Former chairman Peter Hill-Wood was forced to stand down from the role because of health reasons, and the Gunners have turned to British businessman Keswick to fill the vacancy.

But Adams said in The Sun: "Chips is a great guy but not a very imaginative choice by the owner - and he is 73.

"If they just wanted a figurehead, they should have gone for me. It would have been a better visionary decision than Chips.

"They should be lining up the new manager. Chief executive Ivan Gazidis is in a tricky situation and could do with some help.

"It's time that Arsenal won something again, even the FA Cup or League Cup. But I can't see it, to be honest. They are still not good enough in certain areas of the team. And they are miles off the title."

Adams made 669 appearances for the North London club and won 10 major trophies.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
