Tony Adams: Has questioned Arsenal's choice of chairman

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.

eah, that'll do nicely. Guess they're feeling pretty flush after the World Cup and see a few successful years ahead with our new manager. Get Vidal in asap now, and let's get things back on track.

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.
