Adam struggled for regular first team football following his move from Liverpool two years ago but he has paid tribute to former boss Tony Pulis and the job he did for the club.

Pulis departed at the end of last season following a total of 10 years - over two spells - at the Britannia Stadium where he helped establish the club as a regular fixture in the Premier League.

"It's a fresh start for everybody and we look forward to it," Adam told Sky Sports News.

"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."

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.

guess Storey was able to cancel his planned trip to the shops this weekend. He won't need to buy any food for a while because he's really dining out on those Angel/angel puns. It's going to be a long season.
