Adams: Portsmouth was a shambles

Tony Adams has branded Portsmouth a "shambles" during his time in charge.

The former Blues manager told Sky Sports: "My situation completely changed within the three months I was in the job. All I can say is that there were some really good people down there and I've got a lot of good friends, supporters in particular were 100 per cent.

"It (the club) was a shambles. It's difficult. Perceptions change, we went from money to no money and that's difficult and you do your best, you put one foot in front of the other to try and get a team onto the pitch but when you have to sell all your players it's tough. My heart goes out to Paul Hart as well because he took over when the club was on the slide financially so it's difficult in that situation - if you aint got the tools you can't do the job."
