With the Potters and Paul Lambert fighting for their Premier League survival, Charlie Adam returns from suspension to help aid the fight.
Let's face it, at this point in his career Charlie Adam is more last ditch hope than he is integral part of a winning Premier League starting eleven. That said, with relegation looming as a more and more likely possibility, Paul Lambert will be happy to have Adam and his knack for scoring the odd spectacular goal available off the bench but it seems unlikely that Adam will start with Burnley coming to the Bet365 Stadium in Week 35.

After another defeat, a 2-1 loss at home to Everton, Stoke City is running out of time to fight off relegation.

Amid a massive snowstorm that hit the Bet365 Stadium, the Potters didn't do themselves any favors by playing much of the match with 10 men after veteran midfielder Charlie Adam was given a straight red card in the 30th minute for a high, late challenge on Wayne Rooney. Yet down a man and 1-0 late in the second half, Eric Choupo-Moting gave the home side some hope with an equalizer. Just five minutes after coming into the game, the winger latched onto a sublime Joe Allen pass to knot the score at 1-1, but left immediately afterward because of injury. But it wasn't enough as Cenk Tosun scored his second of the game for Everton for the win.

Charlie Adam has expressed his desire to extend his stay at Stoke City to a sixth year after a successful campaign thus far.

The 31-year-old has started 15 Premier League matches for the Potters this season, all during a run of 17 games, and has recorded one goal and three assists so far this season. The former Liverpool signing has been linked with Fenerbahce and Burnley in recent months, but said he sees his future at the Britannia as he continues to play a critical role in manager Mark Hughes' plans. "I'm looking to extend as soon as possible. This is a terrific club and I've had a great few years here. It's constantly evolving, with better and better players being brought in all the time. That can make it harder to get a game, right enough, but I enjoy that sort of challenge."

Charlie Adam scored a penalty after Joe Allen had won it to put Stoke City up 1-0 at the Emirates but they couldn't hold the lead and eventually capitulated 3-1.

The Potters had their moments. Adam's penalty was the obvious one but Peter Crouch had a great chance immediately upon his introduction that forced a strong save from Petr Cech. Overall, Joe Allen and Marko Arnautovic were dangerous all afternoon but they couldn't quite come up with the final ball. It was a solid effort on the road against a title contender but not quite enough to actually earn a point.

Charlie Adam has been on the periphery of the Stoke City squad but another injury to Shaqiri and Marko Arnautovic's suspension have Adam poised to be a significant contributor again.

Adam certainly shouldn't be high up in your thinking about players that might be productive in Week 11 but if you need a bargain to balance out more expensive choices in salary cap formats or a one-off bench player to come in for a draft league team, Adam is a solid option to consider. West Ham have consistently struggled in defense this season and their best center back, Winston Reid, is also suspended for yellow card accumulation. Adam is a sneaky good play if you're shopping on the discount rack.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes confirmed that the club has no plans to let midfielder Charlie Adam leave this summer.

The former Liverpool man and Blackpool star has seen his playing time steadily diminish over the past couple of seasons, but Hughes said Adam remains a major part of the Potters' plan for the upcoming season: "I think there was a little bit of interest in Charlie, but we haven't encouraged that. Charlie is a part of what we are doing here moving forward, so that's not a situation that will develop." Burnley was reportedly interested in a move for the veteran midfielder after the loss of Joey Barton to Glasgow Rangers but will now have to look elsewhere for midfield help.

Mark Hughes provided a mixed injury update with the news that Charlie Adam could be ruled out for up-to six weeks while Ryan Shawcross might return early than anticipated.

Adam limped out of Tuesday nights’ Capital One semi-final at Anfield because of injury: "Charlie unfortunately has a pretty bad tear in his calf. We think he will be out for 5-6 weeks and that’s a big blow for us and for him," Mark Hughes revealed during Thursdays’ FA Cup briefing. However, the Welshman was able to confirm that the back injury suffered by captain Shawcross at Leicester is not as bad as originally feared: "Initially we said he would be out for up to a month at the most, but we hopefully he will be back sooner." Marko Arnautovic will face a late fitness test as he continues to struggle with an ongoing back complaint.

Charlie Adam and Ibrahim Afellay will both miss the Potters' trip to the Emirates as they serve suspensions picked up as the club dropped a 1-0 decision to West Brom in Week 4.

Mark Hughes will hope that Bojan, not listed in the Stoke City injury report, will be ready to resume his duties as the architect of the Potters' attack. That means that Charlie Adam might likely have been relegated to the bench regardless of his suspension. If Bojan isn't quite ready after two additional weeks to recover then Mark Hughes will be looking at Stephen Ireland as his attacking midfielder in all probability.

Charlie Adam has signed and extension at Stoke City that will see him stay at the Britannia through 2017 with and option to extend a further year.

Believe it or not, Charlie Adam is only 29-years-old. Despite looking well into his 30s and running like he's in his 40s, the player was effective for the Potters when he played last season. With Bojan returning from injury, Adam could well begin the season as a starter before reverting to a reserve role if/when Bojan is ready to go.

Stoke City were kept off the scoreboard and Charlie Adam was largely quiet with peripheral statistics as his fantasy production fell off significantly from the previous week.

Charlie Adam has enjoyed a revival in recent weeks due in large part to increased opportunity caused by injuries within the Stoke City squad. With Bojan and Victor Moses out, Mark Hughes has struggled to find the right combination of attacking players to keep the Potters on the score sheet. One of the beneficiaries had been Adam who went without a goal from mid-October to early April but has now scored four of his six total league goals over the past seven matches including six starts. He is a good bet to start the finale given his production and the lack of alternatives.

Stoke City fired on all cylinders, scoring three times and keeping Tottenham out in a 3-0 win.

The Potters were brilliant today, with Charlie Adam keeping up his fine form, He headed in a Mame Biram Diouf cross that touched off a Spur defender on the way to open the scoring. Steven N'Zonzi scored next after an Adam cross toward the box resulted in a collision between Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier. Diouf would then cap off the scoring by tapping in a cross from Marko Arnautovic at the near post. Jack Butland, the future at keeper for the Potters, did not make a mistake and earned a clean sheet.

Charlie Adam will play with a mask in Week 35 to protect a broken nose he picked up in training during the week.

Adam has been hot for about a month. The hope given Adam's injury isn't so much that he will play, it seems highly likely that he will. The hope is that having to wear a mask won't distract him from continuing to produce strong fantasy outings.

Charlie Adam put together his best match yet this season with 23 points in the Yahoo system in Stoke City's Week 34 draw with Sunderland.

Adam reached his gaudy total with a goal, three shots on target, four successful crosses, two corners won, and a pass intercepted. The big week brought his four week total to 49 points in the Yahoo system, nearly a third of his season total of 163. Adam has been playing well enough that it is hard to imagine Mark Hughes not starting him. If he is av available/affordable in your format then you should definitely be taking a careful look even with Swansea the next opponent coming up.

Charlie Adam scored another great goal to equalize an early Sunderland goal and seal the final score between Stoke City and Sunderland at 1-1.

In a match that saw an Asmir Begovic error gift Connor Wickham a first minute goal, Charlie Adam led the charge as Stoke City equalized and eventually drew the match. The early error not withstanding, the Potters were the better team for nearly the entire match dominating possession and shots on target on their home turf. Despite some strong opportunities they couldn't find a winner and had to settle for a 1-1 draw with the Black Cats. Adam's goal was his third in four matches in the month of April.
