Grot

Grot named in our 25 man squad ...... He's out injured long term and is out of contract yet is in our 25 man squad.

Some depth we have up top eh. Always hoped Bielsa would get something out of him, but he's equally done barely anything of note during his loan spells. Hoping he some day finds a team that he's firing on all cylinders for.

He's actually done alright during his loans to the Eredivisie, and playing as a winger, which meant that we played him out of position 90% of the time. Still only 21 as well, I think.

Not sure why he's been named in the squad. Perhaps so that we hit a minimum number, as a lot of first team players haven't been registered due to being under 21.

Feel bad for the guy, personally.

Yep I feel for the guy too.

Pilloried & abused because he wasn’t an instant goal machine.

I probably empathise with him a lot because I was also played out of position a lot because of my height

A lot of the players were average pre Bielsa. Lets see what happens if Bielsa gets him going then I suspect we shall see a top player.

His base potential is high according to the Dutch, but was raw for those 2 years. Worth seeing if he can push on under a man who has proven he can shine tur

Is he really only 22 ? Still time to become a world-beater. I saw some flashes of real skill and athleticism in with the rawness and naivety in his few first-team appearances. If Bielsa sees something that's good enough for me
