He is confrontational. He loves to wind up opposition managers and fans.
However, he is the Argyle manager so we excuse his bad behaviour. There are times it amusing and times where he goes too far. Personally, all l care about is how this impacts our players.
So far you have to say it brings the group of players together but l do fear he alienates people. If l was Ainsworth for example l would be thinking
1. Why on earth did you sign me?
2. Why have you never given me a run in the side, considering there has been some really poor results in the past 12 months?
I am not convinced Adams attitude and behaviour is any better than a lot of lower league managers we have berated on here but we are fickle fans and let it go mainly unnoticed because he has brought successful results and that means people will forgive a lot of his antics.
Absolute nonsense. Adams stands in the box, arms folded and rarely makes any emotional gestures. He has never been one for running back and forwards making wild gstures at one and all - as many managers do. Some people need to attend more games or open their eyes.
I’m a season ticket holder.
It’s not like he doesn’t have previous. Just look at his record at Ross County. We are talking a confrontation with Chris Powell here, hardly a Steve Evans is he? Powell shouldn’t of grabbed Adams. However, Adams shouldn’t of come out of his technical area and antagonise him. Are we honestly saying Adams doesn’t have any responsibility for his actions and that all those incidents at Ross County weren’t his fault either.
It’s all handbags at dawn. It’s what makes Adams and many other managers tick. It’s like great threatre with the odd occasional bad performance.
