See all condition definitions - opens in a new window or tab Whisked away to Burnley as a teenager after the north-east clubs took their traditional path of rejecting a local star, Adamson started as a winger but soon switched to half-back.
Intelligent, tough, with a rare ability to pick a pass, he quickly became one of the stars of the team that took the League title in As a coach Adamson was ahead of his time, a thinker and a tactician. Unfortunately the economics of football had changed since his playing days and small-town clubs such as Burnley now struggled to compete with the big-city sides.
The resulting financial pressures brought Adamson into conflict with Burnley chairman Bob Lord. Sadly it was never performed. Away from Turf Moor, Adamson never really settled.
A spell at the side he had wanted to play for as a boy, Sunderland, ended after a couple of inconclusive seasons, the appointment at Elland Road in was fraught with problems from the off. After Leeds he did not work in football again. Adamson continued to live in Burnley, but was so bitter about his treatment by Lord he refused to go and watch even after his nemesis had departed.
