'His passion is needed': Some Arsenal fans want 'legend' back after being spotted at U-21 game
Arsenal legend Tony Adams was spotted watching the U-21 side last night in their EFL Trophy clash against Swindon Town.
Football London reporter Chris Wheatley posted to Twitter a photo of ‘Mr. Arsenal’ in attendance for the young Gunners clash with the League Two side.
Arsenal lost 2-1 to Swindon with Joel Ideho scoring the sole goal for the Gunners on the night. An own goal from Kido Taylor-Hart, however, meant that the hosts secured all three points.
Indeed, was a big night in general for the young talents from the north London side. Folarin Balogun and Tyreese John-Jules both made their England U-21 debuts whilst Arsenal were facing Swindon.
Whilst the game ended in defeat for Arsenal, fans on social media were largely pleased with how the youngster performed against a professional team.
And the appearance of Adams at the game, as well as Per Mertesacker, was of course well some Arsenal fans were happy to see. Moreover, it once again opened the debate of whether or not the iconic former captain should return to the club.
Here’s what some Arsenal fans had to say about Adams attending the EFL Trophy loss to Swindon on Twitter…
Get TA in the boardroom. His passion is badly needed.— Mark Kelly (@SparksK21) September 7, 2021
Should be involved somewhere. Youth set up or something— Robert (@Robert35351904) September 7, 2021
I’m surprised Adams isn’t the manager. I do hope they get him in to at least coach if not manage the club.— Si Oakdene (@OakdeneSi) September 7, 2021
