Here’s an interesting thing: According to this report, former Arsenal defender Tony Adams (you may have heard of him) has been scouting for Arsenal in Holland. Interesting on two counts I suppose: First, that we’re sniffing around Feyenoord, and second that it’s Tony Adams whose hooter is doing the sniffing.
Since he left Wycombe â€“ it seems like ages ago, but it was just over six months â€“ he’s kept a low profile indeed, so for him to pop up in some capacity working for Arsenal is something of a surprise, to say the least.
Naturally, I would welcome the big man back in any shape or form. His motivational skills and drive were legendary, and his Arsenal CV is second to none. But there’s little evidence to back up any observation that he’s working for us if you read the Sky Sports story in question. He attended a game and “was seen on Monday morning around Feyenoord”. Is it not possible he was on holiday?
Or perhaps he plans to take over from the recently departed Rodney Gullet? He was, after all, seen attending a game and was subsequently spotted “around Feyenoord”.
Two and two, as they say, makes five.
