Portsmouth manager Tony Adams says he will not quit the club, despite facing a barrage of criticism from fans after the 3-1 defeat by Fulham. (Various)
Another loss or two by Portsmouth and Tony Adams may not have a choice when it comes to leaving Portsmouth.
However, former Charlton and West Ham manager Alan Curbishley has been lined up to replace Adams, with ex-Chelsea manager Avram Grant also in the frame. (Daily Express)

When you need a manager to finish comfortably mid table year after year Alan Curbishley is your guy with his stints at Charlton and West Ham. Grant will always be linked due to being Harry Redknapp’s assistant two years ago but it’s unlikely he’ll decide to start his coaching career again with Portsmouth.
Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso has lifted the lid on the power struggle at Anfield and admitted the club’s American owners and manager Rafael Benitez are involved in a “tug of war”. (The Sun)

England manager Fabio Capello has hinted that he will hand midfielder David Beckham the chance to equal Bobby Moore’s record of 108 caps in the friendly against Spain. (Various)
