Lol so if under gets injured people think albrighton, Perez who isn’t a winger and Barnes is enough. We need another winger 200%

Agreed. If gray goes we need someone else. Like Cantwell, buendia etc

Didnt he only start 3 pl games? Outside of that he was good when he started in the league cup and terrible in the FA cup but if youre talking about the league then 1 good start (west ham), 1 bad start (man u) and one average start (brighton) isnt that bad.

True, it just felt like every time he had a decent cameo and got a start in the league and Cup thst he blew it. It's not easy to take the few opportunities you get and his game is perhaps suited to tiring defences but either way he has never really made either wing position his own.

To be honest a lot of Villa fans could have said the same about Albrighton as we are with Gray at 23/24.

Not as far as I’m concerned. I have worked with several Villa fans and they all

lament the fact that Villa let him go. They alwAys maintain that he was one of their most reliable players.

Well obviously they’ll say that now after how well he’s done with us. I was talking about their opinion 6/7 years ago, following an average spell at Wigan on loan in the Championship.
 

He did do very well for Villa for a couple seasons when he broke through but went off the boil before he joined us.

He’d do well at somewhere like Palace, needs a consistent run of games but he’s not good enough. Think he’s a nice guy but we’ve given him enough chances and he hasn’t taken them. Flashes of brilliance but too inconsistent. If we get anything near 10m for him all praise Rudders

If we were to sell him who should we go for then? As his replacement. 

We’d go with wing options of Barnes, Perez, Under, Albrighton with Castagne and Ricardo capable of playing up there as well (if needed)
 

I think Brendan feels he is surplus to requirements now that we have Under. Especially as he likes to play 3 at the back at times and he seems to trust Albrighton more.

Can’t believe we’re going to sell Gray and keep Albrighton. Ridiculous. 

We have to with Gray's contract situation.

 

He clearly won't sign another here being way down the pecking order and the club won't want to lose him on a free.

 

He has to be sold this summer

Gray's an odd one. Very athletic lad with bags of pace. But he just doesn't seem to have a football brain or lacks that creative inginuity. He can be very exciting when the game is open and he can beat players. I really think he'd suit a counter attacking team and will likely have a decent career. We've moved on from that style now and need players that can cross, score, create and beat a man. I know Albrighton isn't exactly that but you know he'll give 100% each game he plays and with Grays contract situation it makes sense to get something for him now.

I'd disagree. We all know ayoze isn't a winger. Hes a cf. We need 4 options imo
