So, that really happened,

Tony Adams is officially the new manager at 19th-placed La Liga club Granada (until the end of the season). And he wore a suit at the announcement .


While the surprise of the appointment was only bested by the shock of Big Tone's threads, the move is not totally, completely, unexpected...sort of. 


Here's the logic: the Andalusian table proppers are owned by Chinese businessman Jiang Lizhang, who has used Adams as  a sort of football troubleshooting consultant   at his  DDMC Football Club Management Company and Chinese Super League side Chongqing Dangdai Lifan.


Prior to his appointment in el sillo caliente (hot seat), the former Arsenal skipper had worked in an advisory role working for Granada, before ex-boss Lucas Alcaraz was dismissed.

While it's not totally out of the blue, the collective emotion of The Internet was still pure bamboozlement, as the man who had last managed at Azarbaijan side Gabala in 2011 took over in Spain's top flight at the business end of the season...
