Wolfsburg have signed Philipp Wollscheid on a season long loan from Stoke with an option to buy. No incoming defender as yet although Porto’s Bruno Martins Indi will be signing shortly on loan, paperwork and international permits are apparently being processed and he’s had his medical.

Meanwhile, Stoke have turned down offers for Charlie Adam from Burnley and Hull. Do hope Adam stays as a great impact sub, although of course the player himself my prefer regular starts.

Stoke City transfer news

Posted in Football, football transfers, Stoke City FC, The Premiership with tags , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2016 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Weekend press reports have Stoke in pole position to sign West Brom striker Saido Berahino. If true, he could sign this week ahead of the players returning for pre-season training next week. One target we won’t be signing is Norwich’s Nathan Redmond who signed for manager-less Southampton.

One player heavily linked with a move away is Charlie Adam who is wanted by newly promoted Burnley and a move that could appeal to Adam as he would be guaranteed more starts.

Adam, Moses and Whitehead

Charlie Adam has signed a new extended contract with the club until 2017, with an option of a further year. Great news as his form since becoming a regular in the starting XI following Bojan’s injury was immense. Speaking of Bojan he is aiming to be back in contention for the opening game of the season against Liverpool.

One player who looks like won’t be signing is Victor Moses if this Guardian news piece is to be believed. Seems he is not keen to be any part of a deal to take Begovic to Chelsea. No formal offers have been made for Begovic yet.

Andy Wilkinson is on a week-by-week contract with the club until he finds himself a new club after being released this summer.

Ex-Stoke player Dean Whitehead has moved clubs again signing for Huddersfield Town.

Rodgers

What a fantastic result and end to the current season 🙂

The goalscorers were Mama Diouf (2), Jon Walters, Charlie Adam, Peter Crouch and Steven N’Zonzi.

Some interesting records broken today:

Steven Gerrard has never lost a Premier League game by more than four goals.

Stoke are the first team to score five goals vs Liverpool in a league game since Coventry in December 1992.

This is Liverpool’s heaviest defeat since the 1950’s.

Stoke last scored more than five goals in a league game back in 1982.

Peter Crouch, with his goal today, became the leading all time scorer from headers in the Premier League.

Stoke’s highest ever win in the Premiership.

* Stoke City will play Brentford in a pre-season friendly on Saturday July 25th.

Stoke City 3-0 Tottenham

What a great team performance today and good to see Marc Muniesa back in defence, no coincidence our defence looked much better today? Plus we had Jack Butland in goal again. Goals from Charlie Adam (his fourth in six games), Steve N’Zonzi and Mama Diouf.

Up to ninth now, not sure we can make eighth spot though.

Stoke City 2-1 Swansea City

Posted in Football, Stoke City, Stoke City FC, The Premiership with tags , , , , on October 19, 2014 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Begovic; Bardsley, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters; Nzonzi, Adam, Diouf, Ireland, Moses; Crouch

Subs: Sorensen, Muniesa, Walters, Cameron, Sidwell, Assaidi, Bojan

A good win for us after a fairly lethargic first half performance which saw Shawcross give away a penalty for shirt tugging. To be fair he has been heading for a booking all season for this! Mind you other players in other teams do this week in, week out too. Charlie Adam got the equaliser from the penalty spot after Victor Moses was fouled in the box (Swansea manager Gary Monk accused Moses of diving after the match). Super Jon Walters bagged the winner and a deserved three points for us. Good to see Geoff Cameron in midfield in the second half and he had a great game.

Few injury concerns ahead of next week’s game away at Southampton including Moses, Arnie and Bardsley – hopefully Whelan will be back.

Sunderland 3-1 Stoke City

Poor defensively again and Charlie Adam got our goal which did even the game out for awhile at 1-1. Really need to get back to a Pulis like defence and stop these lapses of concentration which cost us there and at QPR away. Could see Huth back in place of Wilson if Huth is fit enough.

Worrying the amount of injuries we pick up under Mark Hughes though with Victor Moses off injured and really hope he is back, along with Diouf before our next game. Also in the physio room currently are Geoff Cameron and a long term injury to Peter Odemwingie.

Swansea next at home after the international break and that is a fixture we must get at the very least a draw from.
