Gray runs out of ideas and that usually means he surrenders possession which is never ideal with a slow back line like we have at our disposal. I'm struggling to see any improvement over last year or two years ago. We need a midfielder capable of scoring 15 goals a season if we are ever to challenge anywhere near the top of the league again. A top side usually relies on one prolific attacking midfield player in their starting 11, for me Frank Lampard was always the best in that role for club regularly contributing 20 goals a season for Chelsea..
I cannot ever see Gray being a shadow of the likes of Lampard in terms of contribution to goal scoring.
