Just being reported on Sky News, sounds an horrific proposition.

I think he is seeking backing for a takeover.

Which sounds a little bit vague to me (thankfully).

Sky News have just reported that Tony Adams has approached "the city" to help finance a bid to buy Aston Villa with Goldman Sachs also being approached by him.

Sure they weren't talking about his overtaking?

Whenever I hear him speak he comes across as a tool.

Absolutely no bloody way. The guy is a loon and an idiot at the same time.

His net worth can't be more than £15m at this point in his life. How is that even possible.. no wealthy consortium would trust that drunk.

Remember his views on managing us?

Quote
Adams has had two (very unsuccessful) stints at both Wycombe and Portsmouth but now has no further interest in working anywhere but Arsenal. He said: ďIíve done the lower leagues and itís a different style of managing,Ē he said. ďNo disrespect but I donít want to be Swansea boss, either. They probably donít want me. Aston Villa? Whatís the point? What can you do with them? So itís the Arsenal or nothing and Iím not ready for that.

To be honest why would anybody with sufficient money to buy a Premier League club want to have him as the front man?
