Dundee’s move to sign veteran midfield playmaker Charlie Adam in September on a two-year deal always looked to be one of the more intriguing transfers of the summer.
Adam, who is a Dundee fan, is currently 35-years-old, and is heading towards the later stages of his footballing career. However, that career has proved to be a successful one, as the player performed well for a host of clubs, most notably Blackpool and Stoke City.
In excellent form
It was always going to be a bit of a gamble signing a player who is coming towards the end of their career. However, James McPake’s move seems to be paying off so far, as Adam has been in excellent form for the Dens Park club.
In 15 games so far, Adam has scored six goals and has eight assists, which is an excellent return. He was superb in Dundee’s most recent game, a 3-1 win over Championship leaders Hearts.
League leaders couldn’t cope with veteran
The Tynecastle club couldn’t cope with Adam’s skills, as he provided assists for Dundee’s first two goals. In fact, in Dundee’s last four league games Adam had six assists.
It is no coincidence that the team’s rise up the table has coincided with Adam’s excellent run of form. If Adam can keep up his excellent run of form, then Dundee should be confident about at least reaching the Championship promotion play-offs.
Who knows, perhaps they can even challenge for the title as well. That might be a bit far-fetched, but Adam is playing very well and that must be great to see for the Dundee fans.
