Demarai Gray

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

I think he has shown what he is capable of, and that is mainly the issue. He isn't good enough, the right wing is the position we desperately need to improve.

Just seems a bit thick.

 

Contrary to popular belief you do need a certain level of intelligence to play the game well at the highest level.

Can see him going as a makeweight in a summer deal and as such we may never hear what his valuation was (insert your £1 joke here). Fans of other clubs tend to rate him but youtube clips and MOTD highlights are one thing, reality is another, £70 million plus Gray for Zaha perhaps, even though Hodgson won't be able to ask for him in person.

 

Thought today Rodgers could have switched Perez and Gray for a while to try to do something different and give Brentford something different to think about, it might have helped them both and the whole side in that long spell where they were nullifying us. Think Rodgers was more interested in seeing Perez in the central role for a sustained period and he had started well.

Rodgers is using a lot of this season to decide those under contract are in his plans

 

Gray maybe one of those that is moved on in the summer.

It’s disappointing he looked like a real quality prospect shoots when he should pass pass when he should gets quite greedy passes go array, maybe sending the lad out on loan to get regular football may be the answer maybe also should offer him to Hull in part ex for Jarrod Bowen ?

I think today's performance really told a story, he had the perfect opportunity to impress and his whole performance was dismal, just shows that players develop at certain stages of their career, some continue, others slow, some stop.

Unfortunately Grays seems to have stopped.

He would do OK at a club like Brighton but he's nowhere near good enough for city now.

Needs a fresh start somewhere else. Of course hindsight is 20/20 but it seems crazy that we ever turned down 25m+ for him. Guess we should hope all that wasn't true. Surely some awful club like Stoke would give us 15ish for him? Still a tidy profit for us. Cant see him getting any better than he is now.

Really pleased that Gray played today so that everybody can slag him off. At least it gives Chilwell some respite from the abuse that he has been getting.

I really wonder about our "fans" sometimes

Wasn't it Gray who nearly walked into a rotor blade getting off the club helicopter during our title winning season? Woeful positional sense.

We discuss performance that is what forums do. These players are very highly paid and that privilege comes with the need to do the job to the best of your ability . If you don't you will be criticised but it should not be "abuse" . Chilwell has been criticised but the vast majority of that has been constructive.

Gray has been in/around the first team way before the likes of Barnes, Chilwell and Choudhury. All of the he latter have developed and can offer much more to the first team than Gray. Different managers have never seemed to be able to tune him. 

 

Season after season, we hope it will be his time where he goes from showing cameo glimpses of excellence to consistenty. Unfortunately, he never delivers and when given an opportunity, it goes to waste.

I wouldn't be totally shocked if he was a Bournemouth player this time next week.

Anyone free on Friday to drive him there??
