Charlie Adam ended Southampton's hopes for Champions League football with his match-winner in the 84th minute.
The halftime substitute came on for an ineffective Stephen Ireland and made an immediate impact as Stoke City looked a much better side. Within two minutes of the break Mame Biram Diouf equalized Morgan Schneiderlin's 22nd minute opener. The Saints had the better of the match on paper as far as possession, shots, and shots on target but it was Adam's 84th minute goal that decided the tie and sentenced Ronald Koeman's squad to a battle for a Europa League spot that they may or may not actually want.

Charlie Adam started the season slowly but has come on over the past two weeks to score well for Stoke City and fantasy managers alike.

The former Liverpool man seemed to pop up everywhere for Stoke City as the Potters broke out of the doldrums with a 2-1 win over Swansea City at home. Adam, always a decent option since he takes kicks and penalties, cashed in on a penalty against Lukasz Fabianski and added another shot on target, two corners won, three interceptions and two tackles won for an impressive fantasy day. For all of that he actually finished one point below his Week 7 output. Could be that he's found his niche at Stoke and is in line for a string of strong performances.

Charlie Adam scored a late goal to give Stoke City a 2-1 away win against West Brom.

Ryan Shawcross impressed in what was an overall poor match and fans were chanting for him to be sent to Brazil as part of England's World Cup squad. Adam's game winning goal was enough to bring Stoke to 10th place in the Premier League table, a position which will surely be considered a success this season. Despite the loss, West Brom managed to stay in the Premier League after a dreadful season. They will need to improve drastically next season if they want to remain in the Premier League again.

Charlie Adam broke his nose in training earlier this week, and if he's available to, ahem... face Newcastle, it will be with a protective mask.

Adam has lost his starting place in the Stoke side as Mark Hughes has gone with a trio of Steven Nzonzi, Glenn Whelan, and Wilson Palacios. It's hard to imagine him messing with that formula this weekend, especially after this incident.

Charlie Adam is available to Stoke City this weekend, but may have to be content with a place on the bench if Mark Hughes names an unchanged side from their 4-1 win against Aston Villa.

Adam and Stephen Ireland give manager Mark Hughes options, but it's hard to change a winning team and Stoke might name the same XI against Hull City.

Charlie Adam, who was charged with violent conduct for a stamp on Arsenal's Olivier Giroud, had his appeal rejected by the FA and will miss Stoke's next three matches.

Adam will miss winnable matches against Norwich City, West Ham, and Aston Villa.

Stoke City midfielder, Charlie Adam, has been charged with violent conduct for a (alleged) stamp on Arsenal's Olivier Giroud. Stoke "will appeal vigorously against the decision".

Stoke City have a good run of matches upcoming, but would miss Adam's drive from midfield. His ability to pass, and shoot, from long-range was key to Stoke's plan. If he is suspended, that will put someone else - Glenn Whelan? - on set piece duty as well, which will interest fantasy managers.

Charlie Adam assisted both of Stoke City's goals as the Potters were able to grab a point on Southampton's pitch in an entertaining 2-2 final.

Adam made quite a splash in his season with Blackpool when they made the top flight a few years back, and has not been able to find that magic with any consistency in his days at Anfield and now with Stoke, but he does occasionally put it together like he did today. His first assist came on a well weighted through ball to Peter Odemwingie, who finished for his first goal with his new club. He then delivered a perfect corner to Peter Crouch, who broke through the cluster of defenders to head home. Stoke are a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde club these days, making investment a bit sketchy. In their past five games now they have scored two or more three times, and were blanked the other two. They have Swansea at home next.

Stoke City earned their first ever Premier League victory over Manchester United on the back of two Charlie Adam goals as the Potters played to a 2-1 final.

Scoring his 6th and 7th goals of the season, the first came from a free kick that took a massive deflection off the leg of Michael Carrick, but was considered on target enough to give Adam credit for. The second goal came after United had evened the score, when a mishit by Marko Arnautovic landed kindly in front of Adam who smashed a thunderbolt into the top shelf from distance. Stoke will celebrate both their first win over United in the league but also enjoy the end of a three game losing streak. Adam and the Potters will travel to Southampton next.

Stoke City secured a first victory in nine Premier League matches in controversial circumstances against 10-man Sunderland.

Charlie Adam opened the scoring for Stoke after good work from Steven N'Zonzi, before Sunderland were reduced to 10 men after Wes Brown's sending off. N'Zonzi wrapped up the points with ten minutes to go, while Asmir Begovic was largely untroubled in net, making just three saves in the whole match, leaving the Stoke defence to return some very handy clean sheet points.

Despite being kept off the score sheet, Charlie Adam was instrumental in Stoke City's strong performance that resulted in a 0-0 draw at home to Manchester City.

In typical Potters fashion, Stoke kept their defense tight at home and earned a point against the Champion's League club. Adam was bossing the pitch as they say, delivering crosses and key passes and shots that made Stoke look more capable of scoring than Man City ever did on the afternoon, they just couldn't convert any of their chances. When fit and in form, Adam is lethal from set pieces and is an assist machine. He is worth consideration in favorable matchups.

Charlie Adam will miss Scotland's World Cup qualifier against Macedonia with a back injury.

Adam was on the bench against Belgium, but will not make this squad. He'll be a doubt going in to Stoke's match against Manchester City at the weekend.

New Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is looking forward to working with Charlie Adam. "We'll get to know each other on a number of levels. I know his quality and he can affect a game in all manner of ways by the strength of his ability. It's about getting the best out of him and finding the best position for him to be most effective."

Hopefully Hughes will install Adam back in his favored deep-lying central midfield position where he can ping passes to quick wide players. That seems a very Hughes approach and it's the best use of the player. If he returns to a regular starting role, and can get on set-piece duty, he'll return to fantasy relevance.
