Top 10 Tony Adams quotes

by | 9th, February 2009

TO celebrate the sacking of Tony Adams – OK, maybe celebrate is the wrong word – by Portsmouth FC, Anorak offers ten of The Donkey’s best quotes:

1. “I don’t actually like people. I’m a loner and if I had my way I’d just walk my dogs every day, never talk to anyone and then die.”

2. “I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t have self-doubt. But I’m walking tall at the moment. I have a lot of faith in myself and my team. It feels like the right thing to do. Is this too deep for the Daily Mail?”

3. “Fergie said I was a Manchester United player in the wrong shirt – I said he was an Arsenal manager in the wrong blazer.”

4. “Bill once told me that I was the best Guinness drinker in his pub. ‘Yes, what an accolade,’ I thought. ‘What an achievement.’ I had won medals and England caps all over the place but this made me really proud.”

5. “I have got no shit to put in another book. People would be completely bored with it.”

6. “I’ve been preparing the boys. I told the centre-halves to get ready with their tin helmets.”

7. “We live in a society of ‘now'”.

8. “There are not many big, big, big players statistically. Is there? Percentage-wise. So there’s every chance there’s going to be more not-good players, yeah?”

9. “Today I am not just Tony Adams the footballer. I am Tony Adams the human being.”

10. “There is still the perception out there that good players can’t be good managers. I think that is total rubbish.”
