We have lots of decent midfielders but no real spark or creativity. We are crying out for a decent wide player. In addition, we need a midfielder who can play that killer pass. I have to disagree with Craig Levein's view on the quality of our midfield.

I agree with you!

 

I think Levein said, “ ....we are quite strong in the midfield”!

 

That could mean strength in numbers ie quantity but perhaps not quality!

 

I think Adam is very much on ‘the radar’!!

Started for Stoke on Tuesday night in the FA Cup, played 80 minutes. Good he’s getting game time,  get him match fit so can hit the ground ‘running’ if he joins a club on loan!

 

Chances??

He said today in the Evening News that a deal for one player had fallen through. My guess was Adam, maybe Gauld but seems unlikely?

Meanwhile Adam has played well for Stoke, 0-0 half time v league leaders Leeds.

 

Stoke have changed to 3-5-2. Adam is main play maker, playing central and taking set pieces. They also have new young forward Tyrese Campbell the son of Kevin Campbell in making first league start which helps give good outlet for balls forward. 

 

Clearly trusted and rated by the new manager.

Man of the Match against Leeds today. Doesn't seem like he'll be here any time soon.

If it's da Silva Lopes then I'm not disappointed that's fallen through. Had "Choulay" written all over it.

Stoke v Preston in Championship tomorrow

 

A better indication of him definitely being part of the new manager's plans after he said he changed his formation for Leeds last week where Adam played centre of 5 man midfield.

Yeah. Just saw it and shared it here.

 

I also posted more importantly above on whether he plays tomorrow for Stoke definitely ending any prospect of him moving this month.

Leeds had 71 percent possession. Not sure how many touches he would have had

I watched the Stoke v Leeds game. He did well.  Every set piece. Not sure who got official/ supporters man of the match but he was mine. 

 

My only reservation is with 5 man midfield in mainly defensive performance he got a bit of a free pass.

Can't say I've heard of that before. Is there a deeper reason for it is it just because Michael Stewart is Michael Stewart? (as fair a reason as any tbh)

True. Fair play to the new manager for letting him prove himself but it's a pain for us if it means no prospect of a move. Think we could do with someone like him in that midfield tbf.

Thats fair, I wasn't holding that against him as I'd heard he was a fan growing up but I understand why (at face value) it would appear is if he's suggesting he won't be here. Just ask Ryan Edwards...

Charlie Adam was not involved in Stoke squad today. Word is he got injured in training yesterday. 

 

But that doesn't stop the immediate rumours of him going to Rangers etc. 

 

Stoke fans saying he was missed today as they lost 2-0 at home.
