I have the pleasure of working for myself which means that Sundays = AccountsDay. Here I sit listening to BBC Radio 4, first Broadcasting House, then the Archers and then Desert Island Discs.
Today, it’s Tony Adams (ex-Arsenal captain spending his ENTIRE 22 year career there) talking his way through his life. Recovered alcoholic, the hard way. A hard life, hard start makes for a hard man on the surface.
Talking about his mum’s death (from bone cancer) clearly cracked that shell… his “quip” as the voice faltered was “I’m going…” I am not a fan of footballers in general (overpaid tossers mainly) but Mr. Adams redeems that view.
Fair play to the bloke. And good luck at Azerbaijan side, Gabala FC, where I think that his determination will be of tremendous value.
