Tony Adams has been very vocal in his thoughts that he fears he will not be given ‘the time’ that he needs to be successful with Pompey – and he has again reiterated again today.

With so much talk about a takeover at Pompey – or maybe mere investment – the ideas that those ‘might’ have that come in, if they even do, could mean that they have other ideas on who they want to be the man to lead us forward, and that might not be Adams

I have faith in Adams and can see no reason that if he is given the same backing and support that Harry Redknapp was that he cannot carry on moving us in the right direction – he has the tools that he requires in place, and should any players not fall in line with his vision then they could be sold at a fair price to enable him to bring others in, assuming of course he was given the money!

This takeover business, albeit we have not seen any concrete evidence that anything is happening – but then again we would not until it happened! – things seem to be gathering pace, and something looks likely to happen. Lets face it not all media outlets could be wrong could they, even if some might only be acting like sheep…

My major concern is that it appears that if it was not Pini Zahavi’s consortium that came in – one I am not keen on, nor am I him to be honest, another that is being mentioned seems to have his involvement anyway – so he looks as though he is doing his best to get his foot in the door someway, and the suggestion is that if he got into power he would be looking at a role for Avram Grant.

I have no issue with Grant, and feel he was treated unfairly at Chelski, but if brought in as a director of football the chances are it would only be a matter of time before he took the reigns here as he did at Stamford Bridge. As I say I have nothing against the fella but the thought of him managing the club does not really inspire me, or inspire me in the way we would play football…

At the end of the day no matter what happens we cannot influence things can we, I just hope that Adams is given the time that he needs, as he can be a successful manager and I hope we let him be that successful manager here.

The best way for him to retain the faith is to get results – which to be fair but for some stupid mistakes he would have got already and we could have easily been sitting at least 5th by now, then again with the games we have coming up there is no reason why we cannot be ‘the best of the rest’ come Christmas!

PLAY UP POMPEY!
