Gray - considering future

He can be a 12 goals 7 assists a season player with just an above average footballing IQ. He has elite ability, he is fast, fairly strong, has a shot on him and can cross, he only needs to put it together.

He can cross but he doesn't xD

 

He can't shoot but he always does

 

though he is showing sign of improvement. I liked him versus Sheff United and Chelsea

Not arguing with you and not saying he will be world class but not impossible.  He is younger than Mahrez was when he came to us and no one would ever have classed him as anywhere near world class when he came.  We'll see.  I think he has potential to be a very, very, very good PL player. X

 

Can't disagree with that Rumble! I hope I'm wrong and he proves himself and become a star for us.

Gray played okay today, but he is still extremely selfish with the ball.. he does have flair though, no question about that. 

Extremely selfish? No more selfish than Mahrez IMO and passed well at times, and thought those few chances, he was entitled to shoot as in a decent position.

 

As said in the other thread. If he was given more chances, then he may not feel the need to have to score every game, just to try force his way into the team.

 

Thought he was better than OKAY tonight. Out performed Albrighton and so should rightly be pushing to start ahead of him for the weekend. 

 

Shakey must start rewarding fringe players with starts if they are out performing the starting 11. Be interesting to see what he does Saturday, but I'm expecting Gray to be dropped again.

Yes mahrez is selfish. Why are you justifying one players flaw with another? He definitely deserves to start over Albrighton, I'm just pointing out his flaw on what he needs to work on to be perfect.

Because one player's flaw seems to be drastically highlighted over the other's same flaw. I think it's harsh that it is constantly thrown at Gray, even after a decent performance. 

 

Gray to start on Saturday. Agreed on that. Knowing Shakey..  won't happen though.

Disagree that he outperformed Albrighton. 

 

Albrighton understands the defensive aspect so much more. He keeps to the shape of the team, tracks back, tackles and is not out of position like Gray when we don't have the ball. IMO Gray needs to learn the less attractive aspects of team play. 

 

Gray as summed it up for me in the free kick just after half time. Okay, he won the foul, but we have better dead ball players than him, but he put himself first. You could say he took responsibility, but personally I would rather let Ndidi have a go, he can certainly strike a ball.

 

Gray doesn't do enough to warrant automatic start.

Who is a better deadball specialist than Gray?

He needs a run of starts now, the kid is so desperate to impress its hampering his performance in these cameos. Shakespere should tell him he has got 10 games, he doesnt need to do it all on his own and he will be judged based on what he creates for others.

He had 90 minutes.. He started.

 

I was impressed by his dribbling and runs, but you can still see that he lacks in many aspects. 

 

He is definitely the better alternative to Albrighton in the current form though
