Adams lunges forward and turns the corner,
This review is from: Addicted (Paperback)
I've always been a Tottenham fan and you can probably understand that i was a bit skeptical using up my quality time in reading the autobiography of an Arsenal player.How I was wrong..very wrong. I always admired Tony Adams mastery amongst the famous Arsenal Back Four (Adams, Winterburn, Dixon, Keown. I never liked the Donkey chants even those by the Spurs fans because he a vision which even the legendary Gary Mabbutt didn't have. His description of his failings and how he adapted his style of play as per George Graham's edict was very interesting.
His candid description of his fall into alcoholism is the best part of the book and like his footballing attitude, he had the guts to move forward.
It's good to laud a player who plays for your favourite team but its better when you respect a player from the other side. That said, Tony Adams falls in this category.
