Adams Keen For Vale Stay

Adams Keen For Vale Stay

In what appears a rather curious statement on the Official Site, Vale boss Micky Adams has reiterated his desire to remain with the club following the departure of Chairman Paul Wildes.

Quite what the objective of producing an article entitled 'Adams Unhappy` on your in house media, which then goes on to offer a series of gripes, is unclear. It certainly wasn`t with the aim of boosting season ticket sales that`s for certain. Regardless of who has owned the club over recent years, one consistent theme has been some unhelpful public statements.

There had been some speculation in the national press that Adams was considering his future. However, despite admitting that the constant upheaval he has experienced during his spell with Vale, he stated that he was committed to his job.

Adams did reveal, however, that he faces an uphill task in assembling a squad to be competitive next term. "People think that we have a budget to take us to the high end of the league. We have the sixth lowest in the league.

"To form a squad is going to be difficult. We`ve all seen what Yeovil have done. It shows that it can be done, but let`s not get carried away."

Recent history has shown that the club must live well within his means and while there will undoubtedly be a large chasm between clubs such as Wolves and Sheffield United and those at the bottom of the food chain, with some astute management, the budget set is a fair reflection of where Vale should be aiming to finish. Despite those recent statements from Wildes that the club would have a budget to finish towards the top of the League, most supporters would be extremely happy with a season of consolidation. Something that could have surely been communicated in a more positive fashion.
