FORMER Arsenal and England captain Tony Adams is being widely linked with the vacant managerial job at Yeovil Town.

Adams is currently out of work after recently seeing his 106-day tenure as boss at Premier League side Portsmouth come to an end following a string of poor results.

Only on Thursday night, just as rumours began to reverberate that Russell Slade's days as the Glovers' boss might be coming to an end, I received a text message saying that Adams had been spotted at Huish Park earlier that day.

With a veil of secrecy hanging over Huish Park following yesterday's departure of Slade, who knows what the truth is and there will be more wild guesses as to the identity of the next Yeovil manager.

And no doubt there will be various rumours started among fans saying they have spotted a whole list of well-known football names in a supermarket close to Huish Park.

Other names being talked about as possible successors to Slade are ex-Cheltenham Town, Burnley and Stoke City boss Steve Cotterill; former QPR, Plymouth Argyle and Leicester City manager Ian Holloway; ex-Yeovil player and Reading, West Ham United and Charlton Athletic gaffer Alan Pardew; ex-Torquay United manager Leroy Rosenier; and experienced boss John Ward, formerly of Yeovil's League One rivals Carlisle United.
