Gray - considering future

Recommended Posts

Myself and others I talk about Leicester football with have noticed Gray had often appeared sulky when he's seen on the bench.

Just think his attitude is his main downfall at times, but want him to say as he's a potential game-changer at very good value we paid for him.

He's come off the bench and looked great. Many subsequent games he's started he has done nothing. Get some consistency to your game instead of just cutting in from the left and hitting a shot over the bar and maybe you'll play more, son.

If someone offers £22 million for him I think we should take it. He hasn't shown any end product at all so far in his career. Of course he has some potential but personally I can't see that he's improved at all since joining us.

Wow - his release clause went up 10 million in just a month. If we hang on until august we can get £52mill !!

 

he is frustrated - good, he should be. Would be concerned if he wasn't. Put in the hard yards and take your chance when it comes. He didn't shine against Sunderland and MA took his opportunity when it came. De aria has to do the same over the next few games when chances arise for him.

Sell for £22m? One good season and you could double that in today's market.

 

Sounds like he does have a release clause though, I would guess Steve Walsh is the one who has confirmed it.

Seems so sulky. Get your head down and stop hinting and moping on social media all the time!

It can take years for a player like Gray to show consistency. Look at Wilf Zaha, now looking an international standard player.

The only thing that will stop Gray becoming a regular and maybe one of the best wingers in the country is himself. He needs to learn more about the game and drop a bit of his attitude, I like that he has some but he needs to work a lot harder for the team, no one is the prem these days can afford to carry players.

Never been sure on Gray. Lads obviously got bags of talent and I've been impressed by him but I have always felt that he probably sees us as a stop-gap to a bigger club. That might be me being unfair on him though

I don't see where this one good season is going to come from though, he's played well over 100 professional games now and he still has no composure in the final third, I'd have thought if he was going to gain that he would've by now.

Zaha had show some sort of ability to create and score goals in the past though, Gray never has. He has scored 10 goals in 124 performances, which is poor for a winger.

His not really be given that much game time though considering how well he has played for England U21s 

986 mins 3 assists one goal (2 full games)

 

what do people expect from gray?

 

Mahrez 

2489 17 full games

mins

5 goals how many pens?

3 assists

If we want to progress next season, Gray should be 4th choice on the wing. We need a reliable, consistent back up for Albrighton & Mahrez.

I like Gray don't get me wrong, but £22 million for a winger who's scored 1 goal in the equivalent of 11 games would be a great deal for us. 

Mahrez is a bit different, teams set up specifically to stop him, he almost always is doubled if not tripled up on making it hard for him to be effective. However it can actually benefit the team as it opens up gaps elsewhere to be exploited.

We sell this lad easily now, we'll regret it later down the line. He will be a top player, given consistent meaningful game time and appropiate coaching.

its not 1 goal in 11 though as his mins are made up of 20 min appearances as opposed to mahrez and albrighton

986/90 is near enough 11 games. If a player can't make something happen in 20 minute cameos against tired defences he's not likely to be better playing a full 90 minutes.

I'd take it.

He has potential but lacks patience. He comes across as being a lad who thinks he's better than what he thinks he is. If he goes it will be for the money. He will just be a bench warmer for the big clubs. If he rides it out here he's got a chance to be a  future star and England international.

im not sure thats the case, there are many variables involved.

The score 

How the team are playing

 

just because you are on the pitch for 20 mins doesnt mean you see much of the ball, the more minutes you are on the pitch the more likely you are going to be involved in play.

 

Mahrez has played 17 full games to Grays two and almost 3 times the game time, yet that have both provided the same amount of assists
