Premiership Boss Bites The Dust And It's Not Southgate!

Pompey lost 3-2 to Liverpool on Saturday after conceding two late goals, and the Fratton Park board have opted to remove Adams and first-team coach John Metgod.

The club's director of youth operations, former Nottingham Forest boss Paul Hart, is caretaker-manager.

Former Arsenal and England captain Adams had only been in charge on the south coast since October 25 when he was named caretaker-manager following the departure of Harry Redknapp.

However, a run of just two wins in 16 league games has seen the club slide down the table and they now lie just one point above the relegation zone.
