Can Granada be stepping stone for Tony Adams into Arsenal job?

I am not suggesting that the former Arsenal and England centre back Tony Adams is just a small step away from being ready to take on the role of Arsenal manager. Far from it to be honest, but if he could learn the skills needed and prove himself there are few people that Arsenal fans would prefer to be in charge.

I still very much doubt whether that will happen, especially anytime soon, but even having a club legend like Adams working for Arsenal in any capacity would be fantastic and if it was going to be in a position where some of his famous leadership skills could rub off on the current players it would be as welcome as a cold beer to man just finishing a long trek through the Sahara desert.

Tony┬┤s coaching career thus far has not exactly set the world alight. His record has been decent but all with struggling clubs which would make a move to Arsenal a huge step up in class. Maybe not for long though, as our former captain fantastic has been handed the reins at the Spanish La Liga club Granada who are deep in relegation trouble.

Imagine if Adams does well. Could that be the first step in arguably our greatest captain coming back to manager Arsenal one day?

    Both teams are pretty poor so….. yeah why not

  2. Noel says:

    Seriously Tony Adams.. Holy cow, what are we becoming. A joke football club with zero ambition.

  3. Budd says:

    At last a piece of writing I enjoy. Not sure if Mr. Arsenal will pull Granada out of the relegation but what i will do until the end of the season is to follow them (and cheer) and see if they make it. Congratulations, Tony Adams!

    I hope not.

  5. Twig says:

    Everyone is on about Viera, Henry or Adams taking over from Wenger. But my burning question is why not Wiltord? Any legitimate reason why not? Joke club

  6. Walter Clunk. says:

    Adams of course is already closely
    involved with the club similar
    to Garry Neville’s involvement at Valencia.
    However getting a team from 19th to 17th
    is hardly the sign of the next Guardiola.

  7. ThirdManJW says:

    Adams has only ever been a great player, but a poor manager. We need an experienced, quality manager.

  8. We are on freefall and falling at the speed of light, not even sure if SAF himself could save this Club sorry but Tony Adams is not the answer…..things are not looking good….the silver lining and the light at the end of this very dark tunnel will be once the money making machine (the deluded one) leaves, no CL money, slow season tickets sales, Satan Kroenke might decide to leave himself and hopefully either the Russian or the Nigerian will buy the team…right now is just a wishful thinking but the possibility is out there

  9. Not even SAF can save us from this debacle, sorry but Tony Adams is far from being the answer…….but is worth a try bringing a new Manager we don’t need to splash cash a good Manager might do something with this team….

    Sack Wenger. Get an interim coach till end of season and appoint Enrique in the summer. Interim coach like Mancini, Pellegrini. That is what we should do. But Ivan does not have the balls to do the right thing.

    Adams, great captain in his day and I would welcome him in a coaching capacity for our defence to learn from, but manager, never.

  12. frank says:

    Obviously we need a change in management and my two picks would be either Simeone or Alligre.
    I was slated for saying this before but we might need a transition manager for 1-2 years as part of our rebuilding of Wengers mess. Like Man U did with Moyes, a manager with Premier League experience and I heard a rumour of Brendan Rodgers (no thanks). I would consider Koeman or Pulis. I would be really interested to see what Pulis could do with some money and a bigger squad. Ranieri could be another option.
