Stoke City: Charlie Adam hails 'unsung hero' Glenn Whelan

CHARLIE Adam has lavished praise on midfield teammate Glenn Whelan for being the glue which keeps Mark Hughes's side together.Ever present Steven Nzonzi has run away with the end of season awards as the Potters sealed a second consecutive ninth-placed finish in the Premier League.But Adam reckons Whelan has been a huge influence too - and everyone realises that when the iron-willed Irish international is not in the team.When he is not in the team we seem to be a bit ragged, Adam said...

Stoke City awards: Charlie Adam re-lives his goal-of-the-season

CHARLIE Adam's wonder strike – what else? – has won Stoke City's goal-of-the-season. Adam's 65-yard strike at Chelsea in March beat off competition from Bojan and Mame Diouf to win the vote. Now the Scottish international faces an anxious wait to see if his strike will also mop up nationally in various goal-of-the-season polls. It was a great strike, and one I'm very proud of, said Adam at last night's awards ceremony at the Britannia Stadium. It was one of...

Stoke City Extra Time: No time to cash in on Charlie Adam

WHAT next for Charlie Adam?A long-range strike or two in the remaining two fixtures… that's a given.But what about his future?Just a few weeks ago there were three options:1 Cash in by moving him on this summer.2 Offer him a new contract.3 Keep him and let him run down the remaining 12 months of his contract. Well, the last few games have surely narrowed those three options to two by discounting the first.Yes, the club could make a couple of million and remove him from the wage bill this...

Lou Macari: Stoke City star Charlie Adam heading for Scotland...

I think it's only a matter of time before Charlie Adam's rich vein of form is rewarded with a recall by Scotland.I'm told Scotland manager Gordon Strachan was as the Britannia on Saturday and it sounds like he can only have been impressed by what he saw. Adam scored with a header, a bit of a novelty for him, and lasted the course well from what I hear.Scotland's results may have improved over the past year and that leaves them still dreaming of reaching next year's European...

Stoke City: Charlie Adam pipped to award by Christian Benteke

CHARLIE Adam has missed out to Aston Villa's Christian Benteke for the Premier League player-of-the-month award for April.Benteke's five goals in four games grabbed the judge's imagination more than Adam's three in four last month.Not even that wonder strike from 64.5 yards at Chelsea could steal the vote it seems.And no-one can deny that Benteke's goals had more material effect than Adam's after helping to spearhead Villa's on-going escape from relegation.Also nominated were Chelsea's John...

HARD work usually pays off and nobody knows that better than Charlie Adam.I remember seeing him last season stay behind after training on a Tuesday and Thursday to do extra work.Charlie saw for himself there was a weakness in his game and so he'd do some short, sharp stuff with the fitness coach to improve it.Credit to him for putting in that bit extra that people don't see behind the scenes.And now he is reaping the benefits after Mark Hughes said after Saturday's draw with Sunderland...
