People are already sticking the knife into Tony Adams after humiliating loss

That was not the debut he was hoping for.

Tony Adams' first game in charge of Granada took place on Sunday night as his side hosted Celta Vigo at Los Carmenes. Truth be told, it wasn't the debut that he was hoping for.

Granada succumbed to a 3-0 defeat as a goal in the first half, combined with two more after the break, have left Adams' side seven points from safety with only six games remaining.

It always takes time for a new manager to get his message and ideology across to the players but time isn't a luxury that the Arsenal icon has. Granada are deep in a relegation dogfight and games are running out.

If the club were hoping for the initial 'bump' of an improved result, it didn't happen.

It's worth noting that Celta Vigo are a very accomplished side that have beaten Barcelona, Shakhtar Donetsk, Panathinaikos and Valencia this season - they also held Real Madrid to a draw in the Copa Del Rey - but Adams didn't get much sympathy after the 3-0 defeat.

The former Wycombe Wanderers and Portsmouth manager will be targeting future games against Osasuna, Espanyol and Malaga as opportunities to pick up points - you can probably forget about their fixtures against Real Madrid and Sevilla.

Nevertheless, as much as it is still possible for Adams to rescue the situation, observers on social media don't seem that confident.
