Demarai Gray

Recommended Posts

What I find particularly annoying is that when he balls something up he then stands still for 30 seconds, waving his hands around in frustration, as if showing the manager how cross he is, will make it alright. 

Agree with most of the posts on here, had every chance. Time to move him on, he's now blocking a place for some of the other u23s.

Gray's career has stalled somewhat in recent seasons. He should be a regularly first-teamer but he hasn't shown the promise he is capable of

This. At least when Perez messes up a dribble or times the run incorrectly he works back and tries to get stuck in.

 

Gray was shit today.

In fairness to Gray he did have a good match against West Ham when we played our second string lineup.

 

But with his contract running out the club has a decision to make this summer. I'd be telling him he can find a new club since I'm sure our recruitment team have identified some wide men to bring in. He hasn't flourished much under Rodgers which is a real worry. 

 

Genuine question - what do you guys think his level is? Lower Prem or decent championship side?

Very thoughtful of Brendan to play Gray while resting Chilwell. He obviously understands that the fans must have someone to moan about.

Yawn.

Championship, maybe get back in the prem if he has a few good seasons there.

Grey is like a duracell bunny 

 

Makes noise,  moves around and runs forever  but apart from that is fairly useless 

 

It's down to hunger and desire and I'm not sure he has that now he has made his coin

Shepshed Dynamo.

He couldn’t impose himself on a slightly weakened top half championship team. He hasn’t got the speed of thought to be a top level player.  Hardly ever a one touch pass always 3-4 and the pace at the top doesn’t allow that unless you are really special

Been saying this for years and have been shot down by people writing 'flair' in capital letters. 

 

He's not equipped to succeed. Physically he's capable but he's not sharp enough mentally. 

 

His stats are abysmal.

Looking forward to him having a couple of decent cameos against confidence-sapped opposition and people saying “see! All he needed was [another] chance!”

 

He’s been here 4 years now (he was part of the title winning squad ffs). He’s got one of the best head coaches in the world to learn under and his improvement in that time is utterly trivial, not just to when Puel was manager but compared to when he first arrived. 
 

Sell him, he might well have a good Premier League career somewhere else but he’s an asset with *some* value and is clogging up a spot in the squad.

Harvey has had a run of starts to recover some form and confidence ......dimi rarely gets two starts as he is never forgiven for his meh performance .....Brendan sees them in training and clearly feels dimi doesn’t do enough ....... would be good for him to get a three/four game starting run to get some rhythm .

Gray is about 2 years older and has started about 3 times as many games for us as Barnes. I was reading/hearing “all he needs is a run of starts” about 3 years ago.

 

Puel him that chance repeatedly. That Rodgers has prioritised Barnes’ development tells its own story.

It happened earlier on in the season, around the time we beat Palace at Selhurst - and plenty on here were hankering for him to start. He isn't very good, reasonable squad filler but that's about it.

I think Gray should either go out on loan or be moved on, Championship player at best.

Cant loan him out unless we get a replacement as we are short of wingers. He'll leave permanently in the summer as his contract is up in 2021.

He really is another version of Jeff Schlupp.

 

Comes up with the goods here and there, but overall his end product isn't good enough and he has the brain the size of a pea.

 

He isn't good enough, move him on and get in a quality winger that we are desperately craving.
