    Will there still be a place for Annie Walker?

    As an English coach I want him to do well, but this is the most outlandish managerial appointment I have seen since Neville got the Valencia job.

    Good luck to him.

    At least Adams has tried his hand at management before.

    I'd be checking to make sure the Granada chairman doesn't have money on them losing every game and going down. Farcical appointment, the guy is clueless.

    Me too, he was a tough tackling, but mostly decent footballer. He had life issues like depression, and alcoholism, but he did something about them, to the point where he has probably helped many others overcome their own issues, and he seems to have overcome his.

    Rather than assume the worst, I hope, we should all hope, that he does well, he was never a dislikeable fella to me. I'll leave that for people like Merson, and Collymore to name a couple.

    A great read about him for those who are interested.

    As central defenders go, one of the best, and by the sounds of it was as pissed as a Sunday league player at the same time.

    I think how he's turned his life round is a great story, and then setting up something to help others in the same or similar plight.

    As a coach, he has a lot to prove, but as a person I think he stands up pretty well, and that article (though a few years old) shows it.

    Not sure about his dress sense however ;o)
