Message from geoff cameron "hi guys, gee, im sure settling into the city scene here, ive just moved into a house in trent-ham that used to belong to will shakespeare!! So says my new best bud, lee trundle who sold it to me! Apparently it got its name from the famous bacon market, where the slaughtered pigs were transported down stream by barge. Gee, i would have loved to have seen this place in will shakespeares day, apparently he used to have his plays performed at some sort of open air mega theatre called "vale park" which was known as the "globe of the north". Amazing, and will himself used to gain inspiration ftom the cooling towers at meaford power station, which was destroyed by cromwell i believe, lee sold me some genuine meaford breeze blocks for only 20000 bucks each! What a guy..."
I'm well into this Cameron Love Fest. Even my so called 'non club football fan know everything player' mate reckons Cameron looks decent so I take that as a real seal of approval too. Mind you, he doesn't rate Shawcross and thinks Tuncay is the best player to have graced the Prem so actually I'll just stick with my own thoughts. GC, CAN I GET A HELL YEAH!
GEOFF Cameron is ready to push himself to the limit for Stoke City, even though he started his season in January.
The United States star will be favourite to get a call up to Tony Pulis's side at Chelsea on Saturday if right-back Andy Wilkinson is banned by a Football Association disciplinary commission.
Wilkinson has been charged with violent conduct after allegedly elbowing Manchester City's Mario Balotelli last Saturday.
He faces a three-game suspension if found guilty, but Stoke have been granted an extra 24 hours to appeal before today's new 6pm deadline.
Cameron is more used to playing in central midfield or central defence, but filled in when Wilkinson was injured at Wigan three weeks ago.
The new signing says he doesn't mind where he plays.
He's raring to go despite a hectic 2012 which began eight months ago with an international training camp and continued with Houston Dynamo in the MLS.
The 27-year-old said: "It has been busy this year, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.
"The fans here and the facilities are fantastic.
"Every game is like a warrior battle. It is intense and every second has been awesome."
The £1.6m signing was sponsors' man of the match for his debut performance in midfield against Arsenal, and then impressed both in midfield and on the right of the defence at Wigan.
He said: "It is a faster-paced game here. The counter-attack style is unreal. You go from one end to the other much quicker.
"In Houston you couldn't do that when it is 80 or 90 degrees every day.
"The game is more physical and definitely quicker here."
Cameron says he's had a warm welcome in North Staffordshire. He hasn't tried an oatcake, but could yet be convinced of their merits by Peter Crouch, who has had them delivered to Stoke's training ground.

Played well. Considering he had Hazard giving him a tough time he did well. Conceded a one or two FK's because Hazard's a precious little cunt but never dived in and stood his ground well. Going forward he was very good, miles better than Wilko.
Wish he hit that cross a little softer though, great run down the right, he's played in and smashes it across the box as hard as he could ;D Kightly blocked it with his arms instead of trying to get a leg/head on it ;D
He's only from Massachusetts ;D and I met some lad at my uni who's from his home town Attelboro and he plays for the team where Geoff started out. This lad also says he likes our "jerseys" ;D. I have to get a Stoke shirt with Cameron on the back even if it does cost fuck loads to ship it over.

Another excellent game yesterday. He look like a right back which is amazing when you think he had never played there in the USA. The only things he has to sort out are his crosses and a tendancy to get sucked into the centre. He gets crosses in very well and the direction is fine but they are slightly over hit (maybe 2 yards too long) as often as not. If he can sort that out he could be our right back for years to come.
If he is a better centre back than he is a right back he must be some player!
barmyarmy: Feel sorry for you lads as a rams fan you will have a boring season under the two faced manager we were glad went as soon as the going gets tough he will slither away to another club ask a Birmingham fan
