Ok fellow Vitalists I like many other on here have been giving my opinion as to whether Tony Adams is the right man for us.
However! This has been mainly on my gut feeling, so I thought I’d dig out some figures to back up my reasons that I think TA is not the man to lead us forward.
I do think that in the harsh facts-driven world of Football where ONLY points on the board count. These stack up AGAINST Adams I’m afraid.
People including myself have said that we have had a miserable run since before the Cup Final. So, to back up this theory I have gone back 18 games into last Season to make up a complete season when added to the 20 we have now played in this.
I do hope that this is clear so far? I’m starting to confuse myself.
Tony Adams 1st:
12 games 10pts…Ave per game 0.83
Multiply by 38 = 31.66pts enough for 19th position over the last two seasons.
If we take his Ave per game of 0.83 and multiply it 18 times until the end of the season, that is another 15pts giving us 38pts.
Over the last 18 games of last season he achieved 26pts
over the 1st 8 games of this Season he achieved 13pts
Total over 26 games = 39pts…Ave pts per game = 1.5
Multiply 1.5 x 38 games = 57pts Good enough for 8th place last season. EXACTLY the same pts as we achieved last season.
The facts stack up against Adams I’m afraid. Unless we start a massive turn around in our points tally then it really is Fizzy Pop footie for us next Season!!!!!
I’d love to have said the tail end of last Season and the 1st 8 games this season we’re worse than they were. But; truth is they weren’t.
So for all you Adams lovers out there, you better hope your man comes good, otherwise look forward to Ipswich and the like gracing Fratton’s famous turf next Season, and possibly Administration if things really don’t take a turn for the better
