Pulis - Adam can be our Berba

Stoke manager Tony Pulis believes Charlie Adam has the potential to do for the Potters what Dimitar Berbatov has done at Fulham.

Charlie Adam: Backed by Pulis to score goals for Stoke

The Bulgarian striker has had an instant impact at Craven Cottage since joining from Manchester United in the summer, scoring five goals in eight Premier League games.

Pulis is backing midfielder Adam, who was a prolific scorer at former club Blackpool but struggled to establish himself at Liverpool, to have a similar effect.

Adam has scored just once this season ahead of Saturday's visit of Fulham at the Britannia Stadium.

But Pulis told The Sun: "We believe he has the ability to do what Berbatov has. Charlie can see a pass and open the door.

"He scored 15 goals at Blackpool and we want him to get 10-15 goals for us.

"But Berbatov's an outstanding player, he's at the top of his game right now, glues everything together and makes it all tick."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
