Adams Falls Prey To The Pompey Axe!
The rumours were brewing through the week, and Portsmouth suffered a shocking defeat at home dealt to them by the title contenders from Merseyside. Combined with the poor showing in the past two months, the Pompey pot has boiled over and has led to the dismissal of their manager, Tony Adams.
Apart from the former England captain, the first team coach John Metgod has also been subject to the boardroom wrath, as he too has parted ways with the FA Cup holders.
The Arsenal legend took over the reins after the departure of Harry Redknapp to White Hart Lane, leaving the Blue Army smiling with a comfortable position on the league table. Since then, their run of form has taken a turn for the worse, as they are currently just one point shy of the drop zone.
This dismissal undoubtedly comes in the light of the Blues securing only two points since the win against Blackburn on the last day of November.
A spokesman for the club has been quoted on the official website as saying that the main concern for Pompey is to stay put in the top tier, and that it would be better if a new face took the role of the schemer on the sidelines. Until a replacement is announced, the director of youth operations, Paul Hart, will be in charge until the hunt for a new manager comes to a close.
