With Tony Adams being given a coaching role alongside Thiery Henry at London Colney, talk has begun to mount regarding the former centre-back’s managerial future.

Mr. Arsenal hasn’t had the best coaching experience and, until now, hasn’t appeared interested in taking up a position with his former club. He’s been open to perhaps taking over from Wenger but, apart from that, he’s been pretty distant.

Former player-to-managers have a varied success rate and Tony’s coaching history isn’t exactly impressive. However, could he ‘do a job’ for us?

It’s unclear. However, what is clear right now is that our youth squad has a variety of experienced, class former footballers now coaching them and this can only be a good thing. Whether Tony will decide to pursue the Arsenal job will be interesting. He’ll definitely be facing some stiff competition.
