Tony Adams, whilst rehearsing his press conference after the impending defeat by Liverpool, was overheard saying 'back me or sack me' by Pompey Chief Executive Peter 'Twenty' Storrie - who promptly did sack Adams before he'd finished the sentence.
'He no good,' said Storrie this evening. 'I'm all for giving managers time, but much longer and we'd have been in the Conference. 'He no good,' he said again, laughing increasingly hard, and having to be restrained as he fell to the floor, shrieking like a banshee, cackling madly, and finally throwing up at the feet of BBC South Today's Roger 'Roger' Johnson.
Tony Adams, who last week controversially sacked his reflection, was smuggled out of Fratton Park dressed as a very tall hot dog.
It is expected that Portsmouth will follow the pattern set out by Newcastle United, and will flick through a Panini 'Football 81' album , before appointing ex-Manchester United goalkeeper Gary Bailey.
