The Scottish midfielder of Stoke City, Charlie Adam feels like he has failed to play with his national team and international career in the way he intended it to. Former Scotland coach Craig Levein even turned the blame on him after losing the match that cost him his role when they played some months ago in Cardiff City.
“Listen, you take the criticism on the chin. It’s understandable and it’s the way it goes. I’d probably say I’ve not played to my potential for my country as much as I should have on a consistent basis.
“I hope it can be a fresh start for me with Scotland, that I can get a number of games and kick on now,” he said.
The most recent appearance Charlie Adam made with the jersey of Scotland was back in March 26 when they faced off against Serbia and suffered a 2-0 loss in a disappointing campaign not only for the midfielder but from Scotland as well as they failed to grab a qualification spot for the 2014 World Cup.
He recently suggested Stoke City’s manager Mark Hughes to deploy him more as a central midfielder for the team although the latest results accomplished by his team see him going through an uphill battle in his career not only in the international level but also career wise.
Having scored 1 goal in the 9 matches played this season with Stoke City, he has failed to play the influential part wanted it to be and considering the mediocre campaign the English club are facing with a 17th spot in the Premier League it would be a great timing for Charlie Adam if he can get things going in his favor soon.

After one of the most disappointing seasons since their arrival to the Premier league, midfielder Charlie Adam has said that he is hoping that the club finishes in the top 10 of the table this time around. Stoke managed to get into the Premier league for the first time in their history under the guidance of manager Tony Pulis, who embarked on a physical style of football that was not very popular amongst opposition. However, he was able to get results during the first few years in the top flight. Last season, though, was extremely disappointing for the club as they were almost relegated.
This led to the manager losing his job and he has been replaced by former QPR and Manchester city manager Mark Hughes. Even though the last few managerial jobs have not been good for Hughes, much is expected from him at the Britannia stadium. Adam, who was a mega money signing from Liverpool a few seasons ago, has said that he is hoping that the club get back into the top 10 of the table. Stoke finished in the top 10 a few years ago and qualified for the Europa league as well. Despite spending huge money, though, Pulis was unable to prevent a very poor season.
“It’s a fresh start for everybody and we look forward to it. Tony Pulis has done a good job at this club and he deserves the utmost respect and credit. If it wasn’t for him this club wouldn’t be in the Premier League. So that’s the way it goes and we look forward to a new fresh challenge and the top 10 should be a realistic opportunity for us,” said the midfielder. Adam is one of the well-known technical players at the club, and he will be hoping to do well under the new regime.

Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam has said that the match against QPR during the weekend is a must win for the club in their hopes of avoiding relegation. After a poor second half of the season, Stoke City are extremely close to the relegation zone.
This has led to a lot of pressure from the fans demanding the departure of Tony Pulis, who has not only guided the club into the Premier league but has also kept them in it for several seasons now. However, Stoke have been looking devoid of ideas throughout the season.
Adam, who has not scored a Premier league goal for several months now, has spoken about the importance of getting three points against QPR. He has said that Stoke’s relegation problems will almost be put to bed if they secured three points in the match. However, it will not be easy to do so because Stoke come on the back of just one Premier league win since the turn of the year. They have also managed to secure just five points in the last few months. The club come on the back of the 2-0 defeat against Manchester United last weekend, and Adam has said that it is never easy when they concede an early goal against United.
“It’s a sore one to take but there’s five games to go and we need a couple of victories. We need to go to QPR next week and win. They’re in a bad position so it’s probably going to be an edgy match but they’re at home and if we can stop them in the first 15 or 20 minutes getting the crowd up then we can go there and get a victory. We were in the mix last week and we’re in the mix again this week,” said Adam.
