Stoke City: Man in the mask Charlie Adam up for his Potters pain...

M ARK Hughes, not a man to wince easily at an on-field collision, appeared to think Charlie Adam was being a bit of a wuss when he went down in training this week.But it wasn't long before even Hughes was sympathising with Adam and a nose which, it turns out, was broken in no fewer than four places in a collision with a team-mate on Monday.It's one of those things in training, he reflected. At the time I just thought he had a bit of a nose bleed.The ball fell between him...

Stoke City: Charlie Adam nursing broken nose

CHARLIE Adam has suffered a suspected broken nose in training following an accidental collision. But the club is hopeful that his injuries will not prevent him being available for Saturday's visit of Newcastle. Adam was rushed to hospital in pain following an apparent clash with a goalkeeper's knee yesterday and subsequent X-rays point to a fracture. But the Scottish international has the option of wearing a nose guard to protect the injury if approved by a doctor.

Lou Macari: Stoke City's Charlie Adam looking like a marked man...

CHARLIE Adam has been around long enough to realise he will now be the story whenever he goes for the ball and doesn't come away with it cleanly.Whether he likes it or not, he seems to have acquired one of those reputations that are very difficult to shake off.He's only just come back from a three-match ban after retrospective punishment for landing on Olivier Giroud's leg in Stoke's home win over Arsenal on March 1.We are now in an age when everything comes under the microscope, and when TV is...

Stoke City Extra Time: Is Charlie Adam another red card waiting...

IS it time for the manager to have a quiet word in Charlie Adam's ear? The mercurial Scot can always be relied on to make things happen whenever he's on the pitch. More often than not those things are good, potentially match-winning in fact. But there is a side to his game that could cost him again before too long. He's just coming off the back of a three-match ban for treading (not stamping as some would have us believe) on Arsenal's Olivier Giroud. And in only his second game back on Saturday...

Chelsea 3, Stoke City 0: Jose Mourinho goes easy on Charlie Adam

Chelsea 3, Stoke City 0: Jose Mourinho goes easy on Charlie Adam

CHELSEA boss Jose Mourinho declined to criticise Charlie Adam for the challenge which cut short Andre Schurrle's contribution to his side's 3-0 win over Stoke this evening. Replays suggested Adam made contact with the ball before his natural momentum carried his foot through to land on Schurrle's boot. That didn't stop Mourinho being primed by after-match questions for a potential attack on Adam. But he responded: I like aggressive football and I cannot go inside the player's brain to make...
