to see that Adams didn't get on too well with his players. The departures of Lassana Diarra and Jermain Defoe last month proved this and maybe bringing in a new manager will prove to be a massive boost for the club. It will be interesting to see how this one pans out over the next few days so stay tuned to Football Corner for all the latest.
Adams is not to blame - Harry Redknapp is.......he ruins any club he's been with and taps up players.
