Big Time Charlie

Big Time Charlie

In an astonishing twist to the Charlie Adam transfer saga, the player's dad has come out and criticised Blackpool for not selling the player to Liverpool.

After claims that the Seasiders have rejected an improved bid of £6.5 million from Liverpool for their captain, Charlie's dad has kicked up a storm in the national press by saying:

'I don't even think this is about money. It's because Charlie took them to a tribunal over the bonus they owed him.

'This is their pay-back. They are saying, 'You won't make anything out of this, we have got you under contract'.

'Liverpool's offer is 13 times what Blackpool paid for Charles. And they are turning it down? They have been more than compensated for him already.

'Mr Oyston has got to realise it is somebody's life and future that he is dealing with here. I think it is petty. This should be a time for common sense to prevail.'

Common sense eh? That's rich...

Adam's dad also branded the Seasiders a 'cheap-skate club', and whilst you have to say that he probably has a point there, he's well wide of the mark with the rest of his comments.

If he truly wants his son to move to Liverpool (presuming he's not just a Kenny Moyes (Charlie's agent) stooge), then surely Adam Snr should know that Karl Oyston doesn't respond to such attacks and that the best chance of getting what he wants is just to keep schtum and see if a deal can be struck?

I hate to think what he was like when anyone stole Charlie's dinner money...

charlie wanted to play for blackpool... he signed a contract...i want charlie to do well. i want him to be on on good dosh... god , i love the guy to be fair.... but he was warming the bench for rangers befor .. liverpool would not of even looked at him then... never mind payed millions! rangers let him go for 500k , so they didnt rate him that much...... i understand a father wanting the best for his son, and i do feel we owe charlie for all he has done for blackpool..... but i feel he owes us to , as we have made him the 7 million pound player he is, showed off his talents to the prem league, and given him the chance to play at a top like liverpool and be the great player we all know he is and can be prob even better with the right club.... i think the offers will still be there in summer, and i also think that no one is being petty..... we need him and if we stay up , he is worth 46 million to us ... as he will be a key part in keeping us up..... i would just like to add.. whateva happens.... Charlie Adam is a great footballer and man...... and i hope he goes on to do big things.... he deserves it... love ya man !

As posted on Skysports: With respect, I think Mr Adam Snr. needs to wind his neck in a bit and keep his frustrations to himself. Blackpool are a business and a football club, that has worked miracles on a shoe string budget in recent years. To replace Charlie Adam in that squad would cost significantly more than the 6.5million Liverpool have been reported to have offered. Hense why he is going no where till a valid or stronger ofer of £10 million is on the table. A sensible offer would be - a £7.5 million NOW... with a further 2.5 million after 20 league appearances and 20% of a future sale. But thats my take on things.

Whoever wrote this article should have researched the Adam Family before doing so as I dont know who you think you are dealing with unless you know the Adam family and their history in Dundee - The comment of Charlies dinner money is innapropriate.
