Christian Poulsen is hoping that he can play alongside Charlie Adam in the Liverpool midfield this coming season. I think someone should tell Poulsen that Adam is going to be a regular first team player this season and not playing in the reserves with him. I can not see Poulsen getting much game time in the starting lineup this season for Liverpool so the closest Poulsen will get to playing alongside Adam is if Adam is playing for the reserves, which is highly unlikely.

Poulsen said, “Of course, I hope I get a few opportunities myself. Charlie and I can play together. Why not? It doesn’t have to be one or the other.”

You have to commend Poulsen though for being determined to stay at Liverpool this coming season and fight for his place. In my opinion, I just think that no club wants to buy Poulsen so we are stuck with him.

The Danish midfielder is currently away with his national team preparing to take on Scotland where he will be up against Charlie Adam himself. Poulsen had some great things to say about Adam:

“Charlie was a key player for Blackpool and I think he will be a good player for Liverpool as well,” Poulsen told the Daily Record.

“He’s a good passer and can find the attacking players. We have a good dressing room at Anfield and he has fitted straight in as we have a lot of Scots at the club.

“Of course, the pressure is different at Liverpool compared to Blackpool but he has the qualities and we’ve seen in training that he’s a good, strong player.

“Our captain is injured for the early part of the season so I’m not sure if Charlie or Luis Suarez will take our free-kicks but his left foot is a strong weapon for us.

“He’s a really strong player and it’s extra competition for myself but that’s the same at every big club in the Premiership.”
