Lou Macari: Stoke reward Charlie Adam for achievement not market...

CHARLIE Adam's new contract is a return to the old days in many ways.Too often nowadays players get a new deal because the club wants to safeguard their value and not risk losing them for nothing.But you have to say that Adam's one-year extension to 2017, with an option to 2018, is reward for his end-of-season form.And from what I have seen, and heard from Stoke fans, it's due reward too.Adam has clearly been a big influence on Stoke's fine end-of-season form and thrown in a couple of memorable...

Stoke City: How Charlie Adam hit the target for new contract

Less than three months ago - when Stoke travelled to Chelsea on April 4 - the prospect of a new contract for Charlie Adam would have been unlikely, probably unthinkable.Far more likely was the prospect of Stoke accepting an offer of £2m or so when the summer transfer window opened, cashing in on a player approaching 30 years of age and with only 12 months left on his current contract.How things began to change that Saturday evening at Chelsea, however, as Adam reminded the world of his...

I'M AFRAID Glenn Whelan, Jon Walters and Marc Wilson will be putting their feet up and having a good rest next summer.The popular Stoke trio would have loved to have played in France at the European Championships.But that 1-1 draw against Scotland in Dublin on Saturday means it's far more likely they will now be cheering on their Stoke team-mate Charlie Adam instead.Scotland are certainly favourites now to pip Ireland to third spot and a play-off place for France next year.And I wouldn't...
