Remember when you were young and sick and your mother could not emphasize enough the importance of taking your medicine? Remember when she said if you did not take your medicine, chances are you might get worse?

I have been sick a lot. I have seen sick people, too. One thing about sick people, even those suffering from the flu, is they tend to talk gobbledy-gook when under the weather.

Which brings me to the Tony Adams affair. Here is a man who has recently gone berserk; and like medieval people he seems to sprout verbal salad on a regular basis these days. In fact, since he has been sacked, he seems to have lost the plot.

If he is not signing for Celtics, he contradicts and undermines the efforts of a club we know he loves: Arsenal. His recent public misgivings for the Belgium defender is a case in point. And by the way, apparently he's the Chief Scout for Wenger.

The issue of medicinal adherence seems to have been lost on poor Adams. I am sure he feels neglected  by the world and needs some love. But surely this is not the way to endear yourself to potential paymasters.

I hope for his sake, the great leader we know in Adams will take his medicine, and go from cuckoo land to lead the Arsenal—to the holy grain of the Championship!
